I sentence you to 20 more years.

While I had every intention of going to Pet's Inc this weekend with my wife and daughter only to look and make the statement that "Oh, darn they don't have any kittens" (I knew this because I called a day or two before).  However, after I called someone must have dropped off this Siamese/Ragdoll/whatever mix and my plan was shot.  While I tried and tried, I found no allies and it was 2 against 1.  I was looking at finishing my cat sentence in 10 years since Cinder "Bug" is 11 years old already.  Now I must admit that our new kitten named "Ginger" by Morgan is incredibly cute and shy and has only slept and laid on our chest and lap since we got her.  Yes, I'm the sucker that let two girls talk me into it, there were tears, promises and everything.  I didn't stand a chance.  When I woke up this morning I had intended on going to Shealy's BBQ and maybe catching a movie, Not Now.

Happy Chinese New Year

This is the year of the Tiger.  We celebrated by going to the Columbia Museum of Art for their Family Fun Day Chinese New Year Celebration.  They had a traditional Fan Dance & Lion Dance along with face painting and paper cutting.  Then we went to a Chinese Buffet for lunch.

Snow in SC, 8.6 inches you say, can't be...

Don't believe me here are some pictures.  This was the 5th highest snow fall ever recorded in Columbia, SC.  As usual with heavy snow fall or ice storms we lost power for about 3 hours.  Morgan had a blast.  She got out of school early and Becky picked her up.  I had phone calls from both Morgan's grandparents, a friend and becky about picking her up.  Too bad no one cares about her, I'm kidding.  As I was driving home from work Becky had Morgan call my cell and she was screaming that "IT'S SNOWING!!!".  She couldn't wait to make a snow angel, make a snow man and throw snowballs at me.  I love that kid.  We made the most of the cold weather.  It reminded me why I love fresh snow and don't like the slush afterwords.  Fresh snow makes everything look so clean.

What we did Saturday 02/06/10

Yesterday we went to Carter & Holmes Orchids and Park Seed Garden Center.  Morgan Loved the Orchid place but unfortunatly Park Seed was closed until spring.  It was a fun trip anyway.  We bought a phalaenopsis orchid and stopped in Ninety-Six and for lunch at Mig's.  This was a good road trip.

Winter Gymnastics Recital

Today Morgan had a Gymnastics Recital at PAC.  The look of that smile says it all.  I even saw her do things I didn't know she could do.  Great Job Morgan!!!

Morgan is in an art show

Last night Morgan and I attended the 4th Annual WinterFest Art Exhibit for the entire school district of Lexington 1.  Morgan was one of 10 White Knoll Elementary students that had art submitted by her Art teacher Mrs Merett.  Morgan was the only Kindergarten submission out of 6 Kindergarten classes, now that's impressive.  Here's a link to see: http://wkeartsmarts.blogspot.com/2010/01/winterfest-art-exhibit.html
Gotta Love that kid, we do.

Wireless Printserver

Finally installed a wireless print-server at the house. Now everyone can print, Yea...

Finally making the move to HD

We did it we are going all HD. Anyone interested in a 48" standard def. TV, just kidding. Can't wait... Ok, I'm now happy with DirecTV again, for now. I finally got someone that knew what they were doing and they didn't charge me for the HD Upgrade. Now I have to get rid of my 2nd Gen Tivo, any takers?

A new start.

Happy New Year (2010). Welcome to the latest version of the SCCREIGHTONS web blog. There's lots to say but little time to say it so to sum up the coming new year:
  • We've been waiting for almost 3.5 years for our second China adoption and fear that it may never happen.
  • I (Pete) started a new job.
  • Becky is still at her job.
  • Morgan is Growing, Talking and Moving more and more each day. Our life seems to revolve around her schedule.
  • We are now down to 1 cat (Bug) and we miss the other terribly (Pooh).
  • We are also becoming Googlized. (Free is good)
  • Just saw Avatar and loved it.
  • We are making the final conversion to HD everything this year.

This blog will replace the old sccreightons.com and start fresh from 2010 on. All past posts will be gone. We are starting over, this year is a fresh start and we look forward to it.

That's a good start and I'll add more later.
