What not to do when hanging Christmas Lights

Thursday, November 20, 2008


Important Disclaimer!

If any little ones are watching right now, I would encourage you to have them close their eyes or move away from the computer at this time.

A friend of mine works for TMZ and he has been assigned a mission classified as
"NOdinglekringle." I have been privileged to some confidential information that is very disturbing. Appealingly Mr. Kringle is a woman, disguised as a man. Although this hasn't been released to the public, I will provide you with some very disturbing images.

PLEASE! Keep this hush, hush until further notice.

Also, it is being uncovered that a large amount of funding for the "NO ON 102" campaign, came personally from Kringle himself.

This leads us to believe that Mrs. Klaus, may in fact have a wiener.

She definilty Jason's...

If angels snored, I'm sure it would sound something like this. Our little babies are so full of life and already their personalities shine through their confused little bodies. We are so blessed to have two sweethearts and overwhelmed with joy.

Babies, Babies and more Babies...and then one more!

The babies arrived with no initial complications and the c-section went very smooth – fantastic staff too! The girls were sent to NICU after arrival to help with some slight lung prematurity. They were off oxygen within the first 12 hours and have spent their time in NICU now to ensure they can maintain their body temperatures and feed. They’re doing much better in eating this morning and hopefully we can back off the IVs within the next 12 hours. We should all be able to go home Saturday or Sunday the latest.

The girls are so sweet and are little cuddle bugs. They make little squeaks and their cries sound like a little lamb. I’ve attached a few photos with more to come once all the tubing is off. Their big sister Jillian is anxiously waiting to hold them and love on them. Since its RSV season, we have to limit visitors to only family over the age of 12 and Jilly is pretty upset about that. Once we’re out of the hospital, please come by and visit if you can.

Kelsey and Kayley have arrived!!!!!!!!!!

Live from the hospital...We are elated to announce the arrival of Kayley Lynn and Kelsey Ann who arrived this morning at 11:05am. Fortunately, Jason didn't pass out and pulled through the surgery with flying colors. Stacy is still recovering and finding the right mix of pain control medicines. Kayley weighed 5lbs 13oz and was 19 1/2" long and Kelsey was 5lbs 3oz and was 18 1/2" long. They both cuddled up with us in the operating room and are currently spending time in NICU for some light premature breathing help.

At present we cannot have any visitors, as the hospital has been very busy today and we're still in triage. We hope the babies will be out of NICU soon too, so when you visit you'll be able to hold these bundles of joy. As soon as we have a room and are settled in, we'll let y'all know.

Thank you for your continued prayers and thoughts.

Jason, Stacy, Jillian, Kelsey, Kayley

Baby Update

This will probably be my final pre-delivery babies update since we only have 18 days to go. Had my weekly ultrasound and check-up today and the girls are doing so great!!! They both were breathing very well today and are charting on course for weight and development. Kayley weighed in at 4lbs 7oz and Kelsey at 4lbs 8oz. AND….They both have LOADS of hair!!!! J

Docs won’t stop my labor if I go now, so it’s just a matter of time. They’re fairly certain that I’ll make it to November 4th, so stop by the voting polls before coming to visit at the hospital! C-section is scheduled for 10:30am at Chandler Regional. I’ll probably be in there for 3 days, so please stop by if you’re feeling healthy and want to visit. Thanks to everyone’s support through this pregnancy; it has certainly been a journey.

Just found this picture of Stacy and I. It was taken on one of our first dates. The Taco Bell I took her to has a really nice patio. It almost makes up for not buying the grande meal that I wasn't able to afford. Just Kidding...it's Del Taco

The many styles of Me...past and present

January 15, 1980: With my "Leave It To Beaver" good looks and impeccable complexion, this picture is in my top 5. Although, Jean Regal Jeroux's lighting techniques did help...lol Rest in peace J.R.

March 22, 1959: As a young apprentice for D.L. Merovingian , I would often find myself going days without eating. I often worried about how little my face grew during this time.

June 5, 1969: This is my favorite picture, only because I had to shave my head a week later for boot camp. It took me 1.5 years to bring out the curls and fruitful bounce you see displayed and I'm afraid my hair stylist died before he could tell me his secret.

October 1, 1979: With my modeling career in peril, it was nearly impossible posing for this one featured in "Mode for men". To make things worse, I was trying to be sexy with a broken jawbone...ouch!

August 26, 1971: This picture was taken after I placed 1st in the New Haven, CT badminton Tournament. Seven people were disqualified for fighting. This did not affect my game.

July 20, 1955: Most people do not believe this picture is really me..it is folks and it was taken only 5 days after I lost a testicle fighting wildfires in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Lets remember this together...

In 2003 Ghyslain Raza filmed himself acting like an absolute idiot. Obviously alone, Ghyslain used his high school's camcorder to record himself acting out his favorite scene from Star Wars. His first mistake? Doing something as ridiculous as this... at school. The second mistake was partially filming over a varsity basketball game and leaving it for someone else to find.

The video eventually made it into the wrong hands and within in a week it was viewed more than a million times. The internet is enjoyed by everyone except Ghyslain Raza and the many others who leave incriminating proof of their absolute stupidity behind. Stunts like this easily justify the ballooning advertising budgets of oral contraceptive and IUD manufactures.

*WARNING*If this is your first time seeing this video, you might want to put a diaper on. I made potties in my pants my fist time watching. :)

Baby Update

A quick baby update. Each girl is almost 3lbs now (Kayley 2lbs 12.3oz and Kelsey 2lbs 11.1oz) and they’re definitely cramped in there, but developing really well. Dr. said my fetal fibranectin results were negative which means that I shouldn’t be going into labor in the next 2 weeks – thank goodness, right!?! Negative results are accurate 96% of the time. She says my progress is doing great (I’ve gained 17lbs which is low, but the babies are developing so we’re good) and she expects me to make it to at least 34 weeks as of right now (October 21st) provided I maintain what I’m doing now. We’ve kept the c-section scheduled for “Super Tuesday” Election Day on November 4th at 10:30am at Chandler Regional Hospital, but reality and statistics indicate I probably won’t make it to this date. Whenever it is, I hope you all can make it to see the babies! Thanks to all the prayers and positive thinking. I’ll keep everyone updated if things change.
