I’m a Godfather…edited to add a 2005 survey stolen from Meg

I don’t want to tie up the phone lines very long here at Ian’s but I just wanted to put a quick update on here to let everyone know that I am a Godfather now.

Patti gave birth to James Christopher on December 7, 2005 at 9:00 pm eastern time. James Christopher weighed 9 pounds 6 ounces and was 22 inches long.

I got to hold him and I must say that I was beaming from ear to ear. One of the greatest thrills of my life was to hold my Godson and know that he is a namesake to me and to our dear friend Chris Candido. They have decided to make Mickie the Godmother.

I will have so many more thoughts on this later when I do a full update. I just had to get on here and post this.

Maniwa took pictures tonight…hopefully he can get them online shortly or sometime tomorrow…I took several pics with a disposable camera. I think I broke my digital camera at the Brad Paisley, Sara Evans, Sugarland concert on Sunday that we went to…I’ll have to wait until I get home to find out. I will get a picture cd with the disposable camera pics so I can put them on here.

Good day.

Here is a survey stolen from Meg on myspace. It’s been awhile since I’ve done surveys on here so deal with it.

40 questions about 2005.

1) Was 2005 a good year for you?
January to November 2005 was the worst 11 months of my life. I have already done a live journal going over this so I won’t go into it again. November to now has just been fantastic. Morris beats Joliet Catholic. Morris wins state championship. Bears def. Packers in Chicago for the first time since I was in high school. I’m a godfather. Things are going as great as they will ever go for me. This is my peak. I’m allowing myself to enjoy it which is amazing in itself.
