Corbett's first day on a motorcycle

For your viewing pleasure, I present a video taken by Dorson, Corbett's Dad, on Thanksgiving weekend as Corbett falls off the motorcycle. The best part of the video is commentary right at the end of the video so hold your laughs until the end. Please remember this was my very first day on a motorcycle.

Playing with the box, not the toy

Marshall got a new car this week. It's one of those little tikes plastic cars. We had to get him one as an early Christmas present because he pulls kids out of their own cars. I guess we give in pretty easily. Anyway, now that he has the car, he likes the box better. I know this a phenomenon that is shared by many parents. For all those that can relate, enjoy this short clip:
