    Shameless 

    So Nicole and I recently got hooked on this website called Swagbucks.  Basically they randomly give you swagbucks just for searching the internet through their search bar.  Once you have enough bucks you can trade them for gift cards, merchandise, etc.  I think in about 1-2 weeks Nicole got a $5 amazon.com card just from using the swagbucks search bar everytime she searched the internet.

    Anyway, if you’re my friend sign up through my referal and I’ll get some extra bucks, thanks.

    ps, I’m a Professional Engineer now so I think that makes me cooler or nerdier or both…

    Job News 

    Hey guys, I haven’t posted in awhile even though life has been crazy, but here goes.  About 4 months ago I got laid off (wah wah).  I was actually pretty ok with it.  Nicole didn’t have a job either because she was staying home with Zach.  So here we are with a new baby and zero income.  The thing is its been a lot of fun.  We’ve totally been trusting in the Lord that he will provide and the peace that comes with that has been more than sufficient.  Thanks to a Dave Ramsey finance class we took at church we had our “Emergency Fund” all setup for just this type of situation.  The timing was actually great, I got laid off in September so I had lots of time to study for my Professional Engineer exam at the end of October (still waiting on results).  Also hanging out with Zach while he’s growing and changing so fast has been a lot better than working.

    So anyway, I got a new job in Richmond this week.  So that’s cool.  I’m not totally excited about working again because just hanging out all day has been fun, but I guess getting paid is good too.

    I think I’m done.  God is good!

    BTW… 

    I had a dream last night that I was watching this band perform.  Josh was the drummer and Hunter was lead singer/key-tar player and he didn’t so much sing, but talked in a German accent.  I wish I remembered the words of the song because in my dream I was crying from laughing so hard.

      i need to experience this dream.

      i wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that sometimes i would sing worship songs in an “international” accent that switched between russian, transylvanian, and british. also i love a good keytar

        or the guy carrying the “H” flag trips and falls, and then everyone behind him falls over him. That would be pretty sad.

      There are a lot of guys in this picture who I would absolutely mess with in real life but for one reason or another look dangerous in this pic. Harris looks wider than Dwight Howard.

      Is blanking cleaning the toilet because he sprayed poop every where again? Never understood why he would poop in the hall bathroom, and the somehow manage to poop not down but backwards. A baffling character indeed.

        Should say Blanco not Blanking but its appropriate since when I usually refer to him it contains some form of a curse word.

      That was the dirtiest bathroom ever. 6 guys, 1 shower, need I say more?

    I think these pictures were from the computer room trashing night or some other night we were feeling silly.  Incidently I think I blocked out the suntun lotion thing.  I’m sure my wrath was hard and furious though.Willard Mug 001Willard Mug 003

      we never told you about the sun tan lotion. we just prayed you wouldn’t find out or that your keyboard wouldn’t just stop working. We cleaned it as well as we could.

    Where are they now? 

    Yay for blogging.  Steve I know a lot of people said my old blogs were funny.  I think what really happens is when I first meet someone I come across as shy and reserved, so any semi-humorous comments from me are automatically special.

    Anyway since this is still a pretty new development I wanted to announce that I am now a dad.  My son Zachary Thomas Williams was born June 25th, the same day that Michael Jackson died (circle of life). 

    Of course I dressed my son like a super hero
