Lots of pics from September, click under family at the left.
Had a great 4th of July. Just hanging in the neighborhood with the neighbors. Cooking out for lunch, playing, napping, then to the pool for some fun. Finally, another cookout dinner, and mega fireworks. Hailey stayed up till 9:30 or so to watch a few, then got tired and went to bed. Nathan stayed up past 11 to watch the whole thing...and loved it. Click July08 to the left under family.
Added the 9th progress installment in the VeeDub project. Also, started getting caught up on Family uploads. Made February08 and started March08.
Well, I've done a little updating that wasn't blogged...mostly because it was related to my Volkswagen project. But alas, I'm starting to get Hailey's pictures up. Have a peak.
Updated some funny Nathan sayings.
Had a great time in Alabama for Thanksgiving. The whole Newton gang gathered for the event plus some. I think there were about 44 of us staying with Uncle Bill and Aunt Sarah. Head to Nathan's Pics - and click on Thanksgiving-06
HALLOWEEN - Nathan loves candy in a major way.
Took the family to Portrait Innovations for a studio photoshoot. Good stuff. Head to Nate's site and click on Portrait Innovations.
Laura had a girls weekend in Atlanta, so Nathan and I did the bachelor thing this weekend. Went to the grand opening of Herdklotz park in Greenville. Very nice playground. Head to Nathan's pics and select Sept-06
Well, we had a great vacation with the Smittys and the Sextons at Blue Mountain Beach Florida. I posted the link on Nathan's area (Beach 06). Have a gander.
I have a LOT of stuff to update. Overwhelmed again. But for fun, I put up some pictures from a photoshoot my neighbor and I did with his E46 M3 and the EVO. Head to my side for the pics.
Started a "Nathan Sayings" section on his site. Laura has written down a lot of stuff that he has said. Some pretty funny stuff. We'll be updating this one regularly.
Got my Canon Speedlight 430EX today. Works incredible with the 20D. So I renewed my photography bug. I started a macro section since this is one of my favorite aspects of photography. I haven't done much, but it will grow.
Nathan's Easter weekend photos are up...
Nathan got a nice 12" bicycle for Christmas. He loved it at first, but didn't know how to pedal...since then, he's let it sit while he Fred Flintstone's his big wheel. I came home from work last week, and the little booger was pedaling like a champ on his bike. He loves it now - constantly saying, "I want to ride de bike." Here's some of his ride from yesterday. Head to his video section and check him out.
Ok, so I've been lame. But I just got turned off with the stack of un-scanned photos, the cost of film and developing, and the time to photoshop each one. So finally, we decided to get smart. Bought a Canon 20D digital SLR which is great. Took it out for a whirl today with Nathan, Laura, Jen, and Emma (at Southside Park). Head to Nathan's page for a look.
(I'm BACK BABY!)
We took Nathan to see Santa and ride the park choo-choo train. We told Nathan he'd have to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas...well, I guess he understood - cause he wasn't shy about telling Santa that he wanted a Tractor. See it in his video page.
Added a Photoshop section to my area. I've been having fun photoshopping cars in contests...stop by and have a look.
Added an audio section to Nathan's area. He and Laura started singing ABCs before bedtime...and I got it on film (and transferred it to MP3).
Skipping ahead a few months...August and October. August contains a ton of photos from our beach vacation. October has Nate visiting the grandparents and Nathan's trip to the airport. He loves going, and Boppie loves taking him. Head to Nathan's Pictures page.
Might get around to adding some *new* pics this weekend. Still have hours of video to produce...but ran across one that I made in March and forgot to upload it. Head over to Nathan's video site and check out Boogie Time! (This one's for you Matt).
Still so far behind, but I'm working on it tonight - in the meantime, I bought a new(er) car. 2003 Mitsubishi Evolution VIII with Dave Buschur stage III kit. 400+ crank HP, AWD lovelyness. Head over to my side for photos.
Ok. I spoke too soon, I've got Nathan's December pics up and steaming forward. Ok, I lied. I've updated all the way through May of 2005...WOOT!
Shew - how far behind I am. Last week, I scanned over 100 photos. Then each one needs a touch up here, some cropping there in photoshop. Arrrg...will this ever get up-to-date? The answer is yes. Starting now. I've completed November pics for Nathan...December is soon to follow...as well as some videos. So head on over to Nate's page.
We had an "adults" vacation this past weekend with the Michenfelders and Dombrowskis. Headed to Orlando for our pal Javier's wedding. There will be pictures scanned when I get time - but I HAD to edit / upload a video of Jeffie...eating his banana. Head to my side - videos for the full story.
Well we're back - finally settled into Greenville. LOADS of updates to do - hard to find the time. I updated my PC with some new stuff - head to my side, misc.,CM Stacker build...
We've been really busy getting ready to move to Greenville, so updatign the site has taken a break. But we had some really significant events yesterday. Nathan had his first haircut and he also met a very important person for the first time. Head over to his video page to check it out.

Okay - I've been really lazy this month. I still have a few September photos to scan and add. But I needed to at least get the October pictures that are already on the PC out on the site. Nathan has a new Picture of the Month (August) - I still need to do September. See what I mean. But the big news is Nathan's teeth are finally popping through and he has taken his first steps. More to come as I un-lazy myself.
Feeling like we have been neglecting the cats, we pulled out the old laser pointer for Boyd and Abby. Boyd hadn't forgot about this jewel. And Nathan had the best time watching and playing. Head over to Nathan's video page for the clip.
Downloaded about 6 Gigs of Nathan videos tonight onto the PC. Did one quick edit. Check out Nathan blabbering on his video page. We have 2 or 3 more projects from those videos to do.

LITTLE CHARLIE IS BORN. Dan and Ann have a little boy named Charles Michael Sexton - born August 11th, 2004. I'm sure Nathan and Charlie will be as close as Dan and I are. In HONOR of Charlie's birth, I made a little flash loop. Check out "ICY HOT SEXTON" in the New Section at the right!
FINALLY - got the new PC stable, smooth, and FAST. Upgraded to an Athlon 64 3800+ CPU, ASUS A8V Deluxe motherboard with WiFi, and 1 Gig of Corsair memory. Had to backup all my data and format the hard drive. Pictures are on my MISC site.
Busy day at the PC. Scanned in some new photos, updated "Picture of the Month", and added a complete new area called "Lost and Found" (old pictures of Nathan that - with the advancements in technology, are now viewable across the World Wide Web - LOL).
Started up the July photos - mostly because a few of the pics were "needed" by a certain grandparent...hehe. Added the "Airplane" video to Nate's page.

Finally got around to scan all of Nathan's June pictures. Head over to his page and check it out.

Nathan got a new bathtub chair. Since he started sitting up,

could sit and play. Long video - head to his video page to
check it out.
Made a great video of Nathan bouncing in his little bouncing
chair - all to Tigger's movie "Whoop-de-Dooper Bounce" song. Head on over to his video page to check it out.

Just got some photos back from the lab. Nathan has updated March 2004 pictures on his page.
Ok, I've made about 5 different front pages for this site, but I have never uploaded any of them. I never liked the way they looked. This one seems more in tune of what I was looking for, so hopefully, I will upload it once I finish all the editing.
www.steven-laura.net is born. Well, purchased anyway. Looking forward to documenting our lives here.
