Hannah Pappas

I’ve been away from the blog here way to long (just over a year according to the dates).

The biggest item of note in the last year is the birth of Hannah just about 4 months ago (wow, time flies).
Looking back, it’s crazy what the total impact has been and both Angie and I are still learning what that impact really is – and will be for the rest of our lives.

Hannah is asleep now in her crib, baby monitor on the desk in front of me as I type. The LED’s on the front of it are bouncing up and down to the heartbeat sound that’s playing in the room still. I’m really not sure who needs that sound more now – Hannah in her room or Angie and I in our room via the baby monitor. It’s beating while all of us sleep every night now.

Here’s some photos from the 1st week-

Car paid off!

So long car payment for my vehicle!

We got our tax return (both Federal and State) and used all of it to pay off the remaining amount owed to the bank on my car.

That’s a couple hundred each month we can use differently now at home, it’ll make maintain our budget easier as well. Add that monthly savings to a slightly higher amount saved each month due to refinancing the house and it starts to turn into big money quickly!
Just one more car to finish paying off before all we have left is the house!

All I Want For Christmas (Deluxe)

Thanks to Pandora over the Christmas season Angie and I found a new group, Straight No Chaser. It’s a male a cappella group that simply sounds great. Our personal favorite is the 12 Days of Christmas. Click the link below to head over to and you can hear samples.
