David's 15 Seconds

I don't know why this happens, but when BYU and national TV come together, my brother-in-law, David is usually there to make spotlight history. And here he is once again... (in the white hat)

That's great Big Guy...uh...what is it?

Today Big Guy brought home 'the big project' he's been working on for weeks at school. He was pretty excited - it has feathers, blocks, a dead leaf, an acorn. I asked him what it was and so far I've received numerous answers -

"It's a smokestack mom"

"A turkey. See the feathers"

"No mom, it's for my collection. That's a good leaf."

"It's for the table"

The mysterious object in question

The other piece of artwork he brought home was his big Thanksgiving poster to show what he's thankful for. Mom? Dad? Sweetie? Pretty Girl? Family? Friends?

no. jellyfish.

Monkeys, Firemen and We Miss the Nelsons!!

Up until August, J was all about pirates. And then for some unknown reason, he suddenly shifted gears to a fireman. Sure we now live 6 houses down from the local volunteer firestation, complete with 4 big trucks, but what does that have to do with anything???

A still doesn't care, so in the name of economy we dressed him up in his brother's monkey outfit from last year. Still very cute - loved the ears.

Also spent several lovely mornings and afternoons at local pumpkin patch farms. We are having a beautiful October month! (minus the flood - see previous blog entries)

This is our first Halloween we can remember where Greg and I didn't go to the Nelson's annual Halloween party back home (where we all leave our kids with sitters). So unfortunately, Greg and I were not motivated to dress up this year. Although here's some classic pictures from last Halloween - good times, good times....(we REALLY miss those times)

And finally...we can never forget my favorite Halloween picture from years ago with Greg and the husbands of our Super Friends group. Sorry, I'm not at liberty to reveal the names of the guys pictured below.
