Happy Halloween!

Having a baby gives Halloween (and every other major holiday) a whole new meaning. I'm excited to see my daughter enjoy holidays the way I did as a child- the way I haven't been able to enjoy them for a long time.

I'm pretty excited to carve that pumpkin.

My dad was disappointed that we're not dressing her up as something scary. How could you possibly make a cute chubby baby scary?

Aven would like to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. Eat lots of candy on her behalf :)

Like Father like Daughter.

Aven's only 5 months old and she's already playing with computer hardware. You can see in her face that's she's trying to figure out how it works so she can put it back together and install Ubuntu on it. I swear that's what's happening and it's not that it's just a new shiny thing, that spins.

To the non computer geeks out there, that's a hard drive without the case that she's playing with.

Soothing the Savage Beast

A couple weekends ago Aven was resisting a nap with all her might and was extremely cranky, so we got in the car. We started driving and she was asleep by the time we got to the freeway on ramp. We drove up Lamb's Canyon and it was breathtaking. Rain at the bottom and by the time we reached the top of the canyon it was snowing and about 30 degrees outside. What a nice relaxing experience after a very stressful day.

Our First President was a Gangsta

I just love the little things my students add to my books in class. He looks so much more like a man of the people in that hat.

Ridiculous Inspiration

The last sentence of an e-mail from my principal was "Please remember- we cannot afford any buts." meaning "we can't afford to make excuses" and this was the first thing I thought of- there may be something wrong with me.

A Girl's Best Friend

Eye contact. Aven is very interested in Grace and is always entertained when she plays with my mom's dogs.

Eskimo kisses that turned into licks right on the mouth- yuck.

Just a super-cute picture of our beautiful girl.
