The pen is mightier

AJ has started leaving notes for us all over the house. Here are a couple from this weekend:

Stuck to Brett's cup yesterday:
Dear Papa, I love you and you are fun to play with.

Taped onto my shirt this morning:
Dear mom, I don't want to go to church!
(Amen to that!)

Left on the counter yesterday afternoon,
Dear Mom, If you need me I will be in my room. Love AJ

Amen, Sister!!!

If this doesn't make you smile you have never
once met, seen, talked to, or been, a mother!

Good stuff.

My True Religion

For those of you who know me at all you may recall that I am a devout follower of The Colbert Report and The Daily Show. I nearly went crazy during the two weeks they were off the air over the holidays. But they are back and the Colbert Report had this little gem last night.

The 53rd installment of the 434 part series "Better Know a District" - Utah's 3rd - Jason Chaffetz. Stay tuned to the end when Stephen and Jason do the "Mormon leg wrestle." Good stuff:

One crazy night

We went to Austin's "First Night" again this year and we had a much different experience than last time. Last year we went early and the kids did a bunch of crafts and flew kites and we had cookies and hot chocolate, then the kids got tired and we headed home before dark...

This year we made it until dark and that is when things got crazy! There was the most psychedelic parade ever, all kinds of crazy light displays, and to top it all off they blew up a huge two story clock that they built just for the occasion. Watch at the very end of the video–there are huge chunks of burning clock falling down, and quarter sized embers raining from the sky. One landed in Brett's hair and caught it on fire!!! No Joke!

It was so crazy and so fun, and certainly a unique experience. Not to be missed. Happy New Year!
