The Pacific Northwest Never Ceases to Amaze Me

Look what I saw right in my own driveway...

About 2 seconds after I shut the camera off, a 5th deer sprinted up to join the others. Then, they just wandered off. It's so cool that the wildlife isn't too intimidated by the people. We see the deer all the time at night, but that's the first time we've seen them so close during the day.

Hope everyone has a great and happy Thanksgiving!

3-CUP WALL-E Widget

My favorite movie of this whole year was Wall-E. Storytelling at it's very finest, Wall-E is one of the best movies Pixar has ever produced. I was excited when it was released on DVD Tuesday, and I'm fully expecting a copy for Christmas. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page there is now a Wall-E widget that is fun and amusing. Give it a go.

May Joy and Innocence Prevail.

November and Thankfulness

November isn't only about Thanksgiving for me. November 26th happens to be Daniel's birthday, which every few years actually falls on Turkey Day. This year, his B-day is T-day eve, so we will be partying for a full and consecutive 48 hours. We each benefit from this. Daniel gets two "holidays", and I can go out for pizza on the 26th and then make the big dinner the 27th. Less stress that way. ;-) Life hasn't been entirely fair to Daniel and I, but we have been more blessed than I think any two people deserve. Let me just say that I am thankful for my Daniel. I made a movie about us 4 years ago when I first figured out how to use my movie maker program. Here it is, please enjoy.

BTW: if you're wondering how old Daniel will be this year, he will be the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything.

Google it if you have to.

Doin' The Family Proud

My brother Don is the coolest, as is evident by this year's Halloween costume.

He went as a member of the fictional metal band Limozeen. Then he sent this picture to the guys at who invented Limozeen. Every year fans from all over send in thier halloween pictures and Strong Bad makes fun of them. And guess who SB made fun of this year? MY BROTHER! Watch what Strong Bad had to say here:
I also have to give a shout out to my sister Emilee who took this picture and had it on her blog. Em is the greatest. Check out her blog at
p.s. I invite everyone to join me, in that from now on, we call my brother "Chuzz"

Ha-Ha-Halloween Night

This year Daniel and I went to our ward "Harvest Party". They have some kind of prejudice against the word "Halloween" or something. It was a fun night, we had chili and cornbread and were able to get the trunk-or-treat out of the way before it started to sprinkle. It didnt' really rain, which for Lincoln City is rare. The girls in my YW group came as Vampires: Valerie and Amanda Caesar Mr. and Mrs. Caesar

They also had a pumpkin carving contest. Daniel and I didn't have a lot of time to get a pumpkin done, so we went small. Before Carving Carved All Lit Up

He won the award for "Cutest Pumpkin"

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
