Fall Pictures

Pumpkin Patchin' and Halloween! That's what we've been up to lately. Oh, and football games, although Jeromy has been taking family and friends, since the schedule is conflicting with what we already had on our calendar. More to come!

OSU Season Opener

And here's an oldie... from our very first EVER season opener:

Next up: USC. Despite their less-than-stellar luck at Reser Stadium (Fog Bowl 2004/Giant Killers 2006) we're mentally preparing to seriously have our fannies handed to us...

She is Gone
By Anonymous

You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she's gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Our Patriotic Catholic

So, you know you don't take your child to church often enough when, as the Priest walks down the nave for Ash Wednesday services, your child asks (in the loudest kid-voice possible) "is that the President?," and also, during the opening hymn, he puts his hand over his heart.

So, yeah. At least our Peace be with You nieghbors got a good chuckle out of it too.

On January 7, The Earth Cracked and Swallowed me Whole. It Was Loud.

So, yeah.

But life went on! Including, but not limited to:

Jeromy's last-minute trip to Green Bay, Wisconson for the Packers/Seahawks game.

Oh, blogger! The picture of the three boys was taken at Courtney's recent gym meet in Bend on January 19 (for the record... she placed first on the floor, balance beam, vault and all-round and got second on the uneven bars). The reason why I took that picture? Because the boy on the right? Was in the NICU with Cameron all those years ago! It was fun to catch up with his dad. Amazing how these little guys pulled through so well.

Next is Bailey, Gabriela and Sahalie at Gabriela's baby shower on January 27.

Finally, Bailey's eighth birthday party at Cascades All Stars Gym.

Here's hoping all of you are shoveling out of the snow and winter. Did the Groundhog see its shadow? I don't even know. We're in for a Big Melt in the coming days... looking foward to it!

Happy New Year!

Or, a Lesson in What Happens at a Party When Gabe Comes Dressed in a Skirt*:

Gabe paid each of the kids $10 (all in $1's, I might add) to dress up. Somehow, the boys (Corbin excluded) wound up in 1. Dresses or 2. Dresses and Make-up.

The lighting of the highly illegal fireworks.

Jeromy: New Years Eve, 11:41 p.m.

I should have taken a picture of all the booze. Then, I realized, I'm secretly glad I didn't.

*"Kilt, actually...."

(said the guy in the skirt)

Happy New Year, Everyone!
