Friday Randoms

1-  Nolan has a very funny way of saying "marshmallow".  We discovered this when my mom brought his a marshmallow gun when they had their grandma day a few weeks ago.  And then she found a way to MAKE marshmallow guns for all the kids. . .

I had to make a small video of his pronunciation, just in case he figures it out sometime soon.  It's tough to hear, so turn it up a bit, but it's pretty funny.


2- Still not feeling any better with the sickness. . .  thanks a lot little lime baby (Babycenter tells me how big my baby is every week in comparison to a food. . .  this week, it's the size of a lime)  I'm desperately hoping the need to throw up goes away very soon. . . 

3- Those of you that LOVE Halloween. . .  I appreciate that you feel that way, but I just don't get it.  Seriously.  Dressing up is not fun.  It's a pain.  You spend a lot of time and money on a holiday that is over in one night.

And beginning your decorating in September?  SERIOUSLY?!  It's not even a real holiday!

Too many years in the theatre?  Probably.  But you will never catch me dressing up for Halloween.  Much to Ben's chagrin, as he's a fan of group costumes. . .

I love fall.  LOVE fall.  Don't love Halloween.

Sorry.

4- Our friends Dallas & Helen have moved back to the big bad USA after several years in Australia.  (AZ, sadly, not UT, but we'll take what we can get)  And while I am certain Australia misses them, we are pretty darn pleased to have them back.  Ben & Dallas met on their mission in Seattle and were then roommates at BYU. . .  which is where I met Dallas. 

He married miss Helen several years later, and it's a little sad that even with the several months she spent living in Provo, I didn't REALLY get to know her until I started blog stalking her. . . 

Helen brought their sweet little 3 year old Isabel up to UT over last weekend, and we were lucky enough to meet up with them for a little Mexican food on their way out of town.  (unfortunately Dallas didn't join them, but he'll be back in January!)  And now we have one MORE reason to visit AZ!


Nolan and Isabel already like each other very much. . .

Jean is making guns and encouraging violence? Haha. Didn't see that coming! ;-)

I don't love Halloween either, but for some reason I'm excited to be a Bee along with Si this year. (my mom bought the costume when I was pregnant, so that helps). I'm using yellow duct tape on some black clothes. Should be simple. ;-)

Sorry you're still feeling craptacular.

I wondered what ever happened to Dallas! His little girl is darling!

I am glad you feel that way about Halloween. Now I don't feel so bad that I'm not so excited about it as everyone else.

I like the orange and black. Ok? No hatin'!

Could seriously do without the ghosts, blood, and gore, though.

You are my not-loving-Halloween sister! I, too, do not get it.
