Happy Day of Turkeys!

Today I am very thankful for the plump little turkey who sacrificially gave his life for the benefit of my caloric intake. He was a brave and delicious soul.

These pictures are from last month when Dan and Carmen came down for a visit and we all got to go out for sushi. I know I talk about Maddox's adventurous eating habits all the time, but I just can't believe the things that kid will eat. He sat there that night looking around the restaurant, holding a large chunk of raw salmon and biting into it like it was an apple.

Surfin' Lombard

Last weekend, Jeff and Vince took a road trip up to the San Francisco Bay area to go to the Cal / Oregon football game. Vince had never been to San Francisco, so they made some quick stops to see the sights.

Jeff got to see Aiden, an old training client, who now attends Cal.
Car surfing down Lombard Street. I'm sure there's some sort of clever caption for these photos, but the best I can tell you is that it's just the type of thing that Jeff and Vince do.

Buzz, Take 2

Considering Thanksgiving is two weeks from today, I guess it's about time I posted the rest of our Halloween pictures. I'm nothing if not efficient.

Maddox was Buzz Lightyear. Again. Becky called me from the Goodwill store to tell me that they had a Buzz costume and a Woody costume for $10 each. So, it was time to ask the Man. The conversation went something like this:

Mommy: "Mad, do you want to be Buzz for Halloween? Or do you want to be WOODY?! You like Sheriff Woody!!"

Maddox: "I want to be Buzz."

Mommy: "But you were Buzz last year. Don't you want to be Woody? He wears a cool hat and has a holster! You should be WOODY! There's a snake in my boot!"

Maddox: "I want to be Buzz."

Now, I'm not one to be a buzzkill (you should know that I'm proud of myself for that pun), so I got him the costume. It may be a cheap, used costume from Goodwill, but at least it's not hand-me-down pajamas this year!

Next year we'll plan on being something else. Maybe.

Happy Halloween

Here's a picture from part one of the Halloween festivities. On Friday night, we got all dressed up and went to a costume party with friends....
From left to right: Connor Doucette, William Gash, Leila Young, Maddox, Carson Leslie, and Jaxon Young.

More pictures from Halloween night to follow...if I ever find my camera. Oops.
