Do you think my kid watches too much TV?

I have been trying to tell Spencer about this for a while. Every time the Thomas The Train theme song turns on, Owen does this little dance. Watching it just warms me up inside and I feel like the best mom in the world! On a side note, don't you remember being told that you would go blind if you sat too close to the TV? I think the damage may already be done.

Sad To See Her Go

In the spirit of Katie's most recent post, I am spreading the word this season to help others... okay to help myself! This blog entry is to let anyone who might be in the market know, we are finally selling the Montero. She's been a good car, but we are looking for a family car that won't cost so dang much to drive on long trips. Please see our KSL ad for details if your interested!!

"Show Mommy How The Little Piggies Eat! "

While eating his rice today Owen gave up on the chop sticks and went in the easiest way he knew how, face first.

Lars and The Real Girl

I am not going to pretend that I am any good at reviewing movies, but I would like to give my recommendation to go see Lars and The Real Girl. Spencer and I went to the matinée today and we really liked it. The thing we liked most about it was that it was really original. Initially I could not figure out why so many people liked this movie. I mean the whole concept is a guy who goes out with a sex doll, and believes she is real??? I was really surprised that a story like that could have heart and make you think, and more than that I was surprised that it was not dirty, when it easily could have gone that direction. 2 thumbs up for me!

A few months back TJ posted a blog entry with a video of Malibu from American Gladiators. Thanks to TJ for the inspiration for Owen's and our costumes this year. Just too bad more people couldn't see how awesome we all look in spandex!

Owen wouldn't hold still while I took a picture.

Cruisin' with babies ROCKS!

Here is a picture diary of our trip.....

Our 1st Stop was the beautiful Nanaimo

While in Nanaimo we got hot chocolate that was yucky.
While we were getting our drink Owen fell asleep like this!
I think he was hungry and tired at the same time.

Us at the beautiful port

By far our favorite part of Nanaimo.
At the grocery store we stumbled upon this and all had a laugh.

Our 2nd stop was Victoria.
There is much to see in Victoria. I think we all wouldn't mind spending more time there in the future. On our day there we went to this great park down town.

Owen loved being able to roam

I am not sure if it is the "altitude" or just that I am a chubby pregnant lady, but please excuse my heavy breathing in this clip!

One Minute with OJD

I don't know what I can say about this clip. My child is insane.
I asked the doc if I should be concerned about the head shaking thing
and he said I watch too much Oprah!

Owen Speaks Thunder

I am pretty sure Owen speaks a foreign language.
I am not sure which one though. Anyone who understands him, please let me know.
So far he speaks exclusively to thunder and Sergio(the dog), who both seem to understand him.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We went to SLC this last weekend for a few events.
While we were shooting a wedding we got this shot. Owen loves his cousins.
This is seriously the best picture we got out of probably 15 I took!
Yes, Grandpa Scott dressed Owen, if ya hadn't guessed!

"My intention was to make an original film, almost like a visual album, but with a realistic, modern love-story at its heart. We're in a world where a three-minute song is worth ten pages of dialogue; where the characters communicate more through the art of song than by talking or getting involved in traditional plot-points and dramatic situations." John Carney (Writer/Director)

I think this quote most accurately describes the film. I have been wanting to see it for months, but living in a not so huge city like St. Giggity we rarely get independent films. This last weekend in Salt Lake we were finally able to go see it. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for something beautiful and unique. Also it received a 97% on rotten pretty impressive. For a complete review visit:

I also highly recommend The Swell Season, the album made by the two lead actors during the filming of Once. If you like "Falling Slowly," and "When Your Minds Made Up" two of my favorite songs on the album you will love the movie.

Wild Weekend

We went to SLC to attend some MWSBF meetings and a couple of ball games.  On Thursday night we went up to Alta to take some family pictures of Ian, Katie, and Grace.  While up there we had close encounters with an Elk and a Deer!  Enjoy the pics
(note: Spencer is our wildlife photographer. )

Girls Camp. The Good, The Bad, & The Dirty

" I don't think we should ever try that again." thats what I said to Spencer this morning when I was still awake as the sun was rising on little thunder Campground in the beautiful Cedar Cedar mountains. We finally got back from girls camp this morning. I say that like we had been there all week, but we only drove up yesterday morning. So not even 24 hours and we had had our fix. I always thought I was a fan of camping, but that was before I went camping with Owen. Yesterday actually went pretty well. He ate a ton of dirt, and who knows what else, but for the most part we had a fun time. At the flag ceremony he did have a little spill face first into some gravel, he caused a pretty big scene but handled it okay. In the end we will catch up on our sleep and laugh at our little adventure, but for now I am still yawning.
