Change Is Good

Posted in Uncategorized on October 31, 2008 by Emily

Well, I’ve decided to pick up and move officially over to blogger. I’ve debated for 7 month (if you look back) and I’m hoping I don’t regret it, but you can now check us out at Yikes, I hope this doesn’t make me crazy!

Before you turn away, I don’t like sharing my political views on my blog because it’s too much of a target. I will not tell you who to vote for or how to vote, I will listen to your views and I’ll keep mine or change mine depending on if you have a good argument (Not that I’m wishwashy, I just like to be informed and I’m not too bullheaded to change my opinion). My brother shared this with me, and I thought it was funny. It’s posted by a girl named Eden.


My brother Spencer’s friend is the individual telling this story that happened to him the other day.

In a local restaurant my server had on a “Obama 08” tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference–just imagine the coincidence. When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need–the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I’ve decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.
At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient needed the money more. I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

Sunday Cousins

Posted in Uncategorized on October 27, 2008 by Emily

Most Sundays we head up to Chris’ grandparents to visit. You never know who will show up, but this week we got quite the crowd. Morgan and Chelsea came up from BYU (go red)  with their friends Fatima and Whitney, Chris’ parents, Lani & Cameron, Suzy & Kelby, PLUS the Taylor crew came AND all our clan, so it was cousins galore.

The kids headed outside for night games of football and tag:

Then it was freezing so EVERYONE headed inside. Lexi made Whitney her new best friend. Poor Whitney was trampled on, pulled on, jumped on, and followed. She was such a good sport. (Whitney’s the blond at the bottom).

And here we have cousin Morgan who was VERY entertaining.

It’s great to have such a loving family.

Pumpkin Time

Posted in Uncategorized on October 25, 2008 by Emily

Today we started off with nothing other than…

A hockey game (no pictures). Tyler played his third game today and THEY WON!! 4-1 He got one of the goals. Tyler also took one for the team. He got knocked flat on the ice – let me tell you that was not fun to be sitting in the stands and not being able to help. Really he’s fine, just a sore knee, elbow and shin.

We FINALLY took our kids to pick their pumkins. And as you can see they also got to try out their Halloween costumes. Chris’ parents took them to their Trunk-or-Treat so they were very excited to dress up. Sounds like they had lots of fun and plenty of practice for Friday.


Brazilian Skydiving…

Posted in Uncategorized on October 24, 2008 by Emily

A blonde is watching the news with her husband when the newscaster says, “Six Brazilian men died in a skydiving accident today

The blonde starts crying to her husband, sobbing “That’s horrible.”

Confused, he says, “Yes dear, it is sad, but they were skydiving, and there is that risk involved.”

After a few minutes, the blonde, still sobbing, says, “How many is a Brazilian?”

Picture Tag

Posted in Uncategorized on October 22, 2008 by Emily

My friend Tiffany tagged me with this. I have to put in the 6th picture from my 6th picture file. Here it is.  What a terrible picture of Patch – this is what happens when you have a digital camera and you don’t erase the not-so-good ones. This taken on Chris’ 30th birthday this year. I now tag Emily N., Teresa and Natalie.
