"The Answered Prayer" BYU vs. Utah 2006

Football highlights. John Beck completed a pass to Johnny Harline with no time left in this heated rivalry. Harline caught the pass in a kneeling position as if he were praying, thus "The Answered Prayer."

Lots of fun

I changed the brakes on the Jeep. We plan on selling it next year. We hope to keep using the passat/Jeep combo as long as possible before having to step up to a minivan/larger SUV for Risa. When that happens I'll get the Passat back!
I finally got my birthday present. I ordered another 19" monitor. This one is widescreen and has a digital connection so it is a little better. I have been wanting to do this for a loooong time. My video editing program was designed to be used with two or three monitors so I can use it as designed now. I am very excited about this. There are tons of other times where two monitors are very nice to have.

Here is Beckham after eating a halloween cookie with black icing :( Very messy.

Something cute that Bex has been doing lately is using this toy ducky as a glass when he gets in the tub. The first thing he does every time is hold the head, full up the back and take a couple drinks. Luckily he doesn't try to do it after the soap gets in the water.

Tre just got a new set of construction paper. He used it to make haunted house and had lots of fun doing his favorite thing...being creative.

No more monkeys...

Beckham has started to crawl out of his crib...and bump his head. He climbed out for the first time a couple of days ago. We heard a large bang and then he came out of his room crying, but not hard like he was hurt, just sad. This morning at 5:50 he came walking into our bedroom and wasn't even crying. We thought it was Tre at first. What a weird thing to wake up to. It was so unusual I wasn't sure if I was awake or dreaming yet. I guess it is time to move him to a big kid's bed. We were planning on doing that in the next couple of months anyway to get him into it before the new baby arrives. We plan on having the new baby sleep in a bassinet in our room for a couple months.

UPDATE: Well he got out of bed two times tonight. We watched him the second time through a cracked door. Rather than being a monkey to get out he just leans over the edge and falls to his head! We wish we could record it but our camcorder just broke a couple of days ago and is in the shop :(

Tre...who says you have to have girls to have drama?

You have probably heard about all the flooding here in Seattle. We live on a hill so we are pretty safe unless Mt. Rainier erupts because that is only 50 miles from our house! Anyway, the city of Snoqualmie (where I am going to put my new practice) flooded and they canceled the meeting where they were going to approve exterior design for my office building :( Just another delay amongst the many that are making the opening of my office get pushed back farther and farther. I can't wait to have my own, but at least the job I have now is a good one.

Here are some pix from Halloween. Trevor and Beckham were Batman and Robin. Tre finally got tired of the man in red and blue and went all black this year.

Beckham loves having a cape on. He has always loved bringing towels to us so that we can wrap it around his neck. Then he runs around like he has a cape on and is a super hero. I guess he never watched the incredibles.

He was very independent when we went trick-or-treating. We didn't see Trevor because all the "big kids" ran around the neighborhood. I kept back with Beckham who didn't want me to carry him very much, he wanted to go up and back to each house on his own.

The boys think they are the best duo ever.
