Updates from the Little Guy

So I decided it was time to finally download the pictures from my small camera because it hasn't been done in forever, and thought I'd give a little post about what I found on there. Disclaimer: if you don't believe in eating chicken, don't read any further...

This is our cat Potato. We got him because we were having a little mouse problem in the house. This is the first mouse he's caught in about nine months. Todd was so proud. 

This was our garden when we planted it. We managed to kill everything but the mutant tomatoes

Next February a big group of our friends will be going on a cruise. My bestie, Ape, and I thought it would be a good idea to decorate our planning party to get everyone excited. I think we were the only ones that got excited about the decorations. Ha ha

Healthy homemade pancakes for Sunday breakfast, nothing better.  

It seems like every time we go to a movie we get a picture in front of this movie poster, or something similar. I still haven't seen this movie.

The 4th of July parade in West Jordan. 

Todd drinking a whole bottle of Pepsi from this giant bowl. 

This is how Potato sleeps every night- right on top of my head

Todd's first day of school picture!

Todd, Kelli, and I thought it would be fun to drive to Wellesville and go to the 'Highland Games' Scottish Festival being held there. It was rainy, and about 20 people came, but it was so much fun, and the kettle corn was delicious! Plus it was so much fun to get to hang out with Kelli!

We got to sit behind this cute man at the festival

Notice Todd's bag of popcorn is almost gone. So good. 

And last but not least! We got to go to the Utah game last night (my first one of the season) with Kelli and Kaylee. It was so much fun to hang out with them and watch the game.

The convict story...revisited

Once upon a time my mom used to live in the very same house I do now. She grew up in this house and has shared a lot of stories from her childhood about it. Most of them are pretty spooky, which is why when we were in high school we'd love to bring our friends around and have her scare them by going on 'the tour'. Very dramatic, I know. Well, one such story is about the time an escaped convict hid on the property after running away from the prison (we had quite a bit of land with A LOT of prime hiding places: chinchilla buildings, barns, stables, groves of trees, you name it). Well on this occasion my mom had to leave the house for the evening, and as a precaution my grandpa told her that when she came back to wait in the car and honk the horn until he came out to walk her into the house. Well she said that she and her ride sat and honked for a while until they both got the most creepy feeling that they were being watched... It is at this point in the story that my mom leads a group of scared high school students to the log pile next to the driveway and scares us all half to death by making us believe someone is hiding back there ready to get us. Why do I share this story? Well I just received a call from my aunt who is also my next door neighbor informing me that there has been a man breaking into cars in the neighborhood adjacent to our property, and that he has just made a run for it through our fields! And yep, I'm at the house all by myself looking out all the windows for the reincarnated convict of my mom's past. In 5 minutes I have to make a break for my car so I can get to work on time- most definitely with my phone dialed for 911. Gotta love living on a creepy old farm, right?

I love you Italy

The film. I love it so much. Why do I ever shoot digital?
