California Fires

Here is a picture of the brush fire that started on Friday morning. Our house is down this burning hill and across the street, so they evacuated us & turned off our water on Friday in the late morning. We weren't really in any danger, the fire wasn't super close, but the air was filled with smoke and you could actually see the flames of the fire as it spread down the hill. It was pretty crazy. Luckily, we were able to get back into our house by that evening.

Funny Story

Ok, so I don't have any pictures for this story b/c Tim wouldn't let me take any. But here's the story: Tim was bent over on the ground picking up Brecken's dinner, which, as usual, was more on the floor than in his tummy. Meanwhile, Brecken grabbed the nearly empty milk jug out of the recycling bin, walked over to his daddy, and poured the last few drops of stale milk down Tim's plumber's crack.

Happy Birthday, Tim!

On Monday, we celebrated Tim's birthday (actually, we celebrated it all weekend). Tim & I got really wild & crazy and went to a Death Cab for Cutie concert. It was a good concert and we haven't been to a concert in forever, so that made us feel cool. Unfortunately, we didn't feel quite as cool when we were both tired by 10:30 p.m.

Barack the Vote!

Yeah!!! I am so excited about the election. Now, I realize that many of my dearest family & friends (including my own little Red husband) are Republicans and are probably feeling sad right now, so this is not meant to rub it in. I am just thrilled that for the first time in my relatively short voting life, the person that I voted for won! Yeah! And to all my fellow Obama supporters: WE DID IT!

Happy Halloween!

Here's our cute little dragon posing for his Halloween picture. He's not really into modeling...

Grandpa Jones helped us take Brecken trick-or-treating. He was a little nervous and he kept wanting to go inside people's houses. He was uncertain as to why people looked so weird, but he liked picking out candy for his basket.

Here's my adorable little dragon helping "clean up" before the festivities. We went to Matt & Gilen's for pizza and then all the kids went out together. They all looked so cute! Brecken was stinking adorable.
We also had fun at the ward Trunk or Treat on Tues. Brecken was super tired, though, so he was very quiet the whole time. He even layed down on the gym floor during the Parade of Costumes, so we cut it short and went home.
