3. He served a mission in San Fernando, California
4. He had his appendix taken out when he was 10

Five of James' Quirks:
1. He cannot make a normal smile in pictures. At one point his roomate's mother seriously thought that James had a mental disability because of the faces he makes in pictures!
2. He doesn't like to drive- if you ever see us in the car together I'll be driving. (This works out well because I'm a control freak and I love to drive)
3. He is constantly cracking his knuckles, neck, back, etc.
4. He loves to make charts and graphs of his scores on video games. (A true accountant. NERD ALERT!!)
5. He obsessively checks to make sure his car is locked. He will lock the door, check it 3 times, walk half way across a parking lot and then turn around and go back to start it all over again. (I keep asking him, Who's going to steal an 18 year old car???? And if they break in what are they going to steal, the snow scraper???)
I tag:
1. Amanda
2. Corinne
3. Joanna
4. Dana
5. Lindsay

The Scarecrow Festival

Last Night we went to the Scarecrow Festival at Thanksgiving Point with my Mom and my sister's family. It was cold, but we had so much fun! They had lots of activities for the kids, but the best part was all of the inflatable slides and bounce houses. I have never seen JJ so excited about anything before- it was so funny! It was exhausting climbing up all of those things with 30 extra pounds to carry! (Sometimes it was downright precarious!) I guess that counts as my workout- at least for a couple days!

Fang Face

When I was a baby I was lovingly referred to as "Fang Face" due to a trait that I had and that McKenna has now inherited. My two front teeth were the last ones to come in and my Mom was worried that I maybe didn't have them at all!

I think that her little fangs are so adorable! I was hoping that they would stay this way at least until Halloween, but I can see her two front teeth coming in now. :( So I've been taking lots of pictures while I can.

And here's one of a naughty boy who was playing in the mud. I hosed him off as much as I could outside, but there was still a lot of dirt in the bottom of the bathtub after this one!
