Kenneth turned 8 on Nov 14th and you know what that means. He was Baptised and became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was so proud that he made that decision. Also, we blessed our baby girl Mara. She is wearing the same blessing outfit my mom made for me. Thanks to Tara and her boys for coming to Kenneth's party. And thanks to all the Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who made the trek to Austin for a few short days. It was so wonderful to have you here. We love you very much, and we'll see you soon!

Would you take him back?

Does anybody know what Provisional voting is? I do! It's an excruciating way to vote inflicted upon those whose county screwed up their registration! I will not inflict the details of the process on the readers, but I will say that after checking all 5 databases they could only find my canceled registration from Houston, proving that I sent it in, but no one completed it. So After filling out 3 forms and giving them all my ID numbers, making sure I touched every document "for verification", and making me seal the envelope myself, they got all my info, fingerprints, and even my DNA! I was then allowed to vote but I have to wait 2 weeks to see if they will count it. If I get arrested for a government crime, everyone will know I was framed!
Dead people can vote easier than that!

The boys had three different events to go to so there was a parade of costumes. Evan was the only one who wore his Bumblebee Transformer costume for everything.
For the school Fall Fest, Kenneth was Spiderman and Sam was Bumblebee too.
For the Halloween Bash at UT Kenneth was Superman. Sam stayed Bumblebee.
But for Halloween Trick-or-treating, Sam turned into Batman, Kenneth became a Vampire, Evan was good ol' bumblebee and Mara became a little Ladybug.
For pumpkin carving, we let the boys clean out the goop and draw a face that Brent and I cut out. Brent did Mara's little pie pumpkin. See the resemblance?
They got a fair share of candy but it will be heavily taxed by their dad.
