September 30th, 2008 · 6 Comments · a day in the life, bridget

A week ago, Sunday, we were sitting in sacrament meeting and Bridget was busy doodling on her “draw,” when out of the blue she held it up and said, “Look, I drew an ‘M’ like Old McDonald’s.” It was the first time she had written an “M” with the intent of making an “M” – […]

I recently heard that there are several restaurant chains (across the nation) that are giving away signature menu items for FREE (yes, usually smaller than normal portions, but still) to help grant some wishes made through the Make A Wish Foundation.

Smash ‘em mom!

September 23rd, 2008 · 2 Comments · bridget, random

Last Saturday we were driving and I stopped to let a couple of pedestrians pass. As I did, Bridget yelled from the backseat, “smash ‘em mom.” “What??,” I asked. “Smash ‘em. Just run ‘em over.” As you can imagine, I was just a tiny bit confused and concerned at her comment. The conversation continued… T: […]

So over the few years we’ve been married we’ve managed to collect all sorts of parts and gadgets and miscellaneous computer related […]

Pilobolus

September 13th, 2008 · 5 Comments · random

My dad sent me a video of a dance theater group called Pilobolus the other day. I didn’t know anything about them before watching the video, but it was AWESOME! I still don’t know much about them, but I guess they are a dance theater group based in Connecticut. Apparently they’ve been around for about […]

Imaginary Friends

September 9th, 2008 · 2 Comments · bridget

Some of you may remember a post we did back in January about Bridget’s imaginary friend, Fuf-uff. Since January, another ‘friend’ has entered the picture. His/Her name is Di-di (pronounced Die-Die). Fuf-uff and Di-di typically come out to play more when Dave or I are unavailable to play with Bridget. They’ve sat at the table […]
