Elder Holland Quote

One of my favorite quotes by an apostle is the following by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland (or John Bytheway - wikipedia wasn't sure):

The future of this world has long been declared; the final outcome between good and evil is already known. There is absolutely no question as to who wins because the victory has already been posted on the scoreboard. The only really strange thing in all of this is that we are still down here on the field trying to decide which team's jersey we want to wear!

Seriously's time for Team Jacob to jump ship.

My Thursday Observation

I tried to text the word "tofu" to my mom today. My cell phone didn't allow it. It allowed "unev", "unfu", "unet" and "undu", but not tofu.

I figure since it's not a word, it's probably not a food either.

There comes a time every few months where I realize that something is missing. Here's the conversation I had with myself a week or so ago...because yes, I do talk to myself fairly frequently.

Darn. I don't think I've seen Austin's sippy cup in a little while. I bet it's in that cedar chest. No, I don't think it is...the kids had their blocks in there last time they were playing with it. Crap. I bet it's in the car...full of nasty spoiled milk.

Guess what? It totally was. in my car. for like three of four days. Disgusting.

Now it's kind of funny because earlier that day I had had a conversation with Oprah...because yes, most of the time when I'm talking to myself I pretend like I'm being interviewed by don't? That's weird.

Oprah: If you want your life to be more rewarding, you have to change the way you think. Me: Should I start with my blog? I keep pissing and moaning about the weather. Hmmm...

So guess what? Today I'm going to take Oprah's advice and I'm going to shout joyous praises about the weather! So because the temperature is lower than that of our fridge (and most likely our freezer, too) that milk wasn't gross at all! And because I'll probably leave a sippy cup in the car 122 more times until Spring, I'm especially grateful for the cold.

So thanks Oprah. Thanks for making me see the brighter side of things.

Happy Halloween!

We took the easy way out when it came to carving Ashlyn's pumpkin. Here's what she was saying while posing for the picture, "This is what I looked like when I was a pumpkin."

Classic Austin face (both Austin and the pumpkin). Rusty even picked out a pumpkin that looks like it has a boogery face.

Ashlyn's Tinkerbell costume. Homemade even!

And when I say homemade, I mean that I took last year's costume and spray painted it green.

Here's my little Tinkerbell and Peter Pan pre-Trick or Treating. Austin's costume was also homemade. It's amazing how much skill I can muster when faced with buying a $30 costume. Total spent? $7.98 on both.

Rusty went as Book Face and I was Sue Sylvester. Yes, we do watch too much TV.

Sorry kids that we ate all your candy last night once you fell asleep!
