It's my Dad's 59th birthday today. So, guess what he's doing, taking us all out to dinner. Such a nice dad he is. We should be taking him out to dinner. The guy may be 59 but he could run circles around me. At 59 his hair has turned gray, he doesn't use the iPod I gave him and he falls asleep at 8:30, but you can bet at 79 he will still have a full head of hair, will be on his way to mastering his iPod, and will still be taking us out to dinner. Happy Birthday old man! Love you.

A million points of light

Saturday morning we headed up to the LA Temple to help hang Christmas lights with what seemed like at least a hundred volunteers from our church. I can't imagine how long it would take or how much it would cost if the church had to hire professionals to do this. There are hundreds of trees, shrubs, bushes, etc, so there was plenty of work to go around. We are excited to go back and take more pictures when the lights are officially turned on at the end of November.

I looked out the window and what did I see?

This huge spider knitting it's web between two lemon trees in our yard. I stood there and watched it make a round or two around it's huge web. That sucker is fast.

Diane's beautiful plumeria plant. So gorgeous.

What was he dreaming about?

The first thing Cohen said after waking up from his nap today....

"Mom, I need some chocolate."

Latest purchase

For those of you out there that have come to the realization that owning an iPhone is not only a necessity, but utterly life-changing, you might think about buying one of these guys....especially if you are among the dual-iPhone-user-household like I am. Merry early Christmas.

E: Mom, why are there so many cars (mdx) just like our car? Look there is a tan one, and a silver one, and the other day I saw a black one.
J: I guess it's just a popular car.
E: Does everybody have a DVD player in their car like we do?
J: No not everybody, a few I'm sure.
E: You got this car because it had a DVD player in it to distract us, huh?
