"I was thinking, "I can handle another shot of Jager, no problem!"
(actually Indiana was a planned baby, but I couldn't resist the stupid answer to the stupid question.)

I hope Dakota enjoys it.
It is such a nice weekend. Chris has four days off in a row! So, we are all just relaxing and making this weekend count as a "home vacation". A time to hang out together and rest, and just enjoy one another's company. Chris is getting a chance to really "bond" with Indiana in a way that the graveyard shift normally denies him. Indy is loving it.
Brother Duck called and said that the thanksgiving on the hill was all right, although everything was "healthy" to accommodate his grandfather and his cousin who is very ill. We love Cousin Macy and our prayers are with her during her illness. As we learn more about it I will share it here with you all, and ask that you keep her in your thoughts.

We are thinking of you, Jess. If you need us, we are here for you. A phone call away.

Chris ate Pecan Pie
Indiana ate Pumpkin Pie filling.
I love Thanksgiving.
Oh yeah, I promised a short "thankful" list didn't I!?! I kept procrastinating. Of course I am thankful for my children. I am thankful for my spouse, and my home. I am thankful for lots of stuff, but mostly right now, I am thankful for Pie.

So, today I was listening to Dean Martin on the brand new Bose system that we purchased less than ten days ago. It stopped playing, for no reason. The power just shut off on it. So, I thought maybe it is the fuse box... Wait! The rest of the stuff plugged in there, and on that fuse have power. Maybe it is the "plug in - outlet thingy" it is plugged in to... Nope, other stuff works when plugged into that outlet. So I thought maybe one of the wires came loose in the back... Nope all in and secure. It just wont turn on. It has no power to it. It has my Rat Pack Christmas CD in it!
So, now I think that I am just not lucky. Maybe Fisher Price doesn't suck, because I KNOW Bose doesn't suck however it appears that MY Bose does. So, maybe it isn't that Fisher Prices products are shoddy, maybe its just that I AM THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO GETS CRAPPY PRODUCTS FROM EVERYONE!!!

(This post is dated Sunday so it will be on top through-out the meet and greet weekend!
(edit: As some of you noticed... I am terrible at spelling other people's names! i have gone through and hopefully fixed the "double L" issue! thank you for pointing it out, i do try to be acurate!!)
I am also looking forward to driving around and looking at all the Christmas lights. I love the look of wonder that comes across his face when he sees our pitiful display. The thought of his reaction to the Grotto, or the Ridgewood Neighborhood display in Gladstone, or the city of Kaiser's display, it just delights me. Even the Pepsi plant in Corvallis's display and Albany's "story book land" should be wonderfully new for us this year, as we see things thru our young Indy's eyes.

They may just call this one the fog bowl. This is the 109TH meeting of Oregon State University and University of Oregon, affectionately called the Civil War. It is being held at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon.
The score at half time is: Ducks 28 Beavers 7.
UPDATE --- FINAL SCORE:
DUCKS 56 BEAVERS 14
on a side note: "Wa-Zoo" (WSU Cougars) won the "apple cup" leaving the Washington Huskies as the big losers this year! Go Cougs!

The movie was fantastic. That is all I have to say about that.

Time is going so fast.
You are growing so quickly.
One day you will be grown and gone.
I do not regret a moment of staying home with you.
I never thought I could love another child as I love Dakota.
I love both of my sons.
I am so proud of them.
It has been Seven Months to this date that Indiana joined this world.
It has been Thirteen Years, One month, and 25 days since Dakota joined this world.
My love for them continues to grow every day.
Being their mom rocks.

At any rate, I wandered into his room when I heard him chattering after his nap. I found a smiling, chattering, yakity, goofy boy standing up inside his crib. I know I should have some humility, I know that I should. BUT, look at that face!!

EDIT: 34-31 Oregon Ducks win it by a field goal kicked with just 3 seconds left on the clock! Time for Mama to gloat!

You scored as Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones is an archaeologist/adventurer with an unquenchable love for danger and excitement. He travels the globe in search of historical relics. He loves travel, excitement, and a good archaeological discovery. He hates Nazis and snakes, perhaps to the same degree. He always brings along his trusty whip and fedora. He's tough, cool, and dedicated. He relies on both brains and brawn to get him out of trouble and into it.
