The Force is strong with this one.


Thanks to a $1 paper mask off Ebay and the magician's cape Brian's mom made him as a boy, Aidan is ready for Halloween '08...assuming this Star Wars phase last that long!

This week he's all about Planet Heroes, thanks to the Wallings. Check out the free DVD offer on their site. Thanks to the characters, Aidan can now name all the planets (even poor Pluto, the non-planet).

I had a post in my head all day yesterday. And it's gone now. But that's okay. What is that line of Blake? Thanks to Google, here it is:

He who bends himself a joy
Doth the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses joy as it flies
Lives in Eternity’s sunrise.
--- William Blake

Hopefully this site can be my attempt to kiss joy, as treacly as that sounds, as it flies.

Brian and I spent Friday in Grand Junction. I am in great debt to Pregnancy_portrait_in_mirrorAmy for watching my boys during several of these prenatal dr appointments.  And to Brian for taking time out from work to join me. I forgot to ask any of the questions I had for our doctor, but it is just nice to hear the baby's heartbeat. I've had requests to see the growing belly---or as Aidan and I refer to it, my watermelon. I still hope to get a shot with Brian this weekend, but here's one I took in our closet mirror this morning.

"Annie" was our Friday night movie, and the next day Sean carried around his toy dog calling it Sandy and being Annie:-) Sunday Brian had to work, but I drove the boys out to see his prescribed burn after church. They were already in awe just seeing him walk in the door most evenings last week with his face black from ashes and smelling of smoke. Luckily the wind was blowing so we didn't have to breathe smoke, and the boys loved seeing the flames, the trucks, and Bri's coworkers, whom they think are their buddies.

There's a funny story here about an evening snowfall, dispatch miscommunication, and our local fire department, but I'll leave that to Brian to tell...

This weekend we also learned that my sister Maria is having a BOY! Yay! So excited that these two cousins will have a pal...assuming they ever get to see each other! And I can just imagine Elizabeth's little girl, Maria Anne, bossing the two of them. My brother John had a baby boy in October, so my parents will have FOUR grandchildren born within 12 months of each other. Wild!

Okay, I'm worn out from all that exclamation mark use. I have ten minutes left of "Super Why" before Sean demands some interaction. We're off to the post office with small packages for Russia...something from my December to do list that never got done...
