Hey Keion...we hope you have a great 11th birthday. You are one cool kid. What would we do without you? Heber has been asking for you since we got to Idaho. He will be happy to see you again once we return to OH. Have a great day!
(I hope you don't mind Danette that I stole a picture from you blog!)

My poor dad just spent the afternoon raking up all the leaves on the side of the house (don't let Heber's rake trick you into thinking he did it) and Heber took a flying jump into the pile. He had so much fun and we loved watching him run back and forth that it was worth raking them all up again. When bathtime rolled around we were picking alot of leaves out of you know where!

I took Heber to a farm so he could pick his own pumpkins and apples.....he enjoyed being the farmer. He did eventually agree to the hayride so he could choose his prize jackolantern (he chose a pie pumpkin) and then he later decided it was fun to load up his bag with apples. I am happy that we had a chance to do this before we left OH a week is so cold right now in Bear Lake. We got a little snow the other day and will get more I am sure in the 2 weeks to come.

Maybe he is not just his father's child!

All I ever hear is "he looks so much like his daddy" which I have caught myself saying more than once, especially right after a haircut. He definately is Ben's little boy....I think this meter is just trying to flatter me since I am the one who laid in a hospital bed waiting forever to introduce the little guy to the world. I wish there was a way we could calcualte personality in this thing......then maybe Ben would believe me that Heber is a mirror image of him in more ways than one!

If I would have only known!

So, for 4 weeks now I have busted my behind writing a paper for my psychology class. I have never been more prepared with a writing assignment so early in the game. I have tweeked it and fine tuned it to death. I was just getting ready to submit it through our class portal and I noticed a statement that has been there the whole time but I guess I failed to actually internalize it:

"Due to this being your first writing assignment upon returning to school this paper will not be graded by an instructor. You will receive a full 25 points for turning stages of the assignment in on time to your writing consultant........" Blah Blah Blah!

I cannot believe that I put all that effort into a paper that is not going to be actually looked at except to check for formatting and proper documentation. What the heck!!!!! I better be able to use this at some point down the road!
