The carved pumpkins

We made it over the the westside to carve pumpkins for Halloween at Laurel and Ryan's apartment. I miss our friends on the other side of town. Lisa and Laurel and both prego and I am so excited for them.

I dug up this picture from Halloween '05.

Megan's Shower

Delicious almond punch

Ruby, Robin, and Kindsay

Megan is getting married and we are all so excited. My mom's friends threw a beautiful bridal shower for her. It was so fun to have aunts, cousins, high school friends, family friends, and everyone else all together. It's also nice that Evan's family lives so close as well. Here are some more pictures.

Happy Halloween!

My parents’ neighbors made these “gravestones” for my sisters. They know my sisters all too well.

Adorable Nieces

Alyse, Annie, Madelyn

Alyse and Madelyn

How cute are our little nieces! They were so much fun to hang out with when they came out to CA in June . . . and they finally started to warm up to Michael. = )

Madelyn is the youngest one and her faces in the pictures are hilarious. We went and saw Up with them and she would just start laughing hysterically at random parts. The people in front of us turned around because she was so loud.

My family loved hanging out with Leah’s girls at our wedding. It made my dad all sentimental because he said it reminded him of when we were all little. There is definitely a funny dynamic to all girl families.

I hope some day we get to live closer to them.

Since USC dental school ≠ parties I figured I might have to branch out to new material. Also, I've received complaints that my old stuff was "boring."

My conversation with Michael in the middle of the night after waking up. (I woke up because he was hovering.)

Me: "Honey, what are you doing?"
Michael: "Just looking at you."
Me: "Why don't you lie back down?"
Michael: "You are being so ridiculous" (One of Michael's favorite words right now) "You are the one who got stuff all over the bed."
Me: "Really? What stuff?" (I'm starting to laugh)
Michael: "PUTTY"
Me: "Putty? What kind of putty? What does it look like?"
Michael: "Putty pasta sauce."

I start laughing really hard and then Michael gets annoyed at first and then gets quiet when he realizes what is happening. For a minute I almost think he is pulling my leg . . . but he's not. That's just Michael when he sleeps.
