Ok, for you men that are a little shy about "women" words I warn you to not read this post. If they don't bother you, read on! I've just been laughing this morning remembering how in high school, one of my good friends had a code word for tampons-they were called party favors. It was a good word, if you were in a public place, and needed to ask a friend for an emergency tampon, you would just ask her if she had any party favors. Now maybe people knew what we were talking about and maybe they didn't, but either way you felt a little less obvious and uncomfortable asking for a party favor. Well as of late my two youngest have discovered my stash of tampons in the bathroom cupboard and you know what? You would think they really were party favors. They have more fun opening them and popping those tampons up through the tube than just about anything I've seen them get there hands on. I don't love that they are wasting them, but it still cracks me up - other than I'm afraid there is going to be an untimely incident with one being opened and left in sight of front door company one day that I will miss!

Welcome new cousin baby Smith (we'll call him that 'cuz it's the only thing we can call him right now :) He made his appearance 4 days late (or maybe right on time-who knows what his schedule was) on October 13. He is a big boy weighing in at over 8 lbs and looks a lot like his daddy. He sure is a cutie and we're glad he made it here and that mom and baby are doing well. Congrats Quin and Natalie!!!

I just had to post these videos of my Genius child Kayson. They crack me up, but he definately is innovative. Sorry it is in two videos-it really isn't that long, Brylee just started pulling on the camera string at the end of the first video and so I had to stop and get her off to catch the second video. Kayson was pretty detrmined he was at this long enough for me to watch, then go find my camera, and then come and video tape the last of his efforts. Anyways, enjoy if you care to-I thought it was pretty funny.

Kade and my Dad discussing the finer points of the game "Braclets". You can see that Kade is sweating to death. He was the one guard trying to catch all the rest of us.
The runion was also a lot of fun. We haven't done an overnighter since I was a kid. This year my Aunt Judy offered the use of her cabin to all of us so that we could get together a little longer. It was great. I really enjoyed visiting with cousins, aunts, and uncles that I really don't get much of a chance to see. Thanks Judy for all of your hard work!! On the way to the reunion, we got a phone call. It was Gillian telling us she had just had her baby. It was great timing because my parents were going home that way and were able to see their newest grandchild. I don't have any pics of that little guy yet.
