Aren't Even Things

Here's a pretty picture of a pretty girl. I love all my nieces and nephews, they are a great asset to life. What would we do without family? I was talking to a friend's parents tonight about how life is centered around family. Just think how boring life would be without family and friends. I guess what they say is true: the best things in life aren't even things. Not just the best things, but relationships are the only real things that matter, right?

In the Eyes

Here's a picture from the Summer. I know that I haven't really posted anything in the last couple months, and the reason for this sting of posts is because I actually wrote them all in a night and just had the blog put one out a day. Pretty clever, eh? I thought so.

There you have it. Spee and his eyes that you can almost see the world in. Eyes are pretty interesting. I was out running today and I ran past a cat that was sitting on a car. It gave me the look like, "I dare you to come run by me!" Cats are so friendly, have you noticed that? As I ran by it just stared at me in the eyes. It wasn't looking at my moving legs or arms, but right in my eyes. Dogs and many other animals will do the same thing. I'm not sure about fish, though, it's hard to tell what they are looking at sometimes. Following the trend, babies will look right in your eyes, unless you're distracting them with something. Interesting, right? What are they looking at, why would they go for the eyes and not the nose or hair? I've often wondered that when I was on campus and I would walk right by a baby with his parent and the little tike will look right in my eyes. Adults will look in each other's eyes to see a deeper meaning to whatever was being said. Is the person lying? Sincere? Sarcastic? I don't know, just think about it.

Dr. Bruce

Here is a couple of pictures of Bruce after and before his accident. For those that don't know, he was knocked off a full truck of hay by a low hanging branch while traveling to the barn to unload it. It was a terrifying day, and we're lucky that he only received the injuries that he did. I still shudder when I see the big black garbage cans lined up on Island Road on Sunday nights/Monday mornings. That is what stopped his roll and the sound that I can still hear in my mind from on top of the stack.

So here is the before picture just days before the accident. What a good looking fellow. He's been a great uncle my whole life. Not only that, but a good role model, a person full of character, and a great friend. Some of my favorite summer memories consist of working with Bruce.

Maple Leaf

Last Sunday, I went up by Snow Basin with Nate's family to try and find some leaves. We found a couple--as you can see here. You know, you have to hand it to Canada. Their flag wouldn't have the same effect if they used an oak leaf or maybe a cottonwood. Something about the maple leaf says majestic. Oh Canada!

Okay, okay, you can use it as your wallpaper on your work computer, but only because you asked nicely.

Here's come pictures of Finn. He's come a long way over the past few months. It's good to have little Finn back. I bet you can guess what he wants for Christmas. Kristy thought it was so darn cute that both of his front teeth are out that she wanted some pictures. I think my favorite is the T-Rex Finn. Speaking of extinct dinosaurs, did you hear that the Triceratops may not have existed?? I don't know what they are doing to us, first Pluto, now the Triceratops!
