My local newspaper basically did my shopping for me when it recently ran this advertisement for . . . are you ready? . . . "A Thoughtful Gift--Give someone you love the added comfort of an extra tall toilet with the beauty of fine European design." SOLD! Say no more! This item just screams "thoughtful gift," does it not? I especially like the "elongated seat design" feature. Nice. Ooo and looky! It comes with a beautiful red bow perched right on top so your gift wrapping chore is done. What more could anyone ask for? You give this little beauty away, and you and your gift will be the talk of the family for years, guar-an-teed!

Can I just say for the record that I must be the luckiest, most blessed, and certainly the most grateful mom in the whole universe! It is a PRIVILEGE to be the mom of Christian--to be able to learn from his steady and mature example, to watch him grow in his faith and abilities, to see his compassion and care for others, to observe his natural leadership in action, to have the unbelievable joy of being with him and his happy personality every day. It is almost too much to take in and certainly more than I deserve, but I'll take it, for sure. I thank my Heavenly Father every day for my sweet Christian whom I absolutely adore with all of my heart.

We both looked back at my mom and at the same time said something really intelligent like, "huh?" She grinned back at us and said, "Well, Christian, you aren't fully dressed without a girl on each arm!" She is a master of the bon mot, my mom!
Epilogue: What makes this hilarious is that we had met my mom for a BYU basketball game the night prior and yes, you guessed it--Christian had a girl on each arm!

The girl in the background is totally trying to memorize Mom's technique
Christian was the big bowling Kahuna, outscoring us by almost double--and he didn't even need the bumpers this week!
Look at the twinkle in Jordan's eyes--he can't wait for baby Kimball to pop out and join the Professional Bowling Tour for 2009Heehee. It looks like Ashley accidentally swallowed one of the bowling balls Check it out: they're identical in size, about the same weight, . . . hmmm . . . oh my . . .one of the balls did turn up missing. Waaaaaite a minute . . . wha . . . "Calling Dr. Bombay! Calling Dr. Bombay! Emergency! Come right away!"Marian makes any occasion a reason to laugh and be merry ("Merry-an!)In an effort to avoid another lame-O lawsuit (so annoying), Dave has started taking the precaution of bellowing, "FORE!" as he hurls his ball down the lane with enough force to bust through the wall and pin down one of the food court workers by her hairnet on the other side I'm not telling my score. But please note the darling hot pink ball I'm heave-ho-ing, so no worries.
