It's your birthday!

Happy birthday Mom! Happy birthday Tonia! I wanted to join Anna for the great blogging well wishing extravaganza of wishing you happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

Mom, you have always given me memorable times in my life and that's why Bregelle and I miss you, if it wasn't for you wanting to take us home and homeschooling me, I would never have seen a turtle lay eggs, caught as many snakes, or read as well as I do. English is still my strongest subject on tests and next to art in school. I blame you for the artists curse (sorry Dad, but I don't think it came from your side of the family). You not only taught me at a young age to draw; which is one of my earliest memories of drawing. I remember sitting in the back of the chapel in church and you showed me how to draw a house. I drew houses that way for many years, I was on about 6 at the time. I can't thank you enough for the unwavoring support you've always given me. I wanted to say thank you and I hope you have the best birthday yet!

Tonia, I hope Ben bought you something nice. Happy birthday to you. I just wanted to say that you are my favorite sister-in-law. I really miss seeing you and the rugrats (that includes my brother). You have been a great inspiration to me since we first met. You are strong, persistent, and really fun to hang around with (despite having more knowledge of Willow). Bregelle and I both miss you and not just because you make us great food when we visit and have adorable kids. Happy Birthday!

Political stuff, I know I know...

Ok, I read this article by Orson Scott Card, a Democrat, about his feelings about Obama and the financial crisis that we "suddenly" fell into. If you are curious about who and why this happened and wonder how we didn't see this coming, it's a really good article to read. So here is the link, read it, no matter what side of the asile you stand on.

The best Sunday activity yet

What do you do on a Sunday in the city? Why you make toys, of course! I designed them, if you could tell, I think it shows. I know that the bulgey eyes and such are a little cliche, but it just looks so darn fun. Can you guess which one I made and which one was made by the wife? I'll give you a hint, she's had a lot more practice at this sort of thing then myself. The squid is called "Quinton" and I haven't named the blob other then "Blob Boy the Third". I thought that I would put in the thumbnails that we made them from, only about 1 inch by 2 inches. I have other ideas for toys like "Drag Along Johnny" and others I don't feel like talking about. See ya'll later!
