Young Love

I just played a fun game. I opened up a scanned picture file with pictures that were not labeled, and clicked on a random picture to blog about. This one was the winner.

Who would have thought that these young pups would one day grow up to be Granny, and Pooh-Pa? Not them. I love the story of how they met:

Dad came in late to his institute class and was sitting in the back. Way up in the front of the class there was this new girl with beautiful red hair, who didn't turn around the whole class. All he saw for an hour was her bun, but he fell in love. He was pleasantly surprised after the class end to find that the front was just a beautiful as the back.

30 years later they are still in love. They are kind of back to where they started. No kids in the house, and Dad has a motorcycle. What goes around...

Quick Pumpkin Patch Catch Up

Ok, I have 15 minutes before I have something else I have to do ... to catch you up on our happenings.

School has started for Bug Gutz (me) and I have become a pro. at juggling priorities. Blogging is quite far down the list, and therefore is getting neglected.

But we went to the Pumpkin Patch for Family Home Evening, and you HAVE TO SEE the pictures.

Hay ride to get the pumpkins. My rule: you are only aloud to bring home a pumpkin that you can carry. Mom will not carry your pumpkin (I seriously had no intention of carrying 7 pumpkins)
Honey Bear and his "other" sweetheart. I try not to be jealous, but she is so cute.

The Que for the Corn Cannon. Needless to say... 3 boys will never forget.

Check out Mr. Finger's trigger finger. (it went really far)

Can you find the Snake in the Corn?
Ok, gotta run. It's chili cook off time, then I've got to finish my business proposal for my technical writing class... then get some sleep tonight.
Did I mention I frosted 120 cup-cakes today (with the help of a couple beehives) This is going to be an awesome Ward Party.

Son, how do I use my calculator?

Here we have a most amazing wild creature known as The Brain. He is found in his natural habitat also known as the homework table.

He is actually teaching himself a new language found in his mother's homework called: Algebra. This, he will soon adopt as his native tongue... as Brains do.

Brains are amazing creatures. When left wild and untamed, they will teach themselves how to graph


on a Calculator. But watch out, once they have the devise figured out... they want one for themselves, and those buggers are not cheap.

My advise to those of you who may stubble on "The Brain" in the wild is: keep your college homework out of arms reach or the animal might try to follow you home.

Just Your Every Day Heros


There's the bell... where's the fire? Quick, to the fire engine. The Brains of this operation gets the front seat.

The rest of the Volunteer crew... to the back.

Put Mr. Fingers on the hose... he'll put out the fire.

Now for a demonstration on proper fire escape safety.

Don't forget to give the rescue dog plenty of love and attention.

What a busy day for the deputy fire fighters. Naps for all when we get back to the station.
P.S. Only two big disappointments today.
1. The camera's batteries were dead during the cutest part of the day: Junior Fire Fighter challenge, in uniforms and hats and everything. You'll have to trust me that the boys were exceptionally cute, and effective at saving the stuffed puppies etc....
2. The last station of the day, where we had been expecting hot dogs was out by the time we got there. BUMMER!!!!!
