Instead of deer hunting with her husband, Talia decided to enter a booth this weekend in the "What a Woman Wants" Expo show in Park City. She will be up there doing Glitter Toes with the salon and selling her tutu's & onesies (see previous posts). I wish her the best and if any of the girls out there aren't out looking for deer with their husbands, you ought to check the show out and say hi to my honey!

We went down to St. George last weekend to watch Wayne run in the marathon. Despite horrible running conditions (Rain & Wind in their face) he finished in a great time of 3 hours & 26 minutes. I don't think I could bike 26 miles in that time but way to go Wayne. Here are a few pics of the weekend that included a lot of conference watching, golfing, shopping & making more tutu's! Thanks again for the trip Di & Wayne and MAYBE just MAYBE we will run in the marathon with you one of these years.
I'm not really sure what to comment on and I'm not sure how long Talia will leave these pictures on the blog but last week her sister Tyra, brother Todd, and sister-in-law Nicole decided to wax their nose hairs????!!!!! If you would like to learn more about this (not sure why you would) feel free to email my wife.
Skylar is ALMOST to the one year and 20 lbs. minimum limit to be able to ride in a front facing car seat. She is going crazy laying down facing backwards in the car. She has learned from her older cousins that it is much more fun to sit and watch TV & movies while traveling. Talia decided to ger her the seat and take some pictures because she is so dang cute and was so excited trying out the front-facing seat. We are excited to put the DVD players in the headrests to work FINALLY!
Talia and I were talking the other night about what's going on in the world around us the past few months and will be interesting to look back a year from now to see how the world has or hasn't changed.
Some of the notable events that have taken place recently:
Congress recently passed the bail-out (excuse me: rescue) package of 700 Billion dollars. Our country is definately moving towards socialism which makes me sick to even think about.
Senators Barack Hussein Obama II & John McCain have been debating it our for the presidential nomination. Is there a lesser of the two not so great options? I question had the economic crises began a little earlier in the year would Mitt Romney have obtained the Republican nomination had the debates been more economic based than "buzzwords & timetables"?
Stock market dropping over 2400 points (22%) over an 8 day period then gaining back 936 points (11%) in just one day.
National unemployment rate above 6% the highest in over 5 years.
Bubble bursting in the U.S. housing market.
National gas prices sky rocketings to an all time high average of $4.12 (7/17/2008) and finally beginning to drop to an average of $3.13 (10/13/2008).
Cost of living as demonstrated in the mere rise of food sharply increasing.
Finger pointing could go on for hours on who, what, when, where, why and how this has affected so many familes nation and worldwide but we count our blessings for the many wonderful blessings we enjoy. Gospel, family, friends and health are definately at the top of our lists of things we are grateful for. We truly pray for those who are less fortunate than we are at this time (especially going into the winter months) and again are so grateful for all we have been blessed with.

We decided to sneak in a quick trip down to St. George with Grammee and Papa Wayne. The boys golfed while the girls shopped and made Tutu's. Here are some pics from our fun weekend getaway. Thanks Di & Wayne for a fun trip!

You gotta love the Utah State Fair. Where else can you go and People Watch the most W.T. people on earth? It is like the annual gathering where you can come show off your mullet and wear your basketball jersey at the same time and not feel out of place. This was definately for Skylar and she loved every minute of it. I think the pony ride was her favorite as she waved to all the onlookers. She loved checking out the animals and learned how to point where she wanted to go. Talia had to get a carmeled apple and we were accompanied by Tyra, Victoria and Mike. Thanks for a fun time and we can't wait to go again next year.
