Happy Halloween 2010


For Halloween this year, Drew dressed as Commander Fox, Landon dressed as Winnie the Pooh and Will dressed as Obi Wan Kenobi, while I dressed as Darth Vader.


Ma and Pa stopped by while Drew, Will and I were out trick-or-treating.


Landon helped Mama pass out the candy to all the trick-or-treaters. Between doorbell rings, Landon kept going from one bucket to another excitedly rearranging candies all night long.


While Daddy napped with Landon this afternoon, Drew, Will and Mama carved a pumpkin together.


Drew won this pumpkin from his teacher at school.

Tulsa Run 2010

553-tulsa-run-logo.pngToday, Drew, Will, Uncle David and I ran in the 33rd annual Tulsa Run. Mama has been sick and so she sat out this year and stayed home with Landon. Drew and I ran the 2K Fun Run while Will and Uncle David took a more leisurely pace. The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time!

Pumpkin Town 2010


Today we made our annual visit to Pumpkin Town!


Drew, Landon and Will are getting in the Halloween spirit.


Landon was first up with the annual lifting of the pumpkin. Despite a heroic effort, though, the pumpkin just wouldn't budge.


Will successfully got his pumpkin off the ground but it didn't last long and he quickly resorted to rolling it around to prove his dominance over the gourd. (Note, I actually looked up whether a pumpkin is a gourd. In doing so, I learned far more than I intended about squash, gourds, and pumpkins. The best line: "pumpkins are a diverse, taxonomically complicated group." As with many things, there is no simple answer, but suffice it to say, pumpkins are gourds.)


Drew conquered the lifting of the pumpkin!

Disney World Vacation

Last night we all got back from a full week in Disney World! We flew to Orlando on Monday, went to the Magic Kingdom on Tuesday, Epcot on Wednesday, Animal Kingdom on Thursday, Hollywood Studios on Friday, back to the Magic Kingdom on Saturday and flew back to Tulsa on Sunday. We all had an amazing time that was truly magical. Thanks to Mama who planned the whole thing and Aunt Donelda who met us at our hotel/resort and was an instrumental third-adult the whole week.

I don't know if I'll ever get around to putting up all the photos that I want to, but if I don't start, I never will, so here we go:


The iconic Cinderella Castle is the central point of the Magic Kingdom which first opened in October 1, 1971. Last year it was the most visited theme park park in the world with an estimated 17.2 million visitors.


The visionary Walt Disney and his 1928 creation that started it all, Mickey Mouse.

Idiot Parking


I don't understand people who park like idiots. Do they not know they utterly failed to park their vehicle within the lines and have, therefore, rendered an adjoining space useless? I don't see how someone could be so completely clueless about their actions and their consequences. The alternative is that they just don't care. Oops, I parked like a jerk and I'm essentially taking up two spaces, oh well, the world revolves around me and and everyone else is a little peon compared to my greatness so I don't care. I don't know which is a greater parasite to the world the dangerously clueless or the conceited a-hole.


These pictures were all taken on Sundays, after church, when we go eat, and parking spaces are at a premium. They are not taken of a car surrounded by empty spaces. This one was directly in front of a restaurant. My vehicle is the one on the right. I was so ticked off that I pulled in any way. It took all my self-control not to repeatedly slam my door into the offending car. That would have been wrong. But, I have no moral/ethical problem with gently placing my car door against the offending car being very careful not to cause any damage...followed by my exerting all my might against my door so that I can exit my vehicle. I then carefully opened the rear door...and proceed to extract my one-year old from his car seat while again...exerting all my might against the the door. Technically, my car doors never left my space...so I have no trouble sleeping at night. But, if he left there without two tiny little dings, then they're making cars out of Kryptonite.


Apparently, I'm not the only one bothered by such idiots. Here is a website where you can get I Park Like An Idiot bumper stickers...and then take a photo of the offending car with the bumper sticker on it and send it in (they have a nice collections.) There's also a neat website where you purchase actual citations which have the Nice Parking, Dude website address on them. The website then shows if the offender checks the citation for which you leave them a message on the website and they can leave a response. And, then there's the classic You Park Like An A--hole which is a less formal and free give a notice and post a picture site.

Borg Cube


The Borg Cube which assimilated me almost nine years ago. Who'd have thought assimilating alien species and worlds throughout the universe would leave behind such a wake of litigation to defend?

Lady Liberty


I spent two days in Norman this week with Lady Liberty. I just need one more Lady statue for a trifecta.

I was in Norman working on this, note the last sentence of the article.
