Please Help My Cousin

My cousin posted this on our family website and in hopes of helping him out I decided to post it on here so that maybe some of you would vote for him too!!  I watched the video and it is the cutest thing ever.  It is his daughter Sophie narrating and his other daughter Emma that drew the pictures.

Greetings Family!
So I know that most of you (if not all) have been informed about the Hoopes Vision Lasik Contest that we're a finalist in. The support that has been shown our family has been overwhelming. I know a lot of you have posted about it in facebook, on blogs, and even emailed your friends. I'm just writing to say thank you! We appreciate it so much! I have been blessed with such a loving and supportive family.

If you haven't heard.... Last month Rachel entered me in a contest for free lasik from Hoopes Vision. There were over 100 entries and we found out today that I am 1 of 6 FINALISTs!! Whoot Whoot! The winner gets free lasik valued at $5,000.00 so we really want to win. So anyways, it would be great if you could go vote for us.

Here's the details.

    * Go to (our video is in the Humorous Category and it shows a crayon picture of me in my blue striped pajamas... Emma drew it:)

    * To Vote you go to the blue and white banner at the top of the page that says, "Vote for your Favorite Finalist"

    * You have to vote for one video in each category (I just picked random videos in the other two categories, they don't compete against us so it doesn't matter)
    * Our video is under the humorous category and it's called My Dad's Eyes!
    * You can vote once a day (That would be awesome if you could do this, but even one or two votes would be great!)
    * Contest closes November 28th at midnight

Rachel's brother also started a   blog - . He started this blog to help encourage people come get a   "good read" and then do a "good deed" (by voting for my video).

Again, thank you everyone for voting! (remember you can vote everyday!)

Fun Halloween pictures!

I don't dress up for Halloween very often, but this year I was invited to a party and I found a creative idea online so I decided to make it.
I'm a box of tissue.  That Rubix cube is my friend Libby.
The party was at my friend Laura's house and she had some fun minute to win it games prepared.  We had a good time.  Here are some of the other people at the party.
Kacee was a bunch of grapes and Kyle was a hell's angel
I don't know the first guy very well but the "Slim Jim" is my friend Jason.  He is so funny!  (He has been featured on this blog before)  It just seemed like a perfect costume for him.
Then of course I couldn't leave out pictures of some of my cute nieces and nephews.
You can hardly see Bret, he was a ninja.  Marshal was a soccer player and Danny a skeleton.
I guess my Brother and his wife went to a party Friday and Saturday so they dressed Ellie up in two different costumes.  She looks adorable in both.
She is kind of pulling a funny face but this was the best picture of her sleeping beauty dress.

A Beautiful Day in Zion

My Brother Lyle and his wife Andrea decided to take their kids to Zion while they had a couple days off for UEA.  They invited me to come along since they went on my day off.  It was a perfect day for hiking.

We hiked to the upper Emerald Pools.  It was really cool up there but it felt nice after the hike.
When I was in sixth grade we went there for a field trip.  Back then they used to let you swim in the pool but they won't let you do that anymore.  I doubt I would want to now.  That water is COLD!  After that  hike we ate lunch at the lodge. 

Then we decided to hike Weeping Rock.  This was the boys playing while we took a short break for the baby to be fed.
Marshal, Bret and Danny

I love Weeping Rock!  It is a really short hike and so beautiful.  It is amazing to me that it drips down water all the time.  As it turns out it was actually raining too. 
Then we decided to go watch the 3-D movie at the IMAX.  It was about prehistoric water creatures.  It was a fun one to see in 3-D. 
We left that morning around 9 am.  When they were dropping me off about 6 pm Marshal (my five year old nephew) said, "But you haven't been to our house today."  I said, " But I have been with you all day."  He said, "Yeah, but not at our house."  I am glad the little guy likes me because I am enjoying having them around.
