"I went right on biggering..."

Name that book!!!  (I'll give you a hint:  It sounds like Dr. Seuss because it is.)  Anyway, I think that's a pretty accurate statement of how I feel right now.  Here are a couple new mommy pics.  It looks like I'm torturing Brynn, but I'm just braiding her hair to keep it out of the ice cream. :)

This one was taken yesterday after church. 
And Marty thinks this very clever picture he took is soooo funny (eye roll).

The kids have gone right on biggering, too.  Sorry about this picture quality, I'm in a big hurry right now, though, so....

 Bryce got a much needed haircut....

  (this is the before, by the way)

 Everyone in our family is biggering except this guy, who has become a health food nut and exercise junkie and has lost about a bazillion pounds since we got back from Utah.

(Brynn caught his concentration face.  He is no doubt in the midst of a serious football game and is calculating the effect on his fantasy football leagues.  I know Marty's faces.) 

Maybe someday I should take relieve Brynn of camera duty and actually take a decent picture of him.  But you get the idea.

Letter to Arizona #3

Dear Arizona,

You are victorious.  You have crushed my resolve.  I withstood the heat to the best of my abilities during June and July, but August has offically kicked my trash.  I'm inclined to blame the pregnancy.  But, no matter.  I have a secret weapon - he is my knight in shining armor.  He got me out of the valley and took me on an over-nighter in nice, cool, Snowflake, AZ, where we took walks in the cool night air and ate breakfast on the patio in the morning and I almost (almost) got a little chilly.  So....in your FACE, AZ summer.
