Check out this spot from my friends at Richter 7.

I forgot to post a link to a blog I made with Yancy, Adrienne, and Brandon for my Media Literacy class. It's a resource to help parents with young children help them to be more media literate. If you are a parent of a small child, or if that interests you, click here.

I'd like to invite everyone to check out this amazing little greeting card generator from XM Radio. It was made by none other than my close friend and former art director Chateau. You can choose your holiday scene, characters, music, and message--all generated from scalable black and white line drawings and yellow blinking XM Radio logos. Notice the subtle reference to the upcoming Flaming Lips film Christmas on Mars. I wonder how that got in there!?

Today I went to the last class of my life. It was the culmination of 18 years of education. To commemorate the event, I took a picture with the last teacher of my life, Flash ninja Brent Barson. Notice the beautiful BYU cougar on rainbow background behind us. That's what happens when you are a design professional.

Well this year definitely ranks among the best Thanksgivings ever. Since the grandkids live in Utah now, Mom and Dad came up from San Diego for the occasion. We played our traditional family soccer game. We ate our traditional turkey dinner. And the morning after, my nephews gave me their traditional wake-up pounce. Does life get any better?
For some reason I have suddenly become fascinated with family history. While Dad was in town, I took the opportunity to go with him to see the tomb of our ancestor Gilberth Haws in the Provo Cemetary. Gilberth is my great-great-great-grandfather. He came to America from England after converting to Mormonism and settled here in Utah.
This is the hospital where my dad was born in Lehi.
This is the place card Samuel made me for Thanksgiving dinner. Notice that the turkey is escaping the wrath of the evil oven.
This is Caleb learning how to use an iPod.
This is how I get my workout in.

Saturday night, neighbor Leslie came over to watch The Ring with me. She's a huge fan of the film and has been to all of the locations of the film. (It was filmed in and around Seattle.)
On Sunday I went over to Katie's house so we could paint. Drawing inspiration from Urban Outfitters designs, I drew up some geometric flowers in pencil. Now we are giving them some life with acrylic paints. Here in the photo we see Katie and Ashley exploring their inner Picasso.
