Remember that Adidas spot we made in commercials class earlier this year? Well, it made its way to YouTube recently. It's got 585 views and counting.

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.

The other day my coworker Libby knocked over one of the potato-head ceramic figurines I got at DI a couple of weeks ago. Sure, Potato Girl only cost me $0.50, but she had already appreciated quite rapidly in sentimental value. Libby felt so bad she bought Krazy Glue and put her back together again. Thanks Libbinator!

I went out and gathered candy with my nephews on Halloween night. It was my first time in 15 years to participate in this tradition. Kind of a silly practice really, yet kind of cool too. I wonder who started the whole practice of trick-or-treating in the first place. I'd like to think it has some profound historic purpose. Or maybe it was created in an effort to bring communities together. The world may never know.
There is one thing we can be sure of though. Mars, Nestle, and Hershey's are doing quite well these days.

Sometimes I wonder if choice of Halloween costume has anything to do with future adult professional life. If so, I think my family is going to have some serious issues.
Then again, if that were the case, I'd be a monkey right now.
