Oliver on TV

One of the reporters where I work did a Halloween story and filmed our fat, black cat, Oliver. We weren't home when they filmed him, but our friend Lucas was at our house and said that Oliver didn't like the camera. He apparently ran to hide under the bed and wouldn't come out. Here's a link to the news story. He's near the end. Oliver, you're on tv!!!!

Here's a pic of Oliver before he put on the pounds! :)

Skulls and Bones

Halloween is a pretty big deal at our house. Brook especially loves decorating our house. He has spent a lot of time in the garage for the past couple of weeks. This year, he added a new project to his list. He made these hanging cages. He ordered the skulls and bones from Oriental Trading Co. They have awesome deals, by the way. He makes scary heads too. He buys them from Sally Beauty Supply and uses spray paint to make them look really creepy. Then he puts them on stakes. It looks really scary at night. Brook bought some red and green flood lights for extra creepy effect.

Two Years

Today is mine and Brook's 2 year anniversary. I'm so happy and blessed to have him as my husband and best friend. He puts up with a lot from me. :o) I love you so much, Brook! I can't wait for many, many, many more years together!!!

New Monkey

When I got home last Saturday, Vito surprised me with his new monkey.

Here's an old pic of what it used to look like.

Here's a comparison of his old and new monkey. We haven't thrown the old one out yet, even though Vito's completely forgot about him and is constantly carrying around his new one.

Brook's friend, Lucas, has moved back to Fayetteville. He came over to our house and hung out on Sunday and last night too. He helped me with dinner last night and made some really good pork chops. We're happy you're home, Lucas! Here are a couple of pics from our trip to visit him when he lived in Oregon...
