Mad Runner

And here's our mad guess which one it is.

We were so excited to see Hayley run last Saturday (December 1st at Mt. Sac). Well, we were mostly just excited to see Hayley, but seeing her run made us even more excited. It was also a landmark day for the Weitzel family, as Paul was heard to remark: "I hope our kids are runners." If you know Paul, you know that is a stunning sentence. Point: Carr family.

I just want to point out that Hayley must have been going super fast, because the picture is so blurry. It couldn't have anything to do with my poor picture-taking ability. She just runs fast.

Thanksgiving -- Arizona Style

So we start off with a very Lindsay- Lohan-
looking Eva. Kind of the "caught in the act" stare. Only Eva's "act" is just looking adorable. That's why we love her. She's intoxicating, really.

We love visiting Dave and Teresa's house. Not only for the cute kids, but the abundant food, great weather (in November), and of course the random stories of pogo stick murderers and creepy old women with walkers (thank you, Warren).

Kyle wouldn't let us see his pretty face.

Everybody got a chance to play Spiderman. Check out the irony here: David wearing a Green Lantern t-shirt, yet posing as Spiderman. I believe this represents the ultimate Freudian struggle of id battling superego. Here's a good blog question: who would win the fight between the Green Lantern and Spiderman? Id v. Superego? Super-Powerful-Ring-Bearing InterGalactic FBI v. Regular Guy Who Got Bit By a Spider? David v. Porter? Where's Freud when we need him most? (So thinking about this more, I think Dave would be the Id, the shirt would be the Superego, and Porter's mask would be the Ego. Hmm, fascinating....or else not).

Tide Pools

Paul and I (and Mikey and Amber Adling) went to the Laguna Beach tide pools for Veteran's Day. There's really only one word to describe it: radical.
We found the most gigantic-est star fish ever. Actually Mike and Amber Adling found it, but we had the camera, so we got all the glory. Bwahaha...

We ran into some real-life pirates. It was amazing. Thank goodness I was there or Paul never would have made it out alive.

There's a Party Goin' On Right Here...

We had a surprise party for Paul on Thursday (Nov 1). He was, surprisingly, surprised. He's now 26, and officially super old. This is also a good shot of our sweet apartment (note the bunny ears on top of the TV).

Dena's family came to California last weekend. We spent the entire day at Disneyland. I can't think of a better life. Here we have Paul and Wendy as posers, then Jim, Dena, Markie, Wendy and Matthew after the Rushin' River Rapids water ride in California Adventure (I can never remember the name of that ride), then Joe and James with their best scared-faces on, and finally Markie, James and Joe lookin' all fine.

We Made It!

Well, folks, we've finally done it. We're now officially "bloggers." That sounds so crude, doesn't it? Some sort of middle-school insult. "Your mom's a blogger." I figured this would be the best way to express my creativity, and-or lack thereof. Unlike most people who will view this blog, we don't have any cute kids. In fact, we don't even have any non-cute kids. But Paul and I think we're pretty dang cute even without the kids, so let's get this thing started!

Just a note on the picture: This is us in the Brecon Beacons region of Wales. Probably one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. Note the rainbow in the background. If leprechauns lived in Wales, I'm sure there would be one at the end of that rainbow.
