Happy Birthday Dad!!!


Happy Birthday Dad!! Sorry, this was the most recent picture I could find of you. Hope you don't mind. You've been saying for years how you have one foot in the grave and how you picked out your grave sight, so I thought this picture was perfectly appropriate. I hope you have a great day! I know it's probably cramped in there with no air, but cheer up, mom should be joining you soon. She has less than nine months. We love you!

just kidding!

Hey you know that game that Dad said he would take a bunch of people to on Thanksgiving? Well yeah, he was just kidding. There is no game against Denver on that night. And he has no suite tickets. So um, sorry, Dad kind of got confused.

no laker game

No laker game on Thanksgiving dad lied. He said that he was mistaken, but there will be a game on Christmas. BTW, Cindy and I had a contest and I won.

Study finds men with more than 3 kids are more likely reach the milestone

So is dad going to live to 150?

Mission Call

For all those that are interested, Josh got his mission call! He's going to the Brazil Rio de Janeiro Mission, and he reports to the Sao Paulo MTC on January 30th. He's very excited and anxious to get out there.

This is no news to Rob, who ran into Josh's Dad in the bathroom at church, and Scott, who's in Josh's ward and sat in on Josh's ordination on Sunday with me and the rest of Josh's family. Ah, the joys of going to BYU and having all three of our wards meet in the same building around the same time.

Bob's Big Award

You wanted to hear about Bob's big award. Well, here it is. This is Mom writing; I am using Bob's log in account because I have temporarily forgotten my password. Here are two pictures from the event. Never mind the fact that the photo looks like it was taken in a common 80s-era Church building. Not so.

Bob, as you know, is a local Los Angeles lawyer. He has a reputation for being tough and unreasonable.
Last weekend, the California Association of Retired School Bus Drivers gave Bob the award for California's Big Shot Lawyer -- He Who is Better Than Everybody Else on the Planet Especially Bill Clinton, or "CBSLHWIBTEEOTPEBC" for short.

Bob was required to give a speach. He credited his wife for helping him become a good spellster. He credited his kids for helping him become broke. He credited his ward for helping him become insane. He credited his sons-in-law for helping him figure out that life is one big rip off and then your daughters move out.

But, most of all, he credited himself for his astonishingly good looks and high intellect, and I tend to agree with him.

Pictures

Here is a link to the gallery of our pictures from the weekend.

I am holding my diploma because after 3 years I finally went and picked it up from the administration building.

The sister missionaries in the pictures practically walked right in when I was proposing. They were good photographers.

We went to La Vals on north side of campus, an old hangout, with some college buddies before the game.

The game was soaking, soaking wet and rather miserable. It was a steady drizzle the whole time. Yes, I was pretty much the only one that wanted to stay. Tawni, Nate's wife, had flip flops on. We lost to USC by a touchdown, but oh well...it was fun (for me only?).

I got water in the camera so that's why the photos from the next day are fogged up. It's ok now though, the camera has dried out.

P.S. Mom I'm anxious to see your post on what Dad did this past weekend. Get Nate to help you.

Comprometidos

So I was enjoying being a menace, but along came a girl. Today in San Francisco I got engaged to Whitney. We got engaged at the Oakland temple which has the best view of the entire bay area. Even though we talked about getting married (and set our date a while ago), Whitney had no idea I was proposing and she was surprised. We're working some things out so we will be getting a civil wedding first. Whitney's bishop will perform the ceremony.

For those of you who don't know her, this is Whitney:



She's pretty much the coolest girl I've ever met. She was born in Seattle and was raised in South Salt Lake. She served a mission to Lima, Peru. She has been back about 2 years. We chat in Spanish. She is 24. She is graduating from the U of Utah with a degree in History in December. History majors are smart people, you know. We met at the law firm I was clerking for last summer in Salt Lake - she was (still is) working as a document clerk. They will probably fire one of us when we get married, and I'm probably gone because they love her so much there.

She is very intelligent and thoughtful and I love her very much. She's a deep thinker. She's my dream girl. For all of you who don't know her (and all of you who will get to know her), I believe you will love her.



P.S. Just kidding about the civil thing. Salt Lake is our temple. Feb. 15th is our day. Hope you all can make it.

Lakers v. Nuggets

I have Lakers v. Nuggets tickets Thanksgiving evening for those who want to go. First come first serve. I think I'll have 12, maybe more. Eight in our suite; my four premier tickets.

Ryan, can you buy me my own Carmello jersey? I'll pay you back.

Answers

OK, this is really what's going on. Maybe you will be able to tell who sent me these pictures based on the answers.
