he's got skills

scrunching his nose up to be even more uber cute
standing up any chance he gets

scaling the couch to get items he cannot have (i.e. ipods, cell phones, etc.)

turning into a hippie with a deep love for lava lamps

participating in his first parade with the help of a champion dad who pushed him, passed out flyers, bottles of mt. dew and kept up with everyone! 

p.s.  Heaton just got 3 new teeth on top!  He started grinding his front top tooth with his front bottom tooth and it is driving me bonkers!  He looks like an adorable snaggletooth!

how do you get a stinking awesome job!

I seriously love my job.  I love that I never quite know what will happen each day, or who I will talk to, or try to help, or what insainly hilarious joke I will hear.  I love my co-workers and I really love that I only work part time, and am still allowed to do men's group!  Men's group is a monthly activity that I plan for about 10-15 men so that they can do some male bonding and learn appropriate social skills.  Although I get paid, get to be with amazing men that teach me about the simple wonders of life, and enjoy the great outdoors, this is still called a job.  Man, how did I get this stinking awesome job!?

begging for families

I know that I keep shamelessly texting, facebooking, and emailing y'all, but its for such a great cause.  Please help us get this money in Utah to start a crisis and prevention center for teens.  We don't have that out here and desperately need it.  You can vote 3x a day for the month of August!  Then I will never bug you about this again! Texting is the easiest way to vote, then through f book, then through the Pepsi website.  If you want a tutorial (many have requested this!) on how to vote, just let me know.  Thanks for being there for me!
