Natalie and I found this. No real purpose for posting except for humor.
Sometimes when I change Hyrums' diapers I feel this way.

With the twins coming, we are creatively thinking of ways to multi-task. If you can come up with other ideas, let us know. This was our first idea. Posted by Picasa

One Down, One To Go

The girl's crib is up and ready. Natalie's mother found the bedding and it looks great. We have the boy's bedding but the crib that someone kindly gave to us is broken. We will have to find one somewhere else.

By the way, the babies are doing great. Our last doctor’s appointment turned out really well and the babies seem to have all their parts. Natalie has been worried because she usually only feels one baby at a time and can’t tell if she feels them both. But, last night the babies were going nuts. She said they were kicking in all directions and I think it really made her feel good. We have another doctor’s appointment on the 18th so we will let you know then any new info. Posted by Picasa

Flight Attendant Announcements

Just thought you might enjoy some humor.

1. On a Continental Flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."

2. "In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favorite."

3. "Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments."

4. "As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses."

5. And from the pilot during his welcome message: "Delta Airlines is pleased to have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"

6. Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement: "We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of US Airways."

7. A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number 293, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax... OH, MY GOSH!" Silence followed, and after a few minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger in Coach yelled, "That's nothing. You should see the back of mine."

Comment Moderation

Hi Everyone, Brandon here...
I just wanted to give you a heads up about comments on this blog. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee, make comments. The only comments we get are from our best friends the Ames, none from family. Also, just so you know, I have turned on a comment moderator. So if you make a comment and it doesn't immediately appear, it will soon. I have done this just in case some unknown person makes an obscene comment. This will allow me to delete it before it is posted on the site.

Again, please comment. We are so lonely and we love to hear from you.

My New Bed

Our boy is growing up. In preparation for the newcomers, we moved Hyrum's crib into the babies room and brought in the fire truck bed that his Grandparents bought him at a garage sale. We can't beleive how old he is now. Natalie almost cried when she saw him in his new bed.

More Zoo Pictures

After the zoo, our boy was gone within 5 minutes of leaving!

Our Trip to the Zoo

Oh what a day...We decided to go to the zoo on the day that was the coolest. The weather man said SLC would have a high of 83, which was true, but he failed to tell us that the largest storm in Utah in decades was going to cross right over the top of Hogle zoo.

A power line in the far end of the zoo fell down so there was no power for a square mile. We got there and waited out the storm with my sister Lorri and her family. It did eventually let up and we went inside. Hyrum had a blast. He got to see all of the apes and monkeys, the camels, the free roaming birds (which Natalie didn't appreciate), the elephants and the rhinos. He had two favorite parts of the zoo. One was the primates. He loved to watch the baby orangutan flip and twirl on her ropes. He also loved a family of chicks that hid by thier mother. Hyrum loved them so much that he tried to take a few home with him. We later found out that half of the park was closed due to the downed power line so the park refunded our money. We were actually glad since Hyrum wouldn't have made it any longer.


Hi Everyone,
I know my family has already seen this but our friends have not. Hope you like it.

"Loving husband Ed was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really mad. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE."

"The next morning Ed got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a small box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale."

"Funeral services for Ed have been scheduled for Friday."
