I learned (the hard way) that if the turn signal in my van is left on while you are driving, after an unknown amount of time (possible 3-5minutes) the van starts beeping and blaring. It is very frightening when this occurs. Deann and I about had heart attacks! I wish I would have known about this feature sooner so I would have known why my van was acting possessed.

Brynn and Chad had their darling baby boy yesterday. They named him Trevor LaVon. I think it is a darling name! I know where the LaVon comes from, but not the Trevor. He was born 9/20/08 and was 8lbs 2oz and 19 inches. Mom and baby boy are doing well. We are going to visit tonight. Good job you two! We love you guys!

Ashton and Violet are taking a bath. Darin walks in the room and hears:
Ashton: You can only do it if you have a penis.
Darin: Ashton! What can you do if you have a penis?
Ashton: Make a fountain.
Violet: I can make a fountain too!
I'm guessing that the bath water had a nice yellow tinge.
