The Brain

Without fail, we will get at least one piece of mail each year around Christmas time addressed to "Brain". While it is quite flattering to Brian, it does make me wonder what that makes me. Should Brian be wearing a shirt that says, "I'm with Idiot--->"? In the worst case scenario, I think it might be an indirect hint that I must be Pinky from "Pinky and the Brain" as seen on the Animaniacs:

Either way, it always brings us a chuckle.

Yeah! Brian graduated on December 12th! It was an amazing commencement with President Uchtdorf as the speaker. We even had someone watch Sydney so I wouldn't have to cart the carrier everywhere! Thank you visiting teachers! Oh, and did I mention Brian shook hands with President Uchtdorf?

Brian is so thrilled to be graduated. He is still recuperating from the last semester but he is definitely enjoying being done. He says that now he can play games guilt-free! He will now have even more time to devote to job-hunting, so wish us luck!

President Uchtdorf and President Clark (yeah, I was sitting VER far away)

Where's Brian?

Do you think what I think?

So, before I get into this, I want you to know I love Christmas songs but every now and then I think the lyrics need some work.
So, I was listening to the radio and the song "Do You Hear What I Hear" came on. It got to the verse where it said, "A child, a child, shivers in the cold. Let us bring him silver and gold" and I thought...... what? Because that is exactly what a cold person needs. You can't cuddle up with cold metal! It made me think of Alanis Morrisette's song "Ironic" and how she says, "It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife".
Now, of course, I did not bring up the issue without a solution! So, I propose the following changes to this verse:

Option #1: Forget about the cold altogether. "This child's, this child's coming was foretold. Let us bring him silver and gold."
Option #2: This variation is inspired by my mother-in-law who loves using this saying. "A child, a child shivers in the cold. A blanket would be as good as gold."
Haha. I guess I have too much time on my hands for thinking about these things!

2 months

Sorry, this post is late but here are some pictures from Sydney at 2months old. She has changed a lot!

We like to read to Sydney and she seems to like it, too!
