Last Friday night we went to our friends "Annual Halloween Bash" and we had a great time! We ate some yummy food and got to hang out with good friends. We came up with our costumes very last minute but I think they turned out to be quite fun!
we went as...
Jelly Bellys...Bellies? Whatev.
Everything was super easy to put together but the the logo took a little more time than planned. So two hours before the party, I was just going to print the logo out big and cut it out - but as luck would have it our printer ran out of colored ink. So what's a girl to do? Of course, make them myself. Duh! I pulled out my trusty exacto knife and black sharpie and found some red and yellow paper and made all three logos. I guess all those HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS of Typography classes I took paid off. haha. I was pretty proud of myself for whooping these bad boys together in the short amount of time I had. I think everything turned out great!
It was really fun to dress up and also to check out everyone else's costumes - here we are with some of our friends...
our friends elmo and the joker and of course a "girly man" a doctor and Logan as himself...actually he was a super cute giraffe, but he is still super cute none the less.
I wish we would have taken more pictures - but we were too busy chatting!
Yay for friends who throw Halloween parties!

Brody is digg'in his jumperoo these days. he is a happy boy when he jumps.
Fall Quarter started for Tyson and he is now in his 2nd year of Graduate School. He just took a huge test to determine wether or not he can continue on in his program for his PhD - and of course he PASSED! We are so proud of him - he truly is gifted and incredilby smart! Great job bubs! We love you so much!
with out fail...a walk with a cat nap = perfect!
our little 'Brody Burrito' as Tyson likes to call him. he loves to be all snuggled.
we took a trip a little over a month ago (I can't believe it's already been that long) to St.Louis to see some of our most favorite people ever - Val and David. We had a great time with them - and my friend Becca and I were able to throw Val a baby shower! Baby Miyasaki will be here in hopefully 28 days! We can't wait to meet her!
our family walk. we love our walks. and i LOVE our little family photo - Brody pretty much says it all.
a couple of weeks ago we went to Kentucky to visit our friends - Kally, Kris and Brody Barnett. Of course we took lots of pictures of the 'Brodys'. these two are great together!
so Brody really likes to be on his belly. but lately he keeps trying to crawl...he really tries so hard, and this is one of his many great attempts.
the Brody Bear loves his naps. and i love that he ALWAYS wakes up this happy.
a lovely afternoon at the park...winter is just around the corner, we need to soak up all the nice weather while we can.
brody wants you to know that 'two is better than one'.
i love how content he is. he loves sitting up. and lately this mt.dew bottle is one of his favorite toys? i dunno. whatever makes him happy.
and maybe we've shared one with him a couple more times. :)
we had a date night the other night and it was so fun. we went out to eat and then we went to one of our favorite places 'barnes and noble'.
