We went to visit Grandma & Grandpa Hansen on Sunday. We love going to see them, they are always so fun to be with, and grandpa says the funniest things. Cy fell outside and was crying, and Grandpa says, "Aww, you'll feel better when it quits hurting." I started to laugh and thought that was a cute grandpa quote I wanted to remember.

I haven't posted a Max world in a while, and this conversation cracked me up!
Maddux: Mom, why does Heavenly Father & Jesus live up in the sky?
Mom: So they can watch over us and keep their eyes on us.
Maddux: So they can see everything in the world? They know there is a blue car and a red truck right there, and a McDonalds over there?
Maddux: So, they know I'm itching my butt right now?
Mom: (quickly turns her head around while in the car to glance at her, and sure enough Max is smiling with her hand on her butt). They sure do (as I'm beginning to laugh hysterically).
Later that night....
Max: Hey Ryllie guess what? Heavenly Father and Jesus know I'm eating a carrot right now.
The original Smughes family! But wait, where is Heather? Unfortunately she lives in Vegas and couldn't make the trip up. We sure missed her and her cute family! So we are still in a qwest for a complete family picture. The soon-to-be outdated picture of the Hughes clan with my dad. Mitsy will be adding to the mahem in January.
This message is for my old roommate Adrienne. When you called me on Friday I was in Las Vegas and for some odd reason your number isn't in my history on my phone so please call me back! I was hoping you might check my blog again and see this message. I love ya!

I totally had English classes with Brandon Mull, author of Candyshop Wars and the Fablehaven series. He came trick or treating last Halloween to my house with his kids and I recognized him and said, "How do I know you?" He was probably thinking, "duh, I'm like a successful author", but he was so nice as we realized we had English together at the Y. 2 months later I see an article about the author of Fablehaven and there was his picture. I'm an idiot. So anyway, his aunt lives across the street and invited him to our ward book club (we were reading the Candyshop Wars), which he did come to last Tuesday and we were all able to visit with him and get our books signed. It is pretty cool to see an old starving student take off and do so well, and his success is well deserved, he is a pretty cool guy.

This one is for Mitsy.
Everyone in my family is laughing right?

So, I wasn't going to put Cy in preschool this year, he still has 3 years before kindergarten, but my neighbor decided to do a little preschool in her home for only $35 a month. Cy's best friend Nate enrolled for the class so I decided it would be fun for him. On the first day of school he was so excited. He kept saying, "Mom, I wanna go to my cwass. Mom, its time to go." When we got there he turned and looked at Maddux and said, "This is my pweschoo Max, not yours." Anyway, he loved it and here is a picture of Cy with his friends Nate, and Porter on the first day of pweschoo. Casey asked him later how preschool was and Cy casually says, " I liked it."
Casey grew up in such a fun neighborhood and made some life long friends. A bunch of us got together last Saturday for a BBQ. The kids had a blast in the hot tub and the men watched the boxing match inside. The women did what we do best, talked each others ears off. As you can see by the picture, Casey was out with the women, hmmm. Go figure. The real motive was making sure the kids didn't destroy the hot tub. The kids got out before the main event fight, so he got to enjoy some of it. So this was our first deck party with no patio furniture! If anyone sees a screamin deal on patio furniture this fall, please let me know! Hook a sista up! Anyway, we had so much fun with these friends. Thanks everyone for coming!
