Out of the mouth of BABES!




Is there anything better than Autumn in Northern Utah? I'm not sure, but I just spent a week in Avon, Colorado and it was a close rival. In Utah we have a variety of colors with the maple, scrub oak, and aspen. In the area of Colorado I was in there was such a vibrant golden, yellow and sometimes orange aspen and against the blue sky it was amazing. Everyone knows I love to hike, but I wasn't in Colorado to hike I was there to help out with my newest grand baby, Isabelle, and to keep the two year old occupied and happy--no easy task! But just look at him? Isn't he delightful? And now he has a brand new baby sister, who I'm sure will end up being every bit as wonderful.

Well even though most people know I support Obama, I promise I did not preach to the two-year-old, and my son and his wife don't own a television, so he has not heard any political ads. So imagine my surprise when on my way home from Colorado while riding on the Amtrak, my daughter-in-law called me so the grandson Pi (nickname) could say his newest word--loud and clear into the phone, " OBAMA." and then he laughed hysterically. "Did he just say Obama?" I asked. "Yes," more laughter coming form the phone and in the back ground the two year old is shouting Obama, Obama, Obama, and laughing with all his energy. Now this kid is talking well for a two year old, but I can barely understand him when he says Milk, or Sopo (frog in Spanish) Yes, he's a bi-lingual two-year-old. But my DIL said he just started saying Obama, so to be fair they taught him McCain, but Pi doesn't get quite the pleasure out of saying McCain as he does Obama. Such a smart little boy.

Enjoy the autumn there, it's snowing right now outside my windows. That's right. Snow.

I'm sorry for using a four letter word on your blog.

Yeah, Matt's right, fall is quickly transformed up here, so enjoy it while you're out of state. And what a happy grandma you are! That's a great picture.

Cute grandbabies! Fall is really beautiful down here this year. Well, until it snowed several inches a few days ago and killed everything.

I would have to say that anyplace our "babies" are is better in the fall than, well, anywhere. Beautiful and fun pictures!
