A Pleasant Trip to Pleasanton

Can you spot my mom?

Jessica and I just returned home last night from a great trip out to California. It was wonderful to get to spend time with my grandmother "Grammie," who suffers from Alzheimers, and also with Grampie who is hopefully finished with treatments for non-Hogkins Lymphoma. We also enjoyed time with cousins Drew & Trey (missed you Bryce!) and with our Aunt Marilyn. In true Morrell Family fashion we took tons of pictures that I will post links for soon. At the end of every day Grammie asked, "did I get enough pictures today?"

One quick funny story-- Grammie likes going to "the show" (movies) and really likes scary mysteries... we took her to see Mirrors & she loved it! Jessica and I, however, had to keep covering our eyes.

B-b-b-Brett and the Jets!...

Say, Murphy & McCarthy, have you seen them yet
But they're so spaced out, b-b-b-Brett & the Jets
Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful
Oh Brett he's really keen - He's got electric boots a mohair suit, you know I read it in a magazzziinnne...

b-b-b-Brett & the Jets!

Baby Coen is Here!

When Jessica and I moved to Tennessee in 6th grade we quickly became great friends with Maria Lee. Soon we called each other's parents Uncle and Aunt. We spent lots of time on AOL, playing Organ Trail, doing goofy photo shoots, cooking weird concoctions, swimming in her pool, making music videos...good times!
Maria got married on July 22, 2006 to Kris (who is awesome!)..becoming Maria Geswein. I remember the date of this day because at the reception Maria said to me "your next!" Little did either of us know that later that night I would become "next" when David proposed!...She said the same thing to me at her baby shower last month...
Anywhoo- Coen was born EARLY (shortly after 12AM) this morning. Jessica spent all day with Maria yesterday for a long day of trying to coax Coen home. She got to meet him this morning. Now Jessica & I will get to be Aunts! Sissy sent me these pictures and I just love them!

Congrats Maria & Kris!!
Love y'all and can't wait to meet your handsome son!!!!!! Seriously cannot wait!!


I stumbled upon this while blog hopping!... Its called Wordle. Here's what they made with some of my most favorite things...(click to make bigger).

How do i keep getting sucked into this...

I 80% disliked the last movie- almost swearing off HP forever... but, here I am again anxiously awaiting the next movie. Its like the comment Pastor Bauchman made yesterday- "right now your favorite college football team is undefeated, this could be your year!...and even if they end up 1&9, then you'll soon be undefeated again and the Next year you know for sure will be your year..." Thats where I am with the ol' Harry Potter and his movies.. with each disappointing strike out my hope in the next movie just grows- you gotta get it eventually right?.... anywhoo- this trailer proves the movie promising!

Its a bird... its a plane... its us flying!!

This is from a youth group trip to Kings Island back in the spring... thanks Gray for posting it!! (David & I are the ones closest to the camera!)
