Flashback Friday

We need to do Flashback Friday more often because childhood, no matter who you are, is weird and hilarious. Kate and I were talking about this memory the other day and it's definitely cyberspace material.

When Kate and I were between the ages of lets say 4 and 12 we had a little secret. We didn't know it was a big deal until we had a little bus stop encounter. Weird stuff happens at bus stops people--like sometimes people bring beef in a baggy to the bus stop in the morning and knaw on it until the bus comes and throughout the whole bus ride. Anyway...that's besides the point. So one uneventful morning at the bus stop some kids were talking about underwear and how they knew some siblings who shared underwear. They were acting so appalled and disgusted as they were telling this story. Then the storytellers turned to us and said, "you guys don't share underwear do you?" Kate and I looked at each other with horrified faces, screaming from the inside, please lie, please lie, please lie. By the grace of heaven we both replied with, "oh no, never!" I remember our conversation as we walked home from the bus stop that day:

Kate: "Geez, I didn't know sharing undies was that bad."

Becca: "I know, we're the same size and it all looks the same I don't see what the big deal is."

Kate: "We have to start writing our initials on our undies."

Becca: "I know, think of how bad it would be if they knew we've always shared undies."

Kate: "Mom is not going to be happy about this."
*Once again, this picture has nothing to do with this post except maybe they are walking to or from a bus stop. I just really like it and I think it needs to be appreciated. Holla!

Congratulations President Barack Obama.

I know politics are a touchy subject. Believe me I know. I live in Provo, Utah of all places. Living in such a conservative state, I try to avoid any talk of politics. But today I feel inclined to say a little something regarding today's election results. 

Today Senator Barack Obama was elected to be President of the United States. Regardless of political parties, it was an historic day for America. Today we elected our first African-American President, a major breakthrough in U.S. history. Although it has been a tumultuous few years, I still feel so proud to be an American. Today was a big stepping stone toward equality. America was able to put race aside and elect the person they felt most suited for the job. When just decades ago people of other races didn't have the right to vote. We have come a long way. I sincerely hope the next four years will be better than the last. 

*I do not wish to argue over politics, so if you have a negative comment please keep it to yourself. This has nothing to do with political parties. Thank you.

Halloween 2008

We are not huge Halloween people so usually it's not a day too out of the ordinary, but this year we decided to make a little party of it. We had a dance party at Kate's apartment--Club Omni on Halloween night. Here's a little picture documentation:
Ally and I were Bleaker and Juno.
Kate, Ash, and Cass were Mormon Hags or Sister wives.
Elizabeth had mutiple costumes but here she is a jazzerciser.
