The Garret Andersons

And a Happy Halloween to you too!

Let's just get it out of the way right now that Garret & Tiffany are most likely doing the same as when you saw them last.  Nothing has changed.  Tiffany bums around the house in Denver while Garret travels to Utah nearly every week to bring home the bacon.  We are blissfully happy, life couldn't be better, blah blah blah. Now that we're all updated let's see what the kidlets have been doing, k?
Jack is in the sixth grade and just finished up his second season of tackle football.  He caught the only completion for BOTH seasons during their fourth game this year.  The kid is money.  I don't get why they don't pass to him every time.  He also had fun taking down kids twice his size (which is almost every kid, by the way) on defense.   As one super cheesy/lame football commentator said once.... "They forgot to measure his heart."  

He was also elected Student Body Vice President due to his genius campaign posters (such as the one below) and super funny speech.  Oh, and because he is Chrissi, Shelly & Stacey's nephew.

Tanner is now in the fourth grade and has finally (after 6 years) decided that Pokemon might not be as awesome as he once thought it was.  

He has also turned into a reading FOOL this year.  He read the entire Lightening Thief series in about 4 weeks.  He would walk around with his nose in his book like he used to do with his Nintendo DS.  We often go up to bed at 11:30 or midnight and find this going on:

But how can you get mad at your kid for READING?  You can't.

Brynn started Kindergarten this year and was sad today was a snow day because she "misses school."   She's doing the usual 5 year old girlie stuff like gymnastics, dance and getting her Dad to do anything she wants.

She also has taken to posting signs on her door and laying out her clothes (complete with accessories) the night before.  This only worries her mother a lot.

We hope you all are doing well and we look forward to Camp Beaver this year!

Now, this is what I'm talking about. Costumes, football, clever campaign posters, readers, party dresses. A little bit of everything.

Well done.
