We leave our back door open a lot because Sasquatch is insane. That's a different story for a different day, the door being open is the detail you need for this story. On more than one occasion I have walked into the kitchen to find a bird eating from Squatch's bowl, but as soon as I round the corner they'll fly back outside. It makes me jump every time, but things could be worse.

***Disclaimer: If you are or have ever been in the color guard, you may find this post offensive.***
This morning we went to Home Depot to get some supplies to finish the guest bathroom (Weeee!) and then went to get one of my favorite things in the world, a Sonic beverage. We order our Sonic beverages, and then Caleb notices that, as it is a Saturday, there is a fundraiser going on for the Hebron High color guard. He immediately goes into a fantastic rant about how much he hates the color guard. He bashes their flags, mocks their outfits, and even goes so far as to complain about his tax dollars being wasted on their very existence. He said the words "I hate the color guard" at least 4 times. It's during this rant that a voice comes over the speaker and said "Excuse me, sir?" Turns out the credit card hadn't swiped correctly so they were waiting on us before they could deliver the order. There's no telling how much of his rant they listened to.

Today is Blythe's 5 month birthday. I know we've been bad about updating everyone on her and posting pictures, so here she is! We started solid foods last week and she has mastered bananas and cereal.No matter what you put in her mouth or how many times she's tasted it she makes this face after each bite...
But it's a fun new thing and even though she makes a face like she hates it she always opens her mouth for the next bite, so maybe that's just her face!
We've gotten some new toys too. We got a Johnny Jump Up thing for the doorway, but it appears she doesn't weigh enough to make it do anything. So really it was just a Johnny Hang in the Doorway. Luckily, the Sears family let us borrow Finn's exersaucer and she loves it (Thanks Sears!)! She stands in there screaming and laughing. Unfortunately, she can only reach the cow and lion buttons (and occasionally the duck) so the whole time she's in there all I hear is moooing and roaring and the occasional quack, but the animal noises are by far her favorite aspect. Even if you face her a different direction she'll keep turning until she finds them. So that's our girl, a little 5 month old ball of fun!

I usually forget that my wife (Courtney) was a cheerleader in high school. Since I wasn't around in those days, I don't feel so bad.
