In response to the tags....

Thanks to everyone who has recently tagged me.  I'm honored that you're interested in more of my random quirks.  However, I thought I'd mix things up a bit and share 6 random things about my amazing husband, Ephraim.  

1. He has a ridiculously high pain tolerance (as in, walking around for YEARS with injuries)
2. He reads his Fundamentals of Applied Electromagnetics textbook for fun on a regular basis
3. He hasn't parted his hair since 5th grade
4. He'll eat anything if its pickled (this is a direct quote)
5. He would name a child Alora Dannon Garner if I let him (yes, from Willow)
6. He got promoted to first lieutenant this week.  Hurray! The boys and I are very proud of him and his willingess to work so hard to support our family and serve his country. 

Me putting on his new black bar.

Yes, it was a very sunny day and yes, Max is saluting.

A lobster, a Chicken, and 2 Hungry Parents

That about summed up our ward trunk-or-treat.  We had a great time even though Max was afraid of a Darth Vader he saw there.  Max also went to a Halloween party dressed as a fireman so in honor of that we built him a sweet fire engine that he's had a blast playing with.
