Forget Obama or McCain... Vote for Al-Buddy!

I was going to post some recent pictures, but they will have to wait until later this week because this is much more exciting.

My awesomely talented brother has two t-shirt designs in a contest and you can help him win. Please go and vote for his two designs!! If he wins they will actually make and sell these shirts! You do have to create a login but Alex ensures us that it will only take a few minutes.

Here are the ones you're looking for:Here's the link one more time: http://www.c28.com/Canvas/DesignListing.aspx

Celebrity Look-Alike- Go Dodgers + Denver Bull version!

There can be no doubt about this celebrity look alike... it's Manny and the Manny-ette!








Seriously though, we had a fun time at the Dodgers/Rockies game on Sunday. (Gigi's actually signaling "home run" in that shot, although #1 would work too!)Gigi even took a nap in the mei-tai (thanks, Stacey, we still love that thing!).
And the day before we also went downtown to a really neat park with our friends, the Matthews (and later David went to another Dodgers game). To say that Gigi loves little Wyatt would be a gross understatement.David has a beef to pick with whoever coined this statement... he thinks it's a lot of bull.It's written on a cool Denver landmark though! Periodically they repaint this bull; I like this version about why Denver's unique.

Giveaway!

Sorry for the shameless self promotion twice in one week, but hey, this is for your own good... it's a giveaway on Gidget Goes Home!
I'm finally opening up my Etsy shop and I'm celebrating with free stuff for one lucky winner!
So, go check it out, if you haven't already!

Oh, and here's 2 recent shot of Gigi with her new-found love... the phone! Every time she gets her hand on one, she holds it up to her ear, places it awkwardly on her shoulder (must be copying something I've done!) and says, "uh-woh?" So serious. It is adorable.

Celebrity Look-Alike- Grandparent's Day Edition

Okay, here's one I don't really agree with... but in honor of Grandparent's day I thought I'd post it. My grandma is a big tennis fan, and she always tells us that Andy Roddick reminds her of David (she says it's the hat). What do you think?













And yes, I've got more of these up my sleeve still... :)

Happy Grandparent's Day, to all my awesome grandparents!! Love, Gigi

Please Pray!

Quick prayer request shout out...
Please pray for my dear friend (one of my oldest friends!), Sharla and her family as her husband Davey deploys on Saturday to Iraq for a year. Davey is an officer in the Army and he's leaving behind quite the flock of girlies in Colorado... Sharla, daughters Serenity & Aylah and 2 doggies!

Labor Day Camping Trip

We had a really fun weekend camping at Golden Gate Canyon State Park, which is only a little over an hour from our house. It was a weekend full of friends, doggies, hiking, and good food.Our friends the Matthews came for Friday night and Saturday, and our friend Tom & his puppies came up for the day on Saturday too. Then on Saturday, our spontaneous friends from HB, the Riedels joined us for the rest of the weekend (a trip they planned the week before!!).We even had a nice thunderstorm on Sunday evening. Gigi passed the time reading while we played Scrabble and snacked.On Monday we went downtown with the Riedels for the Taste of Colorado, and we even found the perfect truck for Alex & Angelina.
View all of the weekend's pictures here:

Does Jake Have a Long Lost Russian Sister?

Since some of you didn't agree with my last celebrity look-alike match-up, here's another.

David & I have really gotten into watching tennis this past year, starting with the Australian Open. Today my favorite player, Dinara Safina, won her quarter finals match in the US Open, so in her honor I wanted to point out how much she looks like a family friend of ours.
In fact her brother is a pro tennis player too, but I think she looks more like my brother's best buddy from HS, Jake.

What do you think?
