Assistance, please.

OK, enough already. I am WAY past being a 29 year old toddler. I need a new blog name and I have absolutely zero creative ideas at this point, so your suggestions would be wildly appreciated.
And for the LOVE will someone PLEASE put me out of my misery and teach me how to make a cute personalized blog with fun pictures and/or cute craftiness? I am begging you. Please have mercy. If I change my own blog background one more time into another boring template I will stick a hot poker in my eye.
Thanks! =)


Here's a little fact I bet you didn't know about me: once in college, I fell asleep so hard at one of the little study cubes in the library (BYU), that I totally drooled all over myself and the desk, but...because I woke up with 30 seconds to get to class, I didn't notice that I had drool all over my face until the whole campus had too.

I'm having a day like that where I'm pretty sure I will start snoring with my eyes open any minute. Mama needs sleep! And, it certainly is NOT going to improve anytime soon because... Duh duh duuuuuh:
This coming Sunday, I have what I consider the perfect storm in church callings:

THE TRIFECTA OF DEATH. Namely, trying to successfully complete the following assignments all in one Sunday:
Speaking in Sacrament meeting (the mother of all horrifying and potentially image damaging experiences one can experience)
Singing in the Choir
Teaching Relief Society

These may not sound so terrible at first blush, but keep in mind that each task has to be performed without: oversharing due to nervousness/extra time to fill, teaching false doctrine, offending any member of the bishopric or geriatric set, and being sure not to let inappropriate stories run rampant in RS (not as easy as you may think).
Given my current stress level and lack of sleep, this may be a challenge.

Looking at this an entirely different way, I could decide that having all these assignments makes me a "triple threat girl". Woman. Sister. Whatever.

Wish me luck. And wish Ammon luck too - he has an interview tomorrow and on Tuesday so keep him in your prayers!

I may never recover from the shame...

Which Office Character Are You?

You are Michael. Deep down, you are caring and good-natured, but you often express yourself in insensitive ways. Though you always try your hardest to make your talents be seen, you could use a little more self-awareness to avoid being awkward.

Nerd Quotient

Well, I am relieved to know I am at least SOMEWHAT nerdy. I cannot be married to KING NERD (what I am guessing Ammon's score will be) and not have a little nerdiness. Besides, if Adeline grows up to be as big a nerd as her dad, I want to be sure I can relate.

I am nerdier than 65% of all people. Are you a nerd? Click here to find out!

Oh bother.

May I just take a moment and give a brief shout-out to Blogger? Blogger rules. I am not always the best corresponder (Jessica J. - if you're out there...I still have an email from you in my inbox from last Jan. I hope you're doing well! I suck.), so it's fab to be able to look at everyone's blogs and see what's going on with very little effort on my part. And, you find out some interesting details also. For example - apparently Skylar was Ashley's first boyfriend. Who knew?? Never would've guessed.

Prepare yourself - today is Friday long blog day (say that 10 times fast and you get "blong". That sounds like a fun new word).

September has been a very exciting month in the Crapo household, especially since our typical biggest excitement in a given period of time is getting the mail.


Went to a Rockie's game with the Cox's

Discovered our deep and abiding love of Corn Pops

Went to Anderson's Farm for the Fall Festival. It was fabulous fun. Flippin fantastic.

where Addy also discovered that she is obsessed with chickens.

Addy also completed her first maze with flying colors.

I'd also like to give a random but necessary shout out to goat's everywhere. I think I would like to own a goat.

Also, have you ever seen a llama run? I swear there is nothing funnier. I didn't get a good picture of it, but as our wagon started to pull away, the llama's started chasing us and I was literally crying I was laughing so hard.

Out of self pity, I was going to leave off this pic, but look closer and you'll see how cute Addy looks throwing her pumpkin. *sigh*. I'm such a good mom - I'll even sacrifice my vanity/dignity for love of my child.


This water barrel train is very cute and looked like a good idea at the time.

Seriously bad call. You could not pay me to do this again. My butt has never hurt so much in such a short period of time in my entire life. Look where Addy's nose is. But, it was pretty hilarious.

Kyla and Addy on the ride back to the cars.

In other news:
  • Addy has learned to blow her nose which is pretty amusing, but, she still prefers wiping snot on my pants.
  • We have learned the word "no". Excellent. Although, it is useful since she likes to yell it at the dogs a lot.
  • We also went to Seattle last week for my little nugget of a nephew's baby blessing, but I'm blogged out at present. Pics and stories to come later.

Who's ya daddy?



Let's see. Related much?

Postscript: I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but there is just nothing cuter than a little naked baby bum.
