thesis defense... literally

man, when they say "thesis defense," they really mean it. you have to defend that thesis with your life. those professors totally grilled him. ben defended his thesis on tuesday, september 18. he did such a fabulous job. he totally sounded like he knew what he was talking about. considering this crazy, physics stuff that he's been studying, he totally had to be faking it. just kidding. in all seriousness, he did a great job and i'm so proud of him for getting through it... and he passed. woohoo! now he just has to make some revisions and get it printed and we can finally move on with our lives. we still don't know when we are moving yet, but i'll keep you posted.

yes, still alive... no, not pregnant

i've been a very poor blogger lately. we're still in utah... waiting. well, I'M waiting. ben is working his trash off to get his thesis done. but he's VERY close. actually, he'll probably finish today or tomorrow. what a champ he is.

just to clear up some miscommunication... i am NOT pregnant. :) morgan mentioned in one of her posts that "we spent an entire evening suggesting baby names for ben and whitney's unborn children" and then we had a few people asking both morgan and me if i was pregnant. sorry to disappoint, but no. ben and i were just arguing about baby names and it turned into a rousing family discussion. but for now, the fact that i'm not pregnant makes me very happy.

in the mean while, here's some pictures from our day trip on the heber creeper that we took in august with ben's family...

good times were had by all.
