Congrats to Tim, who passed his Exam P Actuary Test on Monday in Culver City. Now he is qualified and ready to send out resumes and get hired as an actuary (if you're unfamiliar with actuaries, think of Ben Stiller's character in Along Came Polly). Now let's not hope he gets hired by some company out in the midwest, since that's where most insurance companies are located.

Ellie had her first plane ride (that's her and Daddy in the Burbank airport)! Over President's Day Weekend, we all headed to Arizona to watch Shawna's little sister, Michelle, play in a soccer tournament out in Phoenix. So, courtesy of Grandma Lynette, we all boarded Southwest Airlines and flew out to the Valley of the Sun on that Friday night. A good time was had by all, and here are the pics to chronicle our trip.

So cousin Bum had an awesome celeb sighting up in Utah--Joel McHale, host of E!'s The Soup. There's not much more to be said, it's pretty dang awesome. Maybe not as cool as Shawna and I meeting Michael Cera, but pretty dang awesome nonetheless. OK, OK, it's equally awesome.

Yes, we're bad, and we didn't bring our camera, but this past Saturday we hung out with the Oblads in Los Angeles. Taylor Oblad and Andrew were mission buddies, going all the way back to the MTC, and he is currently attending law school at California Western and living with his wife, Mandy, and two sons, Derek and Dylan, down in San Diego. To make a long story short, he found us by Googling Andrew and finding our blog. So we're glad to have good friends relatively nearby and we hope to hang out with them again soon!

So Andrew got on a Text Twist kick the other day on Yahoo games, and it turned into a marathon affair. At first, he had insomnia, so he played all night without losing. Then it happened that both of his brothers, Tim and Jeff, came that weekend and they helped collaborate to keep it going. They finally lost late on a Sunday night while watching a Lakers game, but they took a pic to memorialize their high score. Here it is.
Oh, and they lost by not getting the word "snooty". Too bad.
