An Early Christmas

You are probably currently wiping your glasses clean or possibly taking a double or even a triple take at your screen. As you are reading this, you probably don't even believe your eyes and don't know what to do with this new Babcock blogging material on your computer screen. My suggestion: read on!

The last five months since I last updated my blog have been very busy with many great things. I went on a 4,521 mile road trip with Justin & Andrew up to Canada and visited most of the National Parks along the way (needs a separate blog to do the trip justice), I got a new church calling as Stake Executive Secretary, I finally got out of the tax world and have begin stumbling around in the corporate valuation world, and I have continued to date Ali Swenson.

It is true that by July 16, the last time I updated my blog, I had been dating Ali for a couple of months, but I didn't know at that time whether or not our relationship was at the "have I made your blog" level yet. So, in an effort to error on the side of not freaking her out and keeping her around longer, I decided to just throw in a group picture, but not say anything about it. Well, here we are five months since my last blog entry and things are going strong. So now it is official. Ali and I have progressed our relationship to the blog level!

Now instead of posting a picture I decided to take it even a step further and post a video! This video was actually suppose to be part of her Christmas present, but after making it, I couldn't wait until Christmas to give it to her. So Christmas has come early this year. Now that she has seen it, I would like to share it with all of you. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. To that I ask, how many words is a picture video worth? Watch and find out for yourselves.

That is a great video. You guys MUST be happy--I've never seen two people jump up in the air that often!! (you got some awesome pictures of that!)

And, I'm sure the County of Los Angeles would be happy to know that I just dedicated 9 minutes of my workday to your blog. Thank you taxpayers, well worth it!!

Great video Brian. A couple comments:

-Love the Mr. Incredible and Super Woman costumes.
-I missed out on the jumping pictures during my bachelor days and now I'm probably to old to get away with it.
-Did you wear sunscreen, because you are outside a lot?
-You must now burn that Red Sox hat if you haven't already!

Can't wait to see you.

You are in trouble! I saw pictures of St. George and Zions in that video and you didn't call!!! What a cute video . . . I was sure there would be a little surprise for her at the end . . . :) We're glad you found such a cute girl, and we hope she sticks around!

Mike and Kelly already said it, but I hope most of those pictures were taken prior to Oct. You were wearing your RedSox hat in every one.

Very cool the way you proposed.

Brain, pleased to see you across the chapel here in NYC with my great friend Ali on your arm. In case you didn't know, getting engaged is definitely a reason to update the 'ole blog. Since you guys ran out before I could meet you, you owe me the blog update. I want your side of the story too!

Brian Babcock -- long time, no see. I hope you're doing well. I ran across your blog quite randomly (friend of a friend's blog), but it's good to see what you're up to. I just got married this past summer and am living in Richmond, Virginia (really random, I know). Andrea is a reporter for a TV station in Florida but is thinking of moving to Washington, D.C. soon. Anyway -- take care!

Kelly said...

Hi Brian! It is Kelly Evers-Thompson-Bradonski, ummm your friend from Littleton. I saw your blog on Mark and Jenny's and had to say hi! Congrats big time on the engagement! That is so exciting! Well, hopefully we will see you out there in Cali one of these days!
