The title of this post has absolutely nothing to do with the contents that will soon fill this page. It has to do with my dear friend/college roommate Russanne who has been facebooking me, telling me to update my blog. I finally decided to get on it and therefore am dedicating this blog post to her. The title refers to on of the sweetest things she's ever said to me. We were about to go to the gym and my attire of choice was, yes indeed, gauchos. She knocked some sense into me by asking that blog title question, "Gauchos... Seriously?" To this day I have not worn any such pants, but in my defense I am pretty sure they were still sorta kinda fashionable. Anyway, holla to Rusty for getting me to blog yo. I hope to see a blog post dedicated to me in the near blogging future.

Now....... PICTURES!!!

What's been going on in the badonkatonkas lives???

Grandchild number 9 was introduced to the Madsen clan! There's Dex with his new buddy Sullivan! I can not tell you how many times he's tried to eat him.

We moved out of our condo. Ahhh Shadow Ridge will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Funny story. Our first week as a married couple we went grocery shopping as any newlywed would do. Well I was acting "healthy" and wanted to get veggie burgers. Yeah, 2 and a half years later and they were still in the freezer, unopened. Ahhh Boca burgers will always hold a special place in our hearts. But not in our bellies.

Over the summer we took in a Bees game. Or is it Buzz? Well it definitely was baseball. Or was it soccer??

This guy turned 7 months old!! Got his two bottom teeth as a present!

Took a trip to the zoo.

Madsen cousins measuring up!

We took a vacay with Devon's fam to Newport Beach. I think Dex is a Californian at heart. He loved the water.

He also loved the sand as you can see from the above pic. Pretty sure he ate his weight in it.

Getting all the Tonks grandkids together. Tysen sure was enjoying himself... That was probably right after Dex tried to eat him. Boys will be boys!

There we go. Put the babes on opposite sides. All smiles!

Family picture at the family reunion! I think Devon was pinching Dexters leg that's why his face is like that. Mean lil' Devy.

Grandpa Ted putting Dex in a trance with his crackly tongue. Works everytime.

He insists on pulling my hair but doesn't realize it'll get tangled up in his hands. Ahhh!

Dexter just climbing all over Sebey.

8 months old! (in case you can't read the sign)

The next two pics show my sharp dressed men in all their glory.

Told ya. Glorious. You want more... well check out this_new_blog. You won't be disappointed. Unless you hate streetlight leather jackets (yes, you bet that's real leatha.)

Dex taking a bath. Innocent enough.

Oh no..... He's concocting an evil plan!!!

Bwahahahaha!! Mad scientist DEX!

Dexter's 'ghoul' friend brough him a Halloween present. It was mostly filled with Hershey's kisses that he almost swallowed whole- wrapper included.

Trying to eat the lights. Look at those baby blues!!

And possibly the most exciting goings ons in the badonkatonkas lives.... We're (almost) homeowners!!! Found a sweet piece o' property out in Daybreak so consider this a goodbye to all the rest of Utah as we will be too busy canoeing on the lake and releasing ladybugs. Jk, ya'all can come visit! But I don't think you can canoe on the lake unless accompanied by a local resident.

Bleaaerrgghh.... And that's our lives in a nutshell! I know I am terrible at keeping up with this blog and when I finally do get around to posting something, it usually takes me three days since I have to sit and upload pictures. So I've decided that I will try and post a picture a day (well, a week) because, let's face it, I have a lot of cute pics! I mean, have you seen our son?!?

Hope that was enjoyable for you Russanne! If blogging like this is wrong, then I don't wanna be right!! (That's another fabulous quote by Rusty that I semi-changed to apply to blogging. I'd explain but I'm tired so another time kids... another time)
