My SpiderGirl!!!

Instead of Spiderman we have a Spidergirl.  Phoebe lately has fallen in love with spiders.  We have to watch the spider scene in Harry Potter 2 nearly daily and she has also taken a loving to Charlotte's Web recently too.  Her favorite, however s this giant spider that some neighbors of ours have put out in their front yard for Halloween.  This spider is about 18 in tall & about 2 foot long.  It lights up with purple lights and moves.  Almost every night we have to go visit the "kucky (yucky) spider" as Phoebe calls it.  Once there she will sit by it & pet, kiss, & hug it, and tell it goodnight. Of all things to love, my girl picks one Gods nastiest creations. 

Fergy Firsts

Last week I got to attend the ribbon cutting of Cory's very first building that was all his design and construction.  It was for the Utah Career Center aka PipeWorks.  This is a school for union tradesmen such as plumbers, hvac&r workers, welders, & pipefitters. This is where they get their accreditations and advancement certifications.
Below is a drawing of the building from above & pictures of the front of the building during the day & evening.
This room is located in the front of the building & can be seen from outside too.  It houses all the plumbing and mechanical units.  It is lit with changing LED lights for a fun effect but it is a practical learning classroom for the student who attend the school too.
For the "ribbon" cutting the Pipe Tradesmen constructed a copper pipping gate, which they then cute with pipe cutters and it became a gate you could walk through to enter the building.
Here are some details I just wanted to note. One was the board with all those who contributed to the building.  We would hope they thanked Cory personally as we have seen at other buildings, but no such luck. The second was this cool table that was made out of functional pipes and glass. The glass table has 2 panels of inch thick glass on it & each panel of glass weighs 200 lbs.
This last picture was just something I saw that I thought was funny.  Note this is a tent with NO walls & yet they posted an exit sign....really can't you just exit the entirely open space from just about anywhere?!?!
I forgot to say that we attended, at the end of September, the first birthday of Jared Michael, the first of the great Fergy Baby Rush of '09.  I can't believe all these little ones are now turning one!
