Happy Birthday Dave!

Here are the answers. (If you haven’t written down your answers yet, find the questions here.) I’ve written them out below the video as well, with a few notes. Let me know your score by bedtime on Sunday! Dave did not make this easy for you. Ha ha.

1. red

2. apple sauce 

3. Caspar BabyPants*

4. dog 

5. Little Baby Bum*

6. monsters

7. right and left*

8. Dada (if you answered with more than one person and included Dada or some variation of Dad or Father, etc., give yourself 1 point. If you guessed only Dada or some variation of it, give yourself 2 points.)  

9. fire engine (He might have meant train engine, so if you said train, you can have a point.)

10. tractor

11. dog

12. helicopter

13. moon

14. watermelon

15. up and down

Thanks for playing!

*3. I was sure he would say “London Bridge.” Caspar BabyPants is a Seattle based musician that does kid’s music. Remember Presidents of the United States of America from the 90s? They did that goofy song about peaches and “Lump.” He was their lead singer.

5. Little Baby Bum is a Netflix and Youtube thing. It’s just animated nursery rhymes, basically. I thought he would say “trains” or “legos.”

7. I was sure he would say “outside” or “park.” “Right and left” is actually pretty funny, because when we go for walks and come to an intersection, Will asks him if he wants to go right or left. So he likes to go right and left, I guess.

Baby David has Learned to Laugh

Baby David Eldon

We might have sucked at actually providing updates, but we didn’t suck at making a baby. Little David Eldon Voorhees was born on October 9th at 6:14am at Ballard Swedish in Seattle, WA. He weighed 8lbs 7oz and was 20 inches long. Everyone is doing great and we are getting settled in at home just […]


So yeah, baby. That’s a thing. We’ll give you updates as they come, but for now all we really have to say is that momma and baby are both doing well. Joni is enjoying pregnancy, for the most part. I’ve got a few vlog-style videos recorded. I’ll see about editing those and getting them up. […]

The title might not sound that interesting, but I promise that this will be an enlightening video:

Birthday in Vegas – Day 3 (Sunday)

Missed Day 1? You’d better go read it: Birthday in Vegas – Day 1 (Friday) Missed Day 2? You’d better go read it: Birthday in Vegas – Day 2 (Saturday) And at last, we come to the final day of the Birthday in Vegas. Once again we hit up the breakfast buffet and ate ourselves […]

Birthday in Vegas – Day 2 (Saturday)

Missed Day 1? You’d better go read it: Birthday in Vegas – Day 1 (Friday) The next morning we got up and headed downstairs to the breakfast buffet. Oh, it was nice. They had made to order eggs, bacon, salad bar, and soft serve ice cream. We pigged out. And we filed the paperwork for […]

Birthday in Vegas – Day 1 (Friday)

Well, it’s been a while, eh? I wish I could say that I’ve been good about keeping up with the blog, but I really haven’t. Case in point: this post! Joni’s birthday was in the middle of February, and we went to Las Vegas with Dennis and Pam (Joni’s parents)! Did I blog about that […]
