Now on deck: Junior Brown!

Big news in the Brown household: We'll soon be welcoming a new Baylor Bear cub! Yep - Bethany is pregnant!

Junior Brown (as we are calling him/her for now) is about eight weeks along, and due June 23. The doctor says everything looks great, and other than a bit of nausea, Mother is doing great too.

Orbit asked us to note that "Meow is very excited."

We're excited too, and just wanted to share the news!

Yes, we dressed up for Halloween

Happy belated Halloween! For the last six months or so, Bethany worked to create costumes for both of us from scratch, and she finished just in time for us to be dressed up while we sat on our porch and handed out candy. I think Bethany did an awesome job making our costumes -- thank you, dear wife!!

Here we are -- Han Solo:

and Princess Leia:

We had probably about 30 kids come by last night, about the same number as last year. The most popular costume for boys seemed to be skeletons, while tops for the girls were princesses. Our favorite costume was a little boy who looked to be about three years old and was dressed as Zorro, complete with hat, eye mask, cape and sword.

So now that Halloween is over, it's time for Homecoming! Sic 'em, Bears!
