What Brett has been working on: Readeo.com

February 28th, 2010

For a little over a year, Brett has been working on a website (www.readeo.com) that lets people read childrens books online together even if they live far away. The site uses video chat and digital books so that you can see and hear each other as you read. It’s perfect for grandparents with grandkids who live out of town, parents who travel a lot for business, and other situations where you’d want to read with little kids who don’t live close by. It would have been perfect when Noah and Logan lived in Ohio, and us in Utah.

There are guest and member accounts, and a family usually only needs one member account (guests are free). Choosing the right account for you might be a little confusing, so if you have questions about which to chose, send Brett an email and tell him to make it a little easier to understand 🙂 And if you check Readeo out and want an account (you will!), you can use the code “readeolaunch” to get a free month.

Merry Christmas!

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men.”

We went skiing for the first time this year (and Whittney’s first time ever) last week. It was the perfect day—sun, snow, and Saturday. Whittney did amazing for her first time, as you can see in this video.

Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas from the Brett and Whittney Crocketts

Whittney and I were too lazy busy to actually send out Christmas cards, but we thought we’d still wish you and yours a happy holidays anyway.

And thanks to Bryan for the photography!

I am working on a research project and would love if you could take two minutes and answer a quick 10-question survey.


By the way, I will let you know that Brett has been working on a post for almost two months now and it’s still not finished.  Point your fingers his direction.

Sliding Rock

August 8th, 2008

I surprised Brett last night with a little after-work adventure. The boy loves anything to do with the outdoors or getting dirty. He was giddy.

It had just rained so the water was a little dirty and quite cold.  Needless to say, I was not down with trying it.  We’ll go back in a couple weeks when it’s a little warmer and a little less muddy.

A Workday Conversation

July 21st, 2008

Brett Crockett:
Don’t worry Whittney- I’m not going to become a Border Patrol Agent. Although it would be fun to drive around with guns on 4wheelers and kick illegals out.

Brett Crockett:
It’s the Davy Crockett blood in me. An extension of the battle at the Alamo.

Whittney Crockett:
you aren’t even a descendant

Brett Crockett:
yes I am

Whittney Crockett:
no you aren’t

Brett Crockett:

Whittney Crockett:
no you aren’t
you are descended from his brother

Brett Crockett:
yes. but he and his brother had the same blood.

Whittney Crockett:
you still aren’t descended from him

Brett Crockett:
You’re just jealous.

Whittney Crockett:
You’re right
i am SOOOOOOOOOooo jealous

Happy Easter

Happy Easter

Spoken too soon

January 30th, 2008

B: “You’re really good at this whole snowshoeing thing Whittney–especially for your first time.”

ME: “If there’s one thing I have, it’s balance.”

…about 3 seconds later…

ME: “Woaaah!”

B: “Click.”

ME: “Stop laughing!!”
