Saucer Boy (aka Shane McConkey): Shane was a great freestyle skier who died this year (being from Colorado, I love skiing), so I had to honor him when I saw this awesome costume!

This is me and Doc Major after the surgery... I definitely do NOT remember taking this picture. I'm impressed that I was standing, it took a lot of anesthesia to get me down!

The drive to Utah is about 7 hrs... Depending on whether I'm driving, or if my Mom is! I took this pic with my iPhone, pretty nice huh?

Messing around pre-surgery... West Side! Gotta love the foot covers! And that hat... So hot.

Hey all,

After a long season and an operation, this month has been all about recovery. With my health coming back slowly, I am looking forward to a great off-season, and an even better 2010 racing season. For this month I decided to mix things up a little bit and instead of giving you my usual blog I've created a photo album.

The following pictures, or as I like to call them, works of art,  are somewhat of a photo album of my Tonsillechtomy and the Halloween contest I held while bed-ridden. Contest? What contest? Well, while recovering in bed I asked my Twitter followers to send in pictures of themselves in their Halloween costumes. These are some of the highlights. 

Enjoy and thanks to everyone who sent me a get well message.

Taylor
