Bottoms up

It might as well be called "drink this if you want to make it to St. George alive tonight".

President's Day in PC

1 weekend. No kids. Park City, UT. It was great. We slept in, ate way too much, shopped, boarded, slept some more, watched the Olympics, and hung out with good friends. Thanks Ed & Diane for watching the boys! And thanks Mom & Dad for the condo!

A view from the condo. It looks so calm.

At least Eric is paying attention.

Happy Valentines Day!

A while ago I had to go digging in our "storage unit/garage". I was looking for winter clothes to wear to Park City over President's day weekend. Luckily, I found everything I need fairly quickly, but digging through everything made me miss my stuff. It's gonna be like Christmas morning when I finally get to open all of these boxes again.

Super bowl Salad

I think it needs to be said that Eric ordered a cobb salad for his main course on super bowl Sunday. Hot wings? No. Ribs? No. Burger? No. A cobb salad. This is how much he likes a good cobb. So, a cobb salad we made.

How ironic it is that just the night before we were playing the Not-So-Newlywed game at Sarah's Valentine's party and when asked what Eric's catch phrase is I answered, "I'm a Man!". He got this from some football coach who kept repeating it in an interview, I'm a man! So he uses it when I ask him to rotate the laundry or make the bed or get up from the couch - "but don't you see, I'm A MAN!" A MAN WHO ORDERS COBB SALADS.

Lucy Jean is 1

Anne brought Lucy down for a quick visit this week - just in time to celebrate her 1st birthday (this saturday). She is our miracle baby and has come such a long way. I think she is the most chill one year old I have ever met. She sure didn't start out that way!
Happy Birthday LUCY!

Pretend City

I am thinking I will just post the few pictures I have from our visit and leave it at that.

The lady in the back totally ruined this for me....

Ok, the video is fixed now from the previous post. For some reason it was set as private. It's really just to prove that they sing the song all. day. long.

It all started with his Halloween costume

I don't need to remind you that my kids are hooked on legos. OBsessed is more like it. Cohen has moved on from his Lego Spongebob obsession to Toy Story and Indiana. The problem is that Indiana has accessories. Hat, sword, gun, satchel - he's decked out, and if one part goes missing we are in trouble. I am woken up every morning by Cohen saying this - "Mom, I can't find my Indiana Jones guy, he's in my bed, go find him." So, last night Ed & Diane took the boys to Target to pick out a toy. I think they were feeling bad that they had been sick for a few days - but I guess Grandparents never need a reason. Well, they came home with these....

....notice the age requirement for these things (7-14). Translation: Ed and I put most of Ethan's together while Ethan put Cohen's together for him. The entire time we were building the Temple of Doom the boys were singing/humming the Indiana theme song. Duh duh duh duhhhh, duh duh duhhhhh... duh duh duhhhh duhhhhhhh, duh duh duh duH dUH. I didn't get it on tape last night but I did this morning when I came downstairs and caught them playing with their new loot. I hear it at least 135 times a day.


Why does this make me giddy? It came in the mail yesterday and just opening it made me happy. Now...what to make?
