our temporary pet

we are dog sitting for our neighbors while they are in Hawaii.  this is their dog, his name is Jimmer.  he is a very sweet, well mannered dog, he loves the kids, and most of all loves me.  he follows me wherever i go and is always a willing buddy to sit next to.  some funny things about his visit are - when they brought him, the also brought his cage, which he slept in the first few nights, after that he decided he would rather not and has started to refuse to go in... so now he sleeps with us at the foot of our bed.  they also said he doesn't go on the sofa.. well the kids favorite thing to do is sit on the couch and call him up to cuddle.  we may have ruined their dog.  :)   either way, we are very happy to have him and will be quite sad when his family gets back.

last ski of the season

Yesterday Jared and I went night skiing.  It is nearing the end of March and we knew it would probably be the last time, but we wanted to test out my skis since they had a little tune up.  Tyson, Tim and Dave joined us for the fun.  Even though we had about 2 inches of snow fall in the valley, the slopes were still pretty icy.   We still had lots of fun, I got a few pointers and finally went on a blue run.  We went all together twice, it was a little scary, but really fun.  To finish the night I enjoyed some yummy chili from the Creekside Cafe, my favorite chili ever. It was a good day!

Russian Roulette

This is one of Jared's favorite things that i do.  It makes him smile everytime he gets in the car and notices that i am low on gas.  (INSERT SARCASM HERE)

I got home from the gym to find these two guys asleep in my bed.  I don't know if you can tell from the picture but Dallin is holding on to Jared's shirt.  I love how much the kids love their Dad.  :)

Growing up!

I just registered Carson for kindergarten!  Can you believe it, he is going to school!?  I know he is ready, i know he will love it, but suddenly all the feelings i had when Emma went are all coming back!  What if he doesn't make good friends, what if they are mean to him, what if he doesn't like his teacher, what if he gets homesick and the worst thought/realization of all... there is no going back to him being little... and that i hate!
