Snow, Snow, Snow

The kids were super excited about the snow last Saturday. We played outside for hours with my nieces and nephews. Caden really likes the snow. He kept tripping and falling, and while he waited for someone to help him up, he would just sit patiently and eat the snow. We also tried out the dog sled thing again. This year it turned out much safer than last and all the kids had a good time. Do you like the big, red, whelt on Ky's chin? Brent made up a game called 'burrito'. He would roll the kids up really tight in a blanket and then pull the blanket up, unrolling them very quickly. Well, Kyla caught a little air while unrolling and landed chin first. Brent's not allowed to make up games anymore.

Old Man!!

Okay so this post is a little delayed, but oh well. So Brent turned the big 30 last friday. He handled it very gracefully. His parents took us to Texas Roadhouse where he had to sit on the birthday saddle (how embarrassing).

After that, on the way home, we decided to stop and see the christmas lights at willard bay. It was actually pretty fun. There was a wagon ride, hot cocoa, and Santa (wahoo, that saves me a trip to the mall). The kids really enjoyed it (although santa was wearing kind of a strange outfit).

So that was our Happy Birthday to Brent. We also went to the USU v. BYU game saturday. The game turned out to be doubly dissapointing, USU lost, and on the way home we stopped to eat dinner at Pei Wei, which I normally love, but made me incredibly sick that night and the next day. So that was our week in review. I'm now onto finishing my christmas shopping. Anyone have any good ideas for: a 2 year old boy, an older sister, and a father-in-law. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
