Lake Powell

It had been a couple years and It was nice to be back. The Arizona sun was brutal, but we loved every second. Moe loved swimming and sleeping in the boat. Miles loved driving the boat, jumping off the boat, swimming, and tubing. Jed loved not working, and I loved watching my kids have fun. Thanks grandma Jackie and grandpa joe for a fun trip.

I guess he won the tour de france a few times or something,  no biggie.

The chicken massacre took place yesterday afternoon.  Don't let his deceiving good looks and charm fool you.  He is a cold hearted murderer.  Our next door neighbors had 3 youngling chickens, that they had been raising from chicks for the past couple months.  Bogart took them out 3 for 3.  It was not a pretty sight.  Luckily our neighbors are super nice and forgiving.

This is my dad ( Grandpa Bill)

Did I mention Miles cut his hair?
Well, he did!!
He had told me he was going to wrap a present(which explains the scissors).
He returned with the front and top chopped. He said " Look Mom, now you can see my beautiful eyes"!
Yes, Yes, I can.
After I told him we would have to cut the rest off, he cried and cried. Pretty much all morning. His saddest moment was when he thought he was going to look like grandpa bill.

Disney Land

Jed had a job in Anaheim a few weeks back and he ended up staying at the Disney Land Hotel. We couldn't pass up a last minute trip to visit Mickey and friends. My mom, Miles and I hopped on a plane and spent 3 lovely warm days in California. I courageously bought 3 day hopper passes. Luckily the weather was fabulous and there were no crowds ( the first 2 days anyway). Poor Jed was stuck inside all day. We were able to see him during a 45 min. dinner break.

side note: while writing this post and drinking hot chocolate, I found a little green floatie in my hot chocolate which resembles a small piece of basil.... kind of nasty! That reminded me, the other day while at my mother's house in logan, I was eating a bowl a cereal for breakfast. I finished the cereal, looked down and saw a multitude of little brown bugs floating in the milk. After throwing up a little in my mouth, I started complaining to my mother. My darling little sister Jessey pipes up " oh, sorry, I forgot to throw that box away"........................ ( long pause with a glare)............not one of my finest moments. Just thought I would share!

Anyway, back to Disney. We were able to spend lots of time with Mickey and Goofy and Pluto because there was no one else there to demand their attention. Miles' favorites were It's a small world, the Rockets, Pluto, and chatting with people in line with us. Friendly little chap that miles is.

Tis the Season

This year will be our first year spending Christmas at home. I thought it was time we started our own family traditions. I stole this new tradition from my darling friend Julianne. It is called Tis the Season, and it goes like this... First day of December, we have a fancy dinner. Ours consisted of Roast, red potatoes, green beans, baguette, and of course some sparkling juice. Miles opened two gifts. Christmas jammies and a blanket ( handcrafted by yours truely), to be enjoyed all Christmas season. Jed shared the christmas story complete with video. We picked out our tree at the local tree stop, and finished up the night decorating and listening to christmas tunes. It was a lovely night. Thanks Juli for sharing your tradition. I am open to more suggestions. If you have any, please share!
