Me: Hey Zachary...who's coming to visit next week?
Me: And who else? (thinking that he is going to say Poppy...my dad)
Z: Baby Sister
Me: Awwwww....that's right buddy! But she isn't going to visit...she is going to stay with us. Are you going to play nice with her when she comes?
Z: No (and then shakes his head from left to right)
Should I be scared??

This little man had quite the Christmas. Amongst the highlights were the Woody doll that Santa brought as well as the Buzz doll that Daddy gave him. It was a a quite day for us. Since baby girl will be joining us shortly we decided against any traveling and spend Christmas at home, just the three of us. And I just have to say that I LOVED it! As much as I hated being away from our families, spending the ENTIRE day in my jammies ROCKED!
And a special shout out to my bestie who actually reads this blog and sent me this very special gift! We have gotten use out of it already....Love ya Jennifer!

How delicious do these gems look??? We have a little man in our house who is quite fond of the Popsicle. I would love love love to get this from Williams Sonoma! (great Christmas idea...hint hint hint) They look so fun to make...and apparently only take 7-9 minutes!

For those of you who don't know what DI is...it is the equivalent to the Goodwill here in Utah. We hit the jackpot there this weekend. We went looking for some things and Zachary found himself down the toy aisle. He found the Shake and Go McQueen and Mater Cars. And there is NOTHING wrong with them. They are in nearly perfect condition! These things are usually $15 a piece at Target. We have looked at them several times. Zachary has some cousins that have these and he LOVES them. Anyway we bought them at Deseret Industries for $1 a pieces! He has gone to bed the last two nights clutching these bad boys. We have spent the last two afternoons racing them down the driveway. I love bargains!

Zachary was so excited to have his Poppy here! My dad had a little shadow the entire trip. Here is a picture of them being "fly hunters". For whatever reason we had a ton of flies in the house this past week and Zachary and my Dad would hunt them down (I swear Zachary's ears are not has big as they look in this picture).
We really really miss you guys! Thanks for making the trip out here!

We went to the Utah State Fair on Saturday. And thanks to a neighbor received free tickets....the BEST kind! Zachary talked all day the day before about going to see the cows, horses, chickens, etc....but the only thing that he would touch were the goats. He was scared out of his mind over the pigs. It was hilarious! There was an awesome Legos exhibit that he/Joe could have stayed
at all day. He was pretty tuckered out by the
time we left that he fell asleep in the wagon on the way back to the car. Joe was asked to judge the Dutch Oven Competition later that night, which he really enjoyed doing. We ate lots of fried food...including alligator. I think that we might go back this week for what we missed....fried twinkies, candy bars, and PB&J! Doesn't it all sound so delicious!

Zachary recently graduated to a big boy bed! We are still in the midst of trying to get ourselves into a routine and actually staying in bed after the lights go out. This is definitely a work in progress for both of us. Who knew that he would be so interested with books?! Especially at bedtime...wait a second...is that a stalling tactic?
I'm just glad that he is showing an interest in books. I remember my dad reading me stories before bedtime and then me reading him to sleep at bedtime. One of our favorites was the dictionary! I know...bunch of nerds!
And just on a side note....doesn't he look like he desperately needs a haircut?

Jared and Andi came up for the long holiday weekend. The boys were all loving the wagon. Everyday they would ask to get it out of the garage. One day Andi encouraged them to go for a walk around the block. So they all took off with Gage and Zachary inside the wagon. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous. How bad could it be? He was with his cousins. But guess what? It wasn't as bad as I thought. So here it is on record...Zachary's first trip around the block without any adult supervision!
Thanks for coming up guys!

I CAN'T EVEN STAND IT! Tonight is the BIG CONCERT that I have been waiting MONTHS AND MONTHS FOR!!!! I've been listening to Depeche Mode so much lately that my son may start singing their songs instead of Wheels on the Bus. This evening better come quick!

Joe get's the Best Daddy Award tonight. We had some friends over for a delicious Chinese dinner and during all of the chaos of kids running around, getting dinner ready, and enjoying company...Zachary's beloved McQueen car was lost in the shuffle. Joe suggested they get out the headlamps we use camping and look everywhere for the car. They looked under the couches and throughout Zachary's bedroom. And as you can tell from the hug that Joe is receiving...the car was found!

1. Have a mentioned before how Thankful I am to have such a handy husband?! Well I am! Yesterday afternoon our swamp cooler stopped working....have I mentioned how much I dislike swamp coolers? Well I do! Joe had it fixed in about 10 minutes. Yahoooo!!!!
2. I know that I have mentioned this several times before...but I am so very Thankful to live in such a great neighborhood! Everybody is so friendly, waves as they drive by, or stop to talk to you. Totally reminds me of my parents neighborhood back in California. Love it!

We arrived late in the night and it stopped raining long enough for us to get the tent set up. Then proceeded to rain off and on for the next day and night.
As you can see Zachary wasn't too happy about hiking in the rain. But he started to like it soon there after. He just wanted to get out and walk. I wasn't about to let that happen considering I had about 4 inches of thick canyon mud on the bottom of my shoes.
Token Family Picture
We hiked other areas including Moss Cave.
This is the view from Rainbow Ridge (I think that is what it was called).
'nother family pic...
This is Zachary smiling big cause he is out of the car.
He is so dang cute!
We had a blast and are itching to get back out again for more camping this summer before the restaurant opens and Joe is way busy again. We are thinking about Capital Reef next....

Then here where we had our tiny garden last year we planted a pumpkin, yellow crock-necked squash, zucchini, and more yellow squash. So I am wondering....did we take on too much? And of course I asked that question out loud last week and Joe just looked at me and said, "We? I think you mean you." So when this garden starts producing food I'm going to take all the credit for it!
On a side note, Joe fixed the sprinkler system for both the back and front yards. We knew that we had it but could not figure out why the ancient system wasn't working. I was so PROUD of him! Our neighbor came out after Joe fixed it and stated that he had not seen the sprinklers on in about 7 years. Yipee!
