YES! Loads of stress off!

This was the last big test hopefully of my life. I am so glad I am not taking it again. I didn't do it all by my self though, I have a great wife and kids that helped me through it, and even more importantly the Holy Ghost to guide me and help me remember random facts.

First crazy: Matt turned 30 two days ago! That is crazy. How does it feel to be 30 years old Matt? It must not feel too good because a week before his birthday he matter-of-factly told me he discovered a hair growing in one of his ears...well, if it puts you at ease at all Matt, my mother just said that it seems like the worst things don't start happening until after 50 so you you still have some "crazy good years yet." I sure hope you have a crazy good 30th year:)

I designed this cool mouse pad for Matt on Shutterfly using pictures he took of Carlee and Dani's feet and hands.

I got him some other cool stuff...

What a NERD

Second crazy: the snow storm! I am in shock how much snow fell in one night. WOWee. Now this is crazy.

These are the garbage cans in the drive way of apartments we live in

This is a car

This use to be our snowman

Third crazy: I cut my hair off...just like Emma Watson. Liberation indeed. I know some of you may not like it but I DO so it doesn't matter and I guarantee that any woman with long hair who cut it short would marvel at the convenience and ease of super short hair. LOVE IT.

Fourth crazy: How fun it was to have my sister Cyrie come stay with us for the weekend after a work conference in Philly.

Attending the MET

Dining out

Painting our nails hot pink with white hearts for Valentine's Day

Diapering Dani

We also went to the NYC Aquarium in Brooklyn, check out Cyrie's blog for more photos.

Fifth crazy: Carlee painting her cardboard fort...and herself.

Enough craziness already.

Carlee Gettin' Down

Sweet moves girlfriend!

Dani and Carlee's Cute Faces

This is Carlee's "no no" face. When I get upset at her, she hits me with this look and shakes her finger at me and it is hard to stay mad, in fact usually I have to hide my face in my hands so she can't see me while I laugh. It all started with the "Five little monkeys jumpin' on the bed" song, my action for when "Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said, 'No more monkeys jumpin on the bed'" was to look stern as she is in this picture and shake my finger.

Julee's face

This is what Julee looks like when we are having fun:

Good thing we don't have fun very often.
Just kidding...

Cool Picture

I just stumbled upon this picture that I have never seen before and am taken back by what an awesome picture it is. Thought I would share it with you.

What We Did for Two Weeks in Oregon

Enjoyed the view of the magnificent mountains (view from the airplane)

Went night skiing (Matt and I snowboarded)at Timberline and had some yummy hot chocolate at the lodge afterwords

Enjoyed Bonnie the dog

Had a blast snowshoeing in the dry fluffy snow near Mt. Hood and drinking hot chocolate again mid way through the hike

Saw Nate for the first time in a long time.

Played games

Lounged around on the couch

Had fun painting our nails with the nail art kit Carlee got in her stocking.

Hung out with Cooper around Granny and Grandpa's gumball machine.

Spent time with Aunt Molly

Not to mention some shopping, eating yummy food, studying...and more studying. It was a great time, thank you SO MUCH Carol and Mike for having us!!!
