As Promised

Well, I actually followed through on a threat (a concept I should apply more in my parenting) and I went private. Because the most annoying thing about private blogs, in my opinion, is the fact that I can't tell when they have been updated I am going to keep this blog and let you all know when I have posted something on my new private blog. You can visit our new place in cyberspace by clicking here.

Hope to see you there soon. Oh, and if you are one of those who happen to check my blog even less often than I post (which is really saying something!) and you missed the invite to the new blog just leave your email in a comment and I promise to send you and invite, eventually ;)

The Privacy Battle Lost

So, I am going private. Not by choice, personally I am not a fan of private blogs but the hubby insists. (Can you tell I am less than thrilled about this?) I figure if I let him win this than maybe I can win the more important argument, like what color to paint our bedroom walls.

Anyhow, if you like to visit my blog. Or even if you don't really like it but you do it because sometimes you get bored and visiting my blog beats cleaning out your dog's earwax then leave me a comment with your email and I will see to it that you get an invite.

To shower or not to shower

On most days I try to shower before my kids get up. It saves a whole lot of trouble. This week however I have been battling a bad cold and have taken advantage of every possible sleeping moment. The result, I have to shower whilst my kids run a muck. The first day I got out of the shower I found that Oliver had painted his fingernails a lovely shade of pink. Fortunately all the nail polish was contained on one unimportant blanket, whew. Day two was a combined effort from both kids as they got out a new roll of toilet paper and unrolled the entire thing throughout every room in the upstairs. Day three, I just didn't shower. Somedays a little stench is justified.

My latest

I did this cake for my cousin who was throwing a 1920's themed party. She wanted peacock feathers, yikes! I was pretty happy with the ones I managed to invent though.


We went up the canyon for a little snowshoeing this winter. In reality the snow was pretty packed and the snowshoes probably weren't necessary but we left them on anyway, it is all about the experience, right? We had some technical difficulties as we tried to pull Oliver in the sled (hiking with him can be somewhat torturous as he has to stop and examine absolutely everything). It took us a while to convince him to ride in the sled in the first place because there were so many other things to check out and even then it only worked really well on flat or uphill terrain. As soon as we hit a downhill section he and his sled would overtake us. In the end we spent most of the time towing he and Ruby up the hill and then letting them sled back down. It was fun though and so great to get out above the nasty inversion. I never realized how nasty Utah can be in the winter, it really makes me miss Colorado.
