Let it Snow X 3

Snow three days in a row--ROCK No work today because of it even, and school was cancelled. I drove to my mommies house to visit the twins and jump on their beds and yell "snowday!" but they were already out playing in it. Go figure.

There hasn't been much happening around here besides hustle and bustle (mostly bustle) for the holidays and hiking and web-developing (that one's dave's) however I did make a thing for the wall.

I call it "rippy bits"! No actually I don't because it's cut not ripped, but I am shameless when it comes to spongebob squarepants references.

We went to an Aquabats concert at the electric theater recently. It wasn't quite as fun as the one we went to in salt lake when then had concertgoers racing inflatable rafts crowd-surf style across the venue and back, but it was still fun. We dressed up in obscenely colorful tracksuits in honor of Ricky Fitness once again.

I went hiking with Maddie, Amanda, and Sara last Saturday to Camelback out by Gunlock. It was too cold for any froggies to be out, but the weather was beautiful. Perfect for shadow pictures and running around in the vortex.

The pictures

Que the cheesy montage music! Actually we may not have music, but cheesy and montage we can do. Since I'm so good (and by "good" I mean "bad") at updating there will be a lot of stuff you haven't seen!

Feb: For my b-day/valentines day we went to San Fransisco. Ate good sushi, wandered the pier, and china town, discovered art galleries and an awesome deli.

March: Family camping trip to Whitney Pockets...campfire, dad reading stories about our ancestors who settled the area, monkeying up rocks...good times.

Also in March: Maddie turned 4, thus making her eligible to say "I'm four, I sleep in a drawer".

July: Dave planned river rafting in Montana for our anniversary. "Duuuude, wetsuits!"

August: Spencer and Taylor got married! (see Laura's blog for pics)

Also in August: Hiking on Pine Valley, picking wild raspberries, conducting "secret trail" maintenance, getting our picture on the old boiler.

October: Marathon for me, rainy, not as fun as last time, but I got boston qualifying time which was my goal. (can't find my marathon pics, curse me and my orginizational skills)

Also October: Hawaii. Maddie made up a Hawaii song, we were beach bums for days, petted dolphins, had yummy crab, body surfed in the dark. Yesssssss.

Holidays I left out, just they're all "we ate some turkey and stuff" (sorry Chris, Shawn & munchkins, we missed you at Thanksgibbing though, and are excited to see you at Christmas!)

Oh! Hi blog. (and happy happy hair stuff)

So I know I haven't exactly been all updatey lately. Forgive me?

We're all good, Dave is still dying to quit SkyWest to do freelance full time. He finished his bachelor's since last I wrote (more than a year ago!? that's sad). But, we want to squeeze in a trip to Ukraine (his mission area) before he gives up his flight benefits (P.S. my passport came yesterday). I'm still guiding hikes. It's still fun. Maddie still loves playing with her friends at pre-school more than helping me clean house. Figures.

A while ago I got clip in color extensions for my hair. They're human hair so they can be curled or straightened along with my own. They were relatively cheap considering that having my own hair colored or having extensions weaved in would cost around $75-$100 and only last a few weeks. The clips are easy to put in and can be taken out at night. Probably the best thing about them is that I can put in a different color every day if I want without the trouble of bleaching my dark hair to ruination.

I got mine from this site:, but I have also seen similar extensions on ebay. A search for "color extension clips" should yield some good finds.
