quick update

*we have been in utah--me & the kids, since the 17th. and shawn, since the 21st. we were planning on going home yesterday but...

*shawn's grandpa died on thursday. the funeral is on wednesday. he was 93. he barely moved out of his house about a month ago--the house that he built about 60 or 70 years ago. he was an amazing man.

*i got a new sewing machine for christmas...but it is in eagle.

*my favorite thing said on christmas day was said by mikey when he was playing his new wii monster truck game: "holy cwap! i can't get dis baby to go."

*my other favorite thing was said by mikey when we were visiting my grandma and my aunt at the care center. he was walking behind (and somewhat stuck behind) my aunt kaffy (as he calls her) as she was pushing herself in her wheelchair into the room: "hey, move it or lose it lady."

*i love my hot pink toe nails from my pedicure i got last night with my mom, katie, annie, mickey and mandy.

*we have eaten out so much! and i have loved it!

*i miss alice!

going where no (wo)man has gone before...

so the other day i was in la-la land. really, i was occupied in my own little world...but i was in a public place. and i needed to powder my nose. apparently i was not even close to paying attention because when i entered the powder room and looked around, i realized there were porcelain fixtures that aren't normally in the ladies room. for a split second i thought i might be in a coed-bathroom (like on ally mcbeal) but then i realized a) i am in utah and 2) i have never really seen a coed bathroom. i was in the MENS bathroom (by the way, it is disgusting). fortunately, i was alone--at least i think so. i turned and darted out of there so fast that i almost knocked over the woman coming out of the ladies room. she looked confused and i burst out loud laughing...

how embarrassing. but, truthfully, this is not the first time i have done this...

what to do?

the kids were playing with the kids next door the other day. shawn was listening in. this is what he heard:

david (anna's age): "anna you have to play fair!"
anna: "well, i'm a girl. sometimes, it's not fair."

no, i don't think don imus lives here

on the way home from the ward party, we were greeted by the beautiful christmas lights in the round-about. however, i think maybe they should fix a few of the lights in the "happy holidays" light display.
