do you suppose she has been watching too much "hairspray" lately

yesterday as we were driving by glenwood springs swimming pool, anna pipes up with this question:

"mom, is that pool integrated?"

moab--here we come...

we are off to moab today. shawn is running in the half marathon on saturday. i am a bit excited. he has only raced once (in midvale's harvest days' 5k run) since we have been together. he has trained hard and i can't wait to see him run--go shawn!!

as a side note: many of you may know that i hate running and thus mostly hate runners. shawn is the exception probably because i am married to him.

ho to wid a bik

by mikey

you git yur bik and git on the bik.

put yur fet on the peduls.

strt widn the bik.

if i hadn't fought for mikey to get the writing (they were teaching writing in the afternoons and he is only half-day so he missed out on the writing the first half of the school year--i fought hard for a schedule change and i got it--he was the only half-day kinder in his class) then i would never have this little gem.

how much is that doggie in the window...

mikey's primary teacher's golden retrievers (noah & ally) had pups on superbowl sunday. we went to see them last night and fell in love...

she had seven--6 boys and one girl

i think one would really blend into our family well...except alice might not be too appreciative.

they are only four weeks old...i have some time to think about it. i suppose ultimately it will be up to alice.

for baby natalie

you can see the little darling in the dress here

the whole dress (please do not notice the "A" and "N" carved into my table...someone in my family has a carving problem).

the back of the dress. mickey had to change it a bit to get it to fit better, and she did a great job! that's what you get when you live 385 miles away.

the front...i love the collar

the lace of the dress...
