A mouth full of cute teeth!
With a mouth full of teeth,...Ethan now loves crackers!
I have to mention the bizzare experience we had at the restaruant though. We were told by many locals that we should go to Legal Tender for dinner. We arrived and waited 10 minutes before anyone came to the hostest station. It was funny, Mitch actually had to go find someone. Then,....we sat at our table for 15 minutes before the waitress even came around. Bizzare, I tell ya! She promptly asked us what we wanted. No hello, no introduction,...nothing. She was quickly annoyed when we had questions and didn't know exactly what we wanted being tourists and all. We just had to laugh....it was as if only the locals knew how to behave at this place. It reminded me of the Seinfeld episode with the soup nazi! I was waiting to hear them say..."NO steak for you!" Finally, we got our food, which was yummy except for the odd tasting gravy. We never saw our waitress after our food came which was unfortunate since our water ran out after our trip to the salad bar. To make matters even more outragous Marty had to ask this kid (probably a busboy) for a box 3 times! By this time I guess the locals were watching and Marty announced, "If anyone needs anything,..let me know!" Luckily,...I was out in the parking lot with the kids by then so I didn't have to witness it! Sorry...that was a long tangent, but it was quite funny!
We had a great time, mostly because we were together as a family which has been hard to do lately since Marty has been so busy! Thanks honey, for the fun weekend in Wyoming!

Here's how this "Tag" works. List 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, 3 surprising facts about yourself. Then tag 3 people at the end of your post.OK, here we go!
-Marty, Ethan & Nyah
-Forgetting special memories I have of my mom.
-Something happening to my babies
3 Goals (short term):
- Work out better this week
-Get on top of the Laundry (oh wait,...that will never happen)
-Kiss and hug my family more!
3 Current Obsessions:
-Decorating (wanting to do it all the time, but staying on a budget!)
-Weight Loss (still working on my goal to lose 100 lbs by the New Year)
-Taking pictures of my babies
3 Surprising Facts:
- I never took drivers ed....Watch OUT everyone! (No really,...When I moved from New York I had a license which allowed me to drive until 9 pm. You only had to take a drivers test and a written test to get it. When I moved to Utah it transferred over and I avoided the whole drivers ed thing. Sorry Colie and Jodes,... you didn't get so lucky.
-I HATE anything melon....Watermelon, Honeydew, Cantaloupe.
-I kissed Marty first! Yikes....don't tell Nyah her mommy did that!
I tag Lora, Hillary, and Malia!
Nyah can now say: ma-ma, da-da, blue, Jesus, hi, and ball! I was glad to capture her saying "ball" on this video. She loves her ball! Notice at the end how she gives the grumpy face. Hilarious! She started doing that after I would sing: "No more monkeys jumping on the bed," with a stern face shaking my finger. I guess we need to be careful about what we say and do (even facial expressions) around our little ones.
Ethan has been army crawling and crawling backwards for a couple of months now. It wasn't until Saturday night that he took his first crawling steps forward! Now, he is a pro. He is especially good when you entice him with anything electronic,....thus the laptop on the floor! He loves that thing!
