Here's Ross talking about something large, I suppose.

I know... what the crap? I couldn't believe it either. We woke up a couple of weeks ago to THIS! It's only October. And this was the beginning of October too. I mean, every now and then we get a little snow in October. But this was A LOT! So... needless to say, we had to take advantage of it and let the kids have a little fun. Mason was so excited he could hardly stand it. So... after winning an argument about why he couldn't wear his football clothes out in the snow, they had a blast!
A lot of people get annoyed with the cold and the snow... but not me. I am a HUGE fan of the snow. I think it's exciting. I love everything about it. I'm sure it doesn't hurt that I have always been a big snow skiier. But seriously... that is one of the big reasons why I love living in Utah. There's something magical about cuddling up inside a warm house while you watch the snow flurries outside your window. Honestly ... I love it! So to all this I say...
BRING ON THE SNOW!

Mason. I thought I would give you a little update.
Don't get me wrong... we still have our days - he is every bit (if not more) obsessed than ever on his football days. He tries to fit as much football in on those days as he possibly can.
And if for some reason Daddy can't play - or is taking too long he will resort to playing with his little sister.
Hallie doesn't love football. In fact - I might go as far as to say she hates it. But when it comes to hangin' with her big brother - there isn't too much she wouldn't do.
Ya know it just goes to show ya that even though your kids fight like cats and dogs sometimes and you think that one day they might kill each other ... they really do love and look up to each other deep down. Just more of those moments that make motherhood worth while.
With every problem there are always better days ahead.
I can finally see the light!

Actually no .. I most definately cannot dance. But this post is long overdue. A couple of weeks ago, my friend, Leslie offered me a ticket to the "So You Think You Can Dance" concert. I was so dang excited I could hardly stand it. We had so much fun. I don't know if any of you watch this show - but I am HOOKED. I absolutely love it. It is one of my favorite shows. This season was amazing and the concert was even better! Seriously - if you are ever considering going to one - DO IT! It will without a doubt be worth it!

Sweet -n- Sassy
Hair Bows by Amy
Okay so I kinda got myself into a little business endeavor. I'm not sure whether it was a smart idea or not. I'll tell ya in a couple of days. Anyway... I need everybody's support! My good friend, Tina is having this huge, fun boutique this weekend, and I have decided to make hair bows and sell them there. So, cross your fingers for me that it will go well. If I don't make my millions, then pray that I at least break even so my husband doesn't lock me out of the house! ;) (just teasing - he is being extremely supportive) Here are pictures of just a few. (and when I say that I mean JUST A FEW) Let's just say my basement is FILLED with bows and I have hot glue coming out my ears!!
So, if any of you are looking for something fun to do this weekend - you need to stop by! Here are the details:
Simply Chic Boutique
Friday and Saturday, October 3rd & 4th
From 10 am until 8 pm
2200 South Orchard Drive
(Across from Dick's Market - the old "Family Fabrics" building)
Don't feel obligated to come by any means - but if you are in need of some hair bows or any other fun girly stuff, or just want to do some shopping - please stop by! I would love to chit chat! Otherwise - if you ever need any hair bows - you know who to call!!
Thank you - it was nice doing business with y'all! ;)
