Tyler having a good time in the back of the cop car.
Luckily, we were able to get to San Diego in time for Patrick and Michelle's wedding reception.
I insisted on having a gingerbread house this year, since I've never made a real one before.
Tyler thought it was pretty cool.
We got our first big sticking snowstorm, and Tyler just about laughed his head off watching the snow fall outside. Later, when it stopped snowing, we took him outside, and he trudged little paths all over our yard.
Somehow or another, he lost his glove, and it stayed put.
Tonight, I was baking sugar cookies, and I kept noticing that there were fewer finished cookies than I had thought. I would look at the table and think, "Hmm, weren't there just three cookies right here?" I noticed Tyler doing victory laps around the coffee table in the living room, so I figured the disappearing cookies were probably related. I decided to watch:
While my back was turned to the oven, he had been sneaking cookies! I blame Uncle Gordy.
You can see he was quite pleased with himself. But I would be too if I was this cute!
Here's the carnage.
We had a great week with Grandma and Grandpa Hinckley, and all our Hinckley relatives. I brought in a little Eatough spirit into our Thanksgiving with some Little Smokies and Pineapple-Bacon Wraps.Tyler got his first hair cut:
Mckay and I had lunch with some friends from when we lived there:
Here's some more pictures, I can't help adding a ton!
On the way home, we stopped at Wilson's Arch, just at sunset, and it was gorgeous:
That should do it for awhile for blogging, we've got to recover!
For all of you who tried to call me in the last few days, be assured I would have answered my phone, had it not been in between our walls. We condensed the whole story into this movie.
We had all our neighbors trying their hands at it, too, so take it from us, sticky mouse traps are the way to go!
Four random things about my husband/wife:
1. He likes to go fishing with his man friends on Provo River at midnight, or later. Apparently, this is the best time to go
a. While sleeping, she has attempted to look up a customer’s account info (what she did at work) on our alarm clock, told me there are ducks (or something) walking on our ceiling (“I heard them!”), and told me about her being a lumberjack.
2. He played the bass trombone in the BYU marching band.
a. She picks up any book in the house (and she’s read all of them except my Hugh Nibleys), opens to any random page, and starts reading. She finishes the book, then starts over and reads only up to where she started.
3. He has a permanent bump on his right shoulder.
a. Yeah? Well she has dents in her shins that only show up when she twists her legs a certain way.
4. His very first kiss and his wedding kiss were the same kind—just a peck.
a. When she was pregnant she went through a Kraft Mac & Cheese phase, comparing it to lobster ravioli at Macaroni Grill, even though she hated mac & cheese before then, and hates it today.

1. A&E Pride & Prejudice (And I did. I got this from the library once and played it every day for two weeks, just for the background noise.)
