Meet our first pet. His name is Sugar. He is 6 and a half years old. We inherited him from a family in our ward who is moving to Florida where it is too hot for bunnies. He came with an outdoor hutch and has been an outdoor pet from the beginning. We are hoping that because he is outdoors we won't have an allergy problem. The kids absolutely love having a pet. The fun thing about our bunny is that he loves to go on walks in his very own stroller. The kids have loved feeling how soft he is and love giving him carrots. He will probably die someday of a carrot overdose. Anyway, so far we have really enjoyed having sugar and hope he is with us for a long time.

Lost Final Season Premier

I know, I know. It is just a TV show, but it is such a good TV show. We went to the Lost season premier at our friend Todd's house. We made the "jughead" out of a 2 liter bottle of Root Beer, Matt printed off the NAMASTE papers and I decorated wing containers to be from Mr. Cluck's.
We had fun. We are sad that it is the final season and anxious to see where it all ends up. My thoughts for the season so far is: So far so good.

I'm a Big Kid Now!

So my honey bunches of oats turned 30 a few weeks ago. He was very excited to get some Transformer cuff links from his Mom. He even got to wear them to Church on his birthday. He also got a set of magnets called ball of whacks from his Mom that the kids (especially Larke) just cannot get enough of. I was pretty excited that I found him a long sleeve waffle shirt that had a symbol on that looks like the crest of Albania. It would have been a better day for me had Gideon not been throwing up all day. Matt however got to go to church with just Eden and actually heard the talks and everything. He came home very edified. I should have wrapped up Gideon and put him in the pile of presents. I made him steak and shrimp for dinner, yum and we had birthday cookies. I think more than anything we are both relieved that he in now 30. Matt because he doesn't want to be considered "young" in the work place and me because he has to stop saying that I'm in my 30's and he's in his 20's. Thank goodness that is over. Only 8 and 3/4 years until he says that for our 30's and 40's. I can't wait.
