Snowy Days and Sick Days...

I think we had our last big round of snow before spring. The total was probably close to a foot up at our house. I had to gun it up the street from back of the neighborhood just to get the van out and take the boys to school and we fishtailed the whole way. It was fun...

We've all had a cold lately so to comfort ourselves we have been eating a LOT of conchas. The boys decorated the tops themselves and since Seth is the "most sick" he got to choose the color. I said no to blue but couldn't convince him to go with pink :)

My sister-in-law gave this sleeper/jumper to Sam for Christmas. Seth walked into the room and upon seeing Sam in it for the first time yelled, "What!! Why does Sam look so awesome! He is so cool." Now all y'all know how to be awesome!

Seth - Mom do you know where heaven is?
Me - No, not exactly although some people have a pretty good idea of where they think it is.
Seth - Well Mom, I'll tell you where heaven is behind gates! Now you know where heaven is...

Ah...taco bell, it's beef adjacent

When I read this report on CNN I wasn't super surprised...when I saw it on Colbert last week I died laughing.

Sometimes John goes to Taco Bell on campus when he forgets a lunch. He always swaps out the meat for potatoes in this burrito or he gets the Michael Black (a special hidden vegetarian menu item just at BYU perfected by a student named Michael Black who we actually met in Arlington over Christmas. John asked for his autograph and picture when he figured out he was THE actual Michael Black). I think he was glad he's been doing that after he saw this report :)
