happy birthday tubby goo

Today my boy turned three years old. He sang the Birthday song with everyone until they got to part where they said his name. At that pont I think he realized he was the birthday boy. It was very cute and he was very proud of himself for blowing out the candles. My family all came and it was such fun having a reason to get together. By the end of the day he was pooped and conked out on the couch with Scott. I love my Adam and I am so grateful to have him in my life. He may be a stinker and the worst eater I have ever met, but boy, does he melt my heart. Happy Birthday Tubby!

we've moved!!!!!!

AND I also know why all the rain forests are disappearing.

So we have finally sold our home in Washington (for about $40,000 less than what it was worth six months ago - you gotta love the housing market). It closes on Tuesday and we are so thrilled to not have that hanging over heads any more. Luckily about the time we went into an agreement for our Washington house we found the perfect house here in Utah. As you can see from the pictures it isn't glamorous or super amazing - but it is great for us. The biggest selling point - the detached two-car garage in the back for Scott's workshop. This means that I can actually park in the attached garage without having the dodge tools and storage and Scott can have the space he has always dreamed of. Yipeeee! Plus, I actually have a beautiful, decent sized kitchen now (something I lacked in the WA house). We are thrilled. We actually don't close on this house here until the 29th, but because we were homeless this month they let us rent in until we close.

Okay, so my big discovery about the rain forest! Well, Scott's company paid for a moving company to pack and move us (so great, by the way) and holy cow, I am pretty sure most of a rare Brazilian rain forest is sitting on the side of my house. Between the boxes and paper I am thinking Al Gore may want to start pointing the whole environmental thing toward the rich who use moving companies (and go on cruises, which use amazing amounts of fuel. So much so, that by you driving a "green" car isn't going to make a drop of difference - little political note there. I think Al Gore is an idiot and Nobel just lost all credibility with me).

Anyway, with all that said - we are thrilled be here and never have I seen a more beautiful November. No offense to my Washington friends, but good riddance.

So, we have moved into our home and don't have the internet set up yet. There will be more fun, informative, and entertaining blogs to come.

"...and your little dog too!"

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! It is such fun having kids that are old enough to enjoy Halloween yet young enough to not notice that I have eaten half of their candy after they have gone to bed. So we went from a Tooth Fairy and Chicken (Halloween 2006 costumes) to a black-themed costume year; namely a Witch, Skeleton, and the cutest Lady Bug I have ever seen. The kids had a blast. I think Adam tripped only two or three dozen times at the most - a new record for the world's clutziest child (other than me, but I am not a child). We had our traditional pizza dinner beforehand and then it was off to the festivities. It was a fun night.
