Well, I finally got a chance to continue my last post from Glen Allen's birthday... here was the big surprise! He got his much wanted Siberian Husky puppy. I wanted to surprise Glen Allen with an actual puppy on his birthday but I decided it would be best to let him pick out the exact one he wanted. So I got him a book on huskies, a chew toy and a "certificate of choice" to allow him to pick out the one he wanted. The next day, we luckily found Bandit in El Mirage. It's hard to find breeders here in Arizona! He is a great little puppy with a lot of energy. The boys absolutely love him!

There are many things to look forward to each conference weekend... the much-needed uplifting messages, the break from fighting both boys during church, the break from teaching primary, the used-to-be girls night out during the priesthood session (which is now mom-and-kids night out), laying around in my pj's for two days, taking a nap between sessions, and did I mention getting a break from teaching primary, and spending time with the family. Saturday morning before the early session we headed up to the rolls (on the north end of Saguaro Lake) and took a little ride. The boys love the golf cart and of course Glen Allen was in heaven just like he is every time he gets a chance to ride!

One of the perks to Glen Allen's new job is the fact that Flagstaff is part of his area and he has to visit at least once a month. A few weeks ago, we decided to head up as a family and enjoy a nice little overnight getaway on the company (don't tell anyone)! :) We made the mistake of telling Glen David, on the drive up, that there was going to be snow up there. The whole time all he could think or talk about was the snow. He wanted to go snowboarding (like father, like son)! Luckily there was still a little snow on the ground up by Snow Bowl and the boys got their first taste of the cold white "stuff". Jaxon was a little unsure of it at first and Glen David didn't like the fact that Glen Allen kept throwing it at him but they both quickly got the hang of it. As you can see, we weren't really dressed appropriately (hence the capri's and flip flops) but we still seemed to have a good time.

You know that you are old when you wake up one day and realize that your 10-year high school reunion is right around the corner! Yup... it's true... this year is both mine and Glen Allen's 10 year reunion. I just found out that mine is in June and Glen Allen's is in October. You know what that means... it's time to kick it into high gear to get all this dang marriage/baby/lazy weight off! I feel soooo old...

Well after much procrastination and many frustrating days we have finally tackled (and succeeded) the art of "potty training". I don't know if it was more training for me and Glen Allen or for Glen David! This is a picture of Glen David with his bribery...a new sand toy from grandma and a BIG FAT ICEE!
