Dave's Secret Addiction

A box came in the mail a couple of weeks ago while Dave and I were both home. Our conversation went something like this....
J: "What's in the box."
D: "Just some movies I ordered."

I had known he had ordered some edited movies from a website that was going out of business. He had even emailed me for some of my favorites, so it wouldn't be all his.

J: "Oh, can I open it?"
D: "I think you better let me open it first."
a pause..
J: "How many movies did you order?"
D: "A few."
J: "I think I need to open the box."
D: "I'll just take it downstairs and you can see them later."

He finally did concede. So in all their glory, here are the 116+ movies. Now when am I going to find time to watch them all?

I fanned them out, I guess we can always use them as coasters.

The two big stacks.

And another great view! So if anyone gets an inkling to watch something edited, we just might have it.

It's Cold Outside

So we had a foot of snow come down, and it was the best ever. It packed so well that we were able to build an incredibly tall snow man. We had a wonderful few hours outside, and we're thankful we didn't have to go anywhere in the car.

Our tall Snow Man

Nathan trying out the snow. Apparently it was quite tasty, because Adam soon joined in. We had to explain to them that this would only be tolerated when it was new snow, and not something they could do the next day. Then one of my children asked if we'd ever tried yellow snow. The conversation quickly went downhill from there......

Rachael rolling the big body.

The pretty tree in our front yard. I was so excited to see snow. I've had very few white christmas's, and am thrilled we get another one this year. Although if I still lived in Oregon, I know I'd have one up there too, this year.

Singin' the Blues

We had our Annual Blue French Pancakes, on the morning of the BYU/UTAH game. The kids put to use their inherited cheerleading skills, and everyone showed their 'blue' attitudes. Yet, it all came to naught. The mighty cougars were conquered this year, and I think Utah's most valuable player was definitely Max Hall. Dave would completely agree with this statement. All in all we had a lot of fun, and many friends and family joined us to celebrate another winning season. Despite the last away game, it is still a wonderful time to be a Cougar--Rise and Shout!!
