3 Stages of a Man's Life

"There are three stages of a man's life: He believes in Santa Claus, he doesn't believe in Santa Claus, he is Santa Claus." ~ Author Unknown

Tonight was so much fun. Zade has been talking about the orange truck from sam's club for months now. I don't know if he had half as much fun as I did though. It doesn't get any better than this. I have never seen him so excited. He was shaking from excitement. I've said it before and i'll say it again, I absolutely love being a dad.

Christmas Village

On about 24th street and Wall avenue every year they
do a little Christmas Village. We decided to get out of the
house and go see all the little buildings that were decorated.
It was freezing cold but we brought some handwarmers and
saw some kids singing Christmas songs and just had a great
time. There has been so much crap going on around me,
this is the first time it has felt like Christmas this year.
It was great. We ended the night off with my favorite
place to eat. Cafe rio. Zade calls it the Quesadilla place.

Potty Training

Potty Training has been going great.

We are on day six now of really committing to potty training zade. He is actually pretty much potty trained now and doing great. This photo was taken a few days ago and I think it really captured the moment. If you notice april has a red bottle in her hand from cleaning the carpet where Zade had urinated in two different spots to stick it to us. then was refusing to put on his underwear. Notice the arch in his back in defiance. That's an old trick he learned at about 6 months old when he didn't want to get into his car seat. I really do love that kid so much. Life is never dull with him around.

Santa at the Dinosaur Park.

April took the kids to see Santa at the Dinosaur park.
It's so cute to see how excited Zade gets about Christmas.
I love this time of year. So much going on. So much love.

I love my kids. Being a parent has got to be the best
thing in the world. Zade is just full of energy. He
doesn't take naps anymore. He watches the grinch like
3 times a day. He ate mostly banana bread and popsicles today.
He is so excited for Christmas. Daisy is the happiest little girl
in the world. She is such a little angel. Everywhere we go people
are amazed at how happy she is and how big her smile is. We are
so happy to have the chance to be a part of Zade and Daisy's lives.
Every day I look at them and just want to freeze time. I guess that's
what pictures are for to freeze that moment in time to look back at.

Halloween and Price

I never got any pictures posted from Halloween
so I will post a few here.
We just got back from spending the night down in
Price. It was lots of fun. Juliannes house is
is so nice and she's a great cook. Zade had ton's
of fun with Sydney and Madison. The best part of
the trip was riding Justins 4 wheeler around. That
thing is so fast. I took Zade up the hills too and
he loved it. I'm definately going to have to get me
one of these.
Thanks Justin and Julianne for a great time.

Me and Zade went pretty fast on it and he absolutely loved it.

Zade went to the Trunk or Treat in Rochelle's Neighborhood.
He got about 6 pieces of candy and was happy.
Here he has been eating two suckers and is trying to
open a third piece of candy.

in Rochelles neighborhood.

This is Zade at the Party having a great time.

Witches night out 2008

So Saturday we went to witches night out. For those of you who don't
know what this is, it is a huge event that gets bigger every year, it is mainly
for witches to dress up and dance and eat food and shop. It is tons of fun.
This is something that we look forward to every year. We left Zade and Daisy
with my mom, who took them to her ward halloween party.
This year we dressed up as Jack and Sally from the nightmare
before Christmas (Zades favorite show).
I had no idea that Jack was so popular. We took so many pictures
with all the witches. They were just lining up to take pictures with me
and sometimes April. It was tons of fun. Little kids would just come
up and stare at me until I would wave at them. They had a stage for
dancing that only the main witches could dance on but I made a run for
it and danced for a while. Everyone started screaming when I got up there.
It was tons of fun. I felt way too cool in that outfit.

Conversation with a Cowboy

This is a little conversation I had with Zade
the other day. I love all his ideas and words
he uses. The world is so simple and exciting
to him. I wish I could have a video camera
on him all the time capturing every second.
I love him to death.

Flowrider, ifly and ice cream

So we've lived in Ogden now since about May
and we finally got a chance to go to the Larry
Miller complex and have a little fun. Tony came
over and we started off with the surfing. It was
way harder than i thought it would be. At first we
just got on and tried it and fell real hard. Then
someone suggested that we try the rope. so that helped
a little but we still weren't able to stay up very long.
Then we went over to were the little kids were and tried
the boogey board. Tony only did that once and got swept
away immediatley. He had hurt his finger falling on the
surfing. I did hurt my foot surfing, the top of the board
hit my foot and bruised it a little. Then we went up to show
tony the ifly skydiving. We werent planning on it, but we
decided it was time for me to give it a go since we were
up there anyways. It was awesome. I have to say i did
a little better at that than i did surfing. I will definately
be doing both again, it was the most fun we've had up here since
we moved here.
Here are some pix and videos.

We tried boogey boarding after a few unsuccessful
attempts at surfing. The beginning of the clip is tony.

Here's the highlights from all our video taken
with our little camera over the last year and
a half or so.

So I was talking to Jimmy Joe today and
he was bragging about how he has started
working out again. He said he felt like
his body was decomposing, aches and pains
for not doing anything. I realized that
decomposing was exactly how I felt. I
am not playing basketball anymore and my back
has been killing me. So I got off the phone with
him and went running with cocoa. There were lots
of interesting people along the way. In one
spot I saw a guy with a pit bull up ahead. So I went
off the side walk very far away from the dog. So we went
running by and the guy was behind a fence waiting for
us to pass but not really paying attention, when the pitbull
lunges towards us and the guy gets lifted into the air and
is completely horizontal trying to hold on to the dog. He
then comes crashing to the ground and the pitbull is loose.
So I lift cocoa up by the leash and hold her in my arms.
Luckily the pitbull backs off and goes back to it's owner who
is just standing up and he has a huge gash in is forehead where
he hit his head on the ground. I said are you ok, he said,
that's why I was back there. He went over to get the dog
and I took off running. It was pretty crazy.

New Driveway

So this is the last of the major home renovations
that we will be doing. The grass needs some attention,
I will get to that eventually, but it's great to finally
have this driveway in, after parking on dirt and a pile
of rocks all summer.

Making a trench for the phone line.

Pouring the cement.

So we went to Yellowstone last week with my sister and
her family and my mom. It was everyone's first time
being there. It was tons of fun. It's right in the middle
of the busy season for weddings so it was good to get
out of cell phone range for a few days. The first night
we stayed at Henry's fork of the snake river. It's about
30 miles outside of yellowstone. The second night we
camped in yellowstone. Everything went great for us,
the kids slept through the night and we were warm. Rochelle
and Doug had a slightly different experience vowing to never
camp again with kids without an RV or ten trailer.
Zade loved all the geysers he called them volcanoes.

We all got matching yellowstone hats and shirts

Dalan is getting too cool for pictures

The first night we stayed by the snake river

This is the morning Rochelle vowed never again to
camp in a tent with kids.

The bison were cool at first then I got a little annoyed
that they were blocking traffic, especially
since i wanted to go fishing.

We rented these boats for an hour. Zade insisted
on driving it most of the time. He was very determined.
We went in circles most of the time while he was driving.

So we are getting a new garage built that
will have an office on the back of it.

end of the week.

This was what they did last week.

This was what they finished today.

Cherry Hills July 24th

So we slept overnight at Cherry Hills this
year with the whole fam. It was lots of fun.
It was great weather and Zade actually slept
thru the night. Last year at Green river lakes
was a little rough.
Here are some pix.
