I think it is weird to bring snack to middle school AND high school sporting events. If the child wants a snack at that age, why can't he bring it with them. You play for snacks when you are 5 or 6 not when you are 15 or 16.

Just saying my piece.

Steven and I went snowboarding on Saturday. We didn't get the greatest pictures, but we did have a lot of fun. Pricewaterhouse Coopers was kind enough to pay for it. Unfortunately, Steven could only bring along one person (me), so Chase missed out. We'll go together next time. Here are our faces.

First Presidency

I thought this was such a nice, happy group of men. I wanted to share.


Today there were a bunch of people in the IT lab that apparently didn't have anything better to do. They go through different games until they get bored of them or somebody figures out how to hack it.

I told them my little sister could get higher on this Avalanche game than anybody. So, that started the competition. I'm pretty sure I've seen Kylie go over 1,000 ft. They've written the high score for this game on the board - just over 400 ft. That was like twice what the last guy got.

What are your high scores?

I Think It's Funny, You'll Think It's Gross

Griffin had a nice bubble bath on Saturday night. I do not stay in the bathroom with him the whole time, I would melt, and my fear of him drowning is low. I came back later to wash him, dry him, etc.

Now fast forward to Monday night, Kylie needs to shower. I lowered the shower head for her, got the hot water flowing. I noticed a yellow cup on the edge of the tub with liquid in it. I assumed it was water, and knew I had to empty it out so it wouldn't spill. While I walked over to the toilet to dump it out, I wondered if possibly there could be urine in the yellow cup. I dumped the contents in the toilet, and what do you know, the contents were yellow too.

I laughed.

Scrabble Saturday

Today we played the Shrek Scrabble game. It was very interesting. Here are the highlights as reported by Zak:

Dad had to pass his first turn
Mom cheated by looking in the bag for specific letters
Zak's personal favorite: When Zak spelled Quiet and Mom said, "I don't think you are not allowed to use personal pronounces." (In my defense, I thought he was spelling Quinten.)
Zak got one word worth 33 points.
Dad came in 2nd.
Quinn stopped playing.
Griffin enjoyed putting letters on the board. (I was trying to help Griffin play and put letters on the board, thus the cheating by trying to find specific letters in the bag. I was trying to give Griffin a positive Scrabble experience.)
Kylie came up with some great words.
Quinn tried to spell "rist". He was challenged.
I spelled sawgun. No one challenged.

Tonight, I think we will watch 13th Warrior.
