Spaghetti Tacos

My kids love the show iCarly.  Okay, I'll be honest.  They whole family likes the show iCarly.   They do really funny and strange things on this show and one of them is eating spaghetti tacos.  One day Andy came home from work and told me that he and Ethan were going to make dinner.  I was thrilled of course, until I saw the outcome.  Yep thats right, we had spaghetti tacos for dinner.  It tasted pretty much how you would expect it to taste.  The kids ate it all but admitted later that it wasn't very yummy.  However, it was a fun dinner and a lasting memory.

Happy Birthday Dylan!

I can't believe my baby is one.  His birthday was on January 7 and I am amazed at how fast this year has flown by.  Dylan is so cute and is starting to have such a fun personality.  He started walking when he was 10 months old so he is almost running now.  He says quite a few words and phrases but of course "mama" isn't in his vocabulary yet.  His favorite things to say are "dada", "what's that", and "ball".  He absolutely loves the "I like to move it, move it" song from the movie Madagascar.  Every time he hears it he gets a huge grin and starts dancing.  Dylan loves to scream like a girl-all day long.  I am hoping this phase ends soon.  Dilly squish (as he is called at home) is a mama's boy and loves to be held by me a lot.  This can be frustrating but I am glad he loves me so much!  Dylan loves to give hugs and cuddle with soft things.  He is very loving and silly and I am excited to see what his second year has in store.

White Christmas

I am truly always dreaming of a white Christmas but this year I think it went a little to far!  We left our house pretty early on Christmas day to go visit family.  When we left there was about eight inches of snow already but while we were away it continued coming down.  By the time we arrived back home there was over two feet of snow!  Luckily our traveling went okay because the storm seemed to just hover over Herriman.  Our elders quorum (the ones who spent Christmas day at home) spent the afternoon helping people get out of their houses and shoveling driveways.  We were very grateful that we were able to get into our garage when we got home.  It was very beautiful but I think next year I won't dream of such a white Christmas!
