the babe with the power

My sister in law, Rose, and my dad's only grandchild, Tyler, are in Utah for a bit and I got to spend the ENTIRE day Tuesday with them!!! It was so much fun! Tyler, not to brag, (okay, maybe a little) is so smart and outgoing and probably the cutest little boy in the world. We'll take any of you on :) On Saturday, he read the entire Polar Express book to Aaron and me by memory. I can't get enough of him!!!

So here's our Tuesday...

We went to Grandma Vickie's grave and trudged through the snow

Tyler told Grandma Vickie all about his busy year, what he was for Halloween, he sang her "Happy Birthday" and "The Polar Express" song, all about how he pooped in the potty, how old he turned this year and he even blew kisses to her.

Me: "This is so great!" Tyler: "You're crazy, put me down"

Then the fun happened...we went to Chuck E Cheese!

Tyler's favorite was the car games

What a happy boy

Luckily Grandma and Grandpa Garnder were spending the night at my dad's house before they made their trek down to Saint George for the rest of winter so we had a big dinner and music session with them!

Tyler got a new truck with a fifth wheel and ATV's from Grandpa Kim

I love my grandpa's stories

Well that pretty much sums up my Tuesday. What more could a girl ask for?

Sledding with the babes

To celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day we headed up to the GR for some fun! Andrew and I bought an iFlip on Saturday because we can't figure out our nice video camera. Luckily, someone in MA wanted the nice one so we sold it on Amazon. I love Amazon, and our new video camera!!! The videos are a little jumpy so if you have a weak stomach I would beware :)

In this one Andrew is driving beside Phil and the girls (Emma and Leah) on the snowmobile as they go down.

Andrew is holding the camera along with the babes. I love Miss Em's screams of terror.

As you can tell, we're still getting the hang of it but we absolutely love it!

into the wild blue yonder

Andrew and I just got back from Hawaii. Because I am a good friend and like to rub it in that it wasn't negative 20 degrees there, here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
