Another weekend with Yuki

Just in case you were wondering, (and I know you all are) this will be my second weekend with the little furball. My dad's in Saint George visiting my grandparents for the weekend and since Andrew's out of town I'm kicking it with my favorite little man in Orem.

It's nice to be home. It's not the same as it used to be but I'm getting used to it I guess.

Plus, I'm going snowshoeing with Diane as soon as my laundry is done!!!

Andrew is in Cleveland interviewing with Case Western until tomorrow. He said it's pretty nice, not Boston, but still nice. (Please Babson, please, please, please!!!)

Aaron just got his dealer's license for drugs...just joking, that was pretty funny though. Not for drugs, what kind of family do you think we are? Don't answer that. Anywho, for cars, his dealer's license for cars. He called me yesterday to let me know he found a orange and white scooter for $500. I wonder if Andrew would be mad if I bought a scooter while he's gone? Only one way to find out. :)

weekend with Yuki

Before we start I just want to gloat for a second. I made these chocolate lava cakes a few weeks ago and they were delicious! 
(please pardon the messy plate, it was the only picture I could get before they were devoured)

My dad and Denise went to Yellowstone this weekend so I get to dog sit my sweet little Yuki.

Good morning sleepy head!

Very attractive look, he really needs a bath

before a bath...BREAKFAST!!! Pancakes, syrup and kibble, yummy!

dun, dun, dun...the bath, I'm so sorry!

a little wet rat named Yuki (don't tell him I put this up or he'll kill me)

so much better!!!

next...the walk.
This was the position most commonly seen during our walk

little moments of Spring (hurry please)

and after a long drive to Orem, visiting Aaron and his new puppy, lunch with Diane, a baby shower and a long drive home...we simply crashed

tough decisions

My wonderful Howerton family is coming into town for a family reunion in June and I'm in charge of hiring a photographer for family pictures. We haven't had family pictures in a very long time. (and when I say very long time, I mean it) All I remember about them is that I was wearing neon pink leggings, when they were in style the first time around. (I told you so) So it is high time to redeem myself and move on with my life but I'm having a hard time choosing between 2 photographers, both recommended by my beautiful best friend. (HI WHITNEY!)

The first is Rusty Bucket Photography and the other is Elisabeth Kate Photography. (both about the same price) I need help, please let me know which you like best. I'm so's crippling, please help me or I may become like this guy. I wonder what he's thinking about...
