[insert pithy title here]

it's still freezing here

brrr... I'm cold just thinking about how cold it is.
Oh wait, I'm cold because of the drafty window I'm sitting next to, my bad.

The high this week was around 19 degrees. Even the fire hydrant thinks this is insanely cold.
But we decided to venture out into the great unknown
aka Downtown Cleve and go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Thank you Bruce Springsteen, thank you.

that's my Elvis dance, I love him.

and no post of mine would be complete without an update on Kipling.
He's good, loves to wrestle on the bed with A and
yes, I did photoshop that picture of me so I wouldn't be so pasty.

A got a little rough with him last week and ripped one of K's teeth out.
Poor boy, I'm sure he'll survive.
We bought him a new bed for the living room and he hasn't left it since (photos to come).

Hope you aren't as cold as we are!!! Ciao for now.

It is freezing here.

Luckily, I get to stay home most mornings with my favorite puppy and cuddle. He's a good stand in while Andrew's at school. He weighs almost 30 lbs now and my legs tend to fall asleep while he's laying in my lap.
When I'm not around to cuddle Kipling resorts to this

what is that I spy?

just the boy.
My dad bought us a heater for Christmas.
Kipling takes his afternoon naps cuddled up to it while I drink hot chocolate
and dread going to work. boo.

All of you have probably seen this video but it makes me laugh every time.
What the heck is this?!

Happy New Year!

1/1/11 what the? where did that come from? aren't we supposed to be living like this by now?

Kipling and I are lounging today. I don't have work, no errands to run and I am not cleaning. You hear that?! I am NOT cleaning! Whew, glad to get that off my chest. If only I had a robot maid like the Jetsons. Sigh.

Andrew is still in Utah. Hi sweetie! Come back to the Cleve right now please. I can only watch so many hours of Netflix before my brain turns to mush! Kisses!

Anyways, how was your Christmas? Did you get anything that made you feel like a little kid again?

I sure didn't, but I did get this...

Andrew and I got yak for Christmas. Andrew's dad currently owns the largest yak herd in the US.
No, I am not kidding and yes, I am being serious. Andrew and I now have a herd of about 9 yak. We are official yak ranchers.

You can stop laughing now.

Seriously, stop.

It wasn't what we expected but well, it is what it is. We're excited to have a herd of our own and I guess we'll just see how this goes.

So if you ever need a yak just let me know. Like for your upcoming wedding perhaps...

Danielle and Michael, this could be you!!!

BTW, my lovely Danielle and Michael are engaged! Congrats you two!
I can hook you guys up with a yak, just sayin'.

In other exciting news, James got a puppy for Christmas! His name is Chester and he's so sweet.

And Jared gave Aaron and my dad a remote helicopter which they were really excited about.

We also saw
and loved it minus the annoying BYU kids sitting behind us giving commentary the entire time.
Thanks guys, we would have missed all of the exciting parts if you 
weren't there to let us know what was going on. You're the best.

I also wento to dinner with Whitney, her mom and Diane.
Miss you Whit face!

Merry Christmas, from the Webbs and Yuki and Jaxx. 
I think Yuki is marking his territory. Get it done little buddy.

Now I'm back in the Cleve, grateful that the holidays are almost behind us. I only say that because work is crazy with all of the returning and exchanging and "I don't have a receipt or any proof of purchase for my UGGs but you need to take them back or I will throw a fit." Retail has made me a grinch, can you tell?

Kipling and I partied it up last night, ringing in the New Year with Captain Tony's, a cold Coca Cola classic and Netflix. Whoo hoo, party time.

Happy New Year from the Cleve!
