Christmas Morning 2008

Here is the latest installment of Cathy's (Steve's mom) infamous Bob's Toys gift. For you who don't know, she gets a kick out of $2.99 toys and we become victims every year. This may have been the best year yet. We hope you enjoy tthe pics and video as much as we enjoyed the Cranium Giggle Gear with voice changer!

Silly Jack

If any of you know our Jack, a Maltese-Pomeranian mix, you know how much of an attention hog he is. Tonight was no different. After hours of trying to get me and Steve to play fetch with him for more than a few minutes at a time, he finally had enough. He started growling and pawing our hands, which is Jack-anese for "CHASE ME ALREADY!" So I jumped up suddenly and chased him into our bedroom. We started fighting over his plastic toy bone, growling and pouncing, and hiding under the sheets from each other. I hopped off the bed after smothering him in blankets and when I looked up all I saw was a little black nose. It was so cute! But then I couldn't get Jack to move! He sat under the covers with just his head hanging over the edge of the mattress. I called Steve in and he couldn't get Jack to move either! Apparently he was content being squished by mounds of down comforter. What a silly little puppy...

1st Anniversary

Brooke and I celebrated our first anniversary on October 2nd, exactly one year after the day we were married. We decided to travel to Park City and stay in a hotel for a night. This was the nicest hotel Brooke or I had ever been in. Ever. We won't mention the cost, but we did treat ourselves a little bit. The room had a king size bed with down pillows. It also had a separate living area with a nice leather couch and love seat. There was a also an electric fireplace. Super nice.
The package we purchased came with a credit to the restaurant Ruth's Chris Steak House. This was also the nicest restaurant Brooke or I had ever been to. We were shown to a table by a man named Pasqual. Nice, right? Anyway, during the meal, between courses, Pasqual came by with a small plastic crumb sweeper and cleaned our table off with it. He was also there to refill our water glasses as soon as they were half-empty (or half-full depending on how you look at it). Plus, we could barely understand his english so it seemed very exotic. Brooke got a petite steak which was amazing and melted in your mouth. Our server informed us that the steaks there are cooked at 1800 degrees and served on 500 degree plates. I'm not sure about the 1800 degree cooking process, but I can vouch that the plates were definitely freakin hot. I got an herb and cheese stuffed chicken breast. It was delicious and also was served on a 500 degree plate on which I burned myself several times. For dessert, we got a chocolate cake with hot gnache frosting and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It was similar to molten cake from Chili's, but better. While we were eating it, I accidentally dripped chocolate onto the white table cloth that Pasqual was trying so very had to keep clean. I felt awful. Anyway, we ended up having to pay for our drinks which consisted of a diet coke and two milks, which cost us 15 bucks. Ouch.
The next day when we left, we forgot our leftovers in the hotel room fridge. Understandably upset, we walked up and down main street in Park City, observing the fall colors on the mountains. It had a calming affect and we drove home happy. Happy to have experienced the finer side of life, and happy to be married for whole year.

office party

We had some people over for the new season premier of The Office. We tried to re-create Jim's prank of putting a stapler in jello. If anyone, ANYONE, ever tells you that it is an easy task, call that person a liar and ask them if they know where liars go. It was a lot of fun though and we thoroughly enjoyed the new episode.

here's some pictures of our hike up mount timp. we went with brooke's dad, brother and two sisters. it was fun. and stuff. halfway up the hike, it started to hail pretty bad, but lucky for us, we had 87 cent ponchos from walmart to keep us dry-ish. it didn't hail for long, but it was long enough to get everyone wet.

We're Bloggers!

So apparantly there's this new-fangled thing called a "blog" which is kinda like facebook without all the annoying ads, applications, etc. I guess we'll give it a shot!
