Saturday Sledding

Last Saturday we spent the day sledding with friends. It had snowed so much that we didn't go very fast but we had fun anyways. Lacey and Todd brought up a gas stove so we had chili and hot chocolate.... so good. This winter is a completely different experience from last, now that we have nice jackets, gloves, beanies, snow toys, etc. I honestly have no idea why we never bought them last year. We spent the whole 8 months freezing in our little apartment! Even though I hope we are living somewhere warm next year at this time, we are really having fun in Ogden.

Sam graciously was the first to test out that there were no rocks under all that snow.... he is defintiely taking advantage of the fact that he now has health insurance!

This is Dave. When we first met him and his wife, Melissa, we went mountain biking and Melissa told us all about how he breaks everything. Now that we know him well we can tesitify of it. It is seriously crazy! On this sledding trip he was flipping off a fence and completely broke the thing in half. Last time we went sledding he popped 3 tubes, cracked the saucer, and flipped his snowmobile, breaking the tail lights. The neat part about it is that he and his wife are two of the happiest alive and just laugh everything off.

Pay it Forward

So, here's how this game works-the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well. Before you leave your comment, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (or be lazy and copy and paste like I did). Then come back, let me know you're going to play and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift! Send me an email with your address, to: melissabyuh@yahoo.com

Thanks for the great idea Meagan!

This year for Sam's birthday we did this:
We went to Tucanos, a Brazillian resraurant where they come around with the best meats and grilled pineapple and they cut until you tell them to stop. They must have come around with at least 10 of the most delicious cuts of meats. Then to top it off they have a buffet salad bar with all sorts of fun Brazillian foods. We loved the fried bananas and cheese puffs. What a fun night.
...and I gave him this:
All of Sam's close friends have longboards so I knew he'd want one too. Even in this icy weather he has already putten his longboard to use. He went cruising around the local cemetary (morbid, but it's got great paths) with Todd and Richard. Now he says I need one to go with him.... will we ever grow up? I feel like we should but I hope we don't.


My job is crazy. In the mornings I teach PE and tutor, but my favorite part of the day is from 2-6. I manage an after school program with about 50 kids who make me laugh and laugh every single day. It is crazy to have a job that I look forward to. I am blessed.

Superbowl Weekend

We had a fun weekend watching the Superbowl with Todd, Lacey, Spencer, and Rachael. Since this is the only football game of the year all six of us have seen, we were pretty pathetic when it came to the game but we knew how to do the food right. Sam made wings and dip, I made cookies and cookies, and we had tons of other very nutritious food. We all got into the game (surprisingly) and had a fun time trying to figure out the rules of the game. We never could figure out how the clock works (why would it just stop sometimes and other times keep going?).

This is what we do

Every week I get soooo excited for the weekend to come because our Friday nights are very traditional. They consist of three things: Red box, Breyers ice cream, and kettle corn. I love it.
