Avoidance only works for so long...

It finally happened. I got tagged. Yep, I'd been avoiding but Quinn didn't get my subliminal messages!!! So the rule is I get to post a specific picture, here's mine.

This picture is Kim and Freddie in the front and Todd and Robert right behind them on California Screamin' at Disneyland last year. The reason this picture is so hilarious is that Kim absolutely hates roller coasters and this one goes 0-60 in 3 seconds up this hill, but you get to sit and wait until it launches you, which is a little nerve racking for those of us who actually enjoy roller coasters. Her smile quickly changed once she was launched. The next picture is better but unfortunately its blurry ( and not part of the game). I was not on the coaster because I was preggo. I was really sad about that, but Lillie doesn't like coasters either so she was standing with me laughing at them. So I respectfully tag Cindy, Traci and Tammy. The rule is to pick photo number 4 out of the 4th picture file on your computer. Have fun.

Utah Football and Bob Marley

As I sit here after putting the kids to bed, listening to Todd intently watch the Utes barely beat Oregon State, and try to think of a way to drown it hits me....Bob Marley. How can you beat a little reggae to make everything feel alright...Jamaica mon, take me away.

The Massagli Family arrives in Spokavega

Anita and Andy and family are on the move!! They are moving from Indiana to Seattle and well, Spokane is on the way. They stopped in to say hi for a couple of hours before finishing their journey. It was so great to see them and the kids. We haven't seen each other in about 6 years so it was nice to catch up. Yes, I am a bad friend and did not have the camera with me, so unfortunately there are no pictures. Their kids are all grown up and so adorable. Camillo tried and tried to get Cassie to let him hold her during breakfast but she wasn't having any of it. By the time we were ready to go though, she was all about hanging out with him. I did ask if he could stay with me so I would have such a wonderful babysitter, but they said no (I wonder why, it's rare that you meet a 14 yr old boy that talks, let alone likes kids). I'm really glad that they are so close because this gives us an excuse to get to the coast more often. I tried to talk them into just staying here but Andy kind of needs a bigger airport (What? It is Spokane INTERNATIONAL airport!!!!) It was good to see them and we will get together soon I promise. Thanks for stopping guys.

We love our "puppy"

My friend Gusti recently posted on her blog that she was looking at getting a boston terrier puppy. Since our BT "puppy" turns 9 in a couple of days, I thought I would write a quick note to say Happy Birthday. I know...he's a dog and can't read, but if he could I know he would be happy. As it is, I get cuddles and licks just for petting him, I don't even have to say anything. Don't you wish your kids were as easy to appease?
