Dave's First Snowbarding Flip

This video was taken a few years ago I think .

hahaha. I don't know how much effort he put into that one but I appreciate it nonetheless.

Happy Day

Here is Dave jumping a car - yes, the Canyons have a car to jump now. We missed opening week because we were in TX so this was his first day and I believe he had a great time. When Don brought him home, Don told me, "Your man is bleeding everywhere." Not really though - he survived the day with only a few scraped knuckles, and had a wonderful time.
Riley and I took advantage of the day by going Christmas shopping with our friend, Allison. I won! I felt like I did anyways: got Dave a gift he will love and for me I got two pairs of jeans I love already. I'm not a shopaholic the way I used to be, but finding bargains is the best feeling - I paid a third of the original cost and they fit like a dream. See - I win.
Back at the ranch, Riley entertained us the rest of the afternoon...

... and Dave cut his hair, because it can do this:

Isn't he a STUD?

Yes, and not just because he got me these ->

On a scale of one to ten, today was an eleven. Did you just read that in Jafar's voice? Cause that's how my mind said it.

A few things to get off my chest

Ever since our roadtrip last week I've had this commercial on my mind and how well this business would do in New Mexico, both because of their honest advertising and their product:

Other things/confessions that have been on my mind:
  • Christmas SECRETS!!! Ah! I'm so bad with secrets but I will keep these if it kills me, and it might. When I was little Dad got Mom a ring for Christmas and I stoically held back, telling her, "I can't tell you but it's round and shiny and fits on your finger." So bad with secrets.
  • I am lazy about decorating: I didn't do a thing for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and so far, our Christmas decoration box has made it from the closet to the rocking chair but no further.
  • I am struggling with a weird inner battle of wanting to watch the new Twilight and avoiding it out of principle. I know its not quality entertainment - duh. And yet, that part of me that used to go see midnight showings of Twilight, Harry Potter, and High School Musical, is disappointed that I missed the hype.
  • I have had a grilled cheese sandwich and chocolate milk for lunch every day this week. And its Friday.

Note: Maybe these confessions are my subconscious's way of venting all that pressure build up from keeping secrets. I feel better.

Further Note: STOP, TWILIGHT FANS - before you delete me from your lives, please let me just say that I quite enjoyed the first Twilight book, but for me the vampire train derailed by the last book. And also I read this very persuasive article from NPR.
