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.

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.
