My Rose

This is Sydney's favorite poem. Now I can't see a rose without thinking of her.

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose
But were always a rose.

-Robert Frost

Christmas Eve Evening

Twas the night before Christmas,
Two presents exposed.
No time until noticed,
Some darts and pipe hose.

The use of these gifts?
Just point, blow, and shoot.
But it's fun for sword fights
And baseball t'boot.

With a swing by the batter,
And slip of the grip.
The pipe flew through air,
Doing flip after flip.

The new hanging ornament,
Turned us round to view,
A small hole in the wall.
Merry Christmas to you!

It's Christmas time again. That means Jon playing the recorder, homemade chex mix, and our new tradition...Babes in Toyland

This new tradition includes...

This includes Keanu Reeves before his excellent adventure as a man a man who lives in a bowling ball for the love of his life...

Toy Soldiers who only work when a child believes in them... (Spoiler Alert)

Asian Santa and an army of swamp monsters, or monsterpieces...

And Drew Barrymore before SNL ruined her for everyone

Believe it or not, if I muted, changed the channel, turned off the TV or even held the remote threateningly Sydney would have a tantrum suitable for a four year old. Bring your cameras next year...

Fa la la la la la Sushi-YA!

Saturday we went to Sushi-Ya, my favorite sushi place. Now it's Syd's favorite too!

I ordered my favorites, The Godzilla (Fried Tuna Roll), The Californian (Crab and Avocado Roll), and an Avocado Roll. Every single one of them was extremely delicious, especially with some wasabi and ginger soysauce. I can hear your mouth watering from here.

We quickly went shopping at Tuesday Morning and then stopped by the Ward's Christmas Party. I know, we wish you were there too...

71 to 61

This is me bragging, rubbing it in faces, showing off, laughing, winning.

This is the tip off picture I took:

Later after this picture, we won.

This is the winning score:

These are our winning faces:


ps. I love you. More.

BYU!!!! vs usu...

The big game is today. BYU vs US...Poo in basketball.

We've made a little wager... Who ever loses has to wear the winning team's logo on their underwear.

Once, a stranger asked me, "David, why do you persecute USU so?" Because they steal my woman! They can make as much cheese as they'd like, live as far away as they'd like, and lose as many football games as they like, but give me back my Syd.

Cougars, don't fail me now!
