Who says we don't have kids?

So our precious little puppy Zoey did the craziest thing last week that I must share with you all. She loves stuffed animals, she loves them so much that she rips them to shreds. She knows exactly where the seams are and she will patiently pick at them until she finds her in and then rip out every last bit of stuffing. After cleaning up several of these instances I wanted to discontinue stuffed animals in our home but Kade thought it was the funniest thing ever (since he didn't have to clean it up) so he kept sneaking her some of her favorite toys! Sidenote: For those of you who have kids is this how it is? He loves her so much he gives her what she wants when I'm not looking? I'm assuming so and I'm not looking forward to that. ANYWAY a little while ago she found her alligator (one of the few survivors from Christmas) and ripped into it. I saw she was having fun and had already made a mess so I decided to clean the kitchen before I tackled her disaster. When I returned to the family room I found most of the stuffing had disappeared! What the...!!!!! Yep, she ate it! Almost an entire stuffed animal's worth of cotton stuffing. Zoey had cotton balls coming out both ends for 3 days and 3 nights! Needless to say that was the straw that broke the camels back and Kade and I are in agreement that Zoey doesn't get anymore stuffed animals! For those of you who have been trying to convince us to have kids, we ask, "Why? We already have one!"

Winter Wonderland in Zions

We decided to take a Saturday Hike up in Zions to see the beautiful snow and icicle waterfalls. It started out pretty fun, we went to the Emerald pools but the upper pool was closed so then we decided to head over to weeping rock. When we got there sheets of ice were falling and icicles were crashing down and people were freaking out but we wanted to get a closer look so we passed the "Closed Trail" sign and snuck up closer to weeping rock. The trail was clear and easy except there was a patch of ice we didn't see until it was too late, poor Hunter slipped and his face hit the ice before he could even get his hands out of his pockets. His braces went right through his lip and he looked like he had just been in the fight of his life. It was a fun day but we all felt bad for H-dog!

Well I know that it has been FOREVER since I've posted but I promise I will get back on top of things here. Now that Kade is back in school I will have tons of free time to myself! So as you can see I am now a brunette, who'd a thunk?!?! So everyone let me know what you think, you can be honest! We had a great Christmas this year, I hope all of you did too!

This is Christmas Eve at my parents. They got a love sac for an early Christmas present to themselves and Zoey decided that it should be hers, she's in the middle in all the blankets(her favorite place to be!)

Everyone thinks we look a lot more alike now hm.....

Zoey getting all her presents out of her stocking Christmas morning (is that stocking not adorable!) It was really fun with Zoey, its not the same as kids on Christmas morning but its a lot better than a couple of boring grown ups!

Kade totally spoiled me and gave me.... a CRUISE!!!! We leave on March 2 and I am so excited. We are going to Jamaica, the Grand Caymans, Cazumel and the Bahamas! I can't wait. We hope that everyone had a great Christmas, a little late!
