Have you ever cleaned the bathroom while listening to this man?

It's a sweet experience I'm tellin you.

I'm puzzled by this...

Romney supporting John McCain?

McCain is not the face of conservatism.

Is he hoping for turn-about in the upcoming Presidential race?

Disappointing if this is politics as usual.

I think he is risking his political future with this unnecessary endorsement.

I Love this kid.

Elijah was ordained a deacon today.
It was a beautiful day for Labit's everywhere.

Aunt Judie drove through snow from Salt Lake...

Grandpa and Grandma Brown
flew down from Washington.

Families are forever-aren't you glad?

This is what I'm thinking about tonight...

After spending a crazy amount of time wondering how to make my 44 year-old body want to run/hike/climb/pedal/aerobicize (but mostly eat) its way to a better me...this is where my thoughts went:

The Cookie Dough Sandwich.
It's a sad, sad, day.

Happy Birthday Elijah !

Did I forget to mention that amidst all of the Valentine hoopla this week, Elijah turned 12? Yes, we hosted 13 pre-teen boys Thursday night for "glow-in-the-dark" soccer and "make-your-own" pizza's. It really was a lot of fun - he has such a nice group of friends. They were polite and and very thankful. Weird huh? (Also, pretty rambunctious!)

Happy Birthday Elijah- on to great things this year!!!

Happy Easter

I really do think that I like Valentine's Day.
Especially in January.
I convince myself that Valentine's Day will be my mid-winter salvation. All that pink and red happiness.
The truth is-it makes me miserable.
Today was the official "celebrate V-day at school before the 4 day weekend."
Lot's of baking and and buying sugar.

My menu today:
Breakfast: Oatmeal w/a banana
That's it- my only meal. The rest, Valentine's sugar...cookies, candy, chocolate.
It's not even the 14th yet.

Oh well- there's always Easter..

George Washington is my hero.

Read this book:

If he isn't already, he'll be yours too.

Chris who???

Did you see our man Jason Chaffetz go toe-to-toe with the President?

He was courteous, respectful, and right on the money.
Chris Cannon never looked like this...

Read about it here.
