Kyler's Sweet Heart Dance

Valentines Day was Lehi High Schools sweet heart dance. This is a girls choice dance and let see who would ask Kyler, oh yeah, of course, Kayla. The Sweet Heart dance was a Masquerade dance. Girls are so different from boys. Boys don't have much enthusiasm for things like dances. Now girls on the other hand get so excited. It is so fun to hear Kayla and her friends tell me about what they are planning. When I ask Kyler about his plans for a dance it like, I don't know I guess we could do this. Kayla, on the other hand, I don't even have to ask, she comes over and is like all guess what, guess what , we are going to do this and this and she is all excited and animated. Anyway, Kyler and Kayla went with McKenna and Brain, and Shelby and Dalton to the dance. For their day date, it was more a late afternoon date they went to the UPS store after it closed and bubble wrap sumo wrestled in the peanuts.
I'm not so sure who came up with the idea, but it looks like they had alot of fun. They ate pizza and for desert they had chocolate fodue and dipped a bunch of different thing cinnamon bears, brownies, strawberries etc. They didn't want to worry about mask for the masquerade so they painted their faces.

I think they all had a good time until after the dance when they had to go back to the UPS store and clean up. Kyler said even the clean up wasn't too bad because they have a cool ghost buster back pack vacuum that picks up the peanuts. I am so glad that Kyler has had the opportunity to go to all the dance. They will be something he remembers forever.

I never thought that I would be a dog person. I used to think my friends were crazy the way they were with their animals. They treated their pets like they were part of the family, like another child. Well that has all changed. Within a week of getting Pixie I knew that she was part of the family. I loved her and didn't even get too mad when she peed on the floor. She was so cute, little, and cuddly. You just couldn't stay mad. I got Pixie for Christmas from Pete. Then five month later Kiefer and I decided that she needed a friend so we got Oscar. Now let me tell you Oscar is a bad puppy. If you saw the movie Marley and Me or read the book, Oscar is Marley just in a smaller form. He eats every thing; shoes, socks even the walls of our new house, but there is no way that we could ever get rid of him. We all love him so much. This morning Oscar went to jump up on my bed and caught his toe nail on the bench and ripped it nearly off. He was bleeding badly and you could tell he was in a lot of pain. I just felt so bad that I couldn't help him. I called the vet and took him in and he had to have surgery on his poor foot. The money was not an object, I just wanted my poor baby to feel better. He had to have his nail completely removed and cauterized the blood vessel so he would stop bleeding. The surgery went well and they called me to go pick him up even sooner than they had expected. He is doing okay, but he is not himself. He is just laying around. I think that by tomorrow he will be feeling a whole lot better. Wow, and Pixie, the most jealous dog in the world, is being excellent. She is being so nice to Oscar and isn't even freaking out when we hold him.

Well... I have defiantly joined that weird group of people who talk about their pets like they are people and treat them like one of the family, and I wouldn't have it an other way.

I HATE February!!!!!

I hate February. I know it is the shortest month, but for me it seems to be the longest. I think this is because I am so looking forward to spring and March is the beginning of spring. By the time February gets here I am so sick of the cold, the haze, and the snow. I want sun and hot and green. I am tired of being surround by white and brown every time I go outside. Not that I can stay outside for long because it is too freaking cold!!!!!!! I really need a vacation to a beach and 80-90 degree weather. Sunny and sandy that is what I want. I love short and flip flops. I love swimming and at this point I even miss sweating and sun burns. Next year I am for sure going on a tropical vacation in February to break up the month and to ease my sun withdrawals. I am open for suggestion on some nice, hot, relaxing beaches.
