We are being graced by beautiful, fluffy falling snow. As soon as Jack saw the snow he said "outside." After getting dressed in snow gear we went out at 9ish and after about 5 minutes Jack was crying "cold!" So in we came. Pretty easy. Jack is happy, I am happy:)

P.S For your information the previous picture from yesterday's post was taken yesterday; a glorious day and today BLIZZARD. Yes, I live in Denver.

Got to Love Sundays!

Sunday graced us with gorgeous weather. Church was great! Our class of six years olds' were pleasantly behaved making class thoroughly enjoyable. After a delightful morning at church we went home Jack napped,sigh, I blogged and Ben went out to visit some people from church. Dinner came and went and then it was time to explore. Ben and I love to explore. Ben loves discovering new places, hidden trails and is always in anticipation of what lies behind every bend. I, on the other hand love to explore and discover new textures, sounds, angles and smells. The great outdoors provides Ben and I with the exploration fix each of us need. Jack is quickly acquiring a huge love for exploration, he especially loves discovering sticks and explores all the ways they can be used.
We took a visit down to the creek, Bear Creek where we live and had a glorious time. We saw fish, squirrels and birds. Everyone's exploring abilities were expressed in different ways. Ben spent most of his time in a tree eyeing fish in the creek below, I spent most of my time looking through the lens of my camera capturing anything that I would describe as beautiful and interesting and as for Jack he threw lots of sticks in the creek, sat in mud, threw mud, spoke to squirrels and tried to attempt everything his Dad did.
After the creek adventure we climbing into the car and went in search of Elk and did we see elk? YES! 122 in total, I counted. It was a glorious day that needed to be documented.

Well I was tagged a while back by dearest Carlee. It was the 6th file, 6th picture tag. Who ever decided that six was the lucky number I don't know but here goes:

This is obviously of Ben. It was a masterpiece he created while he was still trying to convince me to marry him. Evidently when I saw this picture I instantly knew that Ben was the one for me. I believe the picture was made for Ben's room mate. They had a very loving relationship.

Rachael Jane Presbury, My new niece!

My brother and his wife Kim were thrilled to announce the arrival of their new bundle of Joy Rachael Jane on Tuesday. She has a delightful little brother, Joshua who I am sure will take great care of her. She is beautiful and perfect in every way. I am thrilled that we get to see her in month

The miracle of life.

Long hours, how I hate the bachelor, Math, my big boy and aerobics...

Ben, bless his heart has been working rather long hours lately, often he has not got home until 9 or later. I am so thankful to have a husband who is willing to work hard to provide for his family. Not only is he working long hours in the office he studies for his CPA exam when he gets home. Poor Ben:(

OK I have never seen the reality show "the bachelor" but I am disgusted by the commercials. I don't wish to offend anyone but I don't understand how the show is right?! From what I understand women come to seduce and convince a good looking man, the bachelor, that they are the ONE and win by receiving a proposal. I think the whole idea makes a mockery of courtship. I don't know why but the whole idea just disgusts me and makes me wonder what ideas the teenagers are getting about love and relationships. What happened to old fashioned courtship, dating, love notes, flowers, tummy butterflies, day dreaming about that special someone, being there for one another, crying with one another and all that good stuff that REAL stuff?

So I trying my hardest to absorb math. I am taking my last Math class on line and I am receiving my worst collage grades. Quite depressing. I keep telling myself that I love Math and math loves me. Well one can wish. Right now my focus is graduation with a passing grade in Math.

Jack is potty trained during wake hours. He sits on the loo without a potty seat and happily does his business, well most of the time he is happy about it. He has returned with a vengeance to hitting, any advice? His vocabulary is growing everyday. He counts to ten leaving out 4 and 5. He knows his shapes and colors. He give super great hugs.

I am teaching an aerobics class for ladies in my ward and another ward. I am so happy to have this opportunity to use my skills and it has been a great way to get to know people. Yesterday before class one of the ladies presented me with a gift. I was like; it's not my birthday. She was so darling and the gift was awesome; Victoria secret make up and body spray. I guess the class means a lot to her and she wanted to show her appreciation. I felt so special! I never expected anyone to give me anything but it sure made my day. Receiving a special gift has encouraged me to give more often to those that I appreciate.
