Girls Weekend

I am so sorry that it has taken me this long to finally post my trip. Jesse's mom decided to get all of us girls for Christmas a weekend get away. So she flew me home to Utah over Presidents' Day weekend and we drove to Park City and stayed there all weekend. It was me, Jesse's mom, his Grandma, his sister Rachel and his two sister in-laws Jodi, and Kjerstine. His Aunt Trina and her two daughters Christie and Stef, joined us in Park City for a wild and crazy weekend too. So it was a fun filled weekend that included shopping, movies, eating, a sewing project, shopping and more eating. I had such a great time. It was hard to be away from my baby for the first time but I think that Finn and Jesse had a blast with me gone! But a big thanks to Jesse's mom for a wonderful time.

This is the front door to our condo behind this monstrous pile of snow and ice.

This is a volcano thing that is filled with a natural hot spring. You can walk inside and if you would like you can even go scuba diving or swimming in it for a small charge!

Jesse's cute Grandma

All of us ladies. Lindy, sister in-law Kjerstine, Jesse's mom Becky, Jesse's Grandma Fay, his sister Rachel and sister in-law Jodi. Aren't we just a hot bunch!

Spa day. Jesse's mom treated us to massages. It was lovely. Thank you Laramie! ( He was my masseuse.)

All of us ladies at lunch.

I didn't take to many pictures and I feel bad that I didn't take any pictures of Jesse's aunt and two cousins. Maybe when they send me pictures I will make a girls weekend continued. But this will have to do for now.

We very well may be the owners of the most boring blog on the internet. Two weeks have passed and we don't have anything exciting to blog about once again. Finn is crazy as ever, getting into everything and throwing it on the floor. The kid can't sit still for more than two minutes. He has been picking up some new tricks- pointing to body parts, making noises of animals, and calling anything round a "ball". We still struggle to put the pounds on the guy but find hope in his new found love of Trix cereal and Teddy Grahams. Finn and Jesse survived a weekend alone as Lindy went to Park City for a girls-only trip (pictures coming later) and both are extremely happy to have the woman back in the home. We are all hoping that spring will spring soon so that we can get the wiggles out somewhere besides our little home. Here are a few recent pictures and a little video of the bambino:

Finn actually really likes wearing stuff on his head. We much prefer actual hats than when he puts blankets on his head, covering his whole face, and walks around the house, inevitably bumping into something and falling over.

At the zoo earlier today. The animals were all crazy and mean to each other and we have never heard the zoo be so loud. We think love must be in the air.

It may take a little coaching, but his kid-tricks are really in there.

"Groundhogs' Day" is one of the greatest movies ever

We really have nothing new or exciting to report. Things are going well here and we pray for warmer days so that we can get Finn out of the house a little more often. We have all been sick this week and have had a great parenting experience cleaning up puke, boogers, and other horrifying bodily fluids. It was a Groundhog's Day miracle that we didn't sell the little boy to the gypsies after this week. He continues to give us heartburn over sleeping and eating and boogers everywhere, but we figure that is what we signed up for when we decided we were big enough to have kids. Anyways, here are a few fun pictures from the last couple of weeks:

I don't know how it is possible to fall asleep over such a delicious meal as McChicken McNuggets, but Finn found a way.

We have a new way of entertaining the boy when we need to get some things done around the house. We sit him on "Henry", his octopus chair (thanks Grannie Kris), and put him a foot away from the T.V. It works for about 5-10 minutes.

Watching "Robin Hood". Every town has its ups and downs. Sometimes ups outnumber the downs. But not in Nottingham.


We went to the Jazz-Nuggets game here in Denver a couple of weeks ago (thanks for the tickets Neil and Beck) and the Jazz got worked. They play again here this Wednesday and Jesse is going on a man-date to the game. If they don't win, he will probably burn the green shirt.

This seems to be the only way Lindy can get Finn to sleep in his crib.

Yes... That is Lindy sleeping in Finn's crib with him. What a spoiled little stink we are raising!
