Check out my Slide Show!

Blizzard... is it Moscow Russia?

I remember when I was young, growing up in Western Washington, praying that it would snow, doing the snow dance with my cousins, and talking to them about how we wanted a blizzard so we'd have to dig tunnels to each others houses'( across the street). Well those prayers have been answered! We're having the craziest snow storm! Brett could hardly get around yesterday, most roads were closed, and today it was just, actually pretty funny how much snow we have. You cant tell as well in the pictures but on our deck its almost up to my waist, you cant see the base of any trees they all look like bushes cause all you can see is the tops (Im talking small trees in our yard not full grown cedars) Its pretty crazy. I wish you all could fully understand how much snow! I took Berkley out yesterday to try and play in it and she couldn't walk in it and just looked at me like what are you thinking? I think itd cover her if we tried to go out today! And I just turned the tv on- the pullman moscow road is closed and down to Lewiston- basically- we're trapped!

So I've been excercising and for the first time I think ever I get it. I feel like Im in the routine and I enjoy it. I feel all around better and I know I can't stop now! Im excited and I hope everyone I know finds motivation to be healthy. I really believe this is one of my "trials" to stay healthy. Its a huge trial that everyone faces but we can control a huge portion of our health. I was watching Oprah the other day, not unusual, and they say that by not smoking you've added 10 years onto your life! How awesome! And by quitting smoking you almost instantly (about 20 minutes) see results health wise. She has alot of info on her websites and things to help people quit. Anyway I really think taking caring of our bodies that are on loan to us is a test,trial for all of us. I think its especially hard for women who have to deal with gaining pregnancy weight over and over. If anyone has any routines that have worked for them let me know Im looking for ideas to vary my excersing. Good luck to everyone and its never to late to try and loose weight!(I didn't mean to ryhme)

North Pole?

Yesterday I couldn't believe how much snow we had. It looked like a ton so I stuck a ruler out on our deck and it ws 6 inches. Way to deep for Berkley to walk in. And then I woke up this morning and it had snowed 7 more inches! What is going on? I felt bad for Brett, Berk watched from the window as he dug out his car in his dress pants. It is ridiculous. I guess in spokane they declared a "snow emergency" . Which just means they have plows going 24 hours a day. I know its been a while since we were in Rexburg but I swear- if this isn't worse its pretty close! And least we don't have the ice wind blowing in your our faces.

5 Cute Facts about Berkley

Favorite Book- She loves books. The one that she has me read over and over the most is 'Mr. Brown can Moo'. One of the times she was reading it to me and she got to the page where the cork pop's and I usually pop my finger out of my mouth to make the sound and she looks at me and put her finger to her lips. Like she knew it was something to do with that!

New Joke- to get Brett to look at her she calls him Brett instead of Dad. It ends up sounding more like 'Bet'. Its is so cute and she thinks its hilarious!

Chicken Dance- She has a cd of kids dance music and has done the chicken dance since she was about 15 months maybe younger. Not only to the song, anytime you say chicken. She got chicken dance Elmo for Christmas and that is the first thing she pushes every morning!

Biggest fear- She abosolutly hates our vaccuum. She'll hide and cry I feel so bad. She dosn't seem to be as scared at other people's homes. Ours must be especially loud. Once I was vaccuuming her room and I went to go check on her and my bedroom door was closed and she was sitting in front of it with her hands over her eyes!

Newest Trick- she jumps on my back, hands tight on my neck in choking postition, for a piggie back and just laughs the whole time! Its the best when we go by a mirror then she really goes crazy.
