It was delicious. I mean, really yummy. And I got it here, so it was really healthy too. Just beware. It serves 10. We ended up sharing with a lady in our ward because, even though we like leftovers, we didn't want them five times.

It turns out that our box spring is not just a wood frame covered with fabric. It had a wood base, then a weird wire contraption that's flexible, and then the fabric covering.
Ty spent hours taking the thing apart. Every time the wire touched the wood it was held together with two huge staples and he had to pry them all out. Any how, he eventually did it but it still wasn't easy to get down. We (and by that I mean mostly Ty) had to bend the wire part practically in half and force it down the steps. Then Ty cut the wood frame in half. We re-assembled it on the bed frame, but without using any fasteners. We're basically just waiting for the whole thing to fall apart in the middle of the night and leave us on the ground. Don't worry, there will be pictures when it happens.

We've had him in here for an hour or more and he just keeps jumping away. He loves it! (Although sometimes he forgets what he's doing in there and we have to say, "Jump Leo, jump!") It's been such a life saver for us to be able to put him in there while we're organizing the house(or eating or cleaning or reading . . .). Thanks Aunt Tami for passing this along to us!

We're praying that we can get the rest of the house looking like this by the end of next week. Wish us luck!
Any how, we got to pick Ty's brother up from the airport and take him to the MTC on Wednesday. The picture below is Leo in the car on the way there. It was super cold and he did not like that. We had to bundle him up and feed him a warm bottle to stop the maniacal screaming. Fortunately he's getting a little more used to it.
Leo wasn't really all that interested in presents which was good because we didn't get him any. :) He did have a lot of fun playing with daddy's mike & ikes, a gift bag and a box.
We had to take a little break about half-way through. The Christmas excitement just wore him out and he was a little cranky.
He woke up really happy though, and was thrilled to get Kung Fu Panda. (He chewed on the box for a good 10 minutes.)
Grandma Reber made us all matching hats. They're getting a lot of use now that we're back in Utah!
By the last present Leo was pretty much a pro at opening them up. We're really excited for next year when he actually knows what's going on.
