I have man hands.
I decided to get fake nails in an attempt to make them look more feminine.
Halfway through the process I thought:
"I'll probably end up looking like a drag queen."
What do you think?

If you had to judge solely on my hands would you think,
"Wow, what a nice looking, feminine hand!"
"Wow, I can barely even tell that's a man!"

Leo hangs out with a lot of girls.
I like to think this will contribute to him one day being an amazing husband.
Ty likes to think that it will contribute to him one day being gay.

On a totally unrelated note, being able to put these two in the same bed is basically the best thing ever.
Mostly because my body is not in the midst of that tangle of limbs.

And these two:
are pretty much besties.
I love it.

In case you haven't heard. . .
All of my dreams have come true.
As of Feb. 7 we are living in the happiest place on earth.
That's right, friends.
No, I'm just kidding.
It's Arizona, and we are loving it!
Last Friday we took the boys to Freestone park and rode the little train.
Leo was in heaven.

Jay was pretty fascinated too.
He leaned over the side like this the entire time.

And here's video evidence:
(No joke, I take videos of things just to prove to our kids that we did fun stuff with them when they were little.)

And just for fun:
(How cute is that?)

Friday afternoon we went sledding at Jolly's Ranch. It was our very first time going since we moved here 3 1/2 years ago, and it was Ty's second time going ever. (His first time was on Wednesday with his deacons quorum.) I was worried that Leo would hate it. (Mostly because of this incident from our trip to the state fair this past year.) But he loved it. We couldn't even get him out of the tube. No joke he would ride down the hill, usually by himself, and then wait at the bottom for someone to come down and pull him back up. Then, as soon as he got back to the top he would say, "My turn." and then point to the hill he wanted to go down. (What a spoiled kid, right?)

Jay Alvin, on the other hand, did hate it. That didn't stop us from sending him down repeatedly though. This video is of his very first ride. He's in a tube with Leo, which seems like a really mean thing to do, but we only sent them down half the hill.

Jay Alvin was the first to get too cold to keep playing, but Leo followed shortly after.

And, as always, Leo fell asleep on the way home.

Here's the video of Leo's first time down the hill. He's riding with his Aunt Melissa.
Here is Leo climbing the pile of snow on the side of the parking lot:
And here is me and Jay Alvin. (Proof that I was there.)
