Overdue Update!

These are very overdue x-mas photos. This is my mom & immobile sister (I'll post about it later)
Mom & Ka-Bug having a x-mas dinner at Little America

A couple of months ago I visited my dear friend, Kimmy in Arizona. We lounged around in our pjs, watched multiple chick flicks, ate yummy homemade food, worked out a few times, shopped, and played with her adorable baby, Easton.
Easton is just about the cutest kid ever! Even his cry was cute.
Can you believe all of that hair?
When it was all said and done, I had a blast visiting and I didn't want to go home. Kim was such a great example of what motherhood should be like and I appreciated her patience in teaching me the ins and outs of what it takes to be a mom--whenever that might be for me. :) When I got home from Arizona, Tim has cleaned the house and put up our Christmas tree with lights (this tells you how long ago these pictures were taken). He even made me dinner and set a candlelight dinner for me. Such a cute, romantic dude he is.
Just a few weeks ago, my brother and dad came into town to ski and visit. We spent the majority of the week skiing between Deer Valley, Snowbird, and Snowbaisin. I always love when they come into town--it's such a reprieve from my daily life.

Tim, Kirst, & Meg. (Everyone says me and Meg look like twins, but I don't see it)
Brian & Dad
I even got to see my good friend Kim again. She came into town for X-mas with her cute little family. This picture was taken right after I lost 2,000 points while playing the game dice. Should of stopped while I was ahead--greed gets the best of me.

Me & Dad
Just this last weekend, Tim and I decided to get out and go snowshoeing. We packed the dogs into the car and headed up to the canyon behind our house. After about an hour of hiking, Gus started to get distressed, cold, and whiney. We had to cut our adventure short and tail it back to car. Gus was so cold (and he even had his argyle turtle neck sweater on), Tim had to put him inside of his coat and zip it up.

Lastly, my hair was getting ridiculously long and I had had enough of pony tails and wet hairdos. I decided to cut my hair yesterday right after I was done with work and surprise Tim when he got home.
Tim always liken's me unto cars....Tim's words are..."I fee like I've traded in my Mercedes for a Porsche."

Weird. THe words didn't show up till I highlighted your post. I thought it was a just a review in pictures at first.

I also got my haircut yesterday. Yours is so cute. I love it. Mines better than what it was but I should have cut it shorter like I really wanted to.

Can't wait to ski with you tomorrow.

Cute hair...the cut makes your eyes "pop!" : ) How fun to see pix of your dad..even though I never met him, I just remember seeing pix at your house of him with a mustache! How fun to have him visit!!! I also think Magoo looks more like you now than she did when she was little. People say Anne-Marie and I look like twins too, but I don't see it so much either!
-Last but not least, you've got a great hubby to have made your night home from your trip so romantic! : )

The hair is very cute. You were cute with long hair though too darlin'. I love that you guys get out and about and enjoy nature. We do too. You guys in the snow and us in the desert hills.

WOW, I LOVE YOUR HAIR!!!!!!!!! It makes me want to cut mine! I am also sad we never got a picture when I met up with you guys for lunch in AZ and second because we never met up in SLC! However, the weather is amazing this time of year so...come on down! Yes, what a great idea to meet up in Vegas sometime!
