Jet-setting is the new awesome (Part I)

If you look up "jet-set" on it has one definition:
"An international social set made up of wealthy people who travel from one fashionable place to another."
Pretty close to my reality...sort-of.

I've been doing quite a bit of flying around the country this past month. I don't even remember the last time I was in San Francisco for a weekend. Oh wait, yes I do. This weekend finds me in beautiful Pleasant View, Utah.

I flew out of Oakland on Wednesday evening and due to inclement weather we got to fly right over San Francisco!

It's been raining in San Francisco for the past two months so I was looking forward to a nice break.
Hello parent's house. Nice to see you in your winter best.

The main reason for my trip is because Jacob is getting baptised! That happens Saturday...until then, Jake will be killing me and everyone else at chess.

Emma and I were taking self portraits. Right before I took this one Emma said "let's pretend to be our favorite farm animals!"

Emma was being a horse. I was being a rabbit. Obviously.

Allie turns 1 today! So many fun things to celebrate! Allie is not sure if she likes me. Everyone keeps telling me it's because I have dark hair now. And Allie isn't use to people with dark hair.
Here is Allie being not sure if she likes me.

Here is Allie being sure she doesn't like me. But I still like her.

Then the whole family decided to go see Ice Age 2. So great! I drove with Allie

and Suzy.

After the movie it was time for Allie's birthday party. There were too many adults standing in the kitchen. And too many children (Sophie) crawling across the counter.

Allie was SO excited for her party!

Rosie was SO excited for Allie's cake!

If you think this was a party...wait til Part II.

    I need a man who cuddles in the bedroom and beats some ass in the the streets, not a man who cuddles in the streets and beats my ass in the bedroom. Aaron, you've got a long way to go before you can walk my dog.

    PS, when you got booted of the linkup, did they stop you from getting on the site from the computer you were kicked off on?

    Yes I will marry you Betsy Heywood.

    no, because i was only deactivated.

    but i've cried on three occasions reading what you wrote.

    but crying as in "i'll beat their asses on the street." not like "i want to hold hands at the cross-walk."

    did you see right through that? i'm trying, i really am.
