Valentime's roses

Here's Sophia smelling Abbey's Valentine's day roses:

Stop and smell the roses

"Flowers smell pretty!"

Stop and smell the roses

Whoa! Lets not get carried away, baby!

Then after I gave LM her bath last night, she was trying to lick her bath water and her wet towel and I kept telling her no, and "Yuck!" which she found hilarious. Then I was drying her off and she went to lick my shirt and I said "I don't care if you lick my shirt. Lick away." Apparently that's the funniest thing she'd ever heard and the rest of the night she was saying "LICK AWAY! ahahahha Lick away, Daddy!"

And now the monster story. She didn't want to get out of the truck after getting home from Daycare and was playing in the driver's seat, so I was bent over across her car seat with my knees against the side of the truck where should couldn't see them trying to convince her to come in with me out of the cold. I started drumming my knees against the truck and she looked surprised, and I thought "Aha! I know how I'll get her to come in." and so I said "Sophia! What's that sound? Where's it coming from?" Some amount of worry came over her face. "We better get inside, I don't know what that sound is." and she said "A monster, Daddy!" and I stupidly said "Yeah, lets hurry and get away from the monster!". Ha-ha! I'd succesfully gotten her inside! ...only to discover she wouldn't go in the back part of the house because "A monster, a monster! Ahhh!" So Abbey had to come home and see all this then explain to Sophia that the Dinosaur had scared the monster away. So now she comes home every day and the first thing out of her mouth when we walk in the door is "Monster gone, huh Daddy." Maybe one day I'll learn better.

More old pix

We're doing blast from the past photo's over on Facebook, so I thought I'd throw up some old pictures of me.

The first one here is just a photo I took on the beach in Mexico in the middle of the night. I thought it turned out really pretty


Here is my dorky Junior (Nope it's my sophomore pic - I'm wearing a slimeballs skateboarding shirt in my Junior year photo) year school photo - the last year I attended highschool, before going into con-current enrollment over at UVSC.


Another skating pic from the series I posted on FB earlier


What's that? Oh I didn't hear you over the sound of how awesome the 90s can be while standing in front of the Hollywood sign.


Another pic on that beach in Mexico with the dreaded rat-tail.


Inexplicably, the San Diego LDS Temple open house.

Getting dressed can be a challenge when you have such a dedicated helper...

Ride 'em cowgirl!

I got some great pics of Sophia playing with the fish Denise gave her for her first birthday and thought I'd post 'em up. I took them this morning with the Sony cam, cable be darned. I've taken to hosting everything on flickr since they have no size limits for your photo collection if you buy the pro account.


Yee haw! Note the monkey riding shotgun.


Disaster! Oh the Humanity!


Never leave a man behind!
