I think Ashlee is just my good luck charm, because my first game I bowled a 128 and my second game I had a 121 (those are amazing scores for me).
Sunday we got a bunch of the Save the Dates out, but I know there are many more to go. We haven't even gotten to Eric's extended family nor mine on my dad's side. I get the feeling I will be buying more of the cards.
I have been super busy at work... I think that will be the case for awhile until I get the hang of what I'm doing. I've learned probably about half of what I need so I'm pretty inept and slow still. Poor Ash has been swamped in recording, end of the month and all. I feel bad that she took over at such a busy time, I keep telling her it's not always so bad... I just hope it mellows out soon or she's going to quit on me.
This morning I popped up at 3:45 and could not go back to sleep! I layed there until 4:20 then I called Eric and talked to him for awhile. I finally gave up and got up at like 5:45 and made a Starbucks stop on my way in. I am already starting to feel tired so let's see how this day goes.....

This whole week I have been slammed busy and then yesterday I finally got to start training... after more than 8 hours, the only thing I really learned was how to FedEx.... yeah..... so I'm hoping today sits a little better with me 'cause now I'm really only getting a week before they are wanting to turn me loose.
Tommy is working on another book, he just finished Star Wars Cookbook 3 and now he's on to number 4. He also wants to do a cookbooks for Jurassic Park, Kung Fu Panda, Indiana Jones and I think there were a couple others as well.
Syrena is doing well, for the past few days her hormones have been on the low down and I've been enjoying her sweet side again. Lovin' it!
Eric is back in school and so far so good. His last class wasn't really up his alley and this one is, so he's excited about that. I can't wait until he finally is able to get that degree and start working in the field he so strongly desires to be in.
Well I got here early to help Ashlee out so I guess I'd better stop goofing around and get to work

"Reprise of Darkness"
Ticket to Revenge of the Evil, premiers the day where I see you.
Mom, Eric Animals 101 is PG-13 for mild injuries, bloody violence and swearing (someone must have told him about languages). Each episode is 2 hours 15 minutes.
Mom, Eric War Heroes is PG-13 for mild blood (and then an illustration of blood), swearing and for strong violence. 2 hours 15 minutes. I love the guys fighting at the bottom.
A Big Day at the Mountains.
The Biggest War on the Planet.

Here is Syrena about to become Raptor lunch....
Here she is checking out the diplodocus skeleton... no, no - the picture isn't blurry - Syrena is and her surroundings are just blurry.
This is my favorite exhibit... I love sharks 'n stuff. I used to want to be an Ichthyologist when I grew up and go in the shark cages in the ocean and swim with sharks...
I guess it was hungry...
The whole thing was pretty rush rush, so here she is at the very end, hurriedly digging for some fossils.
We had a great time, but there was a little dramatic scene at the very end. I practically had to wedge her off of me and throw her on the bus kicking and screaming. Ahhh, motherhood. However, I would like to leave us all knowing how sweet, thoughtful and generous she is. She fooled Ben into thinking she didn't have a lunch so he would make one for her which she then brought to me. Also, her school let the kids have bagels that morning as a snack so she made one for me and smuggled it in the extra lunch. What a little sweetheart! It was an amazingly tasty bagel, I could definitely taste the love it was made with. (Sorry for ending that with a preposition, you will all have to get over it)

Just doing the run itself wasn't enough for him, he had to keep going up on the sides and skiing down...
It was lots of fun, he's getting so good! Won't be long before he's better than me, and I'm thankful that his lessons get me out on the slopes too.
And here his on the bed with it.
Now that it is done, I might make on for the kitties because they love it so much. Tomorrow I get to go on Syrena's field trip. I am looking forward to spending some time with her... she has been quite sassy lately (damn you teenage hormone changes!) and I think this will be a great experience for both of us.

Then we watched the movie that Santa brought him, "The Man with the Screaming Brain." A Bruce Campbell movie, Eric's all time favorite actor. It was... better than I thought it would be.

On Saturday we went snowshoeing for the first time this year up Millcreek canyon. They close the road up to Dog Lake and groom it for snowshoeing/cross county skiing and on odd days you can take dogs up there without leashes. It was cold, but when you're exercising, it's perfect.
I just thought this looked really pretty, the water running through the frozen land.
And just look at this! Gorgeous blue sky, snow covered trees and a handsome fiance with your sweet doggies. Could it have been any more perfect of a day?
Here we are... I don't know what it is about the camera that makes Eric's eyes want to be closed, but this is as good as it gets.
Unfortunately, I have to report that our little Nanuk is really getting older. We only went up about 1 mile... maybe... and he was suffering big time. By the time we got down, he was barely moving. I felt so bad for him. Just small walks with him... sad. We better enjoy any kind of outdoor activity with him because those days are numbered.

Last night we watched "It's a Wonderful Life" and you know what? It really is a wonderful life. I am looking forward to a new year... I know many terrific things lie ahead; the wedding for one. My New Year's resolutions: Cut back on spending, I really do spend much too much and be nice to myself. I say all kinds of horrendous things to myself and it's doing no one any good, least of all me. Here goes!
