I've been Tagged :)

How did you meet your spouse?
We met in the Cafeteria at Ricks College (in Rexburg, Idaho) in 1995... but before we actually met, I followed him/stalked him :) What can I say? I was intrigued by his white-boy afro :)


Where did you go on your first date?
He took me (and my friend, Jenn) fishing. He asked me out and he's such a big guy, I decided to bring a friend along, just in case he turned out to be crazy or something. Haha. There was no need to have a body guard after all :)


How long have you been together?
Well, since we started dating, it's been about 12 1/2 years! (but only 9 since we got married)


Who eats more?
haha! What kind of question is this... 'excuse me, Dave, can you give me the printout you've prepared of everything you ate today so we can compare?' Oh please! haha! But, I think I would have to say Dave does.


Who said I love you first?
Dave wins this one. I was a little hesitant with the "L" word. I wanted to be sure... it took me a few more dates than him to get to the point where I actually knew it and could say it. :) Plus, it was fun to watch him try even harder to win me over while he waited!!


Who is taller?
Dave is lots taller than me (I like it that way)


Who sings better?
I don't know. We both can carry a tune but neither of us would do a solo. Well, Dave is gutsy, so maybe he would. Dave has a nice voice.


Who is smarter?
I don't know our IQ's... lol. I don't know.


Who does the laundry?
I used to always do it, but Dave has taken it over in the past year or so. I don't mind so much now, because he's finally figured out that you really do need to separate the whites out... red and black don't do anything good for the brightness of whites. lol


Who does the dishes?
We both do them. We used to have a rule that whoever didn't cook would do the dishes... and it still kind of stands the same. But since I'm pregnant.. he's been doing them more often than me :)


Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
I do. I don't know why... it just worked out that way when we got married.


Who pays the bills?
Dave earns the money, I write the checks.


Who mows the lawn?
We both do. Again, I'm pregnant, so he's been doing it lately. :)


Who cooks dinner?
If Dave's home, he cooks dinner. If he's not home, I do, but it's almost always just kid food that I make. I guess about once a month I'll make a real meal (not just kid food). It works.


Who drives when you are together?
We take turns. If it's my car, I'll usually start off driving and I'm usually tired on the way home, so he'll drive. If it's his car, he drives... unless I'm alone and joy riding!


Who is more stubborn?
I think we might fight about who's more stubborn. I think I am. And I think he'd say he is. Or maybe the other way around. Either way, I know I'm stubborn...like a bull.


Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
Well, I'm never wrong!! LOL


Who kissed who first?
Dave wins this one. :)


Who proposed?
Dave proposed to me at a Santana concert in Utah. I think it was in Park City. It was quite a surprise and very sweet. He was so nervous, I think, that on the way to the concert he started have major muscle spasms in his back and so I had to take over driving and go to the ER!! They gave him muscle relaxers and fluids and got him feeling better... I drove the rest of the way and then he proposed when we got there, in the parking lot. He read me a poem he had written for me and then asked me to marry him and gave me the ring. :) I knew we would get married... I just had no idea he had picked up the ring and would ask me that night!


Who is more sensitive?
I'm way more sensitive... I'm a bawl baby. But he's sensitive too, in a 'manly' (haha) way


Who has more friends?
We both have lots of friends, I just keep up with mine and he doesn't. As far as current friends go (that actually live in this state), I would say that I do.


Who has more siblings?
That would be me. There are 8 kids in my family... 4 boys and 4 girls. But he's not far behind.. he comes from a family of 6 kids... 4 boys and 2 girls


Who wears the pants?
We both wear pants. He definitely prefers shorts though. hehe! We like to make decisions together. :)


I tag (that means you need to answer these questions and post them on your blog, too!!!) Vanessa, Hannah, Mandy

Wait... what??



They're back?

I hope Dave won't mind me tearing out posters from the teeny bopper magazines and plastering them on our bedroom walls.... who ever did that anyway?? Hmmm?? :)

My blogging marathon is done...

I posted several blogs today... so make sure you scroll down through all of them. I'll leave you with some pictures we took this weekend while feeding the ducks. I hope you're all doing well!! :)








Happy Easter!



It was so hot outside...but we were determined to get a somewhat decent photo of our family... Here's the best we could get before the melt downs occured.
But then I managed to get this one of the kids (in the shade) ... so worth it!!

Spring Fling

So here we are on March 22nd (man, I've had a lot of blogging-catch up to do today!)....

This was a petting zoo there... this pig is cute.


Sage really wanted to pick these flowers... but I convinced her to just capture them in a picture, instead.

haha
and here's Sage with the Easter Bunny (Alex was too freaked out to get his picture taken with the bunny... I can't blame him) but Sage is always up for a photo :)



Zoomation= free night at the zoo!!

The zoo had a fun family night on March 19th... we had a great time!!


Here, Dave and the kids are showing off some chalk drawings they made!



The kids got to make flowers out of Legos. Here's Sage's....



And here's Alex's...



And here's a picture of Sage in the field of Lego Flowers...so cool!



They had so much fun dancing behind this screen.... I had fun watching! :)



And here's a little video of the dancing action...

The belly

Here I am on March 16th...



And this one was taken today (April 1st)


You know, pictures are supposed to make you look bigger than you are... I feel like I'm really 3 times the size I look in these pictures! go figure! haha
The pregnancy is going well and I'm doing pretty well... just trying to manuver around an ever-expanding waist line (or lack there of)!!

Zoo

A couple weeks ago, Alex and I got to go to the zoo with our good friend, Hannah and her kids.
Alex thought this statue was funny :)


Alex was so excited to get in the kangaroo's 'tummy' and be her baby. He's so silly and this just cracked him up!!
And here he is with some Bamboo he discovered. He's learned about Bamboo on the cartoon about Diego... he even managed to break off a little piece to take home to show Sage :)

And here's a video of some hillarious monkeys! I don't know what kind they are but they were making so much noise and they have a big balloonish thing (like bull frogs) in their necks that blows up when they screech! It was so loud and funny!!

St. Patrick's Day

Alex stopped for a picture...




And here's Sage :)

I didn't have a clover/shamrock cookie cutter, so we pretended this was one... hey, haven't you ever heard of the luckiest clover of all?? yep, the 5 leaf clover :)

Trixie


Meet Trixie




After finding ourselves completely cat-less (gasp!!) we decided we needed to bring Trixie home to stay :)

This was her first night here... Sage was asleep and Dave found Trixie sleeping with her. Sage was thrilled to see the pictures in the morning!!



Around here, it's pretty well known that if your cat goes outside they will probably became Coyote lunch. Our last 2 cats were inside/outside cats (we brought them with us from Idaho)... it was impossible to keep them inside/safe and sound. So this time, we are keeping our cat inside (I think it's cruel, but so is death by coyote) and hopefully she'll live a long, healthy life. :)
