Playhouse Disney Live!


Some friends of ours had tickets to Playhouse Disney Live at Energy Solutions Arena today.  They asked Jeff if we might like to do something like that with them.  He said of course and then a few days ago he called me from work and asked if I knew what the hot dog dance was.  I said yes being an avid watcher of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  If you don't know what it is just tune in to the disney channel and watch and you will see what I am talking about.  Anyway, you will see in the photos Peyton on stage doing the hot dog dance in front of everyone.  Good thing I am still testing out the lens because we were on row 21.

This was at the end of the show Peyton was trying to finish off the last of the popcorn!!!
Peyton walking off the stage.
Doing the hot dog dance!


With Tigger before the show started.  They were a little nervous and Kayton was with Jeff crying!
Sorry I got the pictures in the wrong order but you get the idea!

A New Lens




So Wendy is letting me trial a new lens for my camera with a better zoom.  These are some shots I did this afternoon.  I am thinking I might have to splurge and get it.  What do you all think???
Problem is I think I am going to need a new flash too ugh!

We'll take the good news....

and the bad.  We went to Primary Children's today for what I thought was an appointment with a pediatric orthopedic doctor (are they all surgeon's?).  As most of you know Dalton is a tip-toe walker and I guess based on what I told the 18 secretaries and medical assistants I spoke to on the phone they determined I needed to see a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon.  But no one told me this.  Not even the self important surgeon herself until I in all my ignorance asked if she would be doing the surgery.  To which she replied "That is why you are here!"  "Is this the first you have heard any of this?"  Um yeah that is why I have this shocked look on my face.  Thanks for asking!!!!! 
Well that is not exactly why we were there.  We were there because Dalton can not stand balanced on his flat feet and I thought maybe he needed some physical therapy or something.  What he got was an xray from the waist down and an appointment for a surgical procedure to uncontracture his achilles tendons on both legs.
He then has to wear cast boots for 6 weeks!  
We were all a little shocked and Dalton is very concerned about the casts!  There is nothing wrong with him.  He is still my sweet Dalton that he was when we left the house this morning at 8:30 am.  We just get to worry about the next thing we have to do!!



This was us at the doctors office trying to kill time while waiting for the SURGEON (lest I forget)!!  Oh just incase any of you are related to a pediatric orthopedic surgeon I apologize for my offensive comments.  (Wear your badge with your credentials if you need to be treated different than any other human!!)
We are wearing red for the parade for the football team this afternoon!  Go UTES!

Christmas Revisited!

With the excitement of the bowl game I kind of neglected Christmas so here is a small look at Christmas morning.  We spent Christmas Eve and part of Christmas day at my parents home with my cute sister and her husband too.  It was so much fun.  The kids had a blast and Santa even knew that they had moved to Price.  It was truly a Christmas Miracle because Santa had been visiting us in Gunnison for over 30 years.  I am so glad he knew where to go.
Santa we still believe!!!!!

Pour Some Sugar on ME!

So happy after the big WIN!!!
Me with Louie Sakoda.  Pretty sure this photo may be worth something someday!  haha

Jeff and I with a replica of the trophy which will now be displayed at the U!!! (not the replica the real thing) Yeah!
New Orleans was a lot of fun.  I got there on New Year's Eve.  Jeff and I went to an early dinner because I had been on a plane and was starving.  We ate at a place called Zea's and I had some Thai BBQ ribs, cabbage and black-eyed peas (for good luck in the new year) and Thai snap peas.  It was very good. Jeff had fried catfish and cheesy corn grits (heavenly!!)
We went to fan-fest.  The two pictures from above.  Then we went on a paddle boat dinner cruise on the Mississippi.  It was really cool.  The pictures didn't turn out great it was too dark.
We went back to the hotel and tried to get some sleep but it was business as usual for Jeff with the phone ringing off the hook so we finally just got up and watched the fireworks over the Mississippi and then tried again to sleep.
New Year's day I went to the wives activity which was pretty fun.  We decorated parasol's and then were in a Mardi Gras style parade.  We threw beads and followed a band through the streets to the restaurant for lunch.
The following day I did a short hour tour with my father-in-law and then off to the game.
The rest is HISTORY!!
Go UTES! and Happy New Year.
