original verse...

Dances to the radio
In the car
When she feels the need.
She wants to intimidate other drivers.

Runs her fingers through her hair
As it flutters in the breeze
Near some flowering daisies
She screams - BEES!

How do you take care of sick people when you are sick?

This week is my first episode of being sick while working as a PA and it's harder than I thought.  The first few days I was pulling it off--stifling a cough by clearing my throat, blowing my nose in the back room, but today I have the full-fledged watery eyes, stuffy-nose-sounding voice, look-like-death thing going.  I have been sanitizing my hands about every 10 seconds but no one wants to see a PA that's sick.  I need a miracle cure and some Puffs Plus...stat!

Matthew's Birthday Trip

Every year it is a challenge to figure out what would make a special birthday for Matthew and this year was no exception seeing as we are living in a new place and don't know a lot of peopleMatthew celebrated his 3*th birthday last week.  I made a Peach Raspberry Buckle for dessert which turned out pretty tasty (if I do say so myself ;).  

This weekend we went to Denver for a mini-vacation.  It was Free Day at the Denver Zoo so we enjoyed a winter day at the zoo which is something I've never done before.  This picture of Matthew with the giraffes in the background  was taken in the same spot where I was sneezed on by a giraffe as a kid.  The giraffe was leaning over the rail and there were a bunch of kids standing close to get a look, then all of a sudden the giraffe sneezed  cover us in giraffe snot--gross!  I cried and cried but my family thought it was hilarious! 

It snowed on us at the zoo on Saturday and put a couple of inches over Denver.  Sunday we went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

The 3D IMAX movie "Under the Sea" was awesome and the glasses turn anyone into a Cee-Lo look-alike.
