Our wonderful dog, Mickey!!!!

I just wanted everyone to see our amazing dog. No, he is not a big mouse, he is a mix of Siberian Husky and Mountain Cur. He will be turning 3 this April. He has been such a joy in our life. He is quite sensitive. Rex and I can't argue around him or he starts shaking. So, he's a marriage counselor and he love to play with Grace; he's also a best friend to Grace.
When we first brought Grace home, he was kind of unsure about having another person in the house, but since then, they have become the best of friends. When Grace is taking a nap in her crib, he will lay by her door until she wakes up, then he will come and get me letting me know that she is awake. We know that he cares for her a lot. We're glad he is in our family. He is our angel dog.

A Night in Salt Lake

We just celebrated our 4 year anniversary. Rex surprised me with a night at the Hilton in Salt Lake, and that morning we went to the Gateway. I didn't know that he was that sentimental but, he was. Well his sister-in-law helped plan it with him. So, His brother and wife went with us. It made it even more fun. We played games and ate lots of candy. It was a lot of fun.
Thanks Rex and Brooke for a fun time!!!!


One of my friends sent this to me. I thought it was pretty funny, so I thought that I would post it for all of the Utahns out there.
