beginner's luck

on saturday we played some texas hold 'em with 
christine and nate. . .hillary had some serious 
beginner's luck. that is her stash of coin. she 
would bet big every time, somehow having been dealt 
the best hands. after all the cards where out and 
bets in she would turn over her cards and ask if she 
had anything. . . of course she did, just the 
winning hand time after time. it was pretty funny.

slaby dabby do...

i was given a choice: put away our clean undies or blog about our dinner. . .so here i blog. i have become the blog master as of late anyway, if you look at the posts i've got the last several. i guess that is what happens when i have homework i should be doing. . .

my buddy bryson and everyone in provo have been talking about a pizza place called slab. so hillary and i walked over and got some grub. i know, i know everyone else has already been and blogged about it. but here is our post. but i post because the owner is a cool guy. i'd buy pizza from him any day. . .plus hillary is such a babe when she eats pizza, that any time i throw up a cute picture of her it is worth the post. . .
good pizza. good date with the wife. i sure do enjoy my life.

p.s. i got a free shirt for you bryson.

p.p.s. hillary is still on the phone so i think that means my duty as a hus-badA means i go put away the undies? t of f? probably true. . . fake doing homework or put away the whites. . ? would it be more legit if i read a sentence or two from my text for real??? does one or two sentences set me free? oh the challenges i face everyday;)

big announcement

first i would like to apologize that this announcement comes via blog. . .tacky i know. . .but we didn't have time to call everyone and share the good news.

hillary and i have a big announcement for everyone. it may come as a shock to many, but for some time now we have been expecting a new addition to our family. . .and this week it happened. . . we adopted.

his name is spike. sometimes i call him
spikey. he is getting bigger so fast. he loves to eat and just grows grows grows. he likes to relax and is very mellow, such a good little guy. very easy to handle and deal with. he does a great job being home by himself through out the day too, while we are off at school and work. just the type of little one hillary and i need around our place.

you know. . .sometimes i think i wasn't ready yet. we always thought we would wait but when it's time. . .it's time and spike was more than ready to join this family. makes me realize that the good Lord knows better than we do and when He needs us to take in and love one of his little ones then it is our pleasure to do so.

spike has an interesting story. . .hillary's sweet mother, elaine, found this little guy at wally's worlds (walmart for those that don't comprender). he had not even hit the floor yet. . .so meant to be. she was just looking around and had the impression that hill and i have had so many times before. . .our home was missing something. that something. . .SPIKE.

he grew like crazy. this picture is after we had him for several days and i realized that i should take a picture because he literally was growing those little sprout things at a rate of over and inch a day. he has slowed down a little. probably tired.

well here he is. spike, our new bonsai palm.
