So, we were driving in our car last night with Tait & Blake and I saw a per-diddle. Of course, I yelled it out and hit the ceiling of the car. Mike then had me teach the game to Tait & Blake, and we were then treated to a chorus of "Per-Diddle" and "Poh-dido" from the back of the car. It was fun, especially knowing that, now, when the boys drive with their parents, they will be treated to this chorus, and may not know the game. Of course, Mike introduced that the winner of the Per-Diddle game gets a treat bought by the loser (he then designated me as the loser,) so not only will they get the chorus of "Per-Diddle" and "Poh-dido", they will also get the chorus of "I win! What do I get for my treat!"
Ha Ha, this is truly a fun thing to do with your two nephews! Teach them a new game that has treats.

So, another thing that is fun to photograph is a crazy beagle that is running through the snow. A better name for him would have been 'Psychomutt' because when he goes, he goes. He is very difficult to keep up with, unless he decides he wants to be around you or you have him on a leash; but what fun he is!We hope that you enjoy the pictures!

Woof woof! You're a St. Bernard!
No bones about it, you're a dedicated, trustworthy St. Bernard. Loyal and good-hearted, you're as reliable as they come. Your naturally protective personality is reflected in the way you treat people close to you. Sheltering your nearest and dearest from harm (or bad news, for that matter) is high on your priority list. That attitude earns you lots of gold stars, not to mention respect. People admire your strong morals -- and how well you stick to them! Focused, reliable, and determined, you always aim to please. It's a breed like yours that makes the world a better place -- woof!

Woof woof! You're a Collie!
No bones about it, you're a loyal, nurturing Collie. A sensitive breed, you're always approachable and very in tune with others' feelings -- just like Lassie! Because of your empathetic nature, you tend to be the group psychologist to your circle of friends. Your faithful, easy-going, steadfast personality makes you a wonderful confidant; people love to come to you with their troubles. Bottom line? You're a star at interpersonal relationships and have a knack for making new friends and acquaintances wherever you go. After all, what's a Collie without a flock to look after? Since you're so giving, your buddies might not realise that you need them just as much as they need you, so make sure not to neglect yours truly. Everyone deserves some "me" time. Woof!
I would encourage all to take it, just to find out what kind of dog you would be!

Anyway, this was a great New Years. Mark & Rosie invited friends and family over...family meaning the siblings (Mom & Dad just showed up to take 2 little boys with them.) Mark made some dang good BBQ meat, and said he was keeping it a secret where he got it. I am cool with it being a secret, cause that means Mark & Rosie will just have to invite us over to eat more of it sometime :). After we ate, we played a ton of games. It was fun to play games that we haven't played for a while, like Mafia (thanks Amanda for always thinking I was the Mafia...) It seemed that as the night went on, I kept saying things that everybody thought was funny, and they got funnier as the night progressed. I was extremely tired, I hadn't recovered from staying up past midnight the night before and getting up at 5:30 (that is not something that I would recommend anyone do) and midnight seemed like a long way in coming. It was great though to be a comedian, if even for one night. If I ever do become a comedian, I just have to make sure that my audience is extremely tired. I am so glad that I was able to enliven the night!
Mike & I have discovered something that we love doing, and we hadn't done it in a long time. Sledding, or as Tait and Blake would say, Scubing. So, on Monday night, we asked everybody if they wanted to go on New Years day. What better way to bring in the New Years! You get your exercise hiking up the hill to go down, and then you get a fun ride to the bottom! There were a ton of people at the hill on New Years Day and the snow was much more packed and icy than when we had gone before, but it meant that you went down faster. So much fun! I kept going past the snow into the mud and gravel and as a result, I was covered in mud by the end of the day. It is a good thing that I forgot my little plastic pants to put over my clothes and ended up wearing Mike's jump suit, I didn't even need a coat! Sledding was a ton of fun, and we even got a promise to take us to the 'sledding hill' in Aurora, which is supposed to be much bigger and much more fun! While I took pictures of sledding, I am not too pleased with most of them...so I will post just a few...here they are.
Anyway, we hope that everbody had a Happy New Year! May the year 2008 and be great and bring much happiness for all!
