Good Friends-REVISED

My dear friend and fellow stay-at-home-mom to two precious girls recently posted this list from a K-5 teaching guide on "being friends." As I read through her blog, however, I found that I agreed with the entire list but felt like it was lacking one, but a very important quality, nonetheless. So without further ado, I give you my addition to the list of "being friends."
-Good friends* tell you when it's time to put the flares away and DO A NEW THING.
*And then they don't hold it against you when you take a picture of yourself standing on the toilet in your 1970's tiled bathroom and then post it on your blog.
So thanks for being a good friend, Dani! And for loving me despite my love of all things Freshman year :)

Chama Beauty

Sledding and Words to Live By

We're back from a very quick New Year's trip up North to Chama to see my dad and Vicky. It was an extremely fun but extremely cooooold weekend trip. Let's just say the -18 degree weather gave me a new appreciation for Albuquerque's fairly mild winters. In all fairness though, it did warm up some. All the way to seven {SEVEN!} degrees which, apparently, in Chama is warm enough to take your small children out in and push them down a very snowy hill on a giant piece of plastic. Yipeee!
In other news, today my very concerned firstborn was on the potty wearing nary a piece of clothing except for a pair of cowboy boots and the apple in his hand {I know, gross.} when he looked at me with the most serious of faces and tried to impart some of his little boy wisdom.  

His words?

"Momma! Don't touch the poop, okay?" 

 Outta the mouths of babes, right?
