Today is crazy hair day at school. This crazy hair did not meet some people's approval...the boys didn't think it was crazy enough. The head that the hair belongs to thought it was crazy. She thought she was pretty hot stuff this morning. She is notorious for taking out whatever I put in her hair in the morning at some point during the day. I'm curious about what it will look like when I get home. Then it might really be crazy hair.

This is going to one of the best stories I ever get to tell and I don't think I'll ever get tired of telling it. This is the cake that Cody and the kids decorated. Hannah was very excited when Cody told her they were going to spell "will you marry me." She asked if she could be the flower girl. Cody told her of course. Then she asked if she could go on the honeymoon. He told her we'd talk about that later. I was brought out with my eyes closed. When I opened them this is what I saw, only I didn't see the absolutely gorgeous ring. I only saw the letters. My response, true to "clueless Megan" as my fiance (how cool, I get to call him that...minus the hyphenated e...not sure how to do that here) calls me, I said "is this a joke?" Followed by "are you serious?" His response was "well hell yeah I'm serious, will you marry me?" My response was yes, of course. After he put the ring on Hannah said "so did we just get married?" No, not yet honey! (I love it, how funny is she?)
I learned yesterday that my entire family knew that Cody had asked my dad for permission and their blessing...back in October. They all knew it was coming, they just didn't know when. Lucas is pumped. He was the first to find out Saturday before it happened. Cody managed to not say anything to anyone, not his brothers or his parents (I was totally shocked they didn't know). He believed this should be something that we shared with our families and friends as an engaged couple. One of the best things is that I had no idea he was even thinking this. He and I had talked about marriage a few times. He knew that I would marry him tomorrow if he asked, but I felt like for the most part he was content with our lives they way they were. Now we get to tackle the monumental task of planning a wedding. We have a possible June 2010 date. Ummm, what are the other 184 things theknot.com says we (me?) have to do? OK, bring it on, I'm ready to marry this man! Do we have to wait 16 months?

I think this is pretty good. I guess when you look at any picture you can criticize. Now is the time I wish I had photoshop so I could play with it and make this much better. Surely I could help the ghost children in the front. You can tell it's the middle of winter and some of us haven't seen sunshine in a few months :)
These 3 love hammin' it up!

"Hey momma, guess what a galic is."
"I don't know buddy, what is it?"
"A galic is something that's inside your head and it makes your hair stick straight up and I have some."
And then the pause as I'm replaying what he just said until, wham, it dawns on me what he's talking about. And then I start to laugh :)
"Yes buddy, you're right, you do have a few galics..." which of course would be a cowlick!
What on earth did I laugh about before the kids were around? I spend so much time laughing with them, and somethimes at them, but only because they say silly things.

This was how I looked all day, except when I was sliding on my butt. It's a good thing I can laugh at myself and not be upset. The only time I did get upset was getting off the ski lift and wiping out there. The operator didn't stop the lift. Trying to get out of the way quickly, with one ski attached, one somewhere else, two poles, and my uncoordinated ass was not funny (at least at the time).
We went with Cody's brother and sister-in-law and two of their boys. They were all great, even the boys. They teach them without poles so they have to learn the balance thing. Maybe in a few years the kids will be ready to take on this task.
