For the last few weeks we haven't had above freezing temperatures here more than once or twice. Then came the snow. We've been pounded twice in three days by 8+ inches of snow each time. We took Kenya out for his first time playing in the snow and we had some fun. He would laugh as we would slide. He cried when we would pick him up because he wanted to stay out in it.

This is one example of what happens when Kenya is not right by me and is quiet. I watched him get the peanuts off the shelf, but I didn't think he would take the lid off. When I walked into the room he was watching cartoons and eating peanuts like everything was normal.

A little update on Kenya, he went potty for the first time in the toilet today, I'm not sure if he knew what he did, but we sure were pleased. He enjoys sitting on the potty and will run to the bathroom when you tell him it's potty time.
Here are pictures of Kenya doing his laffy taffy routine. He points to our food shelf and says "pees", "pees" (please) and we get his laffy taffy tub, he picks one out and then hands it back to us and we open the wrapper for him.
Many of you know Miles was flown out for an interview last weekend. We were pleased to find an offer in the mail this week from Skanska. I got a job!! The offer was good and so I'll be starting work april 21st in Beaverton. My position is Project Engineer.
Here is Kenya and I sporting our Skanska gear that I'd been given.
Kenya helped us cook, but the onions were too much for his little eyes
Here is Kenya helping Papi get the turkey ready. Kenya kept trying to put his fingers in his mouth, by the time he was done he was in tears because Miles kept telling him no and he thought he as in trouble.
The turkey turned out beautifully, lots of leftovers though

My broken right wrist. This happened 5 minutes into the 2nd half of our championship game. The QB decided to run the ball, I ran straight at her to pull her flags, when she rammed into me and my hand was forced back toward my wrist. I refused to let Miles take me to the ER until our game was over. I broke the radius bone on my forearm. The doctor had to pop my bone back into place because it was crooked, then he put on the cast. I have to wear a cast for at least a month. I was disappointed that I could only have a white cast.
This is my wonderful flag football team. I had so much fun playing with them. Miles was our great coach, Kenya was there to flirt with all the girls. The girl with the Jordan shirt (Beth) was our QB and can throw the ball better than any girl I have seen and better than a lot of guys.
