Who are you and what have you done with my child?

Dylan has not liked any green vegetables since he hit the toddler stage (except for peas which he barely tolerates) and he is usually pretty outspoken about it too. We have tried to get him to eat salad before but he usually gets a repulsed look on his face and then spits it all out. Well today I was eating a bowl of salad for lunch and he suddenly began asking me if he could have some too. I sprinkled some cheese on there and poured on some ranch dressing (his request) and gave it to him. I have to admit I was skeptical. I thought he might try and find a way to eat the ranch but not the salad. To my surprise he took a big bite and said "I love it!!!" Besides the green veggies he has always disliked eggs, any kind of melon, and peanut butter. In the past few months he has decided he loves eggs. So now we are just down to melon and peanut butter. Maybe there is hope for him after all!

Quick Recaps

Snow Day!
A couple weeks ago it actually snowed quite a bit here in Memphis. When I say quite a bit that means a few inches that actually stuck around for a day instead of melting instantly. Dylan really wanted to make a snow man and luckily Nick was home to help him out. I didn't buy Dylan any snow boots so I put my boots on him. He was wearing so many layers of pants the boots didn't fall off when I zipped them up! Dylan was so proud of his snow man but it unfortunately melted away by then next day! I'm glad we got at least one good snow day here in Memphis, so he could play in it!

A couple weekends ago we went bowling with our friends James and Kara. We hadn't been bowling in a long time. Besides the fact I sucked worse than normal it was still a fun time. Nick took a bowling class at Utah state so he is decent at bowling. I really need to learn how to bowl so I don't embarrass myself next time we go with other people!

A couple weeks ago we planned a birthday party for my friend Whitney. It was supposed to be a surprise but that morning Whitney went over to Emily's house and she was in the process of baking her cake. Whitney smelled it and knew what was up. We had a great cake and played a few rounds of a game called Spoons. Her and Emily's sue dates are a day apart and we were trying to figure out who has the bigger belly. Those things on their chest are Survivor buffs (from the show) and no I am not sure why they are around their chests lol. Anyways just thought I should explain that picture! We had a fun night!

Jason Mesnick (total jerk)

Wow I was really disappointed by this season of the bachelor.  I really liked this guy when he was on last season and felt so bad for him when Deanna dumped him.  Who would have thought he could turn everyone against him overnight?  First off I feel really bad for Melissa and I was rooting for her after Jillian got axed.  I can't really understand why he would choose Melissa, and then dump her and hook up with Molly all at the same time!?!  And where is Molly's pride?  She just takes him back and they are all over each other when he barely broke off his engagement to Melissa.  The entire "after the rose" show was staged.  The only one being real on there was Melissa.  Jason is a terrible actor and Molly did a better job at acting surprised but it was obvious they had this thing planned with abc.  Shame on abc for allowing this to go down for ratings!  I have been watching the bachelor with friends every week at my house and we were all so unhappy last night!  We all had some choice words for Jason after that!  I need to watch the final "after the rose" tonight even though I can't stand this guy now!
