I Love Him

This crazy pup Rosco. He's a 9 yr old goofball. He's afraid of a lot of strange things, like wood floors (but not tile) and water hoses (but not the lake). He loves me so much, he overcomes his fears. His nickname is "Shadow". If i'm cleaning house going room to room, he'll slip and slide back and forth across those wood floors just to be close to me. On Monday we washed my car, and he stood between me and Steven (who had the water hose). I can only assume Rosco was trying to protect me from the evil hose, because as soon as it was off, he laid back down in the grass.

That's another thing that i love about him--he just hangs out in the front yard without being tied up and doesn't run away. He acts lazy and cool most of the time, until i get the leash out, and then he can run 3 miles with me likes it's nothing.

We took him to the dog park/lake last weekend because the weather was beautiful. Had lots of fun, but he never did get more than 6 feet away from me!

I love my Shadow.

Ski Bunny

Last week, we went on our first ski trip! We rented a townhouse and had five days of fun in the snow. With no lessons, we both got out there and learned how to snow ski.

Breckenridge, Colorado was beautiful!
In one day we got 2 feet of snow.
Taking a break from skiing on a 5 acre frozen lake in Keystone.

One Year Ago...

Dec 1st 2010 marked my one year anniversary of having corrective jaw surgery. This has probably been the best, most fun year of my life! I lost 30 lbs, no more braces, my face is finally symetrical, and I even have a chin now!
I still feel like me, just happier and more confident. I spent so many years trying to hide my teeth, and hating my face, and now i don't have to feel that way anymore. It's really a huge relief because i never thought i'd be able to get myself "fixed".

Sarah Came to Texas!

My little niece came to visit this summer and we had so much fun together!
We took a road trip to Abilene for a wedding and to visit with family (Wolfy came too).

We rode the train downtown with Nonna.
While there we explored the Austin Children's Museum......and our great state's Capitol.

We had to cool off with a dip in the FREEZING waters of Barton Springs pool.
Of course we ate a lot of Mexican food--here's Sarah and Uncle Steven with matching bibs.

We had a great day at Volente Beach waterpark on the shores of beautiful Lake Travis when Angie and Chris came to visit.

I already miss the little gooberhead, and her twin sisters, so we are planning a trip to visit them next!
