The Wonder that is Saydee

If you haven't ever met Saydee then after she stops barking at you you'll realize that she is the cutest dog in the whole world. She is full of tons of personality and we wanted to share a few of her quarks with you.

Today was such a beautiful day we decided to bust out the scooter again and drove Saydee to a nearby park. Surprisingly she enjoyed the scooter ride and the wind in her face.

Oooh, Daddy loves little Saydee!

She is a fetch queen, but she hasn't mastered the art of dropping her toy after bringing it back:)

When she gets running fast she jumps over and over again. It's pretty funny.

Have you ever seen calics on a dogs bum. We love her little swirls of hair on her bum. She also has them on her neck.

If there is sun on the carpet shining through the window you can bet Saydee will be working on her tan, but when the floor doesn't have any sun on it she loves curling up in her blanket on top of the couch.

Saydee is part wolf as well. Whenever we start howling she jumps in and it's pretty stinkin' cute!

Videos of Saydee

These are some fun videos of Saydee. When we brought her back from the vet they put a bandage on her leg and she kept throwing it back and straightening it. Also, we love how excited she gets when you say, "Wanna Treat?" Also, her howl is so cute.

The Extra Mile

If you've spent more than a day with Trish you'll know that she goes the extra mile in everything that she does. She was recently called to be the Young Women's secretary in our ward (I'll miss her in Sunbeams with me) and the previous secretary hadn't made binders for any of the presidencies. Well Trish couldn't be happy with just buying binders...she had to scrapbook a page to go in every binder. About 20 scrapbooked binders later she has gone way above and beyond. They all looked awesome and hopefully the girls will appreciate them because she put a lot of time and effort into them.

Earth Hour

I don't know how many of you knew about Earth Hour, but last Saturday, March 28th, apparently the whole world turned off all electricity from 8:30-9:30 local time. Trish and I normally aren't very earthy/granolaey/whoeverelsey might get excited about Earth Hour, but it sounded like fun. We got home around 8:00 and started cooking dinner. The oven took longer to pre-heat then expected so Trish's chicken nuggets didn't get their full 14 minutes by the time 8:30 rolled around, but at 8:30 we turned off all our lights, unplugged our electric things, turned off Trish's new favorite Scentsy plug ins, lit some candles and enjoyed the night. We ate dinner sitting on the floor and sadly it was the first time in a while that we have eaten without the TV on. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. After eating we used that little lantern type candle on the table below to walk upstairs and find some games to play. We had to keep playing games until Trish started winning so we went through a few rounds of sequence, yahtzee, etc until Trish found her new favorite game with 9 cards. I didn't beat her once! It was a fun night and Earth Hour turned into Earth Hours for us and hopefully it will turn into a family tradition in the years to come.
