weekend of firsts.

this weekend was a weekend full of firsts.

first of all, emily and are celebrating our first second anniversary. it was amazing.
as you can see by these pretentious slippers, we stayed at the luxurious Waldorf-Astoria in Park City, thanks to a sweet military discount. seriously, one of the raddest hotels we've ever stayed in!
we left Will with my mom for two nights, his first overnighter without us.

which meant, we got to dine out late, sleep in later, hot tub in the snow, work out at the same time, listen to sales pitches about "investment opportunities," lounge around with nowhere to go and nowhere to be for the first time in a long time.
and since it was a perfect park city weekend, it wouldn't be complete without a little snow fest, which meant we got to try out our car for the first time in the snow to see how it would fare, i'd give it a B-, but we did make it back to pick up Will before my parents' church, just in time to witness Will hold his first grudge at his mom for leaving him for a couple of days.

he got over it soon enough. soon enough to enjoy his first snowy play day, his first inadvertent white wash as he biffed it in the snow, and of course his first snow man. even though, he's our little southern beau, he definitely loves Utah, it's snow, and all his new firsts...!

the holiday season has begun...

once halloween is over, something very special happens.

a certain something begins to appear.

a certain delicious yellow beverage makes its annual debut.

i'm just so glad that my son loves it as much as i do...

nothing makes me happier.

bottoms up: like father, like son.
ps. this is his 6th shot of Nog. he could probably do more, but we have to help him find his boundaries/limits, something i didn't learn about egg nog until my freshman year at college. that was an ugly time for me...

also. i made my first commercial tonight too for NIKE's new Lebron shoes: Lebron 8. NIKE wishes they could use my kid...
