Tyson James Myers
Age: 4
Problems?  Eating weird looking bread for the sacrament.

So this last Sunday Tyson was the last one up and ready.  Not surprising because of his sleeping habits which are awful.  He usually is asleep by 11:00 sometimes later.  He is put to bed at 8:00-8:30.  He is allowed to watch a movie sometimes just to get him to stay in his bedroom.**side note:  I took him to a kindergarten screening and one of the teachers asked him "when do you go to bed?"  looking for "when its dark outside"  for the answer.  Tyson said "when the movie is over"   I laughed. **   He usually wakes up at around 9:00 a.m.  (which is what time church starts)  so I knew this Sunday was going to be a hard one for him having to wake up an hour early.  Anyway, He didn't get to have any breakfast so I made him a pb&j to eat on the way to church in the car.  So we are at church and here comes the bread and it doesn't look good.  It isn't white or wheat but it had these big black seeds in it.  I don't even know what kind it was.  Carson ate it which was a surprise, so I thought OK it must not be too bad.  Everybody had some, great!  I look over at Tyson and he has this look, you know the look when your kid has eaten something that they don't like and it is going to come back out any second.  He says, "Mom, I can't swallow it." and proceeds to make sounds that are too loud for church.   I take him out to the bathroom where I tell him to spit it out in the trash which triggers a gag reflex.  I guess you could say it was a waste of my time making that sandwich.  Poor guy.

We are finally thawing out a LITTLE bit up here in the Idaho panhandle.  I can see a few patches of dirt in the driveway.  I never thought I would say this but " Is it ever going to end?"  I am a winter lover!  I love the cold and snow, the more the better.  But Geez, come on!  We have had a few days in the high 40's and the kids think it is spring.  They don't want to wear their snow clothes or boots to school.  There is still a foot or more of snow all over the ground!  The predicted amount of snowfall in Coeur d'Alene for 2007-8 is 140 inches so far there has been 127 inches.  The average snowfall is 67 inches!  We are looking forward to Spring Break.  Here are some pictures around the cabin.  I picked a "sunny" sounding song to go with it so you wouldn't get the winter blues. 

Man! We had a lot of SNOW
