To add to it all...

So, I got a text this morning about 8:10am while I was working. It was from Mike and it said "guess who got pulled over again?" I was hoping with everything I had that it wasn't him. We weren't that lucky though. Mike was speeding to work this morning, not because he was going to be late, just because 'if you ain't first you're last'!! So a cop pulled him over. He questioned Mike on the tint on our car and also for speeding. He was going 25 over this time. You'd think he'd learn. Lucky for him though the cop was having a good day and let him go with just a warning. I'm going to have to buy him a pos car that CAN'T speed!!

Merry Christmas to us!!

So it all began one day Mike and I were on our way to Park City. We wanted to hit up the outlets, dinner, and make it in time to watch The Office. This was all within like 2 hours-pretty impossible, we know!! But we were going through Provo canyon and going too fast. We came up to these two cars and one decided she didn't want us going fast so she cut us off. We tailed her until she got over, then off we went again. When we came up to the tunnel there was a white car at the end of it just waiting for someone like us to come speeding past! It was a sheriff. So, we slowed down and pulled over, the cop was behind us and the dumb lady who didn't want us to pass her was behind the cop. She came and tattled on us and then left. The cop came and had Mike get out of the car to talk to him. Mike got out and the cop was pretty darn rude to him. He told him that nothing mattered and anything he said wouldn't matter then asked him if he had anything to say. Mike just stood there and said nothing. The cop kept asking if there was anything. Mike reminded him that he told him it didn't matter. So, the angry cop made us wait 30 min to write out our ticket. He came and gave it to us, we were going 33 over and also got charged for reckless driving. Mike had to go to court and get a lecture and they told him how much the ticket would be. Mike just plead guilty and the sentence was given. Either 210 days in jail or $1,100. I thought it would be a good lesson for him to go to jail but we opted out on the fine. So, that is our Christmas presents to eachother this year!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Mike has to dress up each year for Halloween and he is getting more and more clever each year. He was so excited for me to take pictures so I could put it on the blog!! I think he's excited to hear everyone's reactions!! The tag says To: Women From: God- aka "God's gift to women"! He's such a funny boy!! I think he would wear it everyday if I'd let him!

Park City

The whole Draper family went to Park City for a week and had tons of fun!!! We stayed in the Marriott and really just relaxed, went shopping and played lots of games!!

Staci, Mom, Erin holding Joel in the room. Just enjoying Sunday afternoon!!
Mike on the 4-wheeler. The guys were out for hours and hours and hours and had so much fun!
Joel, Morgan and Celeste. Joel thought it was pretty cool although he wouldn't smile!!
Morgan and Ryan in the pool. It was "heated" but still cold since it was outdoors.
Mike (being modest for us all) and Ryan in the hot tub. All the boys spent a lot of time in the pools and playing ping pong. I really didn't see much of my husband that week!!! It was lots and lots of fun though!!

Mike and Dylan

Mike and Dylan (and Tyler) are best buds!! Mike (and I) can't get enough of them!! It is like we are addicted to them, their smiles, laughs, everything about them!! We are in complete love with them!! (note:they are not our children) Mike and I went up to their house one sunday evening to play with them! We went on a little walk and make snowballs and then went to the airport to get my mom and dad. Dylan could not get enough of the escalators and so Mike played with him on them going up and down for about 45 minutes while we waited!! It was so cute! He has some of the cutest facial expressions we have ever seen!! We love you boys!!

The Circus!!!!
