Alex recently turned 9! So hard to believe. All she wanted to do for her birthday was to go climbing at "Poppy's" house. Thanks "Poppy" and Kelly for allowing us to come over.

SweetHeart Tag!

1. What is your Wife's name? Jamie Lyn
2. How long have you guys been married? 12 years this past August
3. How long did you date? Well we actaully first made eyes when I was in 2nd grade Jamie was in 1st, by Mrs. Shezau's fish tanks. Pretty much been a roller coaster ever since.
4. How old is She? 29 last time I checked
5. Who is taller? Big Daddy.
6. Who can sing the best? Neither one of us! Tone Deaf!
7. Who pays the bills? I do! I've been trying to convince Jamie to take over for years!
8. Who does the laundry? 70/30 Me. Washed, dried, folded and put away! Sometimes things turn red, but you get what you pay for.
9. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Well - if you're looking at the bed I do!
10. Who mows the lawn? No lawn... let's keep it that way.
11. Who cooks dinner? Jamie's an awesome cook, but we generally depend on General Mills, Post, etc.
12. Who kissed who first? Jamie would say me, I would have to agree.
13. Who is the first to admit when they're wrong? Well that would probably be me, when you're married to someone whose always right - it's tough.
14. Who wears the pants? Jamie for sure, but I like those Skirts better ;-)

As I'm a loan wolf out in the midst of Blog land I have none to tag...."Please no wolf, Hot lamb.."

tis the SeAsoN...

One thing I was not ready for 12 years ago was the annual Carver, VanZweden Christmas Kick-off Party! This year we focused on bringing to life those sweaters that have been forgotten...
Jamie "Christmas spirit" shinning brightly.
When Uncle Nate showed up we were a little concerned. We actually did a quick internet search:
Our suspicions were confirmed. When his friend "Brandon, no wait Randy" showed up.
Last but not least - the winner of the ugly sweater contest got the "Cake"

Maui.. Need I say more!

~Aloha - Jamie and I just returned from a near perfect trip to Maui. Besides almost getting arrested for Drunk Driving the only bad thing was having to come back to reality. While over there Jamie and I ran in the xterra Mountain race series. It was awesome. Some of the pics below are of the Championship Tri that was held the following day. You always wish you had taken more pictures, but we were to busy seeing huge sea turtles while snorkeling and riding 15 ft waves, drinking Lava Flows and Pure Hawaiian Shaved Ice~
We were over there with my brother and his wife. Until next time! anyone up for a little trip?!
