What's up with W.J.

A rare sight in W.J. (I thought this picture would be a little bigger!)


O.k. so this is my second winter spent in W.J. and I have yet to see a snow plow coming down my street. Now normally when it snows we get a couple of inches here and there and so I think "big deal" if our street doesn't get plowed it's really not that much snow. Well in the last two days I think was have gotten at least a foot and half of snow, and no snow plow. I drive a pretty good car in the snow, however, I am not sure how Brett in his little civic, is going to make it off our street. So what's the deal? Why no snow plows? I heard about cut backs because of the economy, but last I check I still pay the same amount of taxes, they haven't let us cutback. Then today for some reason we decided to go out, I know not the best idea, and not even the major streets are plowed. 7800 S. was horrible. We saw one snow plow and he wasn't even plowing he was putting down salt on a street that was covered in snow. I don't get it. I have lived in many cities over the valley and W.J. is by far the worst at plowing their streets. Oh boy I needed to get that off my chest. I feel better now!

Santa Claus

Yesterday we went to South Towne Mall to see Santa Claus, well after fighting the traffic, chasing William everywhere, spilling our drink, and taking Will potty three plus times we were unable to see him. See we got there at 12:30 and apparently they close the line at 12:30 so Santa can go "feed the Reindeer" from 1:00 to 1:45. So o.k. we thought great well let the kids go play in the little playground area for awhile. At 1:20 we decided to stand in line, well the line was long. We probably would have had to wait another hour before seeing Santa. At that point I was done and the kids had been done for awhile. So we left. And oh boy my kids were NOT happy with me.
Can I just say right here I really hate the Mall. Why do you have to go to the mall to see Santa, surely there must be an easier way. I tried so hard to avoid the mall and now I was going to have to go back another day! So today we decided for try number two (well actually three thanks to the big snowstorm on Saturday) as we were driving over to South Towne I heard on the radio that they were having a concert there right then. There was no way I was going to that mall during some concert so we decided to go over to Fashion Place Mall instead. It was great we waited for one person in front of us to see Santa. I think I might be done with South Towne. Anyways here are some pictures I took, since I am way too cheap to buy any. Unfortunately they only let you take two of your own pictures. Maybe next year Kyanna won't cry.

Snow! Snow! Snow!

So I don't know if it snowed anywhere else today (Brett said it did not in West Valley) but here we got a good, oh I don't know, 20 minutes of snow this morning. Well Kyanna has been dying to wear her snow outfit for many many weeks now. I keep telling her that we have to wait until it snows. So this morning, without thinking about it, I said "look Kyanna it's snowing" well she ran back into her room and immediately started to put on her snow pants. She put on the snow pants, her socks, shoes, and jacket with absolutely no help from me. And then she runs into my room and says "I am ready to go outside". By that time it had completely stopped snowing and had already melted. But we went outside anyways to try it out. And luckily while she was running around in all that gear she fell on the grass so uhm...lucky we had the snow pants on!
