Once There Was A Snowman...

So, I should probably blog...or something…

We've had a few changes around the G. household, in that we've added two new members. (And no, I AM NOT PREGNANT! Stopping asking! Geesh…rude.) Shall we meet the first one?

This is the Snowman…


…with his adorable girlfriend (who shall be known as Snowgirl). In all fairness, he was fighting off bronchitis when he fell asleep during a movie. And snored. Really loud. So we just had to take a picture. And post it on Facebook.

The Snowman is my nephew. He moved out here to Utah to live with us while working and saving before he goes on his mission (not LDS? Go here.) next summer. So why do I call him the Snowman, other than his utter lack of skin pigment? Because he works at a local ski resort and will freeze his skinny bum off. (And just between you and me? Another reason he's here is so I can fatten him up because that boy has no body fat. Poor thing lacks an insulating layer.)

Per his mother's instructions, Snowman has one night a week when he makes dinner. It's rather nice…I might have to let more people move in just so I can give them a night to cook, too. Among his other talents are his ability to be so quiet we forget he's here, communicating with the outside world purely by text, speed-reading all my books, and giving Baby someone to blame whenever anything goes wrong.

Any words of advice for the Snowman?

No words of advice. But you are very nice. Letting people stay with you and what not. Though I'd consider letting someone stay with me if they would cook once a week. Sounds like a pretty good deal. Got any cooks who need a place to stay?

OOOOO someone else to cook once a week?? Sounds amazing!

Do you have another nephew that you could lend to me? I would love to have someone come and cook for me one day a week!!! :) Enjoy your snowman!!!

Way cool that you let him move in.

As far as advice goes, I would say to him to make sure he saves as much money as he can. :)

Kristie - well, I do have a few more nephews, but none of them that are as willing to cook. Now, if I can just get him to get the kids ready for school, then I'd have it made!
