utah is miserable. the dryness hurts my skin and throat, the coldness hurts my feet and my overall happiness. i'm ready to not live in utah ever again. however, one of the great things about utah is living close to family, such as this one. yesterday i witnessed what i perceived to be a sincere heartfelt birthday wish, or maybe jeff was silently blessing the cake. then lukedrake attempted to make it into everyone's picture. and then it was play time with this little miss whose poor little eye is still very poor looking. poor thing.
