The crazy girl on the left turned 16 today. That would be my niece Tia. They grow up so fast, time flies, it seems like just yesterday, blah blah blah, insert your nostalgic cliches here. They're all true. She's an amazing kid/teen/almost young adult - she's beautiful inside and out, smart, athletic, responsible, and kind. She's the kind of kid that gives teenagers a good name. Unlike her sister. Haha just kidding, Bailey. You're awesome too.

I've been obsessed with the Rubik's Cube the past few days. I used to know how to solve it when I was younger, but my memory - like so many other things - has deteriorated with age. I played with it for a long time this weekend until I was close to solving it, but then I got stuck. I put it on my night table while I slept and tried to figure it out when I woke up during the night. Dale was not pleased about waking up to the click click of the cube. Eventually I asked my brother to help, but he was rusty as well so he found me a website that could help. Before Spencer went to bed tonight, I told him I'd pay him $5 if I couldn't solve it by the time he woke up tomorrow. Thankfully the online instructions were easy to follow and I FINALLY solved it. I feel like it's sort of cheating and I'll have to practice a few times until I can do it all by myself, but I'm calling it a victory. This is an awesome self-portrait; I took about 20 pictures and this was the best one.
