Golden Spike

Yesterday we went to the Golden Spike visitor center. It was really cool to see the trains and learn a little bit of history. It was freezing but we had a great time.


I got the coolest new camera for Chritmas! It has video recording and takes great pictures. Please enjoy our cute little baby.


This year for Christmas we stayed in Ogden. David, Kaye, Chandler and I had a fabulous Christmas eve! We had tiny spicy chicken, read the story of Christ's birth, and watched a movie. On Christmas morning we woke up to gifts galore (mostly for Channy). Later that day we had prime rib. It was a fantastic Christmas.

Silly Little Boy

Today while I was cleaning up lunch Chandler was playing with his toys in the front room. When I came in he had pulled himself up on the entertainment center and was playing with the movies. Just yesterday I moved them thinking that he couldn't do that, what do I know. He also loves to grab the camera when I am taking pictures of him, you have to be quick to get a good shot.

Lucky Ducky

I know you have all heard of the "Italian Stallion", but have you heard of the Lucky Ducky? We got the cutest little bath robe from our friends Gordon and Michelle and Chandler loves it. He is just the cutest little guy!

Chandler and the Christmas tree.

This being the Christmas season we have our tree set up and ready for Santa! Chandler loves it! He loves to climb underneath and look at all of the lights. He also loves to eat the ornaments and our Christmas boots. At first I was freaking out not letting him near the tree, but now I just let him (he can't hurt the 6 dollar ornaments anyway). We love Christmas and can't wait for December 25th!

Thanksgiving Photos

Here are some pictures from Thanksgiving.

Thankful Thanksgiving

This year we spent Thanksgiving in San Juan county. We arrived Wednesday afternoon and relaxed from our 6 hour drive. The next day we had a not so typical Thanksgiving. It all began in the morning when we set up the Nativity scenes and ate a delicious breakfast. After everyone was awake and moving we ventured west to Moki dug way where we hiked to the nativity ruin. We had a short devotional and headed back to our vehicles where a delicious lunch of honey baked ham and yummy potatoes was waiting. We finished our adventure with a drive through Valley of the Gods. Upon arriving home David, Chandler and I had a wonderful evening with the Palmers and their homemade pies (Kim's lemon pie rocks!). Friday we had our perfect Thanksgiving feast. Turkey, potatoes, yams, green bean casserole and pie. That evening we played games and watched movies. Saturday we celebrated 2ND Christmas (2ND Christmas is a tradition of David's family where we have a treasure hunt, sometimes it is called Indian Christmas). We also had a yummy dinner of homemade Rafe Rio! That night we packed up and left bright and early Sunday morning. It was a wonderful holiday. It is great to know we have such wonderful family that loves us so much!

The other day I was feeding Chandler some yummy purnes and chatting on the phone with an interested rentie. Durning this rare multitasking event the rentie asked me to jot down his phone number. Having to walk across the room for a peice of paper I decided to just sit the prunes on the edge of the high chair. I quickly stood up and found the paper. I jotted the number down and this is what I came back to.............. Disaster! Prunes were everywhere. On the floor, the wall, the counter tops! Who would have thought Chandler could reach so far. Well I guess we live and learn!

Three years and counting.
