My First Post

While I am feeding Kate, Ashley likes to do all sorts of things, one being giving us all a "hat" to wear

My butterfly and cute little pea in a pod.
Here are some pictures that we have taken recently. We finally had our own little family pictures on Saturday. We should have them back sometime this week so I am excited to see how they turned out. We are having a great time here in Arizona. Chad is working hard and I am working hard at spending all the money:)

Ashley loves her new little sister. They have a lot of fun together. Katelyn is smiling and recognizing us, such a fun age. She is so sweet. I love to beable to stay home with them. We hope that everyone has a very Merry Christmas:)

I am new to blogging so parden me for the mistakes in advance. It can't be that difficult can it?

Steven & Gabe in Nativity Presentation.

Steven was an angel who played the guitar in the neighborhood pageant on Saturday night the 8th. Joe, Ron and Todd went over and pronounced it well down in every aspect. Gabe was one of the Wise Men.

Jenn's Shower

This weekend in Provo, Jenn had two wedding showers. The first on Friday night (November 30th)was an Oldham Shower. Richard's dad is the middle of 7 boys, plus a sister. All the Oldham brothers started, have grown and run a printing business called Liberty Press. Each boy has stayed in the area and had lots of kids. Richard is one of 62 cousins that are within 10 years of his age on either side. Each time someone gets engaged, the family sponsers a shower with uncles, aunts, and cousins getting together to celebrate and give the engaged couple wedding gifts. The family first had a potluck dinner with beautifully decorated tables which Richard's mother put together. She is an extremely talented artist. (I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of the tables, I thought about it later). Since Richard and Jenn are getting married during Christmas time, all gifts were placed under a tree. The whole family gathered round, had Jenn and Richard tell their engagement story and then they opened gifts.
Saturday, Melanie and Katie sponsered a shower for all of Jenn's school friends, plus some of my favorite guests were Denae and Saren. They drove down to Provo in a snow storm to support Jenn which I thought was pretty neat

Checking out BYU Idaho

Laurie drove Steven, GAbe and a friend, Amanda Floto up to Rexburg to look over the campus and assess the housing situation. Reed was happy to see them and show them around. STeven thinks that he could enjoy going to school there.
