Our Little Family

A couple weeks ago we had our first family pictures taken! We're so lucky to have the Williams out here in Arizona, and grateful that Joy is willing to share her talent with us! Thank you Joy...We love them!

Adventures in Walking! Football! and Halloween!

West took his first step a couple months ago and it seemed like he was happy enough with that for a while. Then he really started to get courageous a few weeks ago and he could walk all the way across the room if tempted by ice cream. Now he's a pro...and he LOVES it! He can bend down, pick things up, and keep going, and the second video shows another talent! He will just walk around forever checking things out. He's so curious about everything and now he can get to so much more...so much faster:)

Just your standard walking...

Taking it to the next level...

He loves putting things over his head. It's usually clothes or a blanket, but he discovered this bowl and it fits perfectly!

Go 49ers! Well, they didn't win, but they did pretty well and we had a blast. Eric was pretty excited to get to see Alex Smith and the new Crabtree in action. Eric bought tickets to the game on Ebay and we thought we'd take Weston with us (I don't know what we were thinking...the last time we took him to a sporting event he was much less mobile.) Anyway, a couple days before the game we found out that you can't take babies to the game even if you are crazy enough. So I was going to stay home and sell my ticket, but it turned out that some friends of ours want to go to a Broncos game in December so we arranged to swap babysitting and I got to go!! Thanks Mike and Laura!

And finally, we failed as parents this Halloween. Weston was a darling tiger, but the only picture I got was on my phone. At our ward party, he started screaming like something was hurting him so I tore his costume off trying to figure it out and never got a picture (I think he was just tired and hated the fact he was wearing shoes) Anyway, he had a little face paint and I did manage to get a picture of it before his bath...

That's about as good as it got with this wiggly guy!

Happy 30th Anniversary!

I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary to my wonderful parents and I'm so grateful I've gotten to be part of 26 of their 30 years together! I love you both!

My sister photshopped this picture from their wedding to send to them and a bunch of their friends today and I thought it was TOO GREAT not to share!
