Getting Cozy

Getting Will up from his nap-- Daddy version:

How Will feels about sharing his crib:

The End.

Cutest Baby in the World

Baby Will has his own theme song.  (With Grant and me as his parents, really... are you surprised?)  While we love to make up silly songs, we're rarely patient enough to write much more than one line.  So I guess you could say we love to write jingles instead of songs.

Building Baby's Room: Part 7

Will loves his room.  (Well, he hasn't complained...).  The bedding turned out great.  I love how all of the fabrics look together & the colors work well.  The bumper turned out a little too big... and I've been too lazy to fix it, hence the overlapping corner.  But that corner allows Catan, Will's sock monkey, to look over him while he sleeps.

Reunited and it Feels So Good

We headed to Utah for the weekend.  I counted a grand total of 40+ people that we managed to visit in two days...

We saw nearly half of those people Friday night at a Provo staple, Brick Oven Pizza.  Out of the 12 members from Apartments 1810 and 2310 (plus one adopted member), 10 were able to make it to our grand reunion.  It was awesome.

These guys are awesome.  I talked a little bit about them here.  I spent three years at BYU.  The first year was with these folks, the second year spent driving to dance in Salt Lake every day, and the third year married.  So as far as friends go, they constitute the bulk of my experience.  And I couldn't have asked for a better group of friends.

It is exciting to see how our "family" is changing.  Will is the only baby so far, but we've added quite a few spouses and significant others.  I can't wait for our next reunion.  The attendance will dwindle with the years I'm afraid.  Perhaps we'll have to make the next one even more exciting... destination reunion?!

Preview of Will's Room

The room is done.  Mostly.  But it is also filled with unhung picture frames and a twin bed that threatens to become a permanent fixture.  (It's just a little too handy).  

So until things are a little tidier, enjoy this snippet of Will's room.  Everything is homemade. Except the crib... and the sticks.  Some tree made those.

Family Hiking

McFarlands came to visit!  For one of our jaunts around town, we took them to our favorite local hiking spot, Roxborough.  We were greeted by a handful of deer.  

We see deer everywhere here.  It feels like home.  It makes me happy.

We're home!  We had an excellent 5-day stay in Texas.  Will & I visited Denton to see TWU friends, Colleyville to see Pat Riddle School of Dance friends, and Grapevine to visit church friends!  It was awesome.  I managed to take a grand total of 0 pictures... So instead, here are a few oldies from hanging out at Mumsie's house.

Blizzardy Blizzard

It's supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow... blizzard style...

Will & I are supposed to leave for Dallas tomorrow...

Bad combo...

So say your prayers for an uneventful trip.

And in the meantime, picture cute babies in the snow.
