Happy Christmas!

We had a great Christmas full of family, presents and yummy food! Here are some photos from today.

Carter's bell from Santa's sleigh

I made this blanket for Dave but his best present was custom made canvases (2 20 x 60s and 2 30x40s) that were made by our friend Evan Draper. We are excited to have some new art on our walls. Happy painting Dave!

His "Creature ABCs" book. He loves it and knows all the letters.

A Nintendo 64 for Dave.

Remote control car

Skyping with Grandma and Grandpa Anderson. We also skyped with Grammy and Papa Mann and Fauxma and Fauxpa

I don't look good in the morning, ok?

This Bert was for Carter from my parents. He was mine when I was a baby. It means a lot to me to see Carter hugging him and loving him so much.

Turkish Delight is gross.

He built this all by himself!

Found these today.

While uploading our Christmas pics I found some cute ones I had not yet uploaded. Sorry they are in reverse chronological order.

Carter and Emery reunited after over 2 months of not seeing each other. It started out a little rocky but as you can see it turned out great. Notice he is hugging back!

In line for Santa. He was happy... was happy...

Here we come a caroling

We went caroling to some of our neighbors yesterday with the Philpotts. It was COLD but we had fun.

When we got home we made gingerbread houses. Ours is the basement.

This is so late...

Our friends Rory and Raphelle were in Utah and we got to do our Millie's tradition and visit with them for a little bit. If he looks familiar to any of you that's because he was Dave's mission trainer and was one of his groom's men. We were sad that they moved from Utah right before we moved out here but we definitely love it when they come visit their families!!!
We love you guys!

We went to Iceberg when the family was here and I used Joy's camera to catch some Carter cuteness. I forgot about it until I saw her pictures. Thanks for sending them to me!

We're still here

My goodness. I can't even tell you how long it's been since I sat down and blogged! I just wanted to do some updates on what's going on with us.
  • Carter can almost sing his ABCs and count to 10! Not sure he knows what he's saying but he's saying it!
  • Dave and Brook are training for a half marathon (or a 10K depending how the training goes.)
  • Dave is almost done with this semester and will be taking 2 classes next semester while working on his portfolio for architecture school.
  • Brook passed her life and health insurance exam (old news but I'm still excited about it!)

And now our baby drama:

We stopped using clomid last month thinking that we could only be on it for 6 months and then we'd have to take a year off. Well, when I went to the doctor today she said this was not the case! She told me I could go right back on as soon as I wanted! She also gave me the paperwork and information for IUI (artificial insemination) which we did once when we were trying for Carter. We swore we would never do it again but things change. We are thinking we will do our first try in February. We are both very excited but happy to have a little break to take care of ourselves. We will keep you all updated.

That's it for now. I will try to do better at updating.

Just like daddy!

Luckily it's not broken!

This is Dave's elbow after a fall at basketball last night. He went to the insta care and they say it's fine. Just really gross.
