Christmas Activities

We did some fun Christmas things this weekend. On Friday night, we went up to the Temple to see the lights. Its amazing what they do. They have a live nativity going for a few hours every night. Its pretty cool.

Saturday night was our ward Christmas party. Christopher had a lot of fun sitting on Santa's lap (if you look close, you might just recognize santa)

Last night we opened some presents from Grandma and Grandpa before we leave for Utah. Thanks G&G!!!

Theo and our baby surprise

Theo says, "Whatz up?" as he plays with my jewelry.
He loves to line up his little people.

To all those who don't know yet, we are having a baby girl in February.  It was our Thanksgiving surprise for much of Jared's family.  I think the biggest reaction we got from anyone was from Theo's great grandma Doot.  Oh, and even though Theo is unhappy in this pic, he really is happy to have a new baby sister.

Three Months Old

So, our little Chris is already three months old!! We can hardly believe it!

He really enjoys sitting up on our laps. He loves to just look at everything.

He is smiling all the time now, we LOVE it!
Christopher just keeps growing and growing!! It is so much fun to see him learn and grow every day!

Our ward turkey bowl

Our ward held its annual turkey bowl a week ago in preparation for Thanksgiving. Tim was the MVP. Here are just a few of my favorite pictures of him. Perhaps Michigan sh0uld've asked him to start for them this year seeing as he completed more passes in one game than Threet and Sheridan completed all season. Here's hoping that next year will be a better year for Michigan once they have more practice.

I don't know if I would want to go up against Tim.

The many faces of Mya...

Yo...what's up? You lookin' at me?

This is the face she gives us when she doesn't know what we are doing. Needless to say...we get the face a lot.
Her stare. Look at those blue eyes.

She smiles a lot these days. Tim finally caught it on camera.

We always put pictures on our blog, Be sure to check it out if you want to see more Mya.


This past weekend I got to go to Zion's National Park with some friends. It was so much fun and it was beautiful. And the weather was perfect, it was nice to be outdoors. We hiked Angel's Landing, and these are some pictures from it.

On our way up to the top
Me and Jen at the top
The view. Pretty spectacular.

Official Peanut News Flash

We finally found it! The long lost trophy. It is ready for the next winning team. It seems that we need some tournament rules - teams, number of rounds, etc. Any volunteers? Looking forward to some great games...Mackinaw will guard it until it is won!

Theo helping his dad

Theo loves computers! Is anyone surprised?
At least he reads the instructions first, which many of us don't do.

Fun Times

Christopher loves watching football with his dad. Here he is calling "TOUCHDOWN" last Saturday. Can you see how excited he is??Christopher and Piper have been hanging out a lot lately while their dads have been studying for finals. Here they are at the Zoo last weekend. It was a really nice day.

Christopher had his two month appointment last Friday. He got his first round of shots, but like his shirt says, he was a tough guy. He is a champion in the weight department. He now weighs 12 lbs, 2 oz! He also grew an inch since his last appointment two weeks ago, so he's up to 23 1/2 inches long. What a big boy!

Isn't this a funny picture? I just happened to snap the picture when he had his arm up, so he looks like he is totally lounging. How cute.
