Lots of Updates

I guess it is about time to post an update (thanks for the reminder Amy and Scott). Of course a lot has happened since the last post. Audrey is home and doing great. She was 9 lb. 2 oz. at the last doctor visit. Trevor started first grade, Logan is nearly potty trained and Kayson turned two. Unfortunately, we don't have many pictures from the last couple of months because our digital camera broke and our camcorder LCD screen displays upside down (it can be frustrating trying to film something that way). So the few pictures below were taken by April's brother Michael.

In October we went with many of April's relatives to Zion's National Park. It was a lot of fun. Here is a picture of Trevor and Elissa on top of the world.

Here are several of the cousins.

Wait a minute! One of those cousins looks like aunt Char! We went on a couple of hikes, and all that walking made Audrey really thirsty. Here she is enjoying good food and good company.

Logan earned the nickname Lizard Logan on this trip. On one of our hikes he was holding Grandpa's hand. I said, "That's a cool lizard holding your hand, Grandpa." Logan looked around then about 30 seconds later he started laughing and said, "No, Dad. I'm not a lizard; I'm Logan!" Here's a clip of him showing off his reptilian side.

After our trip we celebrated April's grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed being with them to recall and retell the memories. They are an excellent example for all of their posterity. Since they didn't have a wedding cake when they were married, they finally cut one 60 years later.

Lastly, we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We have been very blessed this year and when we count our many blessings we count our family first.
