And the Winning City Is?

"I'm from the Lou and I'm Proud" -Nelly

Hopefully that's what I will be saying by the end of next summer. We are on our way to St. Louis, Missouri this summer where Wyatt will be working for APX Alarm. I have to admit that I was super nevous about going here. After a quick google search I found out that it's the #1 most dangerous city in the United States. I was pretty negative about it when I first found out but now I am starting to warm up to the idea. I know that it is only temporary so I just have to look at it like it's an adventure. So...Ready or Not? St. Louis here we come!!!

Happy 1st Birthday Crew Bug!

As crazy as this sounds our little Crew is already 1. We had a cute little celebration for him with family and friends. Crew is so grateful for all his aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents that give him the attention that he needs. Not only have you helped make this the best year of Crew's life but it has also been the best year of our lives. I can't imagine what life would be like without his sweet spirit around. He has changed our lives forever. I am just so grateful to have been blessed with such a great baby who has always slept through the night, has never been too fussy and who has also endured many hours of his moms shopping escapades. Crew you truly are heaven sent. We love you Crew Bug!!!

Weekend in Utah

Family at "Hollywood Connection" for my Grandpa Ethington's 80th Birthday Party
My uncle Aaron and I
Papa took the bugs on another last minute merry-go-round cute : )
Crew was loving this place...he was everywhere!!
He loved playing in the snow with Sam and Erin.

We went on a quick little last minute trip to Utah on business. We had so much fun staying with our good friends Sam and Erin. We miss them so much a wish we lived closer to each other. Our family also had fun spending time with Dallas and Jessica and Mimi and Papa. Thank you to everyone who made this weekend so great. We love you all!

"I Am Your Brother"

For those of you who haven't seen have to take a few minutes to watch this. It is hilarious. This guy auditioned for American Idol last night and this is probably one of the funniest auditions I have ever seen...hope you enjoy it as much as Wyatt and I do...

Happy New Year!!!

We had such a great New Years. We decided to go to California to stay at the Beach House so we could spend some time with my brother and his family. They live up in Sacramento so we aren't able to see them as much as we would like to. We had such a fun trip shopping in Newport, walking around in Huntington Beach and going to Disneyland. We spent all day on New Years at Disneyland. It was such a fun experience. Crew loved it even more this time than last. We were able to see it "snow" there and we danced our way into the new year with our hats and horns they passed out to everyone. What a fun experience we will never forget...Thanks for making our vacation so fun Rick, Kelly, Kendal, Cole, Chris and Carsyn!!! We love you!!

We had such a great Christmas this year. We spent this holiday with Wyatt's family. It was fun having Beegh and Randee home for Christmas. We miss them and very rarely get to see them since they now live in Ohio. We were able to talk to Elder Dannels on the phone and it was neat hearing all of his stories. It is so crazy that he is coming home this YEAR! It also was fun having some of our friends here for the holidays and seeing them as well. Crew had a great 1st Christmas and was spoiled by his Nana, Papa, Mimi and Papa and his parents. He has so many new fun toys to play with that he can never decide which one to use. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope everyone had a great New Year!
