New Year Eve!

Daws & Jen roasting mallos by the fire!

Dad chopping wood for zee-fire!

Freezing our booties off as we watched a movie on the side of the house with the projector! It was a very memorable New Years Eve!

That's Dawson, Jenny & Dad all cuddling on the blown up mattress watching a movie! It was SO cold, but SO fun!

Omer Christmas Cousins!

These are all of Abbies cousins on the Omer side, from left to right, Adam, Jacob, Allison, Isaac, Bria & Abigail! She has so much fun with them! You can tell Abby has already started the "I can't sit still....I can crawl!" phase! :D

These 3 were all born within 6 months! They are cute together!

Lots and Lots of Christmas Pictures!

We went up to Utah for our Christmas break! It was a wonderful time being with our family and friends up there! Abigail had snowflakes fall on her head for the first time! In fact, at a pit stop on our drive up, I came out of the gas station and saw Dave with Abby in the snow and Abby had a handful and was eating it! Dave just shrugged and said, "Ah, gotta let her be a kid, right?!"

As you can see how Abby is in almost every picture here, she is simply the highlight of our lives! She is our little bundle of joy! She is such a sweet and happy kiddo! Lately she has taken several steps several times, but has not let it click that she can walk just yet. The time will be soon and then we'll never rest i'm sure! :) We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas full of the spirit and joy of our Savior!

Dave opening his big present! I surprised him real good! The wrapped box looked like it was going to be a Red Ryder BB gun! But I kept telling him he would just shoot his eye out! In the was an RC airplane! He was excited!

Ooo, Abby bit into the orange! What a face! :-S

Patio Update!

Dave had some nice friends come and help set all the stones in cement!
Abby was the supervisor! :) She'd also stop and dance a little jig every once in a while! It was adorable (except for the part where she kept trying to eat rocks! I've told her so many times that she's not a rock biter!) :D
Wow- grouting was A LOT of work! Nice job!
Here is the finished product! Doesn't it look great? It is so nice to have it done! Abby loves to crawl around out there! We still have lots to do on the backyard, but we are doing one project at time. So slowly, our backyard is feeling like it's ours!

Our Thanksgiving was very nice and very yummy! We have so much to be grateful for! Everyone made and brought food that was delish to the max- especially dad's killer turkey, taters and gravy, Heaters excellantay creamed corn and last, but by far the least, Pheobe's home made pies! WOW!

Our friend Brandon came with us that had moved down to Tucson from Idaho just days before Thanksgiving, and my dad had a friend come as well from his work. It was GOOD times! Especially with TurkO!

Abbies first Thanksgiving! She had just finished downing a load of mashed potatoes! They were everywhere! And thus she was happy as can be! :)

Our Back Patio in Progress!

We've been working on our back patio for a while now. Ok, it's mostly Dave, and boy is he doing an amazing job! We've got some gorgeous flagstone out there! Lot's of rain keeps helping us put it off a little here and there. We'll have it done soon and will post more pic then! Who can complain about much needed desert rain?

It's About Time!

(On the beach when we went to L.A. to visit the Tom Omer fam! )
Hello everyone! This has been on my list to do for ages here we go! I hope this blog will be a fun way for family & friends that live far away to be able to stay updated on our family, see Abigail growing via pictures and still feel apart of our lives (and vice-versa). I'll try to keep it updated regularly with fun pictures and short commentary-so put it on your favorites list! Feel free to make comments if you would like. We love & miss you all!

How Fun was Halloween!

We decided to do a Lord of the Rings theme this year...Dave was Gandolf , I was Arwin (the Elf Queen) and Abigail was an Entling (a baby tree)! It was a riot! Enjoy the pictures!
Abby surprised us all by leaving her leaf halo on the entire time she was in costume! On the other hand, the painted leaves on her face didn't quite make it...but her car seat is now holding green memories for us all! :D
