Quick Update

Well, it's been a good year so far. I can't believe it is already February. Time is sure speeding by. My family and a couple friends and I have started an 8 week fitness challenge, found here. We are into our second week now, and I am feeling great. I have more energy from working out, I am totally paying attention to what I eat, and I feel a big difference! I have only lost a couple of pounds so far, but I think I am losing "inches" and adding muscle. Hopefully I can stick with it. I am using for tracking my calories, and it has been 30 days since I started doing it, and I haven't missed one day!!

Trevor is busy with school. This is his last semester. He can't wait to be finished. He is planning to continue to landscape once he is done. I am so proud of him for actually sticking with it!

Tyler is getting so big. We went to his Asthma doctor last week. He is just over 41 inches tall now and weighs 37 pounds. He loves Power Rangers, Avengers and Spiderman. He loves to draw/ color, is very good at counting, and wants to know how to spell everything. He can spell Tyler, Mom, Dad and Fox without any help. I just can't believe he is almost 4. We cancelled out his naps a couple of weeks ago because he would not go to bed at night, and he has been going to sleep before 8:00 every night since. It has been great. Most nights, he will be asleep within 5 minutes of us reading stories. It used to be up to 45 minutes sometimes. What a nice change. I actually get some time to myself in the evenings now, which is good for exercising!

Christmas and What Not

Well, another Christmas has come and gone, and it was a good one. Tyler was old enough this year to really get the idea of Santa. He was so excited every time he would see him anywhere, and run over to talk to him. He wrote his first letter to Santa, which we mailed, and he received a really nice letter and some stickers and stuff in return. He was so happy when he got the return letter. He was very specific about what he wanted. He especially wanted a new sword. He saw Santa at our Ward Christmas party at the beginning of December and told him about the sword he wanted. About a week before Christmas, he was sitting on our bed and says "Santa sure is taking his time with my new sword". Trevor and I both thought it was so funny.

We spent the Holidays down in Welling at my family's house. Everyone was there over the holidays. It was so fun to see everyone. Jen and Dan weren't going to be coming, but my Grandma passed away on Boxing Day, so they were able to make it down for the funeral. It was nice to all be together, even if for such a sad occasion. I was sad to see my Grandma go, but am glad she is able to be with Grandpa again. I know they are happy together.

It is nice to be home again, and back in a routine. Trevor started back to school on the 2nd of January, which was pretty early, not that they have really done much over the last week. I came back to work yesterday, and it is nice to be busy again all day.

I haven't posted much lately because my Picasa account is full apparently. I can't post any pictures until I do something about it I guess, which kind of discouraged me about posting. Anyways, just thought I'd let you all know we are doing great and having fun together.
