Fischer James

Fischer has arrived! He was born December 22nd. He weight in at 6 lbs even and was 19 inches long. He came just in time (5:05 pm) to watch the BYU bowl game with his Dad. We Love You Fischer! Mom and Baby are doing well.

I thought this picture of him holding his nose was cute.

Cutest Neighbor Ever!

So I have the cutest little neighbor in the world. Alexis is our neighbor's daughter that lives directly behind us. She is about 7 years old. Anyway tonight as she was bringing treats over she gave Karl the following coupon to give me.

It totally made my day and I couldn't' help but smile in regards to her sweet and innocent generosity. In case you can't read it the coupon says the following:
This coupon is good for:
Help with anything

Rub-a-dub dub, there's a doggie in my tub!

So last night I decided that I would take a nice hot bath. I get the water started, wait for the tub to fill up, and as I'm about to get in I realize I don't have any soap. So went to the closet to grab some and upon my return I found Sadie... leisurely soaking in my bath tub. Guess I'm not the only girl in the house that likes hot baths.

The Painting and the Room

I've had some people wanting me to post a picture of the painting I had done for Karl. My friend Rick Kennington does AMAZING paintings. (You can view his blog for more of his paintings under my contacts-A.R. Kennington) He custom made this painting for me using pictures of Karl fishing, the dog, and adding a little kid. The picture above really doesn't give this painting justice. I love it. Rick is so talented and I was so glad he was willing to do it for me. Rick actually ended up liking it so much he did a slightly different version of it for himself.
Below are some updated pictures of Fischer's room.

The Dogs I Love

So for Christmas Karl got me a Nikon D3000 camera. He gave it to me early so I could learn how to use it before the baby came. Of course I had to have a subject to take pictures so the dogs unknowingly volunteered to be my guinea pigs while I learned the little tricks to my camera. Here are a few shots of the dogs I love.

It's Christmas Time!

I love this time of year when family and friends get together. My sister-in-law Brooke always puts together the cutest little Christmas party complete with Santa and Mrs. Claus. It's weird to think that next year Karl and I will have a little one to place on Santa's knee.
