Here are some pictures from when we went to Saint George, UT over New Years. It was nice to get to some warm weather. We even got to do some Mountain Biking. This is up Snow Canyon, in a really pretty slot canyon. The one picture is Lucas with Betsy's brother Adam. It was a great trip. Betsy's parents and brother came with us and we had a wonderful time. Betsy wants to move there (or someplace warm/hot/scorching like Saint George), I think it would be a good place to visit in the winter.
I saw these pictures that Betsy took and I didn't know how I could get rid of all of these faces. As you can see we love our little boy and think he's the best. I hope I don't get in trouble for putting pictures of my naked boy on the web!! I'm sure in 16 years he'll appreciate that everyone in the world saw him in the bath tub.

These are our family pictures that were taken over Thanksgiving. What a blessing it is for us to have each other. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of how blessed we are. My wife and each of our kids, help complete my life in a way that I never would have dreamed. Family is meant to bring us happiness and joy, and mine does it so completely.
Lucas sure looks like he loves his sister, huh? I don't think that is a choke hold, or at least I hope not.
Lucas had a ritual of putting all of his balls in his crib to go to sleep, and as you can tell he has lots of balls. We couldn't resist taking a picture of him and his bedtime buddies. In fact sometimes when we forgot to take them out in the middle of the night, he would wake up and cry cause he couldn't find a place to lie back down.
So, I finally decided to update our blog some. I will try to get some pictures up. I will refrain from doing them all at once, that way you all can appreciate them more!! It's weird posting images of Lily from when she was just born cause she has changed so much. Betsy has also, she has lost almost all of the weight from pregnancy and is pounding out some serious miles running. I am so excited to have my workout buddy back. We went running the other night and I had a hard time keeping up with her. I would never have been able to if I was the one that had had to go through pregnancy, delivery, and recovery. She is amazing.
Lucas is doing well with Lily, when she cries sometimes, he just points his finger at her and very sternly says, "NO, NO, NO". But he will be a great big brother, we are just doing our best trying to balance the two.
