Lubbock, Texas Temple

Nothing very new or exciting happening. Brad is busy studying and so far loves law school. Carter is so funny and we have fun everyday. We still don't have very many name ideas for our little girl on the way if anyone has any ideas!? Other wise life is going great, we like Texas so far!

Well we are still unpacking and I have not found the camera cord yet, but I thought I would write something anyway. We love our little house it is cute and has more room than I hoped it would so it is great. We have had a thunder storm almost every other night which is a nice change from the Arizona never ending heat. Carter is adjusting well, but he calls Grandma everyday to tell her some random but very important fact about his life, sometimes he calls twice a day. He is so cute and getting so big I can't believe it! I think most people know by now but we are excited for our baby girl to come in a few months too. Brad starts school tomorrow so he is going to be super busy but I am glad he is starting because he is that much closer to being done. Anyways, hopefully pictures will be coming soon!

It is hard to believe that Carter will be two tomorow! This is the picture of him coming home from the hospital. Carter is such a blessing in our life and to everyone else too. His laugh is the most perfect thing you can ever hear! He is so cute when he wants something because he will give you hugs and kisses until he gets what he wants! He loves to make castles out of the couch and blankets. He loves to play with Grandma. He loves to sing with Dad. He is talking so much now it is hard to remember a time he couldn't talk. He is mostly healthy, he is having some problems with his reflux again and his milk alergies. But he is so tall and big you would never know the health roller coasters he has had. He is the love of my life!

California Tip

Carter loved to squish Brad's sand castles
Already Burned!
A big wave took them by surprise
One of the few animals not asleep at the San Diego Zoo

Getting Warm
I am a wimp when it comes to cold water
Carter loved the water!

Brad's Uncle's beautiful beach house in Carlsbad
Our California trip was wonderful! I love the peaceful relaxing feeling when you are at the beach. It was Carter's first big trip and he did great the whole time. I am so grateful Brad's Uncle let us use his awesome house!

Well Easter was nice this year, but sadly Carter was really sick. He woke up Saturday morning saying Easter! Easter! We should have given him his stuff right then, because by Saturday afternoon he had 103 fever and was throwing up. This lasted all night and all Sunday. But he was a pretty good sport and by Sunday night he was actually enjoying his bucket with shovels that he got. General Conference was really great as well. Hope our little buddy is feeling better tomorow!

Carter and Ryden at the Museum

Vanilla Cookie Monsters
The Boat Bed

Too busy for pictures

Picking the Corn

Cutest Smile Ever!
I am so glad to have some good friends in this ward you keep me sane with play dates. The Mesa Children's Museum is perfect for Carter's age. He loves it so much leaving is the only hard part of the day! He is really excited for Easter, we have been playing with plastic eggs all week. His chalk got burried in a whole when a water pipe was being fixed( it was dark and how was Brad supposed to know he had thrown it in there) but Carter tells me everyday that the Easter Bunny is going to bring him some chalk, but not just white he wants colored chalk! He remembers everything I say! Which is only a good thing sometimes!

I would really like to start making cakes again, so I thought I would post some pictures of cakes I made last year. If you know anyone who needs a cake you should let them know I make them for really cheap and they are always yummy! I can make all kinds, sizes, and flavors. Thanks!
