Per request...

Super quick rundown of the last month and a half and then lots of fun pics.

New job is going great. I like it even though it's been really tough to keep up with everything. Brent's work is suffering although he has cut back some. Part of the difficulty has been because of a terrible month of sickness. We spent our Christmas break running to the bathroom and doing lots of extra laundry.

Christmas day we tried to go see a movie but Amelia's moaning got us kicked out. Talk about embarrassing. And miserable.

We finally got our kitchen installed, thanks to the competent and generous Denny Vincent. It's good being related to the highly-skilled. To make sure I'm not taking advantage (I did pay, but I'm sure his time was worth a lot more), I'm referring furiously. Anyone need the best contractor/handyman in Utah County?

Oh, Amelia's birthday party right after Thanksgiving turned into an impromptu family reunion. There was one cousin there I hadn't seen in more than 10 years, and another I hadn't seen in about 6. It was awesome to see everyone.

Amelia finally got a couple of teeth (after she turned 1) - she now has 3 and another pretty close. She's still not walking.

Felix is just a little crackpot. He's working on potty training with gentle nudging from his grandparents and parents. He'll now tell us when he wants to go pee and he'll often take off his diaper so he can go.

Both kids have so much personality and constantly make us laugh.

Enjoy the pics!

Finally, an update! Thank you, Heather, it's nice to hear from the Familius :)

I love the pictures. Amelia is getting so big now, it's almost scary.

Amazing kitchen! Does he fix french doors that have a huge gap that lets in the cold air? Cause if so...how much and when can he come over?

I'll ask him about the doors. He's pretty amazing...

Whose bird?

The bird is Brent's brother's family's bird. I think they're trying to get rid of it. Interested?
