Everyone is coming HOME!!!

I'm so excited because starting tomorrow everyone is coming home! Kade and Kort will be home by dinner time (whoohoo), Kal and Lacy will be home late, so we won't see them until Saturday and Kent is coming on Sunday. On Tim's side, Rachel, Coralee, Landon and Braylon are flying in tomorrow night and Steve is coming on Wednesday! It will be so much fun (and crazy) to have so much family in town at one time!! We can't wait!

Kylan & Baby Evan

Today we got to watch for a couple hours this adorable little boy Evan. He is Leah's (Kade's girlfriend) little boy and he is so easy going and fun to watch! He is only 9 months old and is about as big as Kylan and loves to watch everything Kylan does. Ky is really good with him, until I have to give him a bottle and get him to sleep, then he gets a little jealous, but he better get used to it!!! We LOVE baby Evan (that's what Ky calls him)!

Our Gas Fireplace



After a month of waiting our gas fireplace is finally up and working today! I absolutely love it!!! Within a half hour my whole living area was nice and warm and after only a few hours of having it on it had even warmed up the bedrooms and hallway!! I guess the waiting while the gas company put their line in (we don't have any other gas appliances, so had to have a new gas line put in), then our plumber to do their part and then the final meter installation today was well worth it! Thank you mom and dad for the early Christmas present, now we will be nice and warm all winter!!

P.S For those of you wondering, it is a ventless gas fireplace with a blower. The front part gets hot, but the rest doesn't which makes it so that you don't have to have it on tile or some other heat resistant surface, in fact you can put it on carpet. It's awesome and I would highly recomment it to anyone wanting a fireplace without having to do much except get the gas line ran to where you want to put it! It also puts a out A LOT more heat than the ventless electric fireplaces do.

Panicking

Just noticed I'm less than 100 days from having the baby! I'm panicking just a little bit! Second pregnancies go by way too fast!!!

My Little Chef

video

My uncle John got this really cute cooking set for Reed and Carissa, and Lynne and Derild gave it to us for Kylan. I've had them for awhile, but kind of forgot about them, so I got it out today for him and he has loved "cooking" his roll and eating it. He took the stuff to the stove all by himself. I went and got him his stool because he kept pushing everything back too far and couldn't reach it! Hopefully I can get the video to load so that you can see how cute he is and how well he is talking (for a boy)! If not though, here are some still shots of him cooking!

Looking on the Bright Side . . .

Well, some of the results may not have been what I wanted, but the great thing is . . . NO MORE POLITICAL ADS!!!! for a couple years! While Tim was in Canada the Stead family told them that in Canada they will see things on TV for only 2 weeks prior to elections and then that's it. This is one of the few times you will hear me, or see me write this, but I wish we were more like Canada in that respect! Another good thing was that our local elections went really well! Just keep looking on the bright side:)

We Voted

We did our duty and voted today - well, Kylan just helped mom. He liked when the paper ticked printed at the side of the screen to review how you voted. He also liked his "Future Voter" sticker the nice ladies gave him.

P.S. I feel sorry for any of you in big cities who have to wait in long lines. We are so spoiled here!!
