Porter the Playful

Porter is a very playful little boy.

If he's not playing with Daddy...





He finds ways to play with Mama...



Like standing in her tripod check picture.

He loves when I take out the camera.

Sometimes, he'll even pose for me.



Froggy pose?

He certainly is a smarty-pants...a goofball...and a tease.

He's facinated with everything gadget...

And, he likes to experiment.

He likes to see how far he can go without getting into trouble, and he likes to try new things with his appendiges and vocal chords.

He's just our cute, entertaining, bundle of joy!

Since We've Returned

I have honestly felt like a chicken with its head cut off.

Total cliche, but truth.

I've felt like I need a vacation from my vacation.

Crazy, I know.

Seth and I spent the first week home trying to readjust and catch up to where we left off before the vacation.

Then Porter got sick.

Then the computer crashed.

Then my to-do list just kept getting longer...

...and longer...

...and even though it's initially shorter than it originally was, it's still strangely growing.

Second week home...much of the same thing.

I will catch up.

I hope.

Long Day of Travel



The day before school started, we left for home. Porter was pretty good in he car! I was glad.

We actually got to the airport pretty early...4 hours early, but it was a good thing because we ended up taking about an hour and a half just to get to the gate.
We were still there long enough that Porter got bored. We walked around on the moving sidewalks with him to entertain.
Being the cutie-pie he is, one of the officers couldn't help but offer him a sticker...



Don't be messin' 'round this officer!

We got a window seat on the flight this time, and Porter couldn't stop looking out...


He even fell asleep looking...


Twice!
PS: He's got a new molar

Kenny & Andrea

Seth, Porter, and I travelled to Utah with Clark, LaRene, and Jake.

We had the great opportunity to go to Kenny's and Andrea's wedding!





What a good-looking couple!



We're not too bad either ;)



It was a beatiful ceremony.



Porter did really well in the waiting room, but he was certainly happy when we came to get him...

...but even happier when he saw his uncle Jake!

He kept himself pretty occupied during pictures, too...

On this quick weekend trip, I ran into 5 people I knew! 3 of whom I grew up with, one from Oregon, and one from college!



Kristi!!
She had the pleasure of being around when I actually had my camera with me :)
Her cousin was getting married that same day! Crazy.
Congrats Kenny and Andrea!!

New Years Resolutions 2010

Let's see...what do I want to accomplish this year?
1. Stick to my healthier lifestyle. I find I fall from habits after doing them for a while. I don't think I will this time, but I will make a goal to stick to it anyway.
2. Make time to really ponder what I read in the scriptures. That's a long one. I read and ponder while I read, but after, I don't really give it a whole lot of thought. Maybe if I take some time each day to sort of review what I learned that day, it'll stick with me more.
3. Be punctual. Yup. We're gonna try this one again.
4. Limit time wasted. When I have nothing to do, I sit on the computer...play some games...mainly Farmtown...watch shows online...pretty much any show that interests me, really. I need to have down time, yes, but I dont need hours and hours of it.
I think that's good enough for this year :)
Happy New Year!
