It has defiantly been a busy year for our little family. It has had its ups and downs, but we try to stay up as much as possible. Emily, Lynnlee and I are doing great.
Lynnlee is getting so big! Emily and I love to see her discover new things. Her latest love has been throwing things in the bathtub. I think it is hilarious to catch her in the act because she always give me the same funny face as she attempts to flee the scene of the crime. She is loving being a big girl and getting to eat real food, and she even like the baby food meats. She loves trying to help Mom and Dad with their home work and always know just what button to push to lock up any computer.
Emily and I started our spring semester and things are going wellds. We are both making a more effective effort to get our homework done in an orderly fashion and not stress. We often feel like there is not enough time in the day, but hey there will be an end if we just keep pushing forward. I am still working the night shift at Walmart here in Rexburg, so I am tired all the time, but Emily not having to work and being able to be with Lynnlee is worth it.
So now for our TOP 10 of 2012. I am the one that put these events in order, so if you feel that I ordered them wrong, I am sorry. Like many other things my excuse will be I just got off work and I was tired.
10- I got a 20 gallon fish tank. Emily doesn't really think this is such a big deal, but I love my fish and often times they are the first thing people notice. Plus all the babies love them.

8- The Bingham Family moved above us. Emily's sister and her family moved into the apartment above us. It is great to have family so close. We are always willing to help out one another. Lynnlee also loves having her cousins so close.

6- Lynnlee started crawling. About 3 days after Lynnlee turned 6 months she started crawling everywhere. She is such a little mover. She loves being where Emily and I are and she loves being able to get to her favorite toys.

4- Took a Family trip to Ohio. In the beginning of August we took a family trip to see Emily's family in Ohio. It was a fun trip. Here is a fun story: Two days before Emily, Lynnlee and I were supposed to be getting on a plane to come home we discovered that Emily's wallet was missing with all of her ID and things. We looked everywhere and stressed about it and called everywhere we could think of. My dad, Kenney, finally found out that if we file a police report and talk to the people at the airport we should be able to get on the plane without photo ID. Well, we did that and got to the airport early, so early in fact, that we were the first ones there. We were eventually able to get on the plane and we were happy because a 30 hour drive to Utah would have been no fun. When we got back to my parents house in Utah we received the packages I sent home to help us make weight on the plane. When we opened the box we discovered that I had actually mailed the wallet to Utah by mistake. It was quite the experience.

3- Emily's step mom, Karen, passed away and Emily and Lynnlee went to Ohio for 3 weeks. Three weeks after Lynnlee was born Emily's step mom passed away after battling cancer. Emily and her sister Courtney and the babies Lynnlee, Peyton, and Loralie went out to be with family. It was a good trip for them to be with family through the troubled times and help out there. I was grateful everyone was so willing to help Emily with Lynnlee.
