Evan's Update

Hey Friends! Just a little update on what's going on in Rexburg, Idaho with the Evan's family: We had our first snow fall today. Thank heaven's for hot chocolate! :) Allie is getting bigger everyday. She rolls everywhere and loves to "talk, talk, talk" and read books. She turned 8 months old today. She weighs 15 pounds and is 26" long. Allie is definitely the pride and joy of our lives. :)

Cody is still working one day a week at Melaleuca and then working everyday in Idaho Falls. He enjoys working with the kids, but looks forward to going to grad school so he can be a counselor. We'll start applying to grad schools soon. When asked where he wants to go, he just says "anywhere they'll take me".

As for me, I just love being home with Allie. It is so nice to be a mommy :) I've learned how to make cute headbands and so now that consumes my time, too. Any one looking for a good read? I'm reading "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer. It's the first in a series of books about a girl who falls for a vampire. At first I was skeptical, but it has been on the NY Best Seller's list, and it is fabulous! Give it a try if you've got a second.

The only other new thing is that I got a calling to be the ward choir pianist. I'm just laughing because for the first time in my life I am in a ward where pianists are few and far between. It is so weird. I enjoy playing the piano, but I am no concert pianist, so we'll just see how this goes... Anyway, sorry for the novel. I hope everyone is doing well! Much Love to All :)

Hey Friends!!

Hey Friends,
I love this invention! Christina your family is growing by leaps and bounds! Holly, I am so excited to be a God Aunt or something like that!!! Laura, I am so glad to hear from you! Heather, I love to see all the fun pictures even though we are so far apart! Andrea, your little girl is so cute!! Becky, your family is darling and also just growing so much! Mckell, you just seem to move all around and have so much fun wherever you are!! Also, to everyone else and the fun insights into their lives! Well, Kindergarten is sure keeping me on my toes. I feel like I have 47 kids because some of them do call me mom. I feel like I can conquer the world when I have all those children entertained for six hours of the day. I give more bandaids, dry more tears, tie more shoes, and repeat things so many times a day and I didn't even know it was possible. It is fun, but it is a lot of work. Well, have a great day!! - These pictures are of Josh and I in Hawaii and Savannah, Holly, and I at the Brigham City fireworks.

A river runs through it...

My friend Jenny and her son Jake, Miles and I after our hike! 19 lbs of fun to carry around!

Miles and I in our hiking gear!

One of the views from the Wabash Heritage Trail. The Wabash river runs through the center of Tippecanoe County and separates Lafayette and West Lafayette. This is a creek that runs into the Wabash. The actual river is a lot bigger.
