my first JAZZ game...

Yesterday Devin and I took Carter to see the Joseph Smith movie on temple square, and he enjoyed it for the first 10 minutes or so. Then he lost interest. But that was his first movie in a big theater...

Then Devin and I wanted to go walk around downtown for family night, so we got on the trax and went down to the mall which happens to be right next to the Jazz arena. We asked a guy selling tickets how much they were and he said $10. So we bought 2 of them, and it turns out that the first 10,000 people that came to that game got free Jazz Umbrellas. So we lucked out. Our tickets were almost to the top, but at half time we moved way down. Carter seemed to enjoy it. Every time people would start cheering, he would get really big eyes and we would cover his ears. Devin's old mission companion came also, and bought Carter a Jazz t-shirt. We decided to start him at an early age to like the Jazz and Basketball. Just like Grandpa Phillips :-) (We missed you Grandpa, but the game was SO much fun.)

Thank you

I just wanted to thank all of you who have blogs and the way you keep them updated. I know you don't do it for me, but being here in Utah far away from everyone is really depressing. But being able to read everyones blog makes me feel like I still have a life. So Thank you so much... All of your blogs are so cute and your families are so cute too.

Sitting Up... So big.. DId he say DADA???

Carter is sitting up all by himself too. And it is getting better everyday. He is also trying to scoot. They grow so fast.

We have been having beautiful weather here, so Carter and I decided to go for a walk to the park. We were walking down state street on the sidewalk and came to a stop light intersection. The sign said not to walk, but no cars were coming, so I was going to go anyway. Well I had a feeling not to, and it is a good thing I didn't. The light on state street turned red, and the light at 6100 s. turned green. So the car on 6100 S started to go. But a huge moving truck on state st must not of seen the light turn red. He came flying through the intersection and smashed right into the car that was going at the green light. The moving truck hit the car so hard that the car flew over to where we were standing. THE CAR ALMOST TOOK US OUT!!!! oh my goodness. I was shaking so bad. I didn't know what to do. The cops came in like 2 seconds, but I just left because I was shaking so bad. Good thing I didn't go. Goodness... Utah Drivers....

But I almost think that if I would of went, it would of made that other car wait and it would avoided the accident altogether. But who knows. That was the first time I have ever been that close to an accident.

Determination Part 2

This is the video of Carter rolling over... I thought it was already posted but it was not... Enjoy

Determination is Key to Success

Carter has been very deteremined lately and does not want our help. He gets very frustrated if he can't get something himself and tries all the different ways he knows how. And we finally got a video of him rolling over.

Valentines Day




For Valentines Day, Devin got me some hot pink roses, and Carter got a big pink and red Lion that growls. (He is unsure about the growling part), and a stuff monkey and a new chew toy. We then walked over the Panda Express and ate dinner and shopped around and then came home. It was a great day. And I love my family so much.

50's Dance



For Valentines Day, our Stake held a 50's Dance. Devin and Carter were my dates. I tried to get my hair to look like theirs did in the 50's but I could not quite do it. We had a lot of fun though. Even Carter got to dance with me.

Cousin Ivy's Blessing

Ivy, Nat and Steves little girl, had her blessing day this last Sunday. We really wish we could of been there. She looks so cute. And Sophie has gotten so big. Congrats guys. We love you.

Whats been happening...

Rolls and More Rolls... But these are sweet....

We have been doing better about putting Carter on tummy time and he likes it for a little bit. He will push his toys far away and then try and get them. So scooting is looking more promising. He is also a drool machine. As you can see in the video.... He is SO slobbery.

Trying to grow up WAY to fast.. Forget a bottle give me a big man cup..

Going for a ride... Well Driving Actually...

Grandma Jaynes came up for a visit and we went for a long walk. Carter stole these from grandma and put them on. Well he missed and put them in his mouth but we helped him put them where it is supposed to go.

We went to the mall on our walk and carter got tired of sitting like a baby. He wanted to drive... So we let him.
It was so fun to have grandma jaynes come and visit. We love grandma jaynes and will miss her now that she is gone. But she is coming back in about 6 weeks.

We are all doing good. The weather has been so nice lately... So that makes it easier to not have any friends... Oh and Devin got a calling.. He is the first counselor in the young mens. Well actually the young man. WE only have one young man in the ward. So Devin is working with him. So that is great.
