When We were New

This November marks the three year anniversary of when Brandi and I fell in love. It is hard to believe that it has been that long already. At the same time, I can't remember my life without her. It seems as though I was hardly living before she came into my life. All of my current joy and every successful endeavor in my life, I owe to my darling wife.
I love this picture because I feel like it somehow captures the depth of love and joy we felt for one another on the day we were wed. Though I could have never believed it at the time, I love Brandi so much more deeply today than I did on that beautiful April day. She is everything to me.
I love you, Sweetheart! Posted by Picasa

When He was New

This is a collage of Lincoln when he was less than an hour old. His little body parts are so new and perfect. He is still new and perfect and I am grateful every day to be his daddy. Brandi and I have been so richly blessed to have him in our lives and we thank God every day for sending us His precious child. Our lives are much happier and more wonderful today than they ever were without him.
This week, he'll be nine months old and the last nine months have been, without doubt, the best nine months of my life! I love you, Lincoln. Posted by Picasa

Can you hear that?

Ahhhh.....Can you hear that? The sound of Halloween being completely over for a year! I understand that some people make all of the money for a complete year by running the haunted houses. I will also leave out all adjectives to describe those haunted houses because I'm trying to be nice. I understand that kids will ring my doorbell, and because I have a cute kid I will answer in hopes that they are all cute, and even when the rest of them will never be as cute as my baby, and some will be not cute at all, I will give them candy. Ahhhh.....It's over. It's so over! Hallelujah!

On the other baby was darling!

October? What about March Madness!

Life is getting better in Nebraska! We finally painted our two bathrooms. I cannot even begin to explain the happiness that has completely overtaken me. I would even go so far as to use the mormon cliches: with every fiber of my being, and without a shadow of a doubt to explain the exact happiness I am feeling now! Had you seen the sea foam green and salmon colored stencils on the wall, you would definitely begin to understand why warm yellow in one, and a very neutral honey color in the other are so necessary!

Lincoln is learning to stand up, and so far we have only had one bloody lip. He is so big, and I miss the tiny baby that got so big-so fast!

David is doing great in school--the weather is mysteriously annoying--my neighbors are gang banging drug dealers--I have one friend that I see on a regular basis -- I don't want to babysit 4 kids for $6.00/hour (even if it means I will have a small income)--yes, I live off the government for the time being--and---I am looking forward to Christmas break!

First Official Family Picture!

Who would have guessed?

So, I never thought it possible to miss Utah. No offense to our wonderful friends, the 99.9% likelihood that your neighbors are nice LDS people, the beautiful mountains, and a family-friendly culture. I miss UTAH so much it hurts. I have cried a few cries, and then I made cinnamon rolls which only made the miss slightly better until the sugar kicked in, and then I felt, well, fat! So, I ate another one. Needless to say, the cycle ended there. Except the loneliness part. I miss you Utah. Who would have guessed? But, I do. I miss you desperately. I miss having a ward of 60 youth. I miss everything about you. Except, your yucky winters, but then again, Nebraska's winters are even yuckier. So, I miss your yucky winters. Well, we will see what happens. So far, I'm in a state of miss. That's that.

Arizona was good to me!

I went and visited my Uncle Jaush and Aunt Amy in Arizona! Uncle Jaush graduated from ASU. I had such a great time. Uncle Jaush made me laugh for the first time! Posted by Picasa

Nebraska here we come!!!

There is no place like Nebraska
Dear old Nebraska U.
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest,
Of any old school that I knew.
There is no place like Nebraska,
Where they're all true blue.
We'll all stick together,
In all kinds of weather,
For Dear old Nebraska U!

OK, so it isn't much of a fight song, but tuition-paid law school
doesn't really make the fight song a top priority. Even if the girls are the fairest and the boys are the squarest!

And besides, look how excited Lincoln is to live in Lincoln, Nebraska! Those Cornhuskers have never seen such a beautiful baby!
