The Webcam

Ethan loves to smile and talk now. It's great! Isaac is still very fond of him and if we're not careful, lays on him with kisses.

Here's the front of the house with snow. It's hard to see, but the Guard Frog is on duty, as well as the elephant.

Silly boy!

This was our first webcam visit with Grandma and Popi Frost. Technology has really shortened the distance between Idaho and California.

You don't realize how much wildlife you have until it snows and they leave tracks. This is standing at my backdoor and taking pictures.

Isaac was put in our room for a nap because he didn't have a bed yet. This is what happened when we thought he was sleeping. Note: Don't put a toddler in a room with a bathroom and a whole roll of toilet paper.
Our truck finally arrived on January 3. We had been told it was coming Dec 31, but received a call that it was 2 weeks out.
This is the downstairs playroom. It's much cleaner than this now, and has more furniture.
Here's the kitchen after we painted it pecan sand and pottery red.

With no furniture yet, Cosette decided the closet would be a good place to sleep.

This is the Rexburg, Idaho temple. It's considered a medium size temple. We went to the open house on New Year's Day (Jan 1). Talk about a hike!! From the stake center to the temple was about 1/4 mile and the temple has three floors we had to walk up & down. Inside was quite beautiful with a distinct wheat motif.

Last night Faith Carter, Cosette's cousin, came to spend a couple nights with us. They went sledding in our yard today.

This is the view from our side yard out over the valley. Beautiful!!

Guest room

After the New Year's Eve party we were invited to, we came home and started to paint the guest bedroom. We started about 11PM and finished about 1:30AM. What a way to bring in 2008! We decided this will be our experimental room. Our next project will be the kitchen.

Year's End

With winter roads come ice and snow. This is our first fender bender. We just happened to slide into a guy with a trailer hitch. You can see the bent license plate frame and crack in the bumper.

Ethan the Reindeer.

Twin Falls temple. It is nearly completed. We spent New Year's Eve driving to Twin Falls about an hour and a half away. That's where Costco is.
