My Amazingly Wonderful Husband



So, my poor husband was a little sad that all this blog updating and I didn't blog about him. So...I am adding one more blog, all about Sethers!

Today, I spent the day in Woodburn with my nephews and Seth had to work but that's not all he did. He made dinner, this is the Chili's enchilada soup that I absolutely love and he made it and it was simmering when I got home! It was so amazingly sweet of him!

It had a while left to simmer so when I got home he asked if I wanted to go for a walk, since it was nice out! It was so wonderful, I got to tell him all about how much fun I had and he listened and didn't roll his eyes once at how much I use my hands when I talk!

Seth is amazing wonderful and I am VERY lucky to have him! He works hard all week and on Sundays he is up and at meetings long before most of the ward is even out of bed and stays pretty busy until dinner! I appriciate all he does so much and the great example he is to me! Just want everyone to know that!

Woodburn - Play Time!



Today I had the opportunity to go up to Woodburn and play with my little nephews while Desi and April went to a service project! We had so much fun! We started out by playing cars, I am going to have to get better at putting together race tracks because after half an hour Aaron just gave up on me and decided we should try something else!

So next we decided to build a fort! We took all of the cushions of the couch and made a little fort. Aric got in and was so cute, I decided to grab my camera. When he saw me going to take a picture he ducked down so I couldn't see him and we played a little up and down game until I finally got a good picture of him. It was so fun.

Then we put together puzzles, and watched a cartoon before we decided to go to Walmart and get balloons, not the kind with helium that float but the flat kind so we could blow them up and pop them! By the time we got home Desi was back so we all blew up balloons and tried to pop them...who knew that $1 balloons from walmart would be incredibly tough to pop, but they were...we gave up and went to Chuck E Cheese!

All in all it was a great day and I can't wait for them to come visit in February! Sorry Mike but I am hoping you have to take that business trip to Canada! I like playing with the kids!

Happy Birthday, Boys!



Well the first Birthday cake in January was for Tim! He is a huge football fan, and is worried about what he will do when football season is over! I had fun doing this for him and Seth, Tim is a great guy and we love having him around!



Now this beauty was for none other than my AWESOME older...way older brother! Since his birthday is the 10th, when they came up for the shower on the 9th we decided to have a birthday weekend too! We had a party for him and dad after the shower...it was a busy day! So...for Christmas Ben got me this awesome cake server. It plays music, the birthday song, the wedding march and he's a jolly good fellow! It also has an extra button that you can record whatever you want to. So...I recorded the entire theme song from the office and made him an office cake! It was REALLY fun to do that!

I also took these great pictures of the boys...not wanting to go to bed! Actually, I think Luke had already been put down to bed and snuck out to sit on the stairs and listen to the old folks talking! I told him I was going to keep taking pictures until he made a nice face! That just became a challenge and I got all these great pictures of him. At one point he ran to the top of the stairs and laid down so I could take a picture of him that looked like he was falling down the stairs. I love that guy! He is so adorable and Jared is great! He is getting into his own personality and is just a ham. I miss these guys!

Babyshower

Alison Cameron Whitmer



Yesterday, January 9th, 2010 we had a baby shower for Charity! It was so much fun! Aunt Sarah realized that she had done a little too much shopping for Miss Alison when she pulled all of the stuff out of the closet to start wrapping...good thing there is another shower next weekend in Medford! Of course the best gift was from me (It's my blog, I can say what I want too)! Its the cute Oregon Ducks cheerleader uniform! It says Oregon across the hiney! I fell in love with it and talked myself out of it for 6 months but just didn't make it passed the Christmas sales! (Uncle Seth was a little excited to get it too! Not often he volunteers to go shopping with me but he went on that trip!)

It was really relaxing and fun and I did a cake! It turned out pretty good I think!



PS...I don't want anyone to notice the top right picture in the collage! It would be VERY embarrassing for Aimee! Love you Aimee!
