It's been a long time!!

Hello everyone!! It seems like forever since we posted anything. Don't worry, we will try and get back in the swing of things. Everything in C-town is going great and little Will is getting bigger everyday. Here's the run down of what we have been up to lately.

Angela is still working as a free lance web developer and has been very busy lately. On top of that, she has the full time job of taking care of Will. I don't know how she does it day in and day out, but she makes it happen. She is a really loving mother and I am very proud of her and all she does. Some of the other things that keep her busy are cutting coupons and reading. I got her a B&N Nook ereader for mothers day and she really seems to enjoy it...score one for me. She is still the secretary in the young woman's at church and she seems to really like that also. She is always doing arts and crafty things for it.

I am still working in the same job and I just celebrated my 5 year anniversary with the company. They gave me a I guess that was nice. A pay raise would have been better, but I will take what I get. I am still in the clerks office at church which is pretty nice. Mainly because I get to see how much tithing everyone is paying....just kidding. I have been trying to work out and watch what I eat because as I get older I am more concerned about my health. Before long the topic of conversation with all my friends will be what medications we are on and what procedures we recently had and what parts of our bodies hurt. But hopefully those conversations are a ways down the road.

I finally saw Avatar a while back and was pretty impressed. I think I must have been the last person to see it judging by the ticket sales. The story line reminded me of dances with wolves. Did anyone else pick up on that? But I guess that's not the first time the same movie has been made twice. Another example would be the original Fast and the Furious movie, it was copied after the only cool Patrick Swayze movie Point Break. Watch them again and you will see what I mean.

Some of the music that I have been listening to lately is Eric Hutchinson, Manchester Orchestra and The Swell Seasons...check them out they are pretty cool. Angela has been jammin the Lady Antebellum CD, which I have to admit is pretty good...for country.

As for Will, like I said, he has been growing up so fast. He has been teething a lot lately, which has made him a little irritable. But all thing considered it hasn't really been that bad. He can say ma ma, da da, bye bye, juice, cheese and backpack. That last one is from Dora the Explorer. I guess we let him watch a little too much TV at night. He is super high energy and goes non-stop from the moment he wakes up until it is time to go to bed. Which keeps us on our toes, but is good because it makes him a really good sleeper. He goes to bed at 9:00 and is out until at least 8:00 the next morning. He slept until 9:45 today, which I am sure Angela loved. He is a really happy kid and has been such a blessing in our lives. We still can't believe we are parents to such a sweet little one.

Well, that's the update for now. We will try and make more time to post stuff, so keep checking in from time to time.

Below are a few recent pics. Enjoy!!!

Ok, John posted these pictures WITHOUT my permission. Boy do I look crazy! That was a picture from a Young Women's activity where we did crazy hair makeovers.

I LOVE my nook, I've read one book on it so far and it was pretty cool. All the classics are only $1.99 so I might start going through those. Thanks so much!

Will is growing up way too fast and everyday I still can't get over how cute and crazy he is!!

Thanks for posting this John, you're the best and you do so much for us!

P.S. Dirty Dancing is the only cool movie Patrick Swayze has been in!!

Sidenote: If I have to watch Armageddon one more time, I'm going to gouge my eyes out! Why is that movie always on TV and why does John always have to turn to it??? I guess I'm the same way when Pride and Prejudice comes on. I have to watch no matter how many times I've seen it.

We saw Avatar at the end of the rope too.. but were lucky enough to see it in Imax 3D. Holy cow it was awesome! Love the updates. Keep them coming!

Love your pic, Ang. Gotta love those girls! I sure miss em!

Will is adorable! And so big.

I asked for a Kindle for Mother's Day, but ended up with a Nordic Track x7i...maybe Shawn's trying to tell me something :). Keep us updated on your Nook reading, it may be a better choice than the Kindle.

Shawn thought Avatar was a futuristic Pocahontas. I'm w/u on Dirty Dancing; Shawn would say Road House (Yuk!). I watch Point Break for Keanu and the skydiving.

Miss your three. Wish we were there to see Will grow.

Avatar= Dance With Wolves (and/or The Last Samurai) + Ferngully + the Matrix!

Good to see you guys are doing well. I'm back in the Springs for the summer, I should go by and see your folks!

we were reminded of good ol pocahontas when we saw avatar. Thanks for the update, We miss you guys and are glad everything is going well. Angie - we love the pic I have always wanted to work in YW sounds so fun. David might apply to a school there in Valdosta. That would be neat to be a bit closer.

you guys are great examples to us!
Wills a cute one :)

It would be awesome if you guys moved to Georgia. Valdosta is about 3.5 hours from us, so it's not super close, but way better than Idaho. Will and Asher could hang out. Do it for the kids!
