Heather's Walking

Well, sort of. Take a look...


We had a wonderful Christmas this year. It was so nice to spend it with our family. We started off this years festivities by going to temple square to see the lights.

Heather stayed nice and warm wrapped in her blankets. She loved seeing all the lights.

It was wonderful to not only see all the beautiful lights, but to feel the wonderful spirit there.

We spent Christmas with the Standages and had such a fun time with all of our family. We went out and played in the snow. Heather LOVES it!

Heather woke up from her nap with a crazy hairdo!

Oh...I guess you cant really see it, but it's a cute picture anyway...

We had a great time celebrating Christmas with our family, and are sad that we didn't get to see our other family. We were able to talk to them all and we were also able to talk to Nathan. He is doing great, and is loving Alaska! We love our family! We are so grateful for all the gifts that we received this Christmas, but there is one gift that we are and will always be thankful for, and that is the gift of the atonement of Christ.

(I was going to put a picture of Heather as she played the part of the angel in the Nativity story but I guess we didn't get a picture...this will have to do. She is our angel, and a wonderful gift from God)
As always, the break always seems too short, but we are happy that there is only one semester left. In other news, we just got our grades back, and both of us got straight A semesters!

Yay! We are almost there!

The last several weeks have been SUPER busy! Daniel has been working on his graduate school applications, and has submitted two out of four. We are excited about that, and can't wait until we find out where we will be going. We are taking our finals this next week, and after Thursday at 10am we will be done with another semester! Only one left! Well...undergraduate education that is.
Well, we know why you are really reading this blog...Heather is doing great! She gets cuter and cuter every day. She is 9 months old, and weighs 23.25lbs, and is 28 inches long. She is a chunk. Here are some photos of our recent adventures:

We celebrated Thanksgiving at Mom and Dad Standage's house. Here's a picture of Heather helping to put the whipped cream on a YUMMY peanut butter pie.

After we were done "painting" with pudding, Heather was such a mess she was in bad need of a picture. :)

Heather was the first one on Santa's lap, and she was one of the only kids that wasn't scared of him.

Pudding Painting

Today Heather and I decided to paint. I made some pudding, taped some paper to her tray, and pretty soon...voila! Heather had a beautiful (and yummy) painting for daddy. Here is some of the footage. Enjoy!

The last part is my favorite!
