We went into Jensen's room this morning to find him standing up! Needless to say we will be adjusting his crib.
He was rather pleased with himself :)

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays from the Three Stooges aka (the McDonalds).

We had a busy year. We stared the year out in Colorado doing internships and hard labor. We added a miracle baby boy to our little group. We moved back to Idaho and couldn’t be having more fun.

Curly (Dave) Dave had a lot of fun in Colorado living in the in-laws basement. He spent his time working hard for a custom closet company installing over-priced closets in over-priced homes. He worked hard but was glad to get back to school. Dave is in his Junior year studying Geology. Sediments, depositions and structures fill his time. He plans on graduating next December.

Moe (Danica) Danica got to finish her degree in finance by doing an internship for IXG, a 1031 exchange company. She had fun and learned a lot. She finished just in time too. Just two weeks after her internship Jensen was born. She is having fun staying home with Jensen, and spending a couple of hours a week selling for IXG.

Larry (Jensen) Jensen is a joy and tons of fun. He is seven months old and on the move. He crawls everywhere and chews on everything. His little heart is set aflutter by anything electronic. He keeps everyone smiling with his infectious smile and giggle.

We are incredibly blessed from Heavenly Father. We have lots of wonderful friends and family, and opportunities. We hope all is well with you!

We are ready for the Semester to be done, and for Christmas to come. We are excited to be spending Christmas in Rexburg as our little family. We even have an awesome paper tree.
His hair is long enough for me to try and spike it. The picture doesn't capture the cuteness:)

Jensen has become attached to a favorite bath toy. As soon as we put him in his bath he knows it is time for his frog and he starts reaching for it. He has even started to learn to pull himself up to a semi stand- so we get him his toy to wrestle as soon as possible.

BLAM! I pity the fool who can't grow facial hair!
Now get me a glass of milk.

Happy Thanks giving! We had a great time in Utah. We got the best deal. We got to hang out with Dave's family and my family. We got to celebrate Dave's birthday with french silk pie, and all you can eat Brazilian food. Jensen is a mover and has progressed from army crawling to actually pushing up on his knees. He will get fast very soon. For now we are busy child proofing everything. Jensen LOVES electronics and will squirm all over the place to gnaw on a wire. He loves the phone most of all. Whenever I am on the phone he is trying to push as many buttons as possible, most of the time hanging up on the person on the other end. Its fun .

We got to go down to Utah this weekend and visit with both of our families. It was nice to visit, and for Jensen to play with his cousins. We visited Dave's sister MaryBeth.Little Hailey loved hugging Jensen. She will be a little princess for Halloween. She looks like ET when you see her walking from behind.

Jensen tried on a little lion outfit. His drool was the only truly threatening thing.
We also got to spend some time with my brother Bryce and his family.
Bryce and Dave both got to spend the better part of the weekend on homework. FUN!

Sam was stalking us all weekend growling and gnashing his teeth, then when he put the lion costume on he couldn't wait to get it off.

Jensen learned he has a tounge, and sticks it out all the time. He has started teething and tries to suck on everything! He has also been steady enough for Dave to balance him standing up. When this kid learns how to crawl it will be hard to keep up with him.

It has been a crazy month, and we are glad it is winding down. We moved back to Rexburg Idaho for Dave to finish the last three semesters. Dave ended up driving over 4000 miles in less than a week, then packed up his camping gear and went on a geology trip for a week. I'm glad he is safely home, and preparing to start school after Labor Day.
