Splish Splash!

I just couldn't resist posting this picture of Reid from yesterday -- we came home from swimming at the rec. center (our FHE activity!), and the kids got into the bath like normal. But before we knew it, Reid had climbed out and grabbed his flippers from the swimming bag! He wanted to go swimming in the bathtub! Who could resist that big cheesy smile?!

Happy Birthday Reidy-Boy!

Well... our little boy is now in his "terrible twos" -- that's right! -- Reid turned 2 years old on Monday, and we celebrated with a small family party of hot dogs, chips, ice cream, and cake. What more could the little guy want?
Of course, we all spoiled him, and he was thrilled with his many gifts of balls, bubbles, swords, books, Buzz Lightyear, and a trampoline (which he has to share with Macie, of course). He's 100% boy, alright! Thanks to all who sent gifts or came to the party -- as you can see from the photos above, Reid really had a wonderful day. Of course, he was tired out by the time it got dark (after a full day of jumping on the trampoline, who wouldn't be?), but he still had enough energy to blow out his candles 5 or 6 times! Danny kept re-lighting the cake, Reid would excitedly blow the candles out each time, and then command "Dad, AGAIN!" It was lots of fun!

I still can't believe that my baby is two years old! What's even more unbelievable is that we will have a new little baby in May! The doctor says that things seem to be going well, and that she doesn't anticipate any problems. So, hopefully baby Davis will come without incident. I just hope he decides to come on time ... I am not looking forward to being pregnant any longer than I have to!

We've got a new look!

I was finally able to figure out how to get a new header on our blog, courtesy of Adobe Photoshop, of course, and a little help from my friend Amy (she's got such a cute blog, I just had to ask her how she got it that way). So, now every time you visit our page, you'll see our cute new header! Enjoy!

Beat Those Utes!

Go Cougars! The ballgame on Saturday was a blast, especially because we creamed those Utah Utes. Now our family is headed off to Vegas to cheer on the Y as we face other ball teams in the MWC tournament!

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year! We celebrated the holiday with our little family for FHE last week, and the kids really had a blast. I checked out some books from the library so we could learn about Chinese customs and traditions. Then we ate some Chinese food for dinner, fortune cookies for dessert, and marched in our Gunnell Family Chinese New Year parade. Danny led the procession around the living room, kitchen, and hallway -- holding up the kids homemade dragon masks in the front, while we followed wearing the dragon's body and tail. If only I could figure out how to get video on here, I'm sure it would be a hit. The whole while we chanted "Gung Hay Fat Choy!" I think this will be a new family tradition -- it was a blast!
