4 Month's Old

My step-mom took a bunch of pictures of Parker. They turned out really, really well. I can't believe he is already 4 1/2 months old. He is growing so fast. Rolling over a little bit, when he decides he wants to, grabbing his toys and my hair and chewing on everything. He is so much fun. We LOVE YOU PARKER!! :)

Christmas

Christmas morning was full of food, presents and stockings.



Grandpa helping Parker open his very first present!! He really enjoyed it, although I'm pretty sure he still doesn't understand the whole present thing.

Christmast Eve

Here is the beautiful Christmas tree. For dinner we had hommeade chili and chips. It was so good!! Not everyone has arrived yet, we were still waiting for Kelsey to fly in. She didn't get here until about 10:30 that night.

Yum....

Rice Ceral!!!! Parker has started eating rice ceral and actually really likes it. He does so well with it, I'm pretty amazed. He never really had any trouble swallowing it and now opens his mouth wide to let me know he's ready for more!

Visiting Grandma and Grandpa Wiser

We went to Arizona for Christmas, so Parker was able to see his Grandma and Grandpa for a few days. The weather was great, compared to our usual cold Rexburg weather! Merry Christmas!!!

Parker Meets....

...one of his uncles, STEPHAN!!! My step-brother, Stephan flew in from Portland for Christmas.It has been fun having him here since it has been so long. We were able to have all the siblings together again which was so nice and tons of fun!

Santa Claus

Today we went to the mall to visit Santa Claus. Parker did really well, although he didn't want to smile for the "professional" camera. We were able to get one picture of him smiling with our camera. The pictures below are the ones that were professionally taken...the expressions say it all!!! Enjoy...

Graduation...Class of 2008

Last night Chris and I graduated from Brigham Young University- Idaho. Chris got his Bachelor's Degree in Construction Management and I got my Bachelor's Degree in Business Managment- Supply Chain Managment Emphasis. First we attended the graduation banquet where we ate dinner and listened to President Uchtdorf and President Clark speak. Parker did very well throughout the whole evening. My mom, step-dad, brother, my grandparents and Chris' family came. President Uchdorf was the key speaker at the Commencement and it was really good.

Here is everyone walking in...there were almost 1200 students graduating last night, 42 of which were couples graduating together.

We did it!!!!!

Roll on Over

Last night I laid Parker on his tummy for some tummy time, well like 2 seconds after I laid him down he had turned himself over. He did it about 4 more times and all too quickly. By the time I was able to get the camera turned on or even start recording he had already turned over. So this morning I tried again and the same thing happened. He just turned over like instantaneously before I could even push record. And then when I was able to turn the camera on he would lay there for a while so I would stop recording and as soon as I turned it off he rolled over...Geeze! Who knew it would be so hard! Well I was finally able to get at least one roll on video. He has been able to roll to both sides and has been trying to roll from his back to his front. He is just growing so fast! Enjoy the video!!!

Homework...

Parker wanted to help us do our homework on the computer. He was very intrigued, but unfortunately not much of a help! He did however create his own web link all by himself, in like the blink of an eye...kids these days, they are comin' out so computer savvy!

Newel K. Whitney Award

This morning I was invited to go to an awards breakfast to receive an award I had been nominated for called the Newel K Whitney Award. Business Management faculty members elect those who they feel will be employable quality graduates. To be eligible for the award at least two faculy members have to nominate you. There were 22 other students who also received this award out of a couple hundred students in the whole Buisness Management program that are graduating this semester. It was such an honor to be recognized and I'm grateful to have been chosen. Parker came a long with me to see me receive the award. Chris unfortunately had class during this time so was unable to come.



We each got our pictures taken and will be displayed in the hallway of the main business building on campus.


The award we received was a clock in the form of a book with a picture of Newel K. Whitney engraved inside of it. It is a very beautiful clock.
