Lazy, Hazy Days

Well, I’ve decided to join the 21st Century and am trying to get my blog looking a little better. So, here’s my first attempt at adding video! This is from a couple of weeks ago, when Avey was just starting to crawl. Now, she’s fast as lightning, of course.


Also, let me know what you think of the new background. I still don’t think it’s very “cute” as the advertisement would have you believe. I looked at the ones under the “masculine” category (seeing as I’m a dude), but they all looked more girly than the rest of them.

Last night Avey slept about as much as an insomniac at a Pearl Jam concert, so Kira and I have both been very fuzzy all day. By “fuzzy”, I mean that state of consciousness where ones brain might as well be day-old oatmeal. You parents know what I mean.

We were invited over to dinner tonight with a family in the ward I used to home teach. The meal was amazing and their kids kept us all entertained. We sure are going to miss the friends we’ve made here.

Pain in the Back

We somehow managed to get no photos of anything we did this week. That's probably because it was so very busy. After last Sunday's post, I got in the mood to do a few projects, so I installed a smoke
