This year we had such a wonderful Christmas! I was so excited I woke up at 6 am and just waited for Jack and Charlie to wake up. They just slept and slept, so I started to stare at Jack willing him to wake up with my mind and at 7:30 he finally did. Then at 8:00 I finally broke and just got Charlie out of his bed and forced him to wake up! I seriously felt like I was five again...I loved it! Jack and I were both excited to see how Charlie would act this year. We were not sure if he would understand yet and we were thrilled when he did! He was so excited and very sweet; he would open a present then give one to Mom and Dad (they were not the right presents but he wanted us to have one too)He is such a sweet little guy. We got to see all of my family then head down to Cedar City and see Jack's family so it was a full day:)Santa brought Charlie his very own camp chair and you would have thought the kid died and went to Heaven when he kicked back in his chair and ate gummy savers he found in his stocking! Ok here are some pictures I will try to keep them minimal, but there are so many cute ones I can't make any promises.

Is there anything better than cowboy boot slippers, diaper, and jumping on the bed?!

Christmas Eve Jack had to go to work and we were so sad:( Luckily he talked his boss into letting him go at noon so we were able to go sledding before heading down to my parents for dinner. We have not taken him sledding before so we were so excited to get all bundled up and head out. We have a hill just down the street from us that is perfect for sledding. I tell you he was the happiest kid in the world!! He LOVED it! I am not going to lie when I tell you that Jack and I had just as much fun:) Enjoy these cute pictures.

BIG News!

For those of you who don't know already we are having another baby! We are so excited! June 15th is the due date and we get to find out the sex of the baby at the end of January so stay tuned:) The first trimester is over and is was really horrible...compared to Charlie anyway. I was puking and tired and just felt horrible every day. Ginger Ale was my very best friend for 3 months! I am feeling much better now and I am even showing...Ahh! I guess my body just knows what to do now so the process is a bit faster. I don't really look pregnant though I am still at that stage where people are probably wondering if I just let myself go. Anyway that's our big news. Hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year! And it wouldn't be one of my posts without a picture of my Charlie Brown:)

This is where I store some of his toys, but lately it has become his own personal, cozy, car. Dad attaches a belt to the handle and pulls him around the house...he loves it!

Every year for Christmas Jack and I do 5 categories for presents and one of them is plan a date. So mine from Jack this year was the lights at Temple Square. We had so much fun and the best part is that is was FREE:) Thanks babe I love you so much!

I know I look a little funny all bundled up but I stayed warm:)

Family Pictures for Jack's side

Well for Thankgiving this year one of Jack's brothers and his family were able to come from Texas, His sisters, Mom, and step Dad from Cedar City. We had so much fun and we were able to have our very talented friend Dustin do family pictures for us. They turned out so great and I wanted to share some of our favorites. I will have to post Thanksgiving festivities later:)

Me VS. War Head

Jack is making me do this post. If you know me at all you know that I do not do well with sour things. This seems to bring much enjoyment to family and friends as I am always asked to suck on a lemon at restaurants, eat sour candy, etc. Well on Halloween as Jack and I were going through Charlie's candy we found some war heads. Jack thought it would be funny to record me eating one. The rules were: NO chewing, NO spitting it out, and I had to suck on it until it wasn't sour anymore. So, as embarrassing as this is, here is the video as promised...ENJOY!

15 Months

Well my baby is 15 months now and at his doctors appointment he had to get 3 shots it was so sad:( I did get a good laugh at all the developmental questions. Nurse: "Can he walk?" Me: "Since he was 9 months old." Nurse: "Does he climb on furniture?" Me: "Onto the table, counter tops, into sinks, what doesn't he climb onto!" Nurse: "Can he throw a ball?" Me: " Are you kidding me! The kid is a pro! He can chuck anything across the room!" I was laughing so hard after she left the room. As far as his stats go he weighs 20lbs 5 oz. and is 31 in. tall. Here is a little video to show all of you how well he throws:) He loves to watch baseball and I have a feeling he may be a pro ball player when he gets older.

Cause ya gotta have a best friend!

My Mom took Charlie to Build A Bear a while ago and they made this adorable dog we named Carl. He is so cute and Charlie just loves him. The other night for about 30 min. Charlie passed Carl to me, Jack, and then himself, over and over so we could take turns giving him loves. It was so cute that I just had to take pictures. Thanks Mom for Carl:)

What we have been up to...

We have been busy around our house so here is an update on what we have doing to keep busy...
Picking delicious apples from our tree

Finding new places to play. (It took a solid three min. of his whining at the sink for me to figure out that he wanted to sit in it and play with the Q-Tips...of course that's what he wanted:))

Re-staining all the cabinets in the can't really tell in the pictures but they are much darker now and look great! I still have to tackle the kitchen. This fist one is the after.


Pretending to be crafty and making onsies for friends having babies.

And finally Charlie has been trying to start a new, and diaper. You may accessorise with a binki and toothbrush if you like:)

Hope all is well with all of you!

My Sweet Grandpa Lucy....

My Grandpa Lucy passed away this past Monday and I wanted to post a picture and his obituary in remembrance of him. His funeral was this weekend and it was just perfect. I was honored to speak and I just want to say what an incredible man he was and I love and miss him so very much!

Glen "Zeke" Zimmerman 1922 ~ 2009 It's a grave sense of loss that we announce the passing of Glen "Zeke" Robinson Zimmerman. Glen was born on February 23, 1922 in Lehi, Utah to Adella and Steven Zimmerman. Glen grew up in Eureka and Lehi and graduated from Lehi High School. His athletic years started there. He played football, tennis, and was a cheerleader during basketball season. For a short while, he worked in the Merkur Mines then moved on to school where he attended a short time at both BYU and Cedar City. Zeke then transferred to Utah State where he also played football. When the war broke out in 1942, he joined the US Marines and served for four years as a 2nd Lieutenant and then Captain. Part of his time was served in Hawaii in the Military Police. After the war, he returned to Utah State to finish his teaching degree and play football, graduating in 1947. Zeke is a true "blue" Aggie. He supported the school's Alumni Scholarship Program and athletics. His education continued to earn a Master's Degree and then his Doctorate. Also in 1947, he married Lucille Smith from Ogden. She was the sister to one of the fraternity brothers. They moved to Mt. Pleasant for his first year of teaching and to coach football at the high school. The next year they moved to Orem to teach and coach at the beloved Lincoln High School. Here is where he would start a career to help mold and change the lives for good for so many kids. When Orem Jr. High was built, he took the position of vice-principal. Mr. Zimmerman was a firm but fair man. He demanded respect, and for that he gave a lot. He developed and ran a successful program for boys that seemed to find trouble. Glen always had several things going on at once, during the summers he worked for the forest service and for years arbitrated and refereed basketball games for the Northwest Division. Glen was elected to the Orem City council where he served terms for 12 years. He was the advocate to have the recreation center built, now honored for. He helped get many projects done, one of them included getting cars for the police force. Zeke and Lucy enjoyed traveling to places like Italy, Greece, the Panama Canal, the Mediterranean, and the Caribbean. He was a fisherman and enjoyed golfing with his buddies, whom all but one, have also passed on. He enjoyed watching his sons play sports and was a regular at the Orem Owls games. With the many positions he held the ones of Husband, Father, and Grandfather were his most important. He loved and adored his wife, four children, and grandchildren. Glen is survived by his wife, Lucille Zimmerman, Craig (Zeke) and DeLoa Zimmerman, Blake (Zeke) and Connie Zimmerman, Jill Zimmerman and Nancy and Craig Pierce. Glen and Lucille have 12 grandchildren Candi, Marty, Carrie, Ty, Joshua, Brooke, Jamie, Bradley, Natalie, Michelle, Nichole, and Bret, as well as 14 great grandchildren and sister Donna Clark. He was preceded in passing by his parents, and brother Rex Zimmerman. Heart felt thank you to the loving staff of the Orem Beehive Home and Gentle Care for the love and care they gave Dad this past five months. The family would also like to thank Dr. Marshall Willis and William Alward. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the School of Graduate Studies, Scholarship Development Office, in Logan, Utah. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Oct 3, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. at the Sharon Stake Chapel, 575 S. 800 E. in Orem, UT. A viewing will be held Friday, October 2, 2009 from 6-8 p.m. at the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 East 800 North, Orem, UT and Saturday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to the services at the church. Burial will be at the Orem City Cemetery.
