Elise's first step!

Tonight Elise took her first step! It was very exciting! This past weekend we went to Idaho Falls to spend time with family. It was fun to take the "scenic route" up to Idaho. We were able to make it there without even crossing the Utah border. The weather was so nice and it was fun to play outside with Elise, get icecream at the local dairy, and even go to a Titanic exhibit. We are enjoying Wyoming and getting used to our new life here.
Until the next post....

Elise took her first step tonight!!!!! Watch and enjoy :)

Happy 9 Month Birthday Elise!

Elise is 9 months old, whaaaat! Seriously! How did that happen? She is getting bigger and bigger everyday. She is standing by herself now, doing a bear crawl instead of a normal crawl and we are just awaiting that first step. Wyoming has still been very cold and snowing every other day, we are hoping Spring will come sometime soon. Daniel is liking his new job and gets his own office too. We also love how every office in Wyoming closes down from 12:00-1:00 for lunch everyday. Below are some short recent videos of Elise, enjoy :) Happy Birthday little girl we love you and hope you have a great 1st Easter on Sunday.

The new family on the block

Daniel, Elise and I have been in Lyman Wyoming for almost a week now. Definitely an adjustment, but things are going well. Everybody at my new job is really nice and for the first time in my life I get my own office. Very exciting! It has been snowing everyday since we got here, last night we got a whole foot! Hopefully spring will be here soon and we will have time to prepare for winter for next year. This town is very small, everybody knows everybody and people already know who we are without us even saying anything. I like to think this town is like "Stars Hollow" from Gilmore Girls. There is one of everything, one gas station, one grocery store etc etc. Elise has adjusted extremely well, even staying on her same schedule. She is a very social little girl and seems to smile on cue to anybody who says hi to her, needless to say I think she is winning over this small town. This week she keeps standing by herself without holding on to anything, we know very soon, she will be walking, and after that, all bets are off. I am going through Sonic drink withdrawls, but hoping to get one in Salt Lake soon. I will try and keep you posted with our new adventures here in the cowboy state of Wyoming. Until next time...

Elise is happy to be in Wyoming Moving day...
