Back to the Basics

Ever since Chase was born, our lives have been a little chaotic.  Not only did we have the stress of having a newborn, but we also had Thanksgiving, Christmas shopping, the ward Christmas party (which we were in charge of), Christmas, family parties, our anniversary, and Chase's blessing.  For a while, it felt like our lives were zipping by, and we could barely keep up!  While all of those activities were fun and memorable, it is kind of nice to just get back to basic life right now.  I usually hate the month of January because I think it's cold and boring, but this year, I'm appreciating the simplicity that comes with it.  So, for now, I'm grateful for the simple things in life: a happy family, a clean house, folded laundry, and comfy clothes!  After a couple months of chaos, it's nice to just sit back and enjoy the ride.  (Oh, and a new season of 24 started, so happy about that, too!)

And in other news, Chase went to his 2 month appointment.  He weighs 10 lbs. now.  He smiles and coos all of the time.  I may be prejudice, but I think that he's the cutest little guy around! (See photo above for proof.)

And in even more news, my little brother, Devin, got engaged last night.  I think he's going to get married sometime in June.  Congratulations, Devin and Megan!
