R2-D2 and Chewie's real role in the movies.

If you are not a Star Wars fan then ignore this message and wait for more cute pictures of Sydney and/or Savannah. Apparently, with the prequels we have to re-evaluate the original movies. My sister-in-law Heidi sent me an email that explores these issues (an acknowledgement of my geekiness, I'm sure). So, here it is, a discussion of why Chewie almost killed Luke.

Cereal and Memories

For as long as I can remember, I've been hearing stories about the time I emptied several boxes of cereal on the floor and danced on them. I don't ever remember doing this, but its my parents favorite story to tell. I began to believe that nothing else happened in my whole childhood. My one and only defining moment was spent stomping on cereal.

Even as I have children of my own, I continue to hear about the infamous day. Then today, something happened that will bring a smile to my parents face and a cringe to my own. My daughter, Sydney, took off with a box of Cheerios and decided to empty it onto her bedroom floor. Instead of getting upset, I grabbed the camera. I'm not sure if that was a good idea cause my parents will enjoy rubbing it in. However, when I tell stories to my daughter I'll at least have evidence instead of hearsay.

Life with two children has been interesting. Sydney if starting to get use to the ide a of her baby sister being around. Instead of Savannah, she calls her Nana or just baby. Sydney's vocabulary is explouding, she has become a little parot recently. She is coming up with new words all the time (and new signs cause we've been teaching her sign language).

Savannah, still only a week old, is a little cutie. She likes to sleep all the time, even when we're trying to feed her. Her weight dropped a little and we're still waiting to hear about her bilirubin count. Hopefully it will go down so we don't have to have her under a bili-light. Sydney had to do that and she hated it. We'll hear about it tomorrow, but I'm sure things are going to be okay.

We'll try to be better about leaving stories about our daughters on here in the future(that and pictures).

Good bye Logan, Its been fun.

We're now completely (we're still working on it) into our new home in Layton. We were really sad to leave Logan, we've spent our whole married lives up there. Its bitter sweet to leave (finishing school and all). Here are some parting pictures.

We do plan on posting some pics and stories of christmas, soon.
