This is what the Lucky Girl is getting for Christmas. Daddy and Grandpa are just testing it for quality assurance. She will now have a nicer looking kitchen then I do. I'm a little jealous.

Yep, he is 9 months now. He is developing so much personality, I love it! He still loves to cruise around the room holding on to furniture and pushing chairs and he has now taken to pushing Evelyn around on a chair. He is going to be a strong boy. He finally learned how to get from crawling to sitting position on his own and he is very proud of himself. We just love this little guy. I am so glad he is a part of our family.
He is also becoming more talkative...

Leonard is now 8 months old, I am still in denial that he is growing up so fast.
Leonard is a pro at crawling but he prefers to walk every chance that he gets. So, If there is a wall or a piece of furniture or even a person that he can use to climb up and balance himself he will use it. I am constantly finding him clinging to a wall happily walking down the hallway. I am also constantly finding my dinning room chairs in random places because Leonard likes to use them as walking toys. Leonard has been crawling and standing u p since 5 months and "cruising" since 7 months but he just recently learned how to sit himself up. I think it took him awhile to learn this particular skill because he doesn't like to sit still, he is always on the go. That being said, Leonard seems to acquire more bumps and bruise than I ever thought possible for an 8 month old child.
Leonard also loves music and to dance. The other day I put on some Black-eyed Peas and Leonard immediately lit up with a big smile and started rocking back and forth on his feet and bouncing up and down. It was the cutest thing and then I went to check on Evelyn, who was on the potty and she was dancing too, right there on the potty. It was hilarious.
Leonard is such a happy child. He is constantly smiling and he laughs all the time. He loves to be with Evelyn and Evelyn love him . I Love watching them together, you can see in the eyes how much they love each other and Evelyn will randomly say, " I Love Leonard." and she often will hug and kiss him out of the blue.
I am so glad that Leonard is a part of our family and I am glad that I am so grateful that I get to spend so much time with him and Evelyn. They may be tiring at times but they are also the highlight of my day.

Christmas is coming and we want to make a kitchen for Evelyn, but since we are going to be celebrating Christmas in the Bay we decided it would be better if we went to Dave's parents and Dave and his dad could work on it together. So, we mad a few trips.
Dave picked up a little something on the way.
David and Len had a whole lot of fun putting this together. I took three trips and some work on the week before Christmas to finish it. Not an easy project, but I turned out beautiful.

For Halloween Evelyn was a pig, Leonard was a chick, and David and I were Farmers. It was really cute and I have no clue why I didn't get any pictures of us all together.
We spent Halloween night at our ward party where we manned the PLINKO board that david made. Evelyn and Leonard also got to go around to different classrooms and trick or treat. Evelyn is a pro at it and she only got scared once, she is a brave little thing.
When we got home that night I realized that the office door was open and I knew that I had not left it that way. We turned on the light and realized that the door had been kicked in. Firs I checked the TV because I knew that was what someone would steal first, but it was still there. The wires had been pulled out and you could tell someone had tried to get it but Dave ingeniously had put a three dollar master lock on the wall mount and it had thwarted the thief. We then reallized that they had taken our computer instead. Not the whole thing, just the tower. It was a sad day because, although we couldn't care less about the actual computer, we had not yet backed up the pictures or the videos that were saved on it. So, we lost a part of our families memories, it was very sad, but we were safe and we could have lost a lot more.
