Kara and I are spending our first Christmas together in Laramie this year. We will miss our families, but at the same time we are very excited to stay home on Christmas day and not having to worry about the weather as we travel. Time for new traditions. On Christmas Eve we are going to spend the day making candies and cookies. Hopefully it all turns out okay.
We love and miss all of you.

Sorry we haven't posted in awhile. We were in Iowa for Thanksgiving, and December is just so crazy and busy...
Anyway...Over Thanksgiving break, we got lots of great pictures of some of our favorite little munchkins: Carter, Clay, Aiden, and Kallie. So...we decided to update our adoption website. Check it out at www.jenandkara.com (or use the link to the left).

Needless to say I am absolutely ecstatic right now! As I learn more I will keep everyone updated.

We were just thinking that last year we only had two nephews to buy toys for and this year we have 7 nieces, nephews, and little friends to buy toys for! Yay!

Kara had a training in Cheyenne today and went shopping afterward (unsupervised by Jen). And I bought more baby clothes. I think the one thing that we don't need anymore of is baby clothes. Now we just need a baby to fill 'em! :) We just can't wait for that day.

I am especially proud of this activity. We used our 5 senses to explore a pumpin, the inside of a pumpkin, and a jack-o-lantern.

Kara used an apple corer to make "Boo"
and I made "Magoo"
(I'll have to get a better picture of this one!)

This is Gabe's "mean" face while he was playing with Grandma Kate.

At the end of the day, Gabe's mommy asked him what the best part of his day was and he said it was blowing up balloons with Kara. (Of course, we didn't just blow them up...we let them go and they flew all over the house!) How sweet to be the best part of a little kid's day! :)
P.S. - We just got back from a drive in the mountains AND we saw a MOOSE! The pictures of the moose aren't very good, he was too far away and in the shade....but we got some other good pics. Check back because I'm sure Jen will be posting some pics. soon.

We hope everyone is doing well...and we will try to get better at keeping everyone updated. Hope everyone is enjoying Fall, it might snow in Laramie this weekend.

The weather is changing in Wyoming. Summer is gone and Fall is upon us. It's only in the 50's today, but Jen still refuses to turn the furnace on....Hopefully we can wait until at least the 15th before we have to turn it on. The more money we can save now the more we will have for the adoption.

As I sit here typing, I can still smell that baby smell on my shirt. It makes my heart skip a beat every now and then. I am so ready to be a mama!
P.S. - Jen wants everyone to know that every external hard drive she touches, doesn't work! Hmm... Any suggestions?

Our summer is over and we aren't even really sure where it went. Hopefully, in the next few days we will get pictures from vacation posted for all to see. We really had a good time.

My mother was appalled to hear that I made a baby blanket with skulls and flames! Heehee.

Grandmas are cute and funny. Today Grandma Kate (Jen's mom) went shopping and bought a stroller for Paddington (that's what Grandma calls the child we will someday adopt). She found it on clearance for $118 instead of $190! She was so excited...it was pretty darn cute. She said she couldn't pass up this deal and will worry about how she will get it to us later. Apparently it is hot in Iowa because she said she was dying of heat and had to go to Applebee's ASAP!!
If Grandma Kate reads this just wanted to let you know I love you!!
Below is a picture of the stroller we think she bought. And below that is a close-up of the design on the stoller.

Carter loves dogs...especially Molly (or as he pronounces it "Mowndy"). Here he is going in for the kiss.
Task accomplished! Too cute!!
He he also pronounces Psuedo as "Noodle." I don't understand...but it's incredibly cute...so who cares!

This morning we got up and went to a Baby Gear Swap. Kara found a bumbo chair with a tray for only $15 instead of $50!! She is getting good at bargain shopping for baby stuff.
This morning I also completed my first knitting project that incorporated two colors of yarn and a pattern. It is for Kara, I like it so much though that I went and bought more yarn so I can make one for myself.

It's April for crying out loud!!! Actually, it's peaceful for me, but it is driving Kara crazy!!
