January 28th

Last we had a memorial dinner for Steve's birthday. My mom asked me to make some Cincinnati chili. I had gone my whole life believing that Cincinnati chili took great skill to make. Steve was the only one who ever made it. He wouldn't even let us try, it was just to hard and only he could do it. I started off by making sure I had all of the ingredients.

Then I read the instructions...which consisted of 4 steps.
1- Combine packet, water and tomato paste in pan
2- Bring to a bowl and add Beef
3- Mix beef with a fork
4-Reduce to a simmer and cook uncovered for 1-1 1/2 hours

The end
It turned out delicious. We are all pretty much addicted to this stuff. The only problem is they only sell the packets back east. We have to order it online.

15 months!!!!

Lincoln had his 15 month check up today. He was very brave and didn't even cry when they pricked his finger. The shot in the leg was a different story. At least he got a sucker after. Our pediatrician always likes to mention how amazing it is that Lincoln is so healthy. :)

Height~30 1/2 inches~ 30%

Weight~ 20 pounds 6 ounces~ 4%

Head circumference~17 1/2 ~2%

To sum it up, Linc is a light weight with a pin head. But we like his small head.

Lincoln is such a joy in our lives. We are loving every minute!
~He still loves his bath time, and tries to drink the bath water.
~Loves Bosco
~Says mamma, dadda, cat, puppies, ball, milk, hi, bye, yes, no,shoe, please, thank you, outside, more, and Will claims that he said "I love you"
~Loves to play outside
~Likes to play with dads quitar
It seams like Lincoln went from crawling to running! He is full of energy and keeps me busy!
Will and I still sneak into his room every night to watch him sleep before we go to bed. I hope I always take the time to appreciate those precious moments.
We still wrap him up like a baby to put him to sleep. :)
I still trace my finger along his scar and think about how different my life would be with out him.
Life is good.

Goodbye 2010.

Oh what a year! I am excited to start fresh with 2011. To an accident, surgery free year. 

We went to a 80's night party at classic skating.
 In February we were able to go snow boarding, the one and only time this year.

Will continued to work his butt off in order to graduate in April after taking time off for Lincoln's surgery. We made sure to make time for Nickel City.

Will Graduated from BYU with his Masters. 

We had a month full of traveling. We went to Moab with friends, California for a job interview, and we also went to Oregon to visit my sister Soni. Shortly after the job interview in Cali, Will got a job offer here in Utah, and we took it!

June was a good and bad month for Lincoln. He had to have surgery, but he did win the Freedom Festival baby contest.

At the beginning of July we had our annual family cabin trip. We also bought our first house! On July 15th we said goodbye to my second Dad.

In August Will gave me a couple more ulcers by landing himself in the ICU. He has earned the name miracle boy number two.
In September we celebrated our Three year wedding anniversary and my birthday!

In October we celebrated Lincoln's 1st birthday!!!!
We went to California in November to spend time with Will's family. While we were there we went to Will's 10 year reunion.

We had another nice relaxing Christmas at home this year. And discovered that Lincoln hates Santa.
