Carter's 2!!!

Carter turned 2 on Saturday which was also Valentine's day. We had a fun and exciting day which ended with an exhausted 2 year old that didn't take a nap and had too many sweets.

Lilly Rose

Sorry that this one is so blurry, but her smile was so big I had to post it.

All is well in Bella Vista

Here is an update of what we have been up to:

We have begun to scrape the popcorn texture off our ceiling. It looks awesome due to Tims hard work. We have finished the living room, dining area, and the entry way. And have begun to prime and paint.

We got 13 trees cut done around the house and in the backyard. We did this to protect our house from falling branches and to allow for a bigger backyard, which we will be working on in a couple months.

We had an ice storm that kept Tim home from work for 2 days and left over 500 thousand people without electricity for over a week. Our electricity went out once for an hour and then again the next day for 3 hours. About 30 mins away in Fayettville, Ar is where most of the damage was done.

We have been enjoying the WalMart fitness center here. We have been trying to go swimming weekly. Carter and Lilly both love it and Carter is getting very good at swimming "like a fish".

This week has been warmer and I have taken the kids to the park a couple times. I love that we live only a block away from a large playground, basketball court, tennis court, miniature golf course, and swimming pool. Carter just loves to go and play at the playground especially when there are other kids there. One day some older kids even took him down the tall slide, pushed him on the swing, taught him how to play tether ball and shared their lunch with Carter. He loved every minute of it. Sometimes we just go and roam around and throw a ball at the b-ball court and tennis court and visit Yogi the bear at the mini golf course. And Lilly does great just sitting in the stroller of being held and enjoying the outdoors.

The ward has been great here. We have made many friends and it has helped that there were so many friends that we already had in Idaho that moved here as well.

Lilly is over 3 months old now. She is so smiley and alert now. Carter has been much more fond of her of late because of it.

Well we are loving it here and will be sure to keep you updated.
