Brigham's BIG days!

The week of December 10th - 16th was a really BIG one for Brigham!

We went to the court for finalization of Brigham's adoption on the 10th. What a cool experience!

Saturday, December 15th landed us at the temple. He was so good and looked like an angel!

The following day, Sunday, Dec. 16th Jared blessed Brigham. Again, what a sweet experience and a great end to a busy and wonderful week!

Cook Family Cruise!!!

December started off with a WONDERFUL cruise adventure with the adult versions of the Cook Family members. It was such a great opportunity to have uninterrupted time with Mom and Dad and all of the siblings. We miss the daily contact with you already!

We cruised on the Norweigan Spirit and left port in New Orlean.

Day One: At Sea

Day Two: Roatan, Honduras
Jared gave me my birthday wish and took me windsufing. It was so much fun even as amateurs! Jason, Sally, Travis, & Ashlee also came along on our excursion!

Day Three: Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatamala

We had so much fun biking in Guatamala. We headed to a waterfall to swim, had fresh fruit smoothies, got pastries from the local panaderia, and then headed to a local beach (if that's what you can call it - no sand and cement louge chairs). The best part were our little Guatamalan tour guides. What awesome boys!Day Four: Belize City, Belize

Scuba Diving and coconut eating filled our day. That is, once Jared was able to pry the coconut open!

Day Five: Cozumel, Mexico

This was the laziest of our port days. Consisting of souvenir shopping and snorkeling / hanging out one of the local beaches.

Day Six: At Sea

Day Seven: Fly home as fast as we possibly can.

We missed Brigham so much and were so thrilled to see how cute he was!
Well, there's the abbreviated details. Hope you enjoyed them.

Thanks again, Mom and Dad, for an awesome trip!

Basement Construction Completed - Yeah!!!

We are THRILLED to announce that after 9 dusty weeks of construction. Our basement is now complete. Minus most of the furnishings as decorations. Although you can see that Jared's got the most important part already set up! :)

Brigham LOVES Daddy!

Aren't they the cutest boys you've ever seen?

Yum Yum!

Brigham had his first try at cereal the first week of November. Surprisingly, he really has liked it from the beginning.

He now eats rice and oatmeal cereals and will probably start veggies very soon! Yipee!
