Taylor and Carter are all better but Taylor is still getting up all night. I think it is habit at this point- she got used to Mommy coming in and nursing her when she was sick. She is waking up at least 5 times a night and if I don't go to her, she'll cry for hours. I think her seperation anxiety is also playing a role as well. She pretty much likes to be glued to my hip when she is awake. I don't mind it unless Carter needs my attention. Carter. Hmm. Carter is starting to not take naps for me. I am so bummed! I am grateful that he has been a good napper until now but I am still convinced he needs the sleep. He wakes up around 5:30 am each day regardless of if he has a nap or not, or if he goes to bed early or not. GRRR. Can you tell that I am exhuasted! Carter has been soooo naughty lately! Drew and I are really frustrated with him. We know that he is mostly bored, tired, and wanting our attention. I am trying so hard to keep him busy, rested, and to be patient with him. Some days though I feel like a terrible mom. GRRR!
Well, it is a beautiful Sunday today. It is snowing big fluffy flakes of white. It reminds me of our days at BYU. Walking up to campus... everyone was happy, the freshman would build snowmen, snowflakes on our eyelashes. Those were the days! Anyway, our church meetings have been canceled so we are going out as a family to go on a walk in the snow. I totally feel like pulling Carter around the block on a sled (but we don't have one (grrr.))and having a nice chat about how Heavenly Father has created this beatiful earth we live on. Maybe I'll put him in the jogger and Drew can have Tay in the backpack. Anyway, enough of my ramblings! I'll post pictures soon.

Dear Firl Family,
Carter: Carter is now a Sunbeam in Primary. It took a little bit of convincing that Primary would be a fun place to be but after a yummy pancake breakfast with his new class and a promise that he can talk into a microphone at church (ward primary presentation), he was sold! Carter is also taking a gym class at the local rec center. The name of the class is Tumbling Tumbleweeds… and even though there are 2 teachers for the 11 children, I think they should rename the class Hurricane of Tumbleweeds. It takes a lot of work on some days for the teachers to keep up with those active 3 year olds. I think even the mommies are ready for a nap when the class is over.
Drew: Drew is just a busy man. He is enjoying his job and doing “manly” home improvement projects on the house. It is super cold here in
Corinne: We’ve been in the house for 3 months now but I still feel like I am unpacking a little bit each day. There are days when I ache for “home” in
