On July 16th our baby turned 1. I can't believe how fast time goes by. It seems like yesterday Daniel was born. He has grown up fast. He started walking sooner than his brothers did. He was taking his first steps before he turned 1. His brothers didn't until they were 13 or 14 months. He now walks more than he crawls. He definetly has a different personality than his brothers. He is still not a very good sleeper, but it helps that he has his own bedroom now.

We began the long drive to Alabama on July 20th. It was a real challenge to keep three kids entertained on the long drive, especially since the scenery was not that exciting. We had a few hiccups along the way and one really big hiccup when a logging truck rear-ended the van I was driving. We were just crossing the border from Illinois to Kentucky when we got hit. Luckily we were not injured, but he did quite a bit of damage to our van. We were able to finish driving to Alabama. Later the insurance company totaled our van so we had to find a new one. Our new one is my favorite color, blue, and it has lots of options. We officially moved into our house in Enterprise, AL. on Pioneer Day (July 24th). The ward here was great in helping us move everything in. We have been here almost a month now and it is not too bad. There are some bugs here that we don't have in Utah, and it rains a lot. We really miss our friends and family back in Utah, but we are making new ones here. Life should settle down a little bit so I hope to keep up on this better. Our love to you all!

Captions for pictures: This is the family ice skating in Logan (Nov. 2008). Tom loved it, but Sam was too scared to try. This is the boys sledding down the hill in front of our church (Dec. 2008). This is Daniel with Grandma and Grandpa Mithchell at the family Christmas party. This is Daniel on Christmas morning. Sam and Tom after decorating the Christmas tree.

For Ed's we went to an indoor go-cart place, and let Ed and his best-friend Darryl go racing. Ed's bosses, Jean and Vaughn, also joined them for some fun. Of course with my belly getting bigger I got to babysit the boys. They had fun playing the video games and watching Dad get his butt kicked by his friend (shhh, don't tell anyone that either).
For Tom's birthday we decided to go bowling. It was a lot of fun for the whole family. Obviously we haven't done it for awhile, and Mom had a little handicap with the stomach. Tom and Sam almost beat their Mom! It was a little embarrasing. Everyone had a good time though.
