Hey everyone, hope this post finds you well.

We have had an exciting few weeks, Lydia has started walking all over the place and Owen started potty training this last weekend.  We are on day 3, and so far, it hasn't been too bad.  Most of the time he gets his #2 in the toilet, its the #1 that he is having a problem with.  He is always telling us that he has to go potty after he goes.  Its alright though, he is trying really hard.  Lydia, is growing up so fast it is amazing.  It seems like just a few weeks ago she was just learning to crawl.  now she has a big tooth filled grin everywhere she walks.  For me, I have decided that I need to get my fat butt in shape and will start to exercise a little.  There is a bunch of people at work that play Ultimate Frisbee during lunch on Wednesday's, I thought I might join them and do some other things during the week.  Shelly continues to be the best mom and wife ever.  She does so much to make our kids who they are and she tries extra hard to be an awesome example to them and to me.  I sure do love her.  I am so lucky to have her.

Below are some cute pictures of just random things I thought you might enjoy.

Hope everything is going well with you all.

Happy First B-Day Lydia :)

So we had a lot of fun on Lydia's Birthday. Grandma Denise flew in from California and we spent half the day in Salt Lake. We met up with the Wade's ...good friends of the family... and then had fun on Temple Square. We went to the hands on part of the Church History Museum. For dinner we had bagel pizzas and a neopolitan cake with Cookies N Cream ice cream. Grandma and Grandpa Pete,the Peterson cousins, and the Jett's came over to celebrate. She was just a happy little girl all day and I think she knew it was her special day. Owen kept singing Happy Birthday to her. We love Lydia sooooo much and are so grateful for this past year and that we are lucky enough to have such a sweetheart in our family.

I guess it is my turn

Hey everyone, hope that the new year has treated you well and all of you new "resolutions" haven't gone the way of the trash yet.

As for us, we are still doing awesome. I just got back from a trip to New Jersey where I trained a company on the software that I help develop. It was fun, but i'm glad that I am back with my wife and kids.

Anyways, we love you all and hope you are all doing good.

Happy December!

Hello. I am here again randomly with a few fun photos. Things are going well for us since we last posted. We enjoyed Thanksgiving at the Wakefield's, decorated the house for Christmas and are excited to see our Peterson family soon :) We had our neighbors over for a scone night and that was a lot of fun. Today we hosted playgroup and it was enjoyable having lots of kids around and I had adult conversation :) while there was snow on the ground outside. Owen doesn't take naps anymore so I don't get much free time, but that is ok. Owen and Lydia both like to listen to primary songs on You Tube during the day and Owen usually gets to watch one movie... and yes...we have to limit how many times a week he watches Cars or we (Nate and I) might go crazy. I have been working a lot on family history at night and Nate has been doing a great job as a Project Manager at work. Lydia is as sweet as ever, even though she has 3 teeth coming in...and she seems to want to skip the crawling stage and go right to walking. Life is good for us in the Peterson household and we are grateful for all our many blessings. We hope things are going well for each of you.

Hello, It is my turn (Nate) to post on our blog. We have recently been having a lot of fun as a family. We were able to go down to St. George and visit my older Sister Amy and her family. We were able to help them lay some cement in their back yard. It was a lot of hard work but it was fun to spend time with the family. My mom and Dad
were able to join us down there so it was good to
spend some time with them.

We were also able to go to the St. George temple visitors temple, we made the mistake of watching the families are forever movie where the grandpa dies and the family has a hard time dealing with it. Whoops, We couldn't help but think about our kids Grandpa who is sick right now. Owen tried to lighten the mood by saying "Temple, Temple!!" the whole time.

Here are some pictures of our fun time.
