All of the Christensen Grandkids-5 boys and 5 girls. I can finally put this up. Every year we give Rob's mom a picture of the grandkids all together. Because it was a surprise I wasn't able to share it until now. I think it turned out really great this year.

Here is a picture of the family at my mom's surprise 60th birthday party in November. From this picture I morphed us all into elves with the help a fun website. See this website. http://www.elfyourself.com/?id=1444868788.
Trust me it's worth it just to see us all dance. I know there is a way to make to make it a hyperlink but I can't figure it out right now so you will have to cut and paste. If anyone knows please share it with me...

Well it's been a month since I last posted. I knew it would be sporatic. However, I did add a lot of pictures to make up for it. Things have been more of the same. Rob is in town this week and has been able to work on the house a little more. Meghan and I picked out stucco/rock colors yesterday and they should get started on the exterior next week. Britton and Charlie are doing great. Charlie can roll over finally but is still more content to just lay on his back and smile at anyone that will look at him, including the dogs. He is getting more skilled with his hands and loves to chew on things. Britton has really liked the Halloween season this year. He helped his grandpa grow 5 big pumpkins in the garden and we carved on last week. He loved making it glow with the candle. He is so excited to be a Power Ranger and "power up" to fight mode.

We have had an eventful week. Britton started pre-school last Wednesday and loved it. I dropped him off and he just ran in and sat down at the table and said "Look it's just my size". He didn't want me to stay, he just wanted to get on with school. Afterwards we went to McDonald's for lunch and while trying to get into the play land his hand was smashed in the hinge side of the a heavy glass door. It immediately swelled and he was inconsolable so we packed up and went to Instacare for an X-ray. Luckily, bones are still soft at the age of 2, so there weren't any broken bones. The swelling went down after a couple hours and he was only left with a bruise. He wants to take the X-ray for show and tell.
Friday, we went to see Dr. Lam and everyone got shots. Britt didn't cry but he said that "Charlie wasn't very brave" because he cried a lot. Charlie weighs 14 lbs and Britt is 34lbs. and 37 inches. Britt is in the 75th percentile and Charlie has fallen to the 50th. Dr. Lam said to start solids so Charlie will probably bulk back up.
Saturday was the first U of U game. Rob took the boys to tailgate and play with the other lil' Ute fans. Great food, good friends... great day. We can't wait to go again next Saturday and maybe the game will turn out better.

So I am told this is the easy way to keep in touch with friends and family so I'm going to attempt it. I can't promise consistant updates but I will try.
Recently our family has been pretty busy. Rob has been working out of town a lot inspecting bridges and when he is home he is trying to get the new house framed so the sub-contractors can start their work. So even when he's not at work he is working so he's pretty tired. When he is out of town however he does manage to squeeze in some golf, fishing and Xbox.
Britton turns 3 in one month and is really excited to start preschool. He received a letter from his teacher Miss Lilian and he carried it around all day to show to anyone who would look at it. He loves to play power rangers, baseball and trucks. His imagination is always going. He also loves having a little brother that he can say "coochie, coochie, coo" and make him laugh. He still calls him "Jack, Jack" from the movie Incredibles. I guess that nickname will always stick.
Charlie Cooper is almost 4 months old now and is doing much better now that his stomach has "matured". He will smile at anyone who smiles and talks to him. He sleeps 8-9 hours most nights so I can't complain. The hair he was born with is a little more red than before but the underneath looks blond. It will be fun to watch him change in the next couple of months to see if he ends up a red-head like his cousin Max or a toe-head like his Daddy. He is doing a lot of cooing and Britton likes to interpret by saying "Jack, Jack said he wants me to have another cookie" or "Jack, Jack said he likes it when I jump on the bed and bounce him"
As for me, I am loving being a mother of two boys. I am surrounded. I still work at the hospital doing neurological testing but recently I've been doing more MS research. I work M-Th and love to spend Friday with my boys even if it is spend running errands for the house. The house has been pretty slow going but it gives me more time to think about the design. We are hoping to be in around the first of the year. I don't really care how long it takes because it's happening!!!
Well, I'm going to try to figure out how to add pictures to this blog. Thanks for visiting.
Well I will try to figure out how to add pictures so this looks more professional.
