Sorry Its been so long. We have been so NOT busy. Just keeping up with day to day and trying to have fun. I thought I would just give a quick update on our lives

CHRIS: still pluggin' along in school, He has about 3 and a half months left till graduation!!!! No word yet on a job but he has had 2 interviews, one in sweet home and the other in Eugene. He is still serving with the 11 yr old scouts in church and seems to really enjoy it.

ANDREA: I am just hanging out and trying to keep up with my little monster. I have been getting better at couponing ( if that is even a word) and love it. I Just got released from the Primary Presidency(Today, Sunday) and was called as the Young Woman's Ward Camp Director. it should be fun I have been in Primary since we got married (5 1/2 yrs). So I am not sure what I am going to do when I have to sit through three hours of Church!! no i am looking forward to getting to go to YW and Relief society for the first time in 5+ years.

COOPER: is so great. he learns something new everyday and keeps us on our toes. he loves to be outside and always brings us shoes and tells us "shoes on bye bye" I love that he likes to be outside and on the go but it is not so much fun we it is time to come in. He talks non stop and knows about 40 words (that I can remember anyway) He knows the sounds for: monkey,elephant, Camel,frog, puppy, Rooster, sheep, wolf, lion, chicken, fish, and octopus. he can tell you what a car says and what a motorcycle says. He LOVES the movie cars and asks for it first thing in the morning. he LOVES when Chris comes home and hates it when he leaves, he goes to the door and in the saddest voice says "Dada bye bye "and then tries to open the door. He loves to sing songs with motion his favorites are Patty cake, wheels on the bus, popcorn and head shoulders knees and toes. He just learned how to do Ring around the Rosie so he is constantly asking "round round" We love this kid and think he is the greatest!

well I could go on forever I have been trying to get some video of Cooper doing his animal sounds but as soon as he sees the camera he stops so hopefully we will get some soon.

We went to a Murder Mystery Dinner Last night. It was really fun we all dressed up and had to solve the murder of Hal Cappone.

Scoop and S. Traten Harrow (a.k.a. Stephanie and Jake)

Billy "The Kid" and Silky(a.k.a. Dave and Lisa)

Molly and Ernie( a.k.a Kari and Bryce)

Eddie "socks" R.Gyle and Torchy (a.k.a. Chris and Andrea)
Chris played the role of a golfer and Night club owner and I was in the role of the singer in his club.
It was great fun to have dinner and solve the murder. I have never don one before and always thought it would be fun. So a great big THANK YOU to Stephanie and Jake for putting this all on.
