Future Missionary... in 16 years

Last week Nicholas wore a new white shirt and tie and he looked like a little future missionary. I remember my Grandma Porter had given me a little future missionary badge when I was young and I managed to hang on to it till now. I got it out and Nicholas was so excited to wear it. So look out world- 16 more years and he will be able to wear a real tag!

Eliza's First Haircut!

Today we took Eliza for her first official haircut. She was a very good girl and didn't cry or move around at all. She seem a little scared at first, but after a few minutes seemed a little better. Her favorite part was getting a sucker at the end.

Girl for Gaby and a vote for Mitt

This picture of Eliza was taken today. I think she was trying to pose for the camera.

Yesterday Carlos was able to vote in his first election EVER! Since becoming a citizen last Oct he has been so excited to be able to vote for Mitt Romney. He said it felt great to be able to vote. Watching his excitement to vote to participate in electing our government officials has really made me realize how greatful I am to live in this country and what a privelage it is to be able to vote!

Gaby (Carlos' sister) called us yesterday to let us know they are going to be having a GIRL!!! YEA! We are so excited for Gaby and Luis and for Erick to have a baby sister!

I just had to add this picture of Nicholas becuase I think it is so funny. If you can't tell buy the box it is a pair of shoes and his face just makes me laugh.
