Happy New Year!

So, ya. It's been awesome having Gary home. Why? Well, we've been getting some yummy meals again (great pork chops last night and a sausage/celeriac/apple concoction tonight) and all the little fix-it jobs are getting done (not that I couldn't do it of course:)). Most importantly, we've been able to have lots of Louise and Gary time. On the 30th we went on our 3rd date since Kai was born; we went and saw `Blood Diamonds' which is a very powerful movie, I'd def. recommend it. Big thanks to my sis Maria for babysitting little Kaiser.
On the 31st, wow, were we wild! We went and shared a dessert at Red Robins and then rented a bunch of episodes of `The Office'. We laughed a lot and stayed up until midnight! Go us. Boy, times have changed but I wouldn't have had it any other way:)
I went for a `run' today, oh boy, I don't know if I can call it that. I ran to Extra Foods to get carrots and then ran back quite awkwardly with a couple pounds of carrots in my hands. I have never been so out of shape in my life but I don't want to turn into one of `those' people that complains about it all the time so I won't mention it again (by the way, i'm not thinking of anyone in particular when I say `those' people so don't be offended!).
I weighed Kai today, he's 19.5 lbs. He's pretty much sitting on his own now and I'm trying to teach him to crawl by leaving fun toys just out of his reach, how mean am I?! I don't think he's anywhere near crawling as he can't get his big belly off the ground:) Oh he's so cute.
Gary and I are getting a bunch more black and white photos to put on our office wall, I think it'll look pretty nifty.
Gary has been watching football like crazy. Although, that game yesterday (was it the Fiesta Bowl?) with Boise vs. OU was pretty fantastic in the last few minutes and overtime. I was upstairs reading and heard Gary giggling, yes giggling, like crazy. I came down to see what was going on and he was watching football, so I watched the end of that game with him. Who giggles like that when their excited?
Okay, this has been a lot of writing and not many pictures (I know some people only look at the pictures) so I better end of here. Have a great night/week/year everyone! Love, the Chapmans. Oh ya, I should attach our Christmas card that Gary made...here it is:


  1. You will be able to run better soon, keep up the trying.

    Louise you are hilarious. That was one of the most entertaining blogs yet. Gary, I'm sorry I didn't come today... I know I probably got your hopes up and everything :) I signed up to frame and make some cashola before school starts back up again.
