More pictures of Tess

W. Elizabeth's Birthday

Happy birthday to our lovely little Tess! She turned 2 years old today. So much has happened since her birth, including accepting and then losing a job in Arabia, moving to Provo, unemployment, new job with healthcare, moving to California, and the addition of her little sister Kate.

Tess is the sweetest, happiest, most energetic two year old you could ask for. She is generous with her "thank yous," which melts my heart, and is always the first one to greet Dad when he comes home with a big hug and kiss.

She loves to draw, can jump pretty high with both feet, runs at full speed-- leaping over anything in her path, and is really good at falling without crying (not sure if she's just really tough or simply has a high tolerance for pain). She loves to dress up, and she keeps up with Ruth like a best buddy should. She also has an incredible sense of humor that keeps us laughing.

Let's just say, we LOVE Tess!

Kate Caroly Carr

A few pictures from the last 2 weeks. She sleeps 24/7 and has grown an inch in the last week. Her sweet disposition has won our hearts!

We Love Tess

We sure love this little girl. Made this short video thinking about the Thompson Family Reunion in Florida next week.

Potty trained!

Ruth has been so good this week! In three days she has gone from a diaper-loving baby to a potty-trained-underwear-loving master of the potty. Zero accidents. We are so proud of her and grateful for her enthusiasm.

Happy Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween! Somehow we lost Ruth's costume last minute (she was going to be the cutest little mouse you've ever seen) and had to come up with a new one as we were walking out the door. Lucky for us, Daniel was not using his Halloween hat and hair due to a last-minute trip to Pennsylvania.

Our neighborhood is a tricker-treater's dream. Almost every house participating, lots of cute kids dressed up with their parents. RJ and L spent the evening with friends while I took R and T around. We had so much fun.
