We are currently living in Rexburg Idaho, and we spend a lot of time working at Madison Gymnastics Center which we own and manage. Justin competed nationally as a gymnast, and Courtney sort of got thrown into loving the sport of gymnastics. We have a one year old daughter, Alexis Dee (Lexi) who was born on February 20th 2008, she is adorable, and we love her so much.
I just want to say how grateful I am for my little Lexi, she is such a joy in our lives. In ten days she will be 21 months. The other morning I was doing dishes, and she was in the bath, and all of a sudden she was singing as loud as she could "Ya ya go....moo moo moo." Over and over again. (Old MacDonald) I got most of it on video until she looked up, and was suddenly embarrassed. Much to the joy of her daddy, she is quickly picking up some gymnastics skills, she can walk half way across the low beam by her self, and she jumps off and says ta-da. She can also perform, a straddle, tuck, and pike on demand. She is working on her forward roll, but needs a little push at the end. She copies a lot of what we say, and then we are so excited that she has learned something new, we ask her to repeat it, and then she acts like she doesn't know how to say it, and says "dat" which is her word that she says when she doesn't know how to say something. My mom came into town this past week to visit her new grand baby Soleil, and she stayed with us. It was so nice to have her around, but it makes me lazy because she does all of my dirty work. (Thanks Mom:) My nephew Jake was blessed on Sunday. Of course he was an angel the whole day. Justin and I are slowly but surely buying some Christmas presents and we hope to be done by December 10th? I can't wait to do some secret santa stuff this year, we already have two families in mind. There is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit then to buy for a family in need! Anyway, looking forward to hearing all of your christmas ideas and fun activities.
