Christmas Card Blog!!

So this year seeing as we are poor students and can't send out Christmas cards, I still wanted to do one that everyone could see.

Ryan is in his second year of Medical School and is doing so well. He is loving learning everything and loves to come home and practice all his techniques on me which is wonderful. He is doing so well and will find out in February where he will begin his rotations in the summer. He is the most wonderful father and loves spending time with the boys when ever he gets home from school. Ryan is the Scout Committee Chairman in our ward and loves working with the boys. He is such an example to me about hard work. He would do anything for our family and loves just being at home and relaxing with us when he has the time.

I (Heather) love being a stay at home mom and am so grateful that I have the opportunity to do so. I love Colorado other than the fact the we are so far away from family. I also love the weather here. I am determined to learn how to ski or snow board one of these days but who knows when that will happen. Recently I have taken up sewing and love making little things for my boys. I have made a lot of their Christmas presents this year which was so much fun and probably will be appreciated more now that when they are older and don't want moms homemade clothes and stuff. I am a Visiting Teaching Supervisor in our ward and love getting to know the other women in the ward.

Blake will be 3 years old in February. He is such a smart little boy. He is constantly talking and learning new things every day. He has been potty trained for the past 3 months which has made my life so much easier. He loves reading books with us and playing with any type of car or truck that he can find. As Ryan would say " he is such a boy" which I guess is a good thing. Blake loves to play with his best little friend named Levi. They are so cute together and could play for hours with each other. Blake definitely teaches me something every day.

Carter will be 9 months old the day after Christmas. He is such a joy in my life. After having colic for the first 4 months of his life he has definitely turned out to be such a happy little kid. He is a pro crawler and starting to pull his self up on anything and everything. Carter thinks that Blake is the most hilarious kid ever. He laughs so hard at any thing that Blake does and even tries to copy him whenever he can. Carter loves to be outside and loves to go on walks. He is such a wonderful addition to this family and we love him so much.

We are so grateful to be where we are in life and know that trials make us stronger. We love our families so much and are so grateful for their love and support of us. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and pray that we can all keep the true meaning of Christmas in our hearts this holiday season.

Love, The West Family
