It's A Boy

Well, we are having a boy...Taylor Robert. He is healthy and Debbie is doing well. She is finally showing a bit. We are ecstatic and thank all those who have been praying for us. We hope that you will keep the three of us in your prayers. If it is not too much to ask, put in an extra prayer for me so that I do not pressure the poor boy into playing every sport and reading lots of fantasy like his old man.

January Update

So, I hope that all the BSG fans are getting ready for the series finale beginning January 16th at 8 pm on the Sci-Fi channel. It should provide quality entertainment for those who love sci-fi drama.

So far this month has been very busy, but I have done well thus far balancing work with the home life. I am looking forward to going to the Temple tonight with the wife to do sealings...we have not done those for years. It will be nice to get out with the wife and get away from the craziness that is this world we live in. An escape like that will be very theraputic.

Someone jokingly told me I should read more books for my New Years resolutions...I honestly think I could never read enough. I probably need to expand my reading, however, with everything going on I can hardly keep up with what I am reading right now.

The wife is doing well with the pregnancy aside from some discomfort. We have our ultrasound next Friday, so we should know what we are having then. After 8 plus years of waiting for this blessing we will not keep secret the sex of the baby, so expect a blog on it. I should warn you that my blog then may also contain my thoughts on the newest BSG episode...that is how I roll.

I hope all is well with you all and that the unrealistic BCS does not have you down. We all know that the one undefeated team in college football is the real national champions...Go Utes! That will be the only time you hear me say that.

2009 Ready or Not

Well, the new year is here whether we are ready or not. I have a feeling that this will be a well balanced year, however, that does mean some pretty significant highs and lows. Obviously we are happy to be pregnant and are looking forward to finally being parents. I worry that there will be some difficult times not related to our baby. I sense some pretty serious changes coming for everyone. I feel that while there will be plenty of difficulties, however, I feel that they will not affect us. We have experienced some tough years in the past and while they were not full of fun, we were still very happy.

So, if anyone needs someone to talk to we are here for you. This year will bring about great change...food storage will be important. Finanical calamity will be the most significant reason for hardship, so be prepared temporally and spiritually. If we are prepared, then we have no need to fear, no matter what comes our way. We love you all and wish you the best possible new year.
