Berthoud Update

Well, it looks like everyone is updating the blog and what's going on in each of our lives, so here's our few cents worth.

Christy is doing well. She has gone down to working only 2 days a week making it a lot easier to care for Riley. Riley seems to take much of her time, but she's still able to do many things that she enjoys. She' been asked to make another wedding cake, and she accepted. (Christy's first wedding cake, besides the one for our wedding)

Riley is growing like a Miller. He had his 4 month check up earlier last week and he weighed in at 16lbs 2 oz and his length was 26 in which puts him in the 75% for weight and 80% for length. We've been having a blast as he's learning to imitate us as we make funny noises at him. He really is the sweet heart and very friendly with everyone.

I'm back in school, so it's back to full time work and almost full time school. I went back to Aims were I got my A.A. cause they finally got the ATC program I've been waiting for and it turns out to be much better than Metro state where I was going last year. So far it's been a good semester, and I can't wait to start fall semester when I get to do 18 credits of just simulators (9 for Non-radar sim and 9 for radar sim) So I decided to get a jump start and start memorizing the chart for fall classes (the chart below is what I have to memorize, it's rather easy compared to what I will when I get to Denver Center).

Well, here are some pics, mostly of Riley of course.

Christmas Eve morning with the Kackstaetters, I think we know what Riley will be when he grows up.

Sweet Shades!!!!

Santa Cutie!!!

Happy New Year

Things are much quieter since you all left after Christmas. Here's just a few sights from Loveland you might enjoy. I'm just slow in getting them posted.

The Kid's Castle is now gone, but here's how it looked on New Years Day.

A little frost on an old cobweb on the front porch.

The Castle in its final decay... but what's that fuzzy thing?????

A better view of what I actually saw walking around the deck and enjoying the Kids Castle.

Okay, so the below post has got to seem kinda creepy to Mr. Jake. I mean why wouldn't it? If your picture went solo on some family blog belonging to a family that you've never met, wouldn't that just make you feel funny? It's Okay Carrie, in order to fix your mishap and ensure Jake feels better about his debut on this blog, I've corrected the picture for ya'll!! Enjoy!!

My update

Well, I'm one of those that doesn't post here very often, but I feel I have a good excuse in that if you want to see what we're up to - just go to our blog! I posted several pictures from Christmas week there if you haven't seen them yet. I also plan on uploading all of the pictures I took once we get moved into our house and have a good Internet connection (the connection we have now is sufficient for just the basics and requires a lot of patience). So until then, hope ya'll are doing well and enjoying the new year!

Hi all. I do appreciate posts when they show up, and I know we are all busy with so much stuff, but this will die if we don't get stuff up. Many of us are rather slow (or non-existant) I'm sorry to say, so you bloggers out there, let's get something up! I'm sure you all have some Christmas photos or stories to post.
Update on me: I'm working full time again till the end of the year, and not liking it :( It's a tough class (2nd grade) and though I've done it before, it's a lot of work. Got parent-teacher conferences coming up (not bad except I don't get home before 9:00), report cards, testing, and on and on. Even at home, it's always on my mind. So I need some help: Any suggestions out there on how to "let it go"? Seeing what you are all doing helps! So please post. :)
