White Christmas

Uncle Brian and Aunt Debbie fulfilled Benjamin's wish for a rocket by getting him a Stomp Rocket set. It is SOOO cool. Styrofoam rockets that you can launch by stomping on a launch pad. They go high and fast and Benjamin LOVES it, so David took him outside. He was out there for over an hour launching rockets and going down the slide, because he discovered how fast you can go when you're wearing snowpants. SOOO, here are a few pictures of the fun, and the CUTE hats are from Granpa and Grandma Blunck who are serving a mission in Peru. : )

Merry Christmas!!!

Hunter's World

Hunter is just changing every day!!! His toothy grin that melts your heart now shows off 4 teeth on top and 4 on bottom. He is on the move, crawling for a few weeks now (he never army-crawled, just went straight for the real thing) and puts anything and everything in the mouth. He now eats a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, and I have enjoyed pureeing and freezing his vegetables myself. I freeze them in ice cube trays and it works great. He LOVES his big brother and always has an adoring smile for him. He's got such a sweet disposition and puts up with a lot of "love" from Benjamin. His newest trick is standing up in his crib, but he gets a bit stuck there because he's not quite to the point where he gets himself back down. : ) He's a blessing to us all!

YMCA Basketball

Benjamin has had a great time over the past few months playing basketball at the YMCA every Saturday morning. David was the team coach and had a blast. : ) The boys were three/four years old, so they bring out small hoops and just let them have a lot of fun. : )

Beautiful Baby

Here are a few shots of our darling baby Hunter. Check out the nice teeth on bottom. : ) He is such a joy in our family. It's the best thing to see him watching Benjamin and laughing at everything he does. He has the BEST chuckle and is rolling around everywhere now to explore.

Charleston Falls Preserve

We had a fun Columbus Day adventure exploring a beautiful area close to our home. The last few pictures are of Benjamin calling out to David, who was exploring a cave, "Dad, don't be afraid. Are you scared dad?" Eventually David got Benjamin to join him. : )

Welcome, baby Rita!!!

The Price family welcomed baby Rita on September 28th. After many boys she is a sweet addition to the Blunck family and Hunter and I were very happy to make a trip out to Oregon to meet her. : ) David's parents are on a mission to Peru, so Janeece was definitely in need of some extra hands and some love and support as she's recovering from a c-section. We had a wonderful time. Janeece has seriously been blessed on many levels, I know the Lord keeps his promises! (Mom and Dad Blunck were promised that their family would be watched out for.) Here are some pictures:

This was a visit to Great Grandma and Grandpa Blunck: (Grandpa started out with "the big boy" Hunter and the we convinced him to take a chance with the delicate baby girl.)

These are pictures of Karl, Phillip and Hunter on an outing to a park. The weather was beautiful while we were in Oregon!

What do I do?

Okay, you know all of those nice children's books about community helpers? Where the firemen are helping somebody get a cat out of the tree? Not true. As we speak our little kitty, that was here when we moved in, is stuck up HIGH in a tree (I'm not good as estimating how high, but higher than our house). I tried to climb up to it, but failed. SO, I resorted to calling the fire department. They probably wanted to laugh at me but kindly informed me that that can't do things like that for liability purposes. Hmmm. SOOO, the poor baby is stuck. The real reason this is especially sad is that the poor thing was hit by a car last night. It survived that with a minor wound, but seems to be okay other than that. So this morning the neigbor's dogs came into our yard and it flew up the tree. So I will wait, like they told me to. I don't know what else to do but blog. It's too early in Idaho to call my sister.
UPDATE: The cat finally fell out of the tree. Second traumatic experience within 24 hours. The poor thing!

Graduation from Purdue University!

Congratulations to David!!! He graduated from Purdue on August 6th. Here are a few pictures of the great day.
My parents were there with us on graduation day, and we're so grateful they made it! David's parents, who are serving a mission in Lima, Peru, were with us in spirit. : )
