I'm not sure how many of you know, but my dad has had two heart attacks. Because of that, I've been in this mode of trying to capture a lot of memories to keep as part of our family history. A couple years ago, I started writing my memoirs. I still have a long way to go before that's finished. I also polled my siblings about their favorite songs and stories that my dad sang and read to us in our youth. I then set out to have my dad sing, read, and record himself so we can have these stories forever. I think it was for this reason that I wanted to record my dad telling the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. As hard as it is to think about your parents not being with you forever, I've realized that death is inevitable and I want to do what I can to capture as many memories as possible.
On a lighter note, here are a couple pictures from Oktoberfest. The first is of some of the food we ate (rouladen, wiener schnitzel, bratwurt, and kartoffel klosse). The second is of Tanner, who fell asleep in the car because he was so wiped out from the day's activities.

I'm just wondering where your little blurb is about what's happening in State College. Last I talked to you, you were about to start a new job. How's life? I would imagine that autumn is very beautiful there. Post some pictures & stuff!!

(This is a picture of Chet & I on a cruise to Mexico in July of this year.)
I'm sure everybody knows pretty much everything about us, since not much has changed in the last little while. We're still living in good ol' Kaysville & we like it! Chet is working at Hertz in Bountiful, but is now the manager. That's great because he can drive a rental car home every day & it's free gas for us. Plus, I get to have a car at home all the time now, which is very handy. :) I get to be at home with my boys, Ryan Chet (3) & Clint William(1), which I love. We spend a lot of time outside & at parks because my boys love to play in the dirt. Clint has recently mastered his walking skills & prefers to walk around the block, instead of ride in his stroller. Ryan & Clint are finally starting to get to the point where they can play together without too many not-so-favorable incidents, so that's fun to watch. Some news that a few of you may not know is that we are expecting our third baby boy in February. We're really excited about that, but we may have to make a few changes when he gets here--car, sleeping situations, etc. (P.S.--does anyone have any secrets about how to make girls? We seem to be out of the loop on that one.)
I'm not doing any special crafts or hobbies or anything, but I spend a lot of time thinking about everything I want to fix up in our house. :) One day we may get to accomplish a few things on my list. I recently read the famed vampire books too & really liked them, especially Twilight. I also spend a lot of time fulfilling my calling as the Relief Society Secretary, & enjoy that as well.
That's pretty much it for us!! I'm excited to hear more about what everyone's doing!!

Hey everyone! I will try not to use too many exclamation points, but I am pretty excited to be blogging with y'all. Jake gave me the info.
Here is the update on the Newbold Family. We have now expanded our operation with the addition of our daughter Claire. She is the prettiest little thing you have ever seen. She was born on July 16th at about 7:00 in the evening. She is huge already. I don't remember the exact statistics, but she is near the top percentile in weight and length.
I am still going to school and will be until May of 2009. Hopefully it will go quickly. Lorie had been working at Logan City until the baby came and now she is a stay-at-home mom. She loves it.
I will post more later, because I am at work. Later, Nick

I thought it would be a good idea to start a group blog that we can all post to as a way for us to keep better in touch with each other. We can use this blog to schedule get-togethers, post photos, and relate the happenings of our lives. For those of you who already have blogs, we can add links to this blog to each individual blog. I just really think it's important for us to start updating everyone on what's going on in our lives so the ties that bind us together can stay strong.
