MERRY CHRISTMAS

Merry Christmas Everyone! I got this idea from Kelsey's blog. I think this is a great way to do Christmas cards, especially last minute. So here is the Homer Family Year in Review.


We have had a rough year but hope that we notice all the blessings it brought. To start off we lost a few members of our family. In June our baby boy was born too early therefore didn't live, and we also lost my Grandma Simpson this last September. We miss them often.

Cameron has finished up a semester at ISU with one more to go. He also works at the Bannock Youth Foundation working with kids who need a place to live for one reason or another. It's rewarding most of the time, but they definetly give him a good way to practice dealing with teenagers in all situations. He still enjoys fishing and we have been able to go a few times this year. He will hopefully graduate in May and we will be on to bigger and better things.


I (Katie) have been kept busy through taking care of Amanda and Cameron and also doing some enjoyable things of my own. I am the Assistant Varsity Volleyball Coach at Pocatello High School under my dad and enjoy keeping involved with volleyball. I was on an Intramural Volleyball team at ISU with Dan and Kelsey and we took first place in our division. We were pretty good. I read a lot and am into a lot of new series. I went to the premier of Twilight and absolutely loved it. I look forward to moving onto a new chapter and hope to extend our family soon.


Amanda keeps us all busy and on our toes. She gets into everything and is very curious. She is walking great and has 16 teeth. Her favorite things are Monkey, Bear, and Books. We are really original in the names, but at least we know what she is asking for. She had her year birthday this year with a lot of friends and family that attended. It was fun. She has the cutest little smile and we are so glad to have her in our family.

So to wrap things up, we have had our challenges and will be glad when 2009 comes around, but we have been blessed and hope to live our lives so we will continue to be worthy to recieve more. We hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We love you all.

Love The Homers

Amanda My Cutie

Amanda has had an exciting little while, she got 2 more teeth which brings us up to 16 . The other day she comes walking into my bedroom and gets my attention, I turn around and she has gotten one of my headbands from the bathroom and put it on her head, correctly no less. We just celebrated St. Nicholastag, a german christmas holiday, and Amanda got a new book which she absolutely loves. Books are one of her favorite things. Cameron is almost done with a semester of school and I will be working part time next semester for the intramural department keeping scores mainly. We can't wait for Christmas and spending time with all our family.

HALLOWEEN







Amanda was Yoda for Halloween. She was so cute and she even won Best Costume at my in-laws ward party.

Trip to Utah
















We went to Utah for a wedding and stopped at Cabela's and Temple Square.


We laid her down next to the fish tank to measure her against the fish. She was slightly bigger, but not by much.


We also stopped at Grandma's and visited with her for a bit.

Amanda had her first birthday on October 10th. We had a party at my parents house. Here are a few pictures of her, the people, and the cake that I made. I was proud of myself.









She had a lot of fun, got some cool gifts, and loved the cake.

If you have read either Kelsey's blog or my mothers' you already know that my grandmother passed away. She was always an example to me and I will miss her and do already.

Cameron has started school again along with work so I rarely see him any more. Amanda and I stay at home most of the time, but I also am the Assistant Varsity Volleyball coach at Pocatello High School, so that keeps me busy. At least til the end of October.

EASTERN IDAHO STATE FAIR









We took Amanda to the fair for the first time. She loved the petting zoo and then we let her play one of the games. She picked a duck and won a prize.




Fishing


Cameron and I went fishing in Victor over Labor Day. I caught the first fish with my new fishing pole that I got for my anniversary.

So I've never blogged before and I'm not very good. I got into it because my sisters do it, and then I found out so did my mom. I couldn't be left behind ;) so here we go, enjoy and hopefully I'll get better. Only time will tell.

PRIEST LAKE TIME!!!







An early morning, a little snack, and fun in the sun.



Cam, Amanda and Me on Amanda's first boat ride.

Amanda would ride down to the beach in the pack and play with all our beach stuff while Cam and I rolled it down.

Cameron was packing and decided to stop and play his guitar

Amanda really liked the cheese balls

I don't have many stories since my baby is only 9 months old, but I thought I'd post some pictures of our vacations and my family.
