Our New Place!

We are now mostly moved into our new house in Cheyenne. We live in historical base housing on F.E. Warren Air Force base, and it is both beautiful and spacious. We know we will enjoy our time here on base and in Cheyenne. It seems like a nice place to live and everyone has been very friendly.

Karter is Three!!

It seems unreal that Karter is already three years old!! He's such a great little boy- so sweet and good all around. He has a fun personality and huge imagination. He's full of fun and love and we're so greatful that he's a part of our family. We had a quiet birthday in our new home in Cheyenne. The day before, some friends took us out to lunch and Karter got to play with their kids (who became his instant friends). On his birthday, we went to church, and had dinner, presents and cake.


When Kollan got back from Alabama, Gma Bell took us to Chuck-E-Cheese to celebrate Karter's birthday early (since she wouldn't be with us on his birthday- we'd be in Cheyenne). It's one of Karter's favorite places, and Kollan, mom and I had a great time too (playing Skee-ball!).

Orem Summerfest

While Kollan was away at COT, Karter and I spent time with family. We went with Gma Bell to the Orem Summerfest, which Karter absolutely loved! He rode the rides and went to the parade, but he especially loved the fireworks! It was all a lot of fun. Gma Bell also took us to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving point, Scera Waterpark, and other fun places. It was so fun to see her and Max.

Gma and Gpa Arritt's

After graduation, we went to Idaho to spend time with family before Kollan went off to Alabama for Officer's training camp with the Air Force. While in Idaho we went out fishing, saw Shrek 3, played in the yard with a swimming pool and squirt guns, and so much more fun stuff. We were glad to get to see Kesie and Brian, Great Gpa and Gma Arritt, and Great Gpa and Gma Maxwell.


Wow!! Congratulations to Kollan! He's finished with Optometry School, and we're all so proud of him. He worked so hard and did great- and even received the Outstanding Clinician Award in his class. It's hard to believe that we're not students anymore and are in a completely new stage of life. We're very excited and again- good job Kollan!

We had a great time at the Mariners/Yankees game!! We were so glad that friends Nate, Cali, Collin, and Olivia could come up! Karter loved the game (even though the Yankees won). We would laugh because he would all of a sudden become so serious during the game and say, "Oh, no. Yankees won." Even still when we talk about the Yankees, Karter will say, "We don't like Yankess, no. We like Mariners." And his favorite baseball player is, "E-Chee-Row"
