May I Have Your Autograph, Please?

Yesterday, I gave the students a card (with our family picture) and some gifts. They were so excited when I told them that Derek's pictue was on the card. They asked if they could get Derek's autograph. I laughed...not thinking they were serious. However, Heidi and Derek showed up after lunch. Again, they asked if Derek could sign their cards. When I asked who wanted an autograph from Derek, every hand went up. So, Derek spent 10-15 minutes signing autographs. One student did ask for my autograph...he must have felt sorry for me:)

Family Photo

Derek is five months old today. Here are just a few, random pics of him. We are excited for his first Christmas. He can grab and pull on paper, so it will be fun to see him open up his presents. We will have a new post soon with holiday pics.

Derek's first Thanksgiving

Derek celebrated his first Thanksgiving visiting both grandparents' houses. He missed Thanksgiving dinner because he was sleeping. His favorite part was his mommy's pumpkin pie:) Yummy!
Last Saturday Derek was excited for his first BYU Utah game. He imagined an action packed game full of highlights and big plays...he was wrong. It was so boring that he slept through the game...which is what his parents wanted to do as well. The game was BORING! To make up for the lack of excitement, Derek decided to have some fun of his own. During the game, Heidi was playing airplane with Derek above her head. As Heidi was talking to him, Derek decided to share some of his digested lunch with her...He spewed into Heidi's mouth and on her face. Keith laughed and laughed and laughed. Keith's dad had that happen to him with one of Keith's sisters. Heidi brushed her teeth and we got both Heidi and Derek cleaned was certainly the highlight of the game.
Derek is 4 months old and weighs approximately 13 pounds and is 24 inches long. He has starting laughing...a lot. He must think his parents are silly because he laughs with them...and at them. Derek's latest adventure is snooping around the Christmas tree to see what he's getting for Christmas...he's just like his mommy!:)
Keith and Heidi are excited for Derek's first Christmas! HO HO HO!
