the swing of things

getting back into our routine of life here has been quite the adventure. i think we are adjusting quite well.... sort of.

in belgium, i blamed all my horrific cooking on inadequate grocery stores, my lackluster language skills and the fact that we owned one dingy pan.

i am not quite sure what my excuse is here in logan- but if you have a good one, let me know. i need it.

cade is adjusting as well as can be expected to his busy schedule.

personally, i'm not really into this kind of multitasking and honestly- many of you may think i have crossed the blogger line with this upload. i couldn't help myself. this moment made me laugh so hard- i couldn't just let this gem go to waste (it's pun time!). p.s. this was posted with cade's approval who is proud of his lifestye. he's a real go-getter this semester!

in fact- i would just like to take this opportunity to brag about how cool cade is. he was recognized by the president of usu and the board of directors as an outstanding student and a great example of student involvement. he received a "resolution of commendation." we're still looking those words up- but i couldn't be prouder. looks like all that extra time he's saving by extreme multitasking is really paying off.

we are liking our new ward. cade is really into the whole basketball scene, i am pretending to be into food storage and just last week the rs presidency paid us a nice visit to get to know us.

cade snapped this shot during the conversation which was directly followed by one of the girls commenting, "wow. that's never happened on one of our visits before."

welcome to the taylor home.

Love the cooking picture, Ash. :) And good job Cade for balancing life so well! I was a little bummed to read you're liking your new ward. My heart felt a sting with that one ;)

WE MISS YOU GUYS!!! Ashley, you look really pretty in all the CHristmas/New Years pictures. That is so funny about the VT pic. I would think the same thing. That was SO MANY presents!!! If Cade grows out his beard- Ashley- I am so sorry. Cade, please, don't do it!!! And way to go Cade for being an awesome student! That's great! I would totally brag too!!!

You two are crazy. We are glad to have you back in Logan. Come and visit our ward again. We miss you guys. At least come by our apartment when you are visiting Oak Meadows.

Cade & Ashley-

Ok. So Cade posted on my blog that we need to plan our get together. Really we are just waiting....waiting....waiting to hear from the two of you when you would be able to do it. You do live the farthest away and probably have the most busy social lives. So let us know a weekend or some time you could get together and we will plan it. I understand you are busy so whenever you have time we will try and make it work.

As usual we loved the post. Ashley is soo good in her writing and english skill. We now know what your living room looks like. It looks really cozy. Please take more pictures of the other rooms. No more toilet shots please. We love seeing everything. Love Mommy and Pops

Hey I just got caught up on all of your posts!! I have been pretty busy with school, but things have calmed down for now so I figured I better take advantage! Maybe I wouldn't have been quite as busy had I adapted some of Cade's new time-management techniques!! Hey, nothing like a picture on the throne to ring in the new year!

Glad to see that you guys are all settled in!

--Greg

P.S. I think we are going to head to Bruges today--wish you could come!!

So Jed and I just had a discussion whether or not Cade was actually going to the bathroom when you took the shot or if it was staged. A little too much analyzing if ya ask me, but we concluded that Cade was actually multitasking.

That must be our old ward because Lina was in that picture. Fun! It has changed tons since we were there, two years ago, but Joe's cousin is still in the ward- Brad and Stephanie Frisby. Anyway, glad you guys are all moved in and having fun in Logan!
