My First Blog

So I (Emily) never thought I would do one of these things because I can never think of what to say in things like this, but my brother-in-law just started one and Shaun thinks maybe mine will be as good as his. Although I don't agree, I thought I'd give it a try. I guess for this first post I will just say what's going on in our lives right now. I am just trying to get used to the stress of having a 2-year-old and a newborn. It isn't easy, but it is definitely worth it. Ethan just took his first trip (with Mommy, Daddy, Spencer, and Grandma Dibb) to Lagoon last week. Of course, his favorite part was the train and he didn't want to get off. He and Daddy also went on their first camping trip this weekend (in Provo Canyon), and Shaun decided after getting only a few hours of sleep that it will be a while before they try that again. Ethan did love running around in the great outdoors and building a fire with Daddy, but was extremely tired when he got home. Spencer was blessed on the 19th. Shaun blessed him at Mom and Dad Dibb's house with just family there and it was nice. Spencer is getting to be a fun baby now that he has smiles and coos to offer. He's a little fatty and we just love him. Although Ethan does like to pick on him, we're sure he loves him too. Shaun just found out today that his is not one of the top 15 commercials submitted to Heinz for a chance to win $57,000. That was a bummer, but all of us who love him know he surely deserved a spot. He does have another movie that he is working hard on right now, so that is keeping him busy and motivated. All four (wow, really, four!?!) of us are moving in with Grandma and Grandpa Dibb this weekend, and, although it's not the most ideal of circumstances, we greatly appreciate them and are excited to be able to spend more time with them.

I am so excited you started this, I like it. I can't wait to read more. I am bummed that Shaun's commercial was not picked, it is such a good one.

Very impressive! Way to join in on the 21st century. I am not too far behind but just need to find a good name and have real internet. We get it next Thursday! Scott is really excited we'll have cable too for football season. Put more pictures on if you can, we love them. xoxo
