Rudy's White Coat Ceremony

On October 5th, Rudy was officially 'coated' at the White Coat Ceremony. He can now officially see patients! (scary! :) Mom and Dad Wolf came out to be there for the ceremony and celebrate an early Christmas with us. They were so generous and we had a lot of fun going to D.C. for a couple of days and playing the Wii! (Thanks guys!) We've been having a lot of fun with the Wii lately. Rudy and I use it for our nightly exercise-- boxing, playing tennis, etc. It's a nice 'out' when we can't go out because Tucker's asleep. Now, if only Rudy could figure out how to STUDY with the Wii! :)

Tucker enjoying one of his Christmas presents: A backpack monkey with parent leash! Woo hoo!

We had a chance to see lots of D.C. sights as well as go through the White House.

Walking around D.C. 'dragging' a very asleep Tucker in the stroller . Rudy had to keep him behind him and tipped up so he'd stay asleep.

Fixin' up the house

We've been working hard on our house trying to add a 1/2 bath and more organized space than we originally had. This might be the last of the BIG projects we do to this house (famous last words, eh?) It was fun, but tiring and lots of hard work (trying to get it all done in about 2 weeks before Rudy's parents came out to visit.) But thanks to a plumber/electrician in our ward our house is not leaky, nor on fire. :)

Here are some 'before' shots of the non-existent 1/2 bath and closed in pantry. It used to be one big pantry/laundry room behind both doors.

Tearing a hole in the wall for the new bathroom door. Scary!...yet so much fun :)

All the wires, tubes, lines, etc. that are involved with setting up a 1/2 bath. We didn't really know what we were getting into when we started! (Thank goodness we had Jim, the 'Master Plumber' there!)

TA DAAA! (Thanks again to Jim and the Tetterton family for the sink and toilet that they had and GAVE to us!!) SO many generous people we've met!

The finished bath and textured walls (don't know if you can see the texture.)

The good sized pantry we ended up with. It was so nice to build a 1/2 bath and feel like we gained space in the house!

While the house was in madness, we figured, why not just redo the kitchen floor while we're at it?

Daddy's little helper. He couldn't get enough of using Daddy's tools and trying to do what Daddy was doing while we were remodeling.

The beginning of our family blog!

It seemed like everyone has just recently started asking us what our blog was so they could see pictures of Tucker, the house, etc. So, after looking into it and finally getting with the times, here we are! We'll be getting pics and more details up soon!
