It is a very busy time for the Denney family. We are getting ready to move to Sacramento, CA on the 15th and we have officially decided...again...that we HATE moving! We don't even have a place to live yet. Hopefully that will change by Friday. We have already packed up all of our stuff so we are living on the bare minimum for the next few days and have already been for a few days, but it seems to be working out okay so far. Anna is thankful for all the help she has recieved from the Relief Society sisters with cleaning!!!! It has been getting done soo fast. And with morning, afternoon, and evening sickness she doesn't think she would be able to get it all done on her own. By the way...I'm pregnant! Tim will be flying down to Sacramento early monday morning and Anna will be driving up to Billings with her family. Tim will then be joining Anna and Abram in Billings on the 18th. We are very thankful that Tim doesn't have to be at work until the 30th of December.

We have neglected to put up the pictures from Abram's birthday and will now repent. Abram didn't really like being messy for the first birthday cake but for the second cake he was okay with the frosting being all over his hands. He first celebrated his birthday with his grandma Nehring the Saturday before his birthday and then he celebrated again the Friday after his birthday. Due to traveling on his actual birthday we weren't able to celebrate it on the right day. Oh well...I guess there is always next year. He enjoyed opening his first present, but once he saw it was a fun toy he no longer wanted to tear the paper off of any other presents. We kind of forced him to anyway though. And when he got to the clothes he threw them all on the floor one at a time. More fun for mom than baby. : )
Now for the most exciting thing of all going on in our life right now. It is the reason for all of this craziness! Tim is graduating on Friday!!!!! He is definitely ready to be done and is very excited to be moving on with life. We are thankful that we will have family here with us to celebrate with us.

Well...its been a while

We have been negligent on blog updates, but we will try to do better in the future.

Some exciting news in our life is that Tim got a job to in Sacramento, CA with the company he interned for this summer. We are a little nervous because of all the protests at the temples. We know that we are supposed to go to California so now all we have left to do is pray for strength...and go there of course! Tim is definitely ready to be done with school and is having a hard time staying motivated. Only three more weeks of school!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!
Anna is trying to keep busy with some projects and taking care of Abram. She is painting a "secret project" for Christmas and is also sewing some stuff for Christmas. It is nice to keep busy and she is definitely enjoying the satisfaction of being creative.

Abram is definitely going to need a helmet soon if he doesn't stop falling and hitting his head! : ) He is learning how to walk and is very determined. He keeps going no matter how many times he falls. We don't know if we would be that brave. Abram has started to fake laugh and it is soooo(!!!!) funny! Of course when we laugh he does it even more! We love it.
This has been a sick week for the Denney family. Both Tim and Anna have been feeling under the weather and Abram has been feeling pretty sad and clingy this week. Hopefully we will all be feeling better soon.
This is Abram and Anna with their new haircuts and Anna's new color. This was actually taken about a month and a half ago.

Abram was Sully for Halloween. Don't let the picture fool you. He really hated his costume.


Abram definitely thinks that he looks cool.


Abram really likes bath time. In this picture he is trying to figure out what the bubbles are and why they are stuck to his hands. : )



This picture was taken when Tim was coming into the room. Abram got really excited and tried to climb out of the tub.

Everyday life

Well, it has been a while since this blog has been updated. We have really got to get better at this.


Anna has had a pretty busy summer with traveling but things have calmed down now. First she went to Billings, MT for a couple weeks when her brother Seth came home from his mission and then she went to Granby, MO for a week for a family reunion. And all of this traveling with Abram. He did well overall but we can tell that he is happier now that he is home. Now Anna is just trying to finish some projects she has wanted to get done. Anna is considering starting up a cooking blog so keep your eyes open for that. He love and passion for cooking is growing more everyday.


Tim is really liking his job, but it is turning out to have more drama than he ever would have expected. He is continuing to learn more and more everyday he works and is also continuing to get more responsibility. His "boss" is out on vacation for the week so he gets to do the job of two project engineers for a while.


Abram has grown by leaps and bounds in the last month. He is now able to stand up in his crib so that makes sleeping time much more interesting. Everytime Tim or Anna puts him in his crib he cries for a couple minutes and then he stands up to bounce on the matress and play. At first he wasn't sure how to sit down, but has now mastered that. He is also a full fledged crawler. Anna has found herself on her toes every second of the day. Abram likes to follow Anna around the house and try to stand up by using her pants for support. Abram has also started climbing up the stairs and he can also cruise around the furniture. We don't know when exactly he will start walking but it can't be too far off.


Below is a picture of Abram doing is favorite thing which is standing in front of Anna on the couch using her legs for support and a picture of the berry trifle Anna made a few weeks ago. This will probably go onto Anna's cooking blog when she creates it. If anyone has any ideas for a name for the blog just let us know.

Milestones: Good and Bad

Well, it has been a long time since we have posted anything, but looking at Aaron and Julie's cool blog has inspired Anna. Now she will just have to figure out how to make it cool like theirs.

We just moved to California about two weeks ago and have gotten an apartment in Oakland. Tim is doing an internship for the summer with a construction company in San Francisco. He is working on a high school as Project Engineer. He is excited because he will get to see all sides of a project. He is the middle man communicator between everyone and is happy that he will get to do a lot of paperwork and organizing.

We were able to find an apartment with air conditioning and a washer and dryer (this is nearly impossible in the Bay Area) which makes Anna VERY happy! And it is a lot cheaper than living in San Francisco. Luckily, one of Tim's bosses lives close to us and they will be carpooling.

Anna had to take Abram to the doctor today to for pink eye. He's taking it pretty well, but HATES his medicine. He was also weighed today. He now weighs 20 pounds (which is what I expected)! He's a big boy and we love him that way. Whenever we go to the store we get at least two or three comments on how blue his eyes are and how chubby his cheeks are. Tim and Anna feel blessed to have a little boy that brings so much joy to people. The best part is that he smiles at anyone that will talk to him and that just melts peoples hearts.

Anna and Abram have spent the week with relatives in Fairfield, CA and Tim came to visit. He said that in the two days that he hasn't seen us Abram has changed a lot, so I know all of you see a huge change.

I am including two videos/slideshows (if they work) of Abram when he was born and now. He has definitely changed a lot.

The Rexburg Temple Dedication of The Church of Jesus Christ was today. President Monson, the new president of the church, made quite a few jokes as well as gave some counsel. It was really foggy in the morning and during the dedication it started to clear up. Tim heard that used to happen with President Hinckley as well. Either way, he was grateful for the sun--it has been snowing every other day and the snow is piling up. Anna is doing well. However, she is not looking forward to having Tim be gone for the latter half of this week. By the end of each day during the week both Mommy and Abram are ready for Dad to take a turn. Dad will miss both of them as well as he competes in a construction competition and conference in Reno. His team is tackling a LEED (green building) problem. Tim also hopes to be able to land an internship at the job fair. Well, we won't make this first one very long, but I hope all who received an invitation to our blog will blog just a few words or two. We have taken Julie and Aaron's example to heart and giving this a go.
