4. He loves his family so much. I love watching Steven with his brothers. (And in-laws) It's been so amazing for us all to get to live in the same place for a while. I don't know if Steven's brothers know how much he looks up to them and learns from them still. He loves each of his siblings so much, and I'm grateful to them for always taking care of their little brother.
5.When Steven and I decided to get married, we had only been dating for about two days, but we had been distant friends for about two years. It was a decision that was very much prompted and confirmed by the spirit, but it was a difficult one for me none-the-less. I was really looking for the person who would knock me off my feet, and Steven just kind of snuck up behind me. (And stood there for two years) We decided to get married, even though we would be very far apart for all the months leading up to our wedding. We actually didn't live in the same town until after we were married. So, the decision to get married was one that was scary for me. I knew we could make it work, but I very much wanted to feel overwhelmed too. The day before I was supposed to move to Nevada, my family and Steven tricked me and he flew in for only about 12 hours so we could be together. That was the moment for me. I was completely overwhelmed and I'll never forget that moment. Steven makes me feel like that everyday.
I miss him. He is amazing.

So, as we looked at our choices today, I realized that we didn't have as many Christmas movies as I remembered.
- The Santa Clause
- The Polar Express
- Muppet Christmas Carol
- Mormon Tabernacle Choir w/ Sissel
- And the best of all....
What are your favorite Christmas movies? I was checking on Amazon, and they aren't expensive, and I would love to increase our collection. I know for sure I want to add the old Scrooge with Albert Finney that we watched as kids, Christmas Story, and The Family Stone.

The last few weeks Cooper is learning some very valuable lessons from his cousins.
- You can squawk and make very loud noises and someone is bound to pay attention.
- There is better food out there then bottles and baby food.
- You can grab at practically anything and sometimes get it.
- Everyone else is sitting up and talking.
- Canon loves you when he smacks you on the head.
The last one is especially entertaining. When Canon gets about 4 feet away Cooper starts rapidly blinking and crying..

We are having a great time. There have been a few changes around here, so here they are. The Maile's had a baby girl yesterday. By all accounts she is doing wonderfully, and is now named. Meleane Jacqueline Maile. (The first name is pronounced like Melanie but with and island flare...I'm not even going to try to explain...) So, with Mom and Dad Maile being in the hospital, it's given us a chance to have pizza together! By the way, I have a new favorite pizza which is super cheap, which I will reveal later. I have to use it a few times to impress people before I can tell you how to do it yourself! So, here are all the children enjoying the aforementioned-pizza.
Also, now that the Maile house is getting a little busier, Tim has come here to stay with the Brousseau's for a bit. He couldn't have been more thrilled considering that he brought ALL his Wii games, and they have theirs out and ready. (Has anyone actually sat through Zelda before? I think I should get a medal.)
I'm also a little worried for this cat.
Tim laid eyes on him as soon as he got here and has labeled him a friend. I think exactly what he said was that, "Cowboy is the most curious and inquisitive kitty!" So, keep this little guy in your prayers...he's dealing with Tim and Grayson.
