We went to temple square to see what Tucker calls "Jesus' castle", and also to see what Aidan calls the "happy", or in non 1 year old terms, the Christmas lights.
It is so much fun to see Tucker become more familiar and more excited about Christmas. We have been telling him that he has been a very good boy this year and that Santa is going to bring him some toys. Yesterday he asked me if I had been a "good boy". I corrected him and told him that mommy was a girl, to which he replied: "You've been a good GRIL mommy?" He's just so cute!
And of course Christmas just wouldn't be the same without a trip to the emergency room (at ten o'clock at night)! Our Aidan, being the very rough and tumble boy that he is, fell against my parent's coffee table and cracked his head open right above his eyebrow. It resulted in a long night and six stitches. But, boy, was he a trooper! While we were waiting for him to be stitched up, he was walking around the emergency room like nothing had happened! Too bad Mommy couldn't have been that brave.

Tucker's eyes were glued.
This one turned out pretty good.

So I kind of had a freak out moment today. As I get closer to my due date, I get more and more nervous and unsure of how I am going to handle three kids under the age of four. I would like to have the confidence that Chad has in me, but, it is difficult to see your own potential and ability.

I am kind of opinionated when it comes to politics, just ask Megan. I don't hesitate to say how I feel about things, and I try my best to be informed. To provide full disclosure, I do not like McCain or Barack Obama. In fact I think that they both have things completely wrong.
Anyway, that being said, I was listening to some talk radio, I must have been (here is where some people might get angry with me) quoting Rush Limbaugh too much, and Tucker, our two year old picked up on it.
For an entire evening, he was running around saying "Rush Leeeeeeeembaugh". It was very funny, and it goes to show you that kids pick up on everything.
Apparently, I did not learn my lesson about watching what I say because, later that same day I was also yelling at the TV when a stupid politcal ad for global warming came on. I turned to Megan and said:
"That is a bunch of bull crap!!!" (Again, not really thinking about the 2 year old boy that will regurgitate anything I say).
A commercial then came on saying, "I am Barack Obama, and I approve this message." Ever the copycat, Tucker enphatically says, "That's bull cwap".
Oh well... at least he knows bull crap when hears it.

I know that this may seem like much ado about nothing to those of you stuck in traffic elsewhere in the USA, but Legacy Parkway is totally RAD. My drive to and from work could be a combined 3 hours a day, and now I am sitting pretty at 1 hour 10 minutes. That means I can be home earlier, and my hair will fall out less frequently. Not to mention being able to actually be home before it's dark in the Winter!

For those of you who want to know, this is where we live now:
Sorry for the confusion. :)

On a much cuter note, when I went in to get them from thier nap today, Tucker looked at me, touched my arm and said "I missed you". At that moment anything he might have done earlier was all forgotten. (okay maybe not forgotten, but, definatly forgiven)

"Megan's Mommy Moments" are going to be things that my kids do that are cute, funny, aggravating, or all three at the same time. Things that other moms that may be reading this might be able to relate to.
My first is so stinkin' cute it makes my heart melt just thinking about it. About a week and a half ago, I wasn't feeling very good so I was laying on the couch. Tucker walked up to me, started to stroke my face, and said "Sorry, Mommy. Sorry".
I will try to remember to post these cute, funny, or aggravating things. Both, so I can remember them and so they may bring a smile to someone else's face.

I already think it looks nice, but as a man, I understand that I don't really know good stuff... So I give the power to my wife. ;) Love you dear!

The news came as a wee bit of a suprise, but I can honestly say, we are very happy. The due date is February 22, 2009. It is amazing to think that we can be so blessed to have such wonderful screaming... (they are currently screaming behind me and pushing each other) children.
All kidding aside, it is an extremely humbling thing to be a parent. We only hope that we can do right by our kids, and help them learn to respect each other and serve their Heavenly Father.

If anyone buys it, add me as a friend, and we can see who gets less fat quicker... (really good English).

Anyway, so after High School, I attended Weber State University for a Semester and then served a mission in the Philippines. I left at 210 pounds and returned at 180 pounds. Gotta love the Philippines.
Anywho, when I returned a re-entered school without a clue what I wanted to do. So I took classes randomly in order to perhaps get some sort of idea what I wanted to do. I settled on Hospital Administration and am a year off of completion.
In 2004, I (meaning my Mom made me) tried out for the singing group 'Choralairs' at the Ogden LDS Institute. She told me if I didn't use my talent and try, I would be kicked out of the house... My Mom is a smart woman... I made the group and within 5 months I was dating the future Mrs. Peterson.
Megan and I were married in November that year in the Bountiful Temple. We currently have 2 boys. Tucker is 2, and Aidan is 9 months. They are a handful, but we are as happy as we can be as parents. We currently reside in Layton, UT.
I am currently employed with United Healthgroup in West Valley, Ut as a Technical Analyst. I manage the software that most doctors offices use to bill their claims. When I finish school, I am in a prime location to move on to Hospital Administration.
Megan is a graduate of Roy High School, and is a very accomplished singer. She has produced her own CD, and I can guarantee you will see her on American Idol in 2009. Just don't tell her I said anything. :)
