Mom, why do you keep taking all these pictures of me?

Life has been so crazy, but also a lot of fun at the Nate household this fall! We've been holding on for dear life while Andrea works full-time and juggles being a new mom, and while Preston attends law school full-time and holds down a part-time job! Andrea went back to work at the end of September, and Preston took over Packer-duties! He is a great Mr. Mom! He is also taking 15 credits of law school, taking mostly evening classes so that he can watch the boy during the day. On top of that, he is also still working at the hotel, being the night auditor every weekend, and he is in the Elder's Quorum presidency! CRAZY! We had Preston's whole family out here from Utah for Thanksgiving and for Packer's blessing. Andrea's Dad made it out here from South Dakota for the blessing as well. We had a fun Halloween taking Packer around to see all our neighbors (no candy this year buddy!). Andrea's mom came out for a visit at the end of October and got to see Packer for the first time! We're now looking forward to flying out to Utah to visit family and attend Preston's brother's wedding! We love watching our little man learn and grow everyday, nothing beats being parents. We can't believe Packer is already 5 months old! Time goes by way too fast!
