New Update

Ok... a LOT has happened since I last posted anything. It's been a LONG time... but here are the highlights.

Adam Wiseman joined Alexis and Matt's little family in March of 2010. They have since moved from California to Utah and have been super busy with Alivia and Adam. And Matt is getting ready to attend Physical Therapy School. We are so excited they are closer to us!

Drew married Megan Reynolds in October of 2010. We are so excited to have her part of the family. She fits rights in and it feels like she's been a Baumgartner forever. Drew and Megan live in Utah and will both be attending medical school after graduating from BYU. Go Cougars!

Kyler is now 14... it's hard to believe he's getting so old. It makes Rog and I feel like we are super old. He is super active playing tennis, participating in football and track, and has a ton of friends. He's a great kid...

As soon as I have new pics, I'll post. I may not post a ton, but I'll try to do it more than once a year!

Ok... This post might be a little long, but you won't want to miss the pictures below! Rog and I spent a week with some great friends in Cozumel. They are all divers so Rog got certified and I just came to soak up the sun. My favorite event was spending time with an orphanage and we were able to attend the LDS church in Cozumel. It was an awesome experience to help children and then listen to the local people talk about how grateful they are for their families. Here are the pictures:

Rog posing off of our balcony. We were on the 6th floor and faced the beautiful ocean.

This is the view from the inside of the condo. It was so peaceful and we spent the nights laughing together in this very spot.

This is a shot of the blue/green water. The dive boat came and picked everyone up at a dock close to the hotel and I spent the days at the side of the pool.

What a great sunset!!!

Here we are with our friends the Gouberts and Ingersolls. We had just hung pictures up in this house. Maria and Elias were the cutest kids!

This is our little friend Florisita. She was at the orphanage campus and one of the sweetest children I have ever met.

Daniella was quite the charmer. She talked so fast we couldn't really understand her. But Rog and I really wanted to bring her home with us.

Our favorite lunch place. I'm not sure what look Rob (in the blue shirt) is giving us. But the guys hated the pictures.

The guys after they did a night dive. They wanted to catch a lobster and cook it for dinner, but we knew they would never actually catch it.

Rog and I posing for a picture on the beach. Rog is not a fan of posing in a picture. He likes candid ones. Oh well... this is for the grand kids.

We met a great young man in the market and then found out he was LDS. He went to the same ward that we attended on Sunday. His name is Carlos and he is excited to get his education at BYU some day. Go Cougars!

Another pose shot at La Choza. A great local restaurant. We found out on this trip that Eric likes Linda's soft hair, Rog is a pot stirrer, Rob likes to catch seafood to cook and the ladies are pretty much normal.

Handing out gloves

Our Christmas Eve tradition...
We have a tradition on Christmas Eve to go hand out gloves to the homeless downtown. Rog came up with this idea about 5 years ago and we have been doing it ever since. It is great to see them put on warm gloves as it is so cold outside. Rog will not let us just hand them out, we spend time talking to them and finding out a little about them. It has made us so much more appreciative of our many blessings and we are so happy to help in a small way.

Here we are outside a government building in downtown Denver. It was VERY cold that day!

Here are Alexis, Matt and Alivia (hidden under the blanket). Matt was so happy to go this year and you can tell how Alexis was feeling.

New Family Pics

Here are a few new family photos. This cute girl in Utah who takes fantastic family photos took these.

This has to be the cutest baby ever!!! I am partial, but she is definitely one of the cutest babies I've ever seen. Just like her mom!

This is the only picture that doesn't make me look like I'm 100 years old. I love Roger's smile and his cool glasses.

Kyler is extremely photogenic. He looks great in all his pictures. He's really grown up a lot this year!

The family all together. We missed Drewber!

Alexis, Matt and Alivia had some great pictures. Here is one of my favorites. It should be in a magazine!

New pictures of Elder Drewby!

Ok... if you want to see a funny video go to the blog that Alexis did for Drew. You will see the link to the left. Here are some pictures he sent.

He has a lot of thinking pictures.

Drew's companion dislocated his finger. They must have been playing hard on p-day.

Drew is so good with people and I'm sure the kids in CA love him!

I'm not sure who this is, but I know he attended the baptism of someone he taught in one of his first areas.

Ok... Even though I don't have any pictures, I thought I should update everyone on what is going on with the Baums. High points of November.... we finished decorating for Christmas, Kyler has a new tennis coach (and he is really good), Drew is doing awesome on his mission and loves the people of Roseville, CA, Alexis and Matt are doing great in Utah with the cutest baby ever, Alivia and Rog is winning lots of tennis tournaments and is getting certified to scuba dive. I know this is a small sampling of the many events that occurred during the busy lives of the Baums (not really, our lives are pretty boring according to Kyler), but this is all you are getting after a very tough BYU loss to the UTES. Watch out next year big red!!!
