New Job for the Q's!

Chris started his new job a few weeks ago and is enjoying it. We were hoping and waiting for the Police academy to work out but then Chris was approached by the owners of Chuck A Rama and they asked if he would be interested in management. He said yes and now he works at The Bountiful Chuck A Rama as the Service Manager. They are building a restaurant in Logan Utah sometime in the next year and Chris will be a Manager there. We are happy to have this new job and even happier to be moving to a smaller town soon.

Owen is growing super fast and Learning a bunch of new Sign Language Signs. He's saying more words and read his first word, which of course was 'dad'. He decided to go through the flash cards I made him, grabbed the one that said DAD on it, came up to me and was saying and signing it to me. He still absolutely loves his dog Sadie and likes to call her name whenever he doesn't see her. He even signs her name:) He'll sign dad and Sadie but not Mom, that's ok:)He learned what Tongue is and loves to show it whenever we ask him to show us. He loves keys and playing at the park. Yesterday, He went down a slide by himself and he just loves to climb and eat the wood chips. Sadie Even loves to go down the slides with us and she even gets to play with the kids at the park.

We are just all doing great and can't wait for the Logan store to open:)

May 2010

The Qualheim Family is doing great! Owen is keeping the three of us busy (Chris, Sadie and I)and Chris is busy with work. Chris is still working for Chuck-a-Rama and doing short sales and I get to stay home and play with Owen all day :)

As some of you may know, Chris won't be joining the Police Force for Nevada but will actually become a service manager for Chuck-a-Rama by the end of this year. Chuck-A-Rama is building a new store in the Logan, Utah area, so we will be moving there sometime around November. We are just thrilled to have him start a career this year! Chuck-A-Rama has been a great company to work for and we are just excited that they were interested in Chris and asked him if he wanted to become a manager. When one door closed, one opened and we jumped on it!

Owen is just tons of fun! He says so many words and he's only 12 and a half months old. Mom, Dad, Sadie, Ball, Mil(milk) Down, sit, sppp(speak), Mo(more), dog, kit(kitty), nan(banana) See(he points to what he's looking at)
He also can show you where his nose is when you ask and he will show us where ours is also. He loves to give super wet kisses and lots of hugs, and will stick his tongue out if we show him ours.
Chris will belch and Owen will imitate that noise:)
He is just a very active little guy that just loves his dog to pieces. He's always looking for her,laying on her, sharing his food, sharing her food,bed,cage, leash everything.

We are going on a family cruise in the middle of June and Disney Land. We're going with my dad's side of the family so we are really excited! As far as anything else exciting, thats about it:)

New Job

Well, Chris was offered a Manager position for chuck-A-Rama here in Utah and we are going to take it! With no new news on whether there will be a police Academy in Vegas this year, we are excited! He will start training soon and then he will become the Service Manager at the new Chuck-a-Rama that is being built in Logan, Utah.

Owen had his first ear infection but he is doing awesome. Nothing phases him :) Owen's new word is NO and he is walking on his own! He will walk from one end of the room to the other, so that is fun and exciting! Sadie is still his best friend and he loves to crawl in her cage when she's in there.

We are all doing great and are excited to have Chris start his new job so he can have a couple days off a week. We hope you are all doing great!

Family update Feb 28th 2010

Chris and I are excited to celebrate my Grandparent's Anniversary by going on a cruise with the whole family in June! As for the Police Academy, rumors are that they will have one in July, so we are keeping our fingers crossed! We are ready to move forward.

Owen's offical first word is Sadie (our dog)and he says mom and dad. He absolutely loves his dog and she doesn't mind all the pinching, hitting, biting, grabbing, pulling he inflicts on her:) We are really lucky to have a good dog that won't bite him at all. She's a great babysitter. He's still crawling like crazy but not walking yet. He is finally sleeping through the night!

Overall, we are all doing great. We are excited for the Summer and to do some fun activities together.
