Hi again

Ok, the blog needed a little facelift and I had a little time and some patience and through a little (ok a lot) of trial and error, here it is. I think I like it. I just wanted to test it out and post a couple more pictures of Ethan.

Here's the latest...

Man, time is flying by lately! I can't believe it is almost February already. Seems like we just got through Thanksgiving!

Ethan is 5 months old now and I can't believe how fast he is growing and changing. He is almost sitting up now and he is starting to babble and say da-da. I keep trying to get him to say mama but the more I try, the more he says dada. Oh well! Ethan celebrated his first Christmas and loved it. I don't have any pictures of him with Lily when they opened their gifts because my camera died! What kind of mom lets her camera battery go dead? He was so excited to open his presents and he loved all of them.

He is learning how to eat solid food now. He likes his cereal but only if it is mixed with a tasty fruity goodness. He is not so crazy about any green vegetables. He does like sweet potatoes and squash.

Everyone else is doing fine. Carrie has set a wedding date of October 10. They will be married in Princeton. Chris and Stacy have also set a date. They will be married on December 5th in Quincy. Dwaine is going to be Chris' best man and I am a bridesmaid. I guess it is actually bridesmatron since I am an old married woman. Ethan and Lily are going to be ring-bearer and flower girl. That will be a priceless picture to see. I am excited for everyone and looking forward to both upcoming weddings.

David is still in Kansas and is able to come home pretty often now. He bought a car and now has a means of transportation. He seems to be doing well and will be home to visit us again in February. The army is talking about shipping his unit to Iraq in June so keep him in your prayers that it doesn't happen. We are hoping that with the new administration, things may change.

Ryan is doing well too. Still plugging along in school and very involved in band and choir.

Well, I am hearing the baby cry so I better get going. Hope everyone is well!

Until next time,


Oh, ok one more picture
