Shalyn's month of December

From party's to the park Shalyn did it all and December isn't even over. In this slideshow you'll see just how many events she took part in. Now it is time to slow down a bit and have a relaxing family Christmas in 2 days.

- Salena, Maya, & Ella's neighborhood Christmas extravaganza w/ trains and trolleys, movies & slides
- Grant's friends Christmas picnic w/ crafts & more
- St Augustine Amphitheatre's Winter Wonderland w/ ice skating, smores, elf village and sleigh horse rides

Canyon 3 Mnths in December

It's been an exciting 3 months with Canyon in our family. He loves it when Shalyn makes him smile and laugh. He has a special Blue Blanket and rubs his face when he gets it. It puts him to sleep. He weighs 13 lbs. and has blue eyes still. Shalyn had blue eyes until 7months then turned brown. We'll see what God has in store for our little Canyon. He is sleeping well at night but starting to cry early in the a.m. Shalyn is a great big sister and loves to help calm him when he cries.

Thanksgiving Weekend in Miami Nov 2008

A 5 hour drive turned to 7 hours just to get to WPB. Ouch. Looking back there wouldn't be a thing that I would change. We had a blast in Miami. Catching up with Haley's family. Playing the Wii, some cards, and even frying a turkey with cousin Massey. Shalyn had a chance to play with the girl cousins. Canyon and Grant will have a hard time being macho in this family. We stopped by the Dukes house and had the best pork chops in the world. Thanks Danny. Kudos to Aunt Joann for the great thanksgiving meal. In my case I should say meals.

Keep in touch!

Shalyn's 3rd Bday & more from October

Happy 3rd Birthday Shalyn!

October: Canyon pics & Shalyn's Halloween

We had an exciting month of October.
Haley had a chance to enjoy some time with Canyon during her maternity. She even took care of Bretton for one day. Uncle Eric stopped by the house during his week in Athens GA. Sorry Sue but Eric saw Canyon 1st.

Shalyn and Haley baked cookies for the local Fire station. The firemen let Shalyn tour the garage and climb into the firetruck. They appreciated Shalyn taking the time to visit.

Shalyn dressed as a Penguin, Canyon (bear), Haley (Strawberry Shortcake), & Hector (Handy Manny) for the School Carnival. The kids toured the classrooms and trick or treated inside. Shalyn even went on the train and a super bounce house slide.

On Halloween night we tailgated in front of the house passing out candy. Hector's front yard maze was a hit. Although the grass has yet to recover from the 100's of kids.
