Alright, time for another update, and then we will be back on track! Good thing too, because it I have been itching to get back at my blog for a while!!!

On January 29 we planned a big friend get together out at Mark and Lanny's. We were going to go ice fishing, sledding, quading, and have a bon fire and drink hot chocolate!!! Well it didn't quite happen like that, but we did go ice fishing and drank some hot chocolate and tea! Barry and Kathy came. I really wanted to get a picture with them, but we were soooo frozen by the time they got there that it just never happened. (I couldn't feel my limbs as it was :-) Since we know Evan will not be walking we have already started to make some adjustments of our own. We bought a sleigh/sled for him and we can pull him around anywhere! We just bundled him up and off we went. I was so paranoid about him getting cold I really packed on the layers, and it worked too. I reached down inside his coat to check his temprature and he was toasty!



This is the family all together out on the ice. My and my grandma Shaw. Evan with Granny Lanny, and Evan and Daddy!


I had to add the Vampire picture! My little Edward!

New Years Eve we went to my Grandma Leavitt's 80th birthday party. It was fun, and how many kids get to have a picture with 2 of their Great Grandma's???? Lucky Evan!

After Christmas we were lucky enough to have my Grandma Shaw staying with us, and my cousin and her husband stayed with us too!! It was sooo fun to have so much family in our home! I love it and can't wait for this week when my mom and Grandpa Shaw are going to be here. :-)

We always knew he had brains!!!

There is something here called hore frost and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!! It only happens when there is alot of moisture in the air ... or at least that's what they tell me! It is what is covering the trees ... not snow.


BAD HAIR DAY????


He's a mans man baby!!! Evan is eating his ribs in preparation for the big game. Yes everyone, I mad ribs ... and they were GOOD!!!! If anyone is wondering what the big game was ... shame on you!!!! :-) On January 8, 2008 the University of Florida football team creamed the Oklahoma Sooners in the National Championship Game!!!!!!!!!!!

It is Great (uh huh) to be (a what?) a FLORIDA GATOR!!!!
CHOMP!

Love the pictures and it looks too cold for me! The last two days it's been in the 80's. I don't think I'm going to fare well.

Nice pictures Kira. It is so good to see so many relatives. That is what is so bad about living far away from your roots. The pictures of the frost are beautiful. I'm jealous that mom gets to see you and I don't. Bummer. You guys have fun.
