Evelyn and Emily

Evelyn is 15 months and Emily is 5 months, but they are practically the same size. Everyone always says how small Evelyn is but when you get these two together I see what people mean.

Here they are with Daddy/Uncle Keith

Evelyn loved trying to take care of Emily, she is going to be a great big sister.

Dave's Done!!!

As of Wednesday December 17th David is no longer a Nursing student, he's DONE!! We are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives. David is relieved to finally be done with school and I am so proud of all of his hard work.

On Saturday they had the pinning ceremony and David got to showcase his cherished uniform on stage.

Evelyn I were able to go on stage and do the pinning for David. Evelyn got a kick out of it and was waving excitedly to the crowed.

The rest of the ceremony was spent keeping Evelyn entertained. If you think church is hard on a one year old, try a two and a half our graduation.

After the ceremony we had a family celebration at Andiamo, Dave's favorite Italian restaurant. Then we had deserts at home with friends.

Now, David is not officially a Nurse yet... First the Board of Registered Nursing has to post his Nurse in Progress license and then he has to take the big test and pass. So, we will keep you posted but it most likely won't be official for a few more months.

A White Christmas

This weekend Evelyn and I joined David and his scouts at Brother Spute's cabin in Hunington. When we got there Fridday night there wasn't any snow so the boys cooked up a delicious dinner and we played some games; mafia, balderdash, and sardines. The boys also played Lord of the Rings Risk until around 3am but Dave, Evelyn, and I were fast asleep by then.

When we woke up the next morning we found that it had snowed and we suited up and headed out to play.

This was Evelyn's first time in the snow.

She really enjoyed sledding

Infact, she did really well in the cold, until her mitten fell off and she realized that she is not a fan of direct skin contact with snow.

Isn't she CUTE!!

If we were sending out Christmas cards this year this is the picture we would have used, but since we are not......

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Evelyn was a very happy girl until we apperently stayed two minutes too long and she had had enough. So we headed back to the cabin for a warm bath.

but not before we did some snow angles.

back at the cabin.

It snowed even more.

We had a great time and everything went very smoothly until.......

....Our car got a little BOOBOO :( We spun out on the ice on our way home and hit a car that had stopped to put chains on. We were actually really blessed that the car was there, other wise we would have ended up down the embankment. No one was hurt and we were able to borrow some chains from the people we hit since their car wasn't drivable any longer.

Walkin' down Christmas Tree Lane

Every year we do this walk and look at all the pretty lights. This year we had a small group of friends with us; Jason, Tanya, and Paige; some of their friends; Sarah, Sammy, Taylor, Terin, and Sarah's sister Julie. Christmas Tree Lane was a lot crowded this year, plus I started to cramp and Evelyn was tired, and so we didn't actually walk the whole way. But what we did see was enjoyable.
