Where the heck did December go?

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Here we are at the halfway mark of December and way too much has happened. It’s like it snowed but instead of snow I got stuff dumped everywhere.

Backtracking briefly, Hawaii for Thanksgiving was WONDERFUL. Miles is such a cutie (E&S’s soon-to-be 5 year old). We were hanging out in the hottub and he said, “Shelby, you know what?” And I said “what?” and he said “You can pee in the ocean.” And I laughed and said yes you can. And then he got even MORE serious and said, “but NOT in the pool.” I almost peed in the hottub right about then.

miles under table This is where Miles liked to hang out and ask Courtland all those “WHY” questions. It was so cute (From the other side of the room it also looked like Court was talking to himself).

Miles taught us how to boogie board.

Do I wish we were still there?

Yes. Yes I do.

Courtland got glasses and I told everyone I traveled with BACKUP (aka Nicholas) since everyone thought they were twins.
