Catch up!

I feel as though I am always playing catch up on this thing, so I have decided I am not going to try to catch up anymore. If something fun, interesting or special happens, I am going to write about it, but I am not going to keep a comprehensive developmental blog about Everett. It is just to hard and I always feel like I am falling behind and it is a chore. Bleh!

With that in mind, the first thing I want to write about is nothing related to us. A wonderful, beautiful, amazing and creative friend of mine, Shannon, has created a blog for her Daughter. Everyone who checks out my blog needs to click here and check hers out! It is inspiring and heart warming and she has given me permission to link it to mine, so please take a look. I wish I would have thought of it! Congrats Shannon on the beautiful work (both Mac and the Blog lol)!

Now onto our life. As everyone knows, Christmas has recently passed. This was Everett's first Christmas and as much as I would like to say it is one he will never forget, he probably already has! Either way, it was a special Christmas for us as we travelled for 12 days (for the twelve days of Christmas, my true love gave to me...) and were blessed to spend time with family we rarely get to see. We started off to Vegas and spent 5 days with Brock's sister Renee and her husband Matt. They were so kind to accommodate us and even gave us their vehicle to tour around Vegas, treated us to fantastic home cooked meals and an AMAZING dinner out, got us a babysitter to watch all of the kids so we could have an adults night out (thanks to the Brandley's for letting us all go see Harry Potter) and were just wonderful to spend time with! We miss you guys!!
Then, it was off to Phoenix for another 5 days of fun! We spent these with Mark, Cheryl, Sierra, Chase and My Mom and Dad. Yup, that's right, My mom and Dad flew to Phoenix for Christmas! It was a blast, we took in great shopping, were treated to fantastic meals and beautiful scenery, and relaxed in style on a handsome GREEN golf course. We enjoyed a pool that was as warm as most hot tubs in Canada and had no snow. That made it better I think. We cannot thank Mark and Cheryl enough for opening their home to us and spoiling us rotten!
Thank you to our wonderful families for having us for the holidays. We love you very much! Forgive me, however, for a screaming sick boy is beckoning me!

Aaaw Now I do feel bad for pretending not to know you on facebook. But I know you know I was only playing! We're glad you had fun with us, and we hope you come visit again soon!
