HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my godbrother, SHO!
Hope all is well with you...and quit being a stranger, holmes!

Sho with mom (May 2000)

I'm heading back up North on Thursday...and this time, I'll be gone for almost a month! This will be my longest visit yet! Aric's going to miss his lil' girl very much. He keeps worrying that Ashlyn won't remember him. =T Anyhow, I'm going up for Ivy. Her bridal shower is this weekend, then her bachelorette thingy is next weekend (I don't know if we're keeping our plans a surprise, so I won't divulge anymore information), then her wedding is the following weekend! YAY! I'm really excited for her. I know hearts are breaking everywhere!
Peg: *teasingly* "Honey, you know Ivy's getting married soon. You better speak now or forever hold your peace."
Aric: *embarassed* "yeah, whatever."
HAHAHAHA! Aric used to have the BIGGEST crush on Ivy for the longest time. HAHAHAHA!

..until she got tired (look at those chunky thighs!)

I didn't do anything exciting today. I just wanted to get some stuff done around the house before I left. I did a few loads of laundry, rearranged Ashlyn's closet (and put away clothes she can no longer fit into), cleaned our bathrooms, and vacuumed the house. Ashlyn was great...she played quietly on our bed while I did all that. For a baby, she's real easy to take care of. Real low-maintenance, and only fusses when she's hungry. I consider myself pretty lucky.

This time I'm going to bring my laptop with me and try to keep the webpage updated. I know this trip will be keeping me pretty busy, but we'll see. =)
