2009 Christmas Letter

Dear Family and Friends,

Another year has come and gone. It is amazing how much can actually happen even though it feels as if we have no time do anything. We have been very blessed this year in selling out house in a bad market. We are very excited for our future and hope to have our own home again by the end of the summer. Until then my mom has been kind enough to let us stay with her. Here is a catch up on what has been going on with us this past year.

Mitch is still working for my mom at Dance Designs Inc. He is also getting ready for his 5th year of snowmobile racing in the Rocky Mountain Hill climb Association. He has started a blog so family and friends can follow his season. He is playing on a men’s basketball out at Fort Hall and is having a lot of fun with that.

I am still working every other weekend at the hospital doing dispatch for life flight. I love my job and that it allows me to do what I have always wanted to do and that is stay at home with my children. I have loved this last year and what they have taught me. I am finding a new love for baking (not so much cooking though).

Alivia, has matured so much this last year. She is a beautiful 3 year old who will be 4 next month (time flies). She is going to Pre School at Grace Lutheran and is so smart. She amazes us daily. She currently loves Twilight, Barbie’s, Grey’s Anatomy and has decided she wants to be a Heart Surgeon when she grows up. She is healthy and is currently doing so well at her school. Her teacher says she is so polite and is very caring about the other students.

Austin is our quiet man who is slowly becoming alive. He will turn 2 in April. He didn’t start talking much til this past month. His favorite word: FOOTBALL. He loves all sports and loves to go watch his aunt and uncle’s basketball games. He will sit glued watching the players run up and down the court. Austin is a wonderful eater I only point that out because Alivia is so picky so I have enjoyed feeding Austin. He also is a very happy guy. His smile melts our heart even his big sis.

Well that is the update from the Sherman’s –Please follow our blog we update regularly with our family happenings. We hope everyone has a safe and Happy Holiday wherever you may be~
Love, The Shermans

New Moon

My bestfriends, Shamae and Jessie bought tickets to the new moon premiere party. We have been waiting (not so patiently) for the big night. It was a lot of fun, it was full of laughing, ooh and ahhing and a little bit of blushing. We cannot wait til Elcipse!
Here we are just hanging with the guys.
Little sis showed up late because she had a bball game -- guess it was worth it cause they won!
Shamae with Edward...
I wanted to pose with both of them, I didn't want either to feel left out.
Jessie, they were smittened by her. Edward almost smiled when she put her arm around him.

Playing Cullen Baseball

Yes Jessie is a pro --

She even hit a home run!

Shamae at bat ....

Alivia asks me daily when she wakes up if it has snowed. And daily I tell her yes...but only in the mountains. She is then disappointed. So today I got off work and carefully drove to Fred Meyers and bought these....Cause guess what she gets to wake up to,**I know it is not a lot, but it is enough to satisfy a 3 year old girl who has been waiting and waiting for this wonderful white stuff we call SNOW!

for Mama Mia fans . . .

Last night Alivia went to the movie with her cousins and grandma. When she got home I asked her how it was. She said good. Then I asked what she did after the movie -- she said:

"we went to the beach, We danced at the beach and . . ."

She is the best I love that she can make me laugh!

My 1st Button

I added a button on the left under friends. It is indeed my first button. Click it and enjoy!!! I sure have!

Halloween 2009

This year was not that exciting of a halloween for us. We didn't get to decorate due to the move so we never really got into the true spirit fo halloween. But we did make the best of it. Alivia was Island Princess. Although she was set out to be Jasmine since May but we couldn't find her costume. We think it is in a box that went to storage.

Friday before Halloween I took the kids to Liv's school carnival. Both kids had a lot of fun!
Even Austin did a few games!
This is a cute little pumpkin Liv made at pre school -- I was a dummy and forgot to take a picture of it when she brought it home. So I took this a few days later and the paint had started to chip. It was cute and our only halloween decor we had this year!
Here they are -- Island princess and spiderman the fireman (or as we decided in the end a little nacho libre).

Here is the island princess showing off her beauty. I got her all dalled up so she could go trick or treating with a friend since I had to work. Well she hung out with Mitch and handed out candy to the trick or treaters. It must have wore her out. She left with her friend and returned 2 minutes later cause she was too tired to trick or treat. Oh well. She still made out good.
Before I went to work we took the kids to a few houses so I could see them trick or treat.

This is actually my moms house. We had just left, but new she was dying her hair so we thought we would ring the doorbell and make her answer it with all the dye in her hair. It was funny-- she would have killed me if I put a picture of it though!This is are old neighbors house. Alivia told her she would go trick or treat there so we made it one of our stops. Then I was off to work.
Here is a cute picture of Austin sporting grandma's shades!
See ya later!
