Christmas Day

Here is a Picture of Jesse and Jack after our Christmas Eve candlelight service at our Church. We've definately been blessed with an amazing church to go to - Jack has made many little friends in the nursery!

What a lucky little boy Jack was! Santa brought him some cups/plates, books and a computer game system. Mummy and Daddy were the big heroes and got him a wooden train set!

We were very lucky to have been invited around to Jesse's Aunt and Uncle's (his Mom's sister) for lunch on Christmas Day. Aunt Adell, Uncle Savas, Luca and Alicia live in Bradenton (about an hours drive from us) but we're all usually so busy that we rarely get to visit. It was a special treat as well because Jesse's other Aunt and Uncle (Aunt Linda and Uncle David) were visiting from Atlanta.

Here is a picture of their dog Joey. He is such a sweet dog and has quite a funny hairstyle!

Christmas Party

We had a Christmas party at work - it was a lot of fun! I work with some CRAZY people (what can I say, we're massage therapists!) but I really had a blast. I'm so blessed to have been able to find a place that I really enjoy going to - the people really make it! Here I am with Nicole and Luis, 2 of the funniest people on the planet!

Here's a pic of me and my boss Craig. I'm thinking about nominating him for the next season of "The Bachelor!" - He's a great person to work for!!!!

Our trip to South Carolina...

We drove up to South Carolina in early November for Josh and Rachel's wedding. I went to high school with Josh and over the years he's become one of my best friends so it was really a pleasure to be invited to his destination wedding! Jesse was part of the bridal party.

It was a beautiful wedding (from what I could see ... Jack threw quite a tantrum so I watched most of it from the side of the hotel building!) and we really enjoyed seeing friends who we hadn't seen in years!

It was a special treat to be able to see Adam and his wife Rebecca and their baby Noah!

The wedding was definately not complete without seeing Jose! He is the life of the party and we really enjoyed hanging out with him - he made us all laugh every minute we were there!

Jack Loved hanging out (literally!) with "Nanny LeAnn" - he an LeAnn got on VERY well! I miss all of our friends!!!

Thanks Josh and Rachael for letting us join in on your special day!!! May you have many happy years together!

Don't have a heart attack...

But there's a new blog up!!! Can you believe it?! (neither can I!)

Here's a recent picture of Jesse and Jack from one of our trips over to Disney. We bought annual passes this year (for Jack's birthday) and have been getting quite a lot of use out of them!!! The above picture if of Jack and I outside the "Finding Nemo" ride (yes, I'm wearing a Disney lanyard; Yes, I am a dork.)

Jack is now 32 months old (or, as I say, 2 1/2!) and definately a little boy. He loves trains/planes/helicopters/cars...and guns (or as he calls them - piu piu's! Must be all of that gaming that Daddy likes to do!)

We've really been trying to take advantage of seeing the area around here as it's our last one in Clearwater. We are sad but very excited about what the future is bringing! (more sad at the friends that we'll have to say goodbye to - we really have formed some wonderful friendships down here!).

For those that don't know (though I have no idea how you couldn't :-P ) we have only a few places that we could end up: Kodiak, AK (we have a group of friends hoping we get that one!); Astoria, OR (close to Jesse's family and some other friends of ours); Cape Cod, MA or Elizabeth City, NC (there are a few more but Jesse didn't put those on his list, hopefully we won't get those!)

Recent Pictures

We recently went out to Portland, Oregon to the "Culver Family Reunion!" We really enjoyed meeting everyone from Jesse's extended family and our side trip over to Astoria was very relaxing!

Jesse also got the chance to meet his best friend from childhood Stephen. We both
had not seen Stephen since our wedding (he was Jesse's best man) so that was a very exciting lunch for us!

We took a quick trip to MGM this Saturday - Jesse had never been and I hadn't been in years! It was so much fun! Our favorite part was when we caught the characters coming into the park - Dale (of Chip and Dale fame) took a liking to Jack and took his hand and walked around part of the park with him and then introduced him to Chip. It was so very cute! Jack couldn't stop giving them hugs and kisses (It's been my experience that C and D at all of the parks seem to be the nicest characters and are slowly becoming my favorite!) We also got to see Minnie and Goofy and watched the parade.

Another Baseball game!

We went to see the Clearwater Threshers (feeder team for the Phillies) and the Vero Beach Devil Rays (feeder team for the Devil Rays - how original!) play at Brighthouse field. It was a lot of fun as we got together with a few families from the Airstation with whom we've become very good friends with. Jack really enjoyed throwing the ball around with all of the little boys there.
