Tuba Christmas

They have been doing the Tuba Christmas since 1974. Ethan was able to to the Tuba Christmas this year. It has been held down at the Jacksonville Landing for the last 15 years or so. It was fun to watch and Ethan really enjoyed doing it.

Emma's 4 Birthday Party's

Emma had 4 birthday parties this year. She turned 4 on December 9th. We started the parties with a trip for just the two girls to Disney world. This year Disney let pass holders get the amount of a ticket to spend in the park. Emma wanted a dress but ended up with 5 things.... Tinker bell tinnies, Minnie mouse light up thing, Tinker bell coloring book, Sleeping Beauty Jewelry box, and a mix and match Princess book. Not a bad trip. We were able to eat Breakfast with the princesses in Cinderella's Castle also.

For her Second Party we went to Ollie koala’s with Dylan, Nora, and Morgan. They all got pizza and left with some toy from the prize store.

Emma’s Third party was at her school. Sorry we have no pictures. They sang Happy Birthday to her and had Cake.

Emma’s fourth party was here at the house with the family. We opened presents and had Cake and Ice Cream. While we were cutting the cake the top fell off. Oh well it still tasted good….

Ethan did it!!!

I know everybody has been waiting for this day for almost 3 years. November 24 2009. I have always said its just hair but it was sad to see it go..... He was able to donate his hair and that is something he was working toward. Ethan sometimes feels like his hair is just pulled back in a pony tail. Now the challenge comes with learning how to take care of short hair.

Emma has been finding was to entertain herself at the soccer and football games. Yes she is in Ethan's Stinky gear bag.(we make him keep it in the garage). She loves to take picture so you can see me at the games also....
