What a busy month. How did you ever stay alive being pregnant during all of that. I am glad you did stay alive by the way.

Man, you guys were busy. Greg's gonna be so jealous when he sees that Cade went camping in the snow/ice. He talks about doing it all the time. I'm so glad I got to see your belly!!! You look so great! Can't wait to see your little one! And, as always, loved your video. We discovered Bright Eyes Christmas Carols on our IPOD this year and I'm pretty sure we got that from you guys!!!! Thanks again. I had no idea what wonderous music we were getting from you guys that night. Was that the last night we saw you? I have no idea.

Ashley, I saw that you are reading These is my words. I love that book. LOVE that book. The second one is not as good as the first in my opinion, but I hope you enjoy it. I didn't realize until the end of the book that it wasn't actually a real journal, . . . but still good. Hope all is well!

You were busy busy busy (said in the bad guys voice in Frosty). Thanks again for taking those great pic's. You forgot a party though: Shafer's 30th at Red Lobster. My favorite was that after dinner we sat in the food court at the mall till we were practially asleep and then stumbled out to our cars and Cade says, "So we aren't going to a movie then?" That guy is always up for a party.
