The Houston's and Christmas 08

Since we have been back in Asheville (our home base) we have been so lucky to have found the best place in town to stay. Julie Houston and her two boys Clay and Reed let us park our 40' home in their driveway. They have shared everything with us, including communal meals, crafting sessions, late night TV video series watching, lots of Pokemon trading, skateboarding and flying around the yard on brooms. The kids created a clubhouse in her shed. We felt so blest to spend this Holiday season with Julie and her boys. Thanks again for everything Julie.

Happy New Year! Looks like you all had a great Christmas (looking over your last few posts). So what's next after the firework stand? Isabelle looks super grown up in the pics. I really like her hat!

I loved those pretzels. They were gone the night I got them. Curtis says, "Cool Pokemon!"...Which one is your best? I am glad to know that you have a great friend who allows you to use her driveway.
HAPPY 2009!!!

Curtis wanted me to leave a message for Connor..."Hey, I wish you could come after your trip to Mexico. I really miss you & can't wait to see you again." "Do you have your own laptop?" Email me at my mom's email till she can remember what mine is. Miss you!
