Been awhile since we last updated this so we will let you know what''s been going on with everyone!
Matthew went on his first ski trip to Colorado with Dad the weekend of February 19th. He had an absolute ball (once he got past Saturday and the learning period of learning how to ski!). He is excited to go back next year! He is doing incredibly well at school and has suprised his mom and dad with his abilities in math and reading. I can''t believe this is the same kid that started kindergarten not but 7 months ago!
Allison has been sick off and on since about Christmas. Her immunity ought to be good and built up by the time she goes to school! We think it was another child at daycare that kept passing stuff around....her mommy kept insisting on bringing her little one in instead of keeping her home until she was better, so the rest of us got sick. Oh well. Allie is now out of that daycare and things have improved significantly. Now the doctor bills are coming in......geezch. But the bouts of the flu, cold, rashes, fever, etc., haven''t seemed to stop her growth spurt. She''s as tall as ever and talking nonstop!
Check out the photo albums! We received some really cute pictures of Ema (send more guys!!), Kaden and Hunter....and there are more pics of Matthew and Allie there, too.
Well, here we head into March with Easter just around the corner. We are attempting to teach Matthew about Lent....I think he still thinks that it is little fuzzies in his pocket! May you all have a reflective Lenten season and a Joyous Easter!!
A new baby was born today! Our neice, Ema Elizabeth Arasmith was born this morning around 3:30 a.m. She was 7 lbs, 18 1/2 inches long and very blonde, just like daddy! We can''t wait to see all three of them! With Mom and Dad''s permission, I hope to have some pictures of Ema up on the website soon.....it''s been a long road to get Ema here healthy, so we are so excited to hear that Mom and Baby are doing so well!
Well, on January 1, 2005, Eric and Chris were honored to be present as Godparents at Hunter Danielle''s baptism. And on January 23, 2005, Chris was also Godmother for Kaden Trent on his Christening Day. We are excited for these 2 little ones as they journey through life, bathed in the waters of Christ! We are truly blessed to be part of both of their lives as family but more importantly as their prayer partners. God Bless both of you and may you always turn to Jesus for all things. We love you both.
