Happy Birthday, Beth Ellen!!!! We had so much fun the past few days in Utah! We surprised Beth Ellen (Paul's oldest sister) for her 40th birthday!!! Unfortunately she ended up getting sick but we were able to pack in some good fun before she crashed hard.
Happy Birthday, BE. Hope you are starting to feel better.
For Christmas, my brother and his wife got us ticket to the Philharmonic to see the performance, BLAST!!!
It was an absolute blast for sure.
You can watch their promo video here:
This was some serious entertainment and it was myself with Paul and Zane. Zane was GLUED the entire time. It was about an hour and a half with an intermission and he was so hooked! It was just as much fun watching his face as it was to watch the performance for me!
So, Zane has been inspired, Aunt Rachael and Uncle Ben!!! He came home and the next day he sat down at his drum set which I had really thought he has lost interest in, and began playing like this next video. He will play like this now for a very LONG time. He is so focused and he has entirely picked this up from this show and this show only! It is awesome.
We really wish that Ben and Rachael had been with us of course. They are so great about their gifts and are always trying to find performances like this one to gift us along the way. I swear, without them our culture and art exposure would be starved. (They are the ones who took us to Zane's first ever concert when he was about 7 months old and of course it is such a cool one to say is your "first concert"!!! It was Old Crow Medicine Show and if you don't know them... check em out for sure.)
So a thank you show to Uncle Ben and Aunt Rachael...
WE LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!!
- I went on to live this year loving my family and friends.
- I learned how to take deep meaningful breathes.
Thank you to so many. For loving me, supporting me, hugging me, helping me through and then letting me figure out how to live this new life.
(It is weird because right now even looking at these pictures makes me feel ill and sick to my stomach. It is funny how our body and mind remembers so well. As the many years pass that will get better I hope!)
This is a blog that has turned into a terrific way for Paul and me to share our really fun & cool life. We have a beautiful son, Zane, who is our world and we have a wonderful family and group of friends that make our life perfect. This all started out in the voice of Zane but has, over time, changed into a sort of journal and has provided a way of keeping our family & friends up to date on Zane's amazing week-to-week changes and what kinds of fun we are having. We love comments and love knowing that some of you are really into it!
