Pictures! Pictures! Pictures!

As we promised, we have pictures to share. Enjoy!

Christmas 2008 006

Here's Mommy and me in front of our Christmas tree. Isn't it pretty? Daddy took this picture with the new camera when we got home from Grandma and Grandpa Fouts' house on Christmas Eve.

Here I am opening up a present at Great Grandma and Grandpa McCollum's house. I think this one had a book in it. I love reading, so this will come in handy!

Christmas 2008 060

This was taken the day after Christmas and Grandma and Grandpa Benner's house. It was a happy day... I even got a cool new backpack that I'll get to wear when we go on vacation in June and July.

This picture was taken at my Great Aunt Susie and Uncle Mick's house on Sunday. I can't quite remember what I'm looking at, but I got lots of really fun toys that I can't wait to play with when I get home.

I hope you enjoy them! As I do more around the house, I'm sure I'll have more to share! Don't forget to check back often for more pictures and more about me! Have a safe and happy New Year!

Welcome to my site! I hope you all found your way here fairly easy. I just want to do a quick update for all of you so I'm not a fibber when I say I'm going to update it once a week. I'm actually away from Mommy and Daddy right now, so Mommy is writing this all for me.

Ashland wanted to thank all of you for making his third Christmas awesome! He had so much fun opening all of his gifts, and seeing family that he doesn't get to see all of the time. He got a new tricycle, a sled, and lots of books. He loves his trike and is waiting for some snow to fall before we can go sledding.

He is staying with Grandma and Grandpa Benner for a few days this week while Tyler and I work. Having a week of family time was wonderful!! Ashland loves being home when Mommy and Daddy are home at the same time.

I don't know how to post pictures, but as soon I learn, or when Tyler thinks of it, we will get some posted. Look back in a few days for another update (containing pictures).

Hope you all aren't blowing away! It's really windy here in Angola. We are keeping warm and grounded by taking down the Christmas tree and decorations. Thanks to all of you for making Ashland's Christmas one to remember!

Lots of Love from the Benners!

Merry Christmas!

It's been snowing outside like crazy, so I figured something was up! Turns out, Mommy and Daddy told me that Christmas is just around the corner! I'm super excited to see all of the family in the next week or so, but I'm even more excited that Mommy and Daddy don't have to work for a whole week! Since they both work at Trine, they get a week off, PAID! It's a pretty sweet deal since I not get to eat all of my meals with the whole family, rather than just lunch with Mommy and dinner with Daddy.

Speaking of food, I found a new favorite! My new favorite food are grapes! I love grapes! I'm not sure if it's just because they're sweet, or crunchy, or just my size, but I love grapes! Mommy had to go get me my own bag at Wal-Mart because I wanted a snack and we didn't have any. But now it's my favorite snack.

Well, it's late so I had better go. I just wanted to say Hi! to everyone and let them know that this is the new home for all of my newsletters. I've gone paperless and I hope to write more often than once a month. We'll see you all soon! Safe travels and love you lots!
