Hope this finds you all happy and healthy. Melissa is learning new things all the time and is getting bigger too. She can now stand up without holding on to anything for a few seconds. Yesterday she moved from the rocking chair to the crib holding on to the furniture as she walked. It was not far since the chair and the crib are right next to each other, but she is getting better at standing and moving all the time. She is also getting into everything. Next time I go to Wal-Mart I will need to buy some cupboard door latches.

You may be interested in knowing that Jason re-signed his contract. He enjoys working for PCC and is looking forward to continue working for them this year. It is a busy time at work for him. The beginning of the year brings a lot of changes and updates to different programs and systems. Jason was invited to a breakfast being held next week in which all five-year personnel will be honored. He is looking forward to that.

Sunday night we had some friends over for pizza and food and enjoyed watching the second half of the Superbowl. It was a last minute spontaneous idea that ended up being a lot of fun.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!



Hi Everyone!
Hope this finds you all healthy and happy. We are all doing well here in Florida despite all the cold weather. I saw on the news that one of the local areas reporting the weather reported 17 degrees. This of course was the lowest I have heard and it was not in Pensacola, but in an area close to here. Thankfully it is now warming up a bit.

Melissa is getting more and more mobile. She has been crawling for a little more than a week now and she is getting more and more confident. First she would only crawl small distances in a room. Then she would crawl from one end of the room to the other end, and now she will crawl from the living room to the dining room. She is also getting into all kinds of things — things like the office garbage can, the VCR, the door jam spring, and Jason’s space book. The little stinker is really keeping us busy. She also is eating new things. Last Friday she had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. She makes a mess eating it, but she really likes it. She is also eating cheerios now.
Jason has been doing a lot of work over at the Planetarium doing work on programming a show. He has also been able to get a lot of things done at work and has been able to close out some job tracks for which he is very excited. At home he is busy trying to work on our website finding the best way to put the photo albums on the website. In fact the website has become our home page as a means of motivation to work on it. We also have been busy at home working on organizing and getting rid of things that we don’t need. A week ago Sat. we cleaned out the hall closet. It was a project, but it looks so great now!

Hello to all,

Life is keeping us really busy. This week has been church revival meetings, and so we have been out every night. I am keeping busy at home trying to go through things in order to organize them and to reduce clutter. Jason is keeping busy at work. He has been working a lot this week over in the planetarium.

Melissa has just added two new things to her growing list of new abilities. Today she pulled herself up to a standing position, and she also crawled for the first time! (at least that I have seen) Also the other day I went to check on her in her crib, and the little stinker was sitting up with one leg hanging out of the side slots. I have never seen her go from laying down to sitting up, so apparently now she can do it. Melissa also spent some of her Christmas money on a new doll. I think the doll looks a lot like her. Also we woke Melissa up so she could ring in the new year. There is a picture attached of that. She was sooooooooooo tired! Melissa and Joe play well together. Right now Joe is recovering from an ear infection. Also, Bren brought Joe into J.C. Penny for Christmas pictures, and yesterday Bren told me that Penny’s had called and would like to use Joe’s picture in next years promotionals. I think that is pretty neat!

Hope all is well with everyone.
