2009 is Great!

On Friday, February 13, the McLuens had a scary movie party at their house. Gail and Elijah came for awhile. They didn't stay for the movie part. After they left we watched the movie Prom Night, and made fun of how predictable it was. Our friend Elizabeth Hunnicutt was there, and she was very focused on the movie. At one suspenseful point in the movie, I touched her shoulder, she screamed, then Chiva (the McLuens' dog) jumped onto the couch and got right in Elizabeth's face. It was a great time!

Here's Chiva. She's huge and still a puppy. When she would come up to Elijah, he would lean forward and open his mouth, trying to give her a kiss.

Elijah has started to smile for the camera, as evidenced above.

Here I am making Elijah a vampire. I've been watching too much Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He didn't put up much of a fight.

Here we are, Elijah the vampire and me, his sire.

Smiling again. He's too cute. I can't believe he's almost one!

On Sunday, the 15, the Rimbos, Petersons, and Swansons (Derek and Michelle) gathered at the Rimbos' house in Monticello. We are meeting once a month to discuss some major life changing decisions.

Justin pretended he was Alton Brown and made us all french toast for breakfast. It was delicious!

While Justin was cooking I was taking pictures. Owen and his god-father spent some time together. Later that day, Graham changed his first baby diaper ever! Owen went easy on him, and Graham did a great job!

Michelle loved playing with Owen. Right after this picture, though, Owen spit up on her. She didn't really care because he's so cute. I have to agree!

I had a little photo shoot with Owen and I really like how this one ended up.

Owen has a fascination with his socks. Last Thursday when I was watching him he pulled his sock off and put it in his mouth. It stayed in his mouth for about 5 minutes!


  1. I love how concerned Elijah looks when you're siring him. Not as concerned as when he sees Graham, but still. Sort of a "Oh, well."

  2. He simply resigned himself to his destiny.
