Life is Great!


Well the new year is off to a great start. Sage is getting so big. We are sad that our families can not be here all of the time to see all of the magic he makes happen each day. He is learning to roll over, sit up, jibber jabber, smile laugh, and most of all surprise us each and every day. He rather stand than sit. Maybe because we keep telling him that as soon as he can stand he can ski. Recently he has gotten into the jumper and the saucer full of toys that his cousins have passed down to us. We are also really excited because Chris and Allyson are going to have their baby soon. Shawn is going to be there for the birth to help Allyson make it through and hopefully rub off some great energy on her.

2008 year in review


Well 2008 has come to an end and what an eventful year it has been. In January Ben asked me to marry him and just a week later we found out we were pregnant. The whole immediate family joined us in Oahu for our wedding celebration in March. We spent the summer by the pool and traveling to California. I August friends and family celebrated Ben's 30th birthday with us at the Big Lost Ranch. I returned to work at the end of August. After working for 4 weeks I gave birth to our beautiful son Sage Ryder Schumacher. During my maternity leave we traveled to Seattle, Spokane, and California to introduce Sage to our family and friends. We spent Thanksgiving in Sun Valley with friends and the Schumachers came for a visit for Christmas. New years was spent with friends here in Sun Valley. Now it is 2009 and we look forward to many joyous occasions this year as well!
