My sister-in-law, Kelly, and her boyfriend of two years, Lionel, got engaged last night on their two year anniversary. Both Shannon and I are so excited for them as they enter a new stage in their life together.

Even though we knew it was going to happen eventually the phone call from Kelly last night was a complete surprise. I must point out though that since I answered the phone first I actually knew before Shannon did!

Anyway, I wish Kelly and Lionel lots of love and happiness as they continue on their adventure.

Well I finally got around to taking some pictures of the new digs while Jarret was over visiting tonight. Hopefully you can get a sense of what the place looks like from these pictures. Also, for added excitment be sure to play "find the penguin" while looking at the pictures.

Well January is well on its way to being over and what a month it has been so far. Since coming back from New Jersey Shannon and I have been constantly on the go with work, recreational activities (ie. skiing) and most importantly, moving.

Our move on January 15 was fairly successful but VERY cold. The movers did not show up since they had the day wrong but they sorted it out and arrived three hours later. While this setback put us back a few hours we were just happy to get the move over with. We spent the night before painting the kitchen and family room so while a little tired had enough energy to get through another long day.

Anyway a little over a week has gone by since the move and our house is slowly beginning to look like a home. Room by room we are getting our belongings unpacked but I predict it will be at least another week before we are completely done unpacking.

I promise pictures of the new place are on their way but for the time being please have a look at the latest album on the birthday
