Good Morning Everyone; and Alooooha!

Asher is soaking up the Aloha Spirit. These are some pictures Carter emailed me of him at Sunset Beach. She said he's got a real feel for the place. Tonight they are going to Rosie's Cantina in Halawiea. (sp) Yummm.... fried ice cream. You know you want some. I'm going over there in two days. I might have to take asher around like the dwight bobble head to visit all of the places that hold a memory for me. I will take requests. If there is a spot you want to see Asher, I'll try to make it happen. I really want to take him into the Caf for breakfast (you can't go wrong with all you can eat Captain crunch) Then to the Seasider for Chili and Rice. If he's lucky he might get to sit on the curb at Chevron with a Dr. Pepper. Why do all of my memories involve food? Any requests, just leave them in the comments or email me at

Gpa's Spoil the Boy

With Grandma and Grandpa Ellingson here for the last week, Asher has received round the clock attention and now he demands it even when they are gone. He took a special liking to Grandpa and appreciated Grandma always being ready with the bottle and blended peas. They were life savers for us as Carter was in the Bay area visiting Tarah's twin arrivals. Good Luck Evans. Now that Asher has been more spoiled than ever, we're not taking the foot off the pedal. The Smith Side of Gradparentdom arrive today and whoosh him away to Hawaii in about two days. I get to stay home with the dogs for the first four days, then will catch up with them at Turtle Bay.

The Snowman Cometh

As pertaining to the Christmas cards, Asher was not Photoshoped in. Sandy and Carter actually had quite the photo shoot with him and he now uses the outfit as a conversation starter. He can't stay in it too long as Buckley thinks he's a stuffed animal and tries to drag him around by the hat.

Asher and the Fishies

Asher had a day at the Long Beach Aquarium sans dad. As you can see he enjoyed is time and really felt at one with the fish. At the petting tank you can see a sting ray took special liking to him and he would have no objections in going back. He doesn't usually wear his shirt so open at the top, two buttons down is a bit risque', but since he was trollin' with a couple cougars today, I guess he felt pretty confident.

Asher's Stand-in Parent

When Carter wants to do something cute, like go to the aquarium; and I want to do something fun, like watch the Steelers/Patriots game; there is only one solution: JAIME.

Jaime is a rental parent, anytime you need a live body stand-in, you call JAIME; but do it a couple of weeks in advance as her appointment book fills up quickly. I'd like to thanks JAIME for standing in for me at the aquarium today as it looked like Asher had a great time. Now if I could only impress upon you to go with Carter to get and decorate our tree, that would be great.
