Daddy and Son Snow Fun!

Adam and Micah made a trip up to Hume to check out a tractor and had some fun in the snow. The first thing they did was ride Uncle Jay's big snowplow. Well I guess it's not really Jay's he just get to use it.

Then cousin Tanner joined them for some rides down the tube runs.

Micah wanted to walk up the hill on his own but it is really hard work for a little guy.

He also thought he was big enough to pull the tube everywhere but he needs to get a little stronger. So Adam had fun hauling Micah and the tube up the hill. Micah had a blast riding down!!! I was sad I couldn't join them but I had commitments in Fresno.

Goodbye 2009 Hello 2010

For New Year's day we went to the Hmong New Year's celebration at the Fresno Fairgrounds. I was able to get Jill to go again (3rd time?) and it was a first for Micah. I think that I am on 5 years in a row now. Micah loved all the booths, sounds and traditional clothes that many people were wearing. Last year I went by myself and spent time with my friend Ger and his family, at the end of the time there I saw a little shorts and shirt outfit and Ger ended up buying it for him. This year we got Micah the same type of outfit in a bigger size and also a matching hat to go with it. When it gets warm again Micah will be sure to wear his outfit to church and maybe some other places it Jill will allow it. Micah also enjoyed his first taste of Hmong sausage and bbq'd chicken along with a jello drink with a coconut milk flavor
Also this past week we said good bye to our Christmas tree for the year. I will miss seeing it lit up in the window as I would drive past each night coming home from work and looked forward to spending the evening with Jill and Micah.
I am sure that Jill will have more to add about the New Years too!
