December 2010
1. On May 14, 2010, the space shuttle Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center for the last time. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful take-off. Here are some pictures from our backyard.
2. It's hard to recall the 2009 holidays now, but thought it would be a good reminder to show The Stewart's Christmas Card from that year! It was the 11th installment of an annual tradition, and be on the lookout for the 12th in 2010!

3. Sharon is still baking here and there – whenever the kids give her a moment to do it! Here are some pictures of three of her latest efforts: a birthday car cake, soccer cookies, and an anniversary cake.

1. If you remember our last Christmas card you'll recall that, "Santa's now on the hook for a swing-n-slide." Well, Santa finally came through around the July 4th holiday. The kids love it, even in the Florida heat!
2. These weren't Cameron's first park rides ever, but they were definitely the fastest rides he's ever been on. He did get a little scared on each: Epcot's Test Track and Sea World's Shamu Express.

3. Sharon's Bakery Box is still alive and kicking. Here Sharon baked a special cake for a friend's daughter's sweet sixteen party. Sharon took lots of pictures of her masterpiece!

1. The 2008 holidays – so distant now! – brought a new version of The Stewart's Christmas Card! It was the 10th installment of an annual tradition which gets harder and harder to create each year!

2. Samantha's first Christmas, and Cameron's third birthday! December is always going to be a busy month for us. Samantha was quite peaceful with Santa, but Cameron would not sit on Santa's lap – that's why he's out in front!

1. In case you don't know by now, yes, we're expanding the family with another little Stewart!   Sharon is in her 18th week of the pregnancy, and this time around things are very different than when she carried Cameron.   That's not a bad thing, it's just different!   The due date for this baby is August 8th – which is pretty cool if it holds true because then the date of birth would be 08-08-08!   And we just found out the sex of the baby...IT'S A GIRL!   Here are the sonogram pictures:

2. We recently took Cameron to meet some of his favorite television friends.   Where else?   Walt Disney World!   He drove in a race car, and met Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Darby – he wasn't too shy with them but he was a little star struck!   He definitely had a great time!

1. In April, Charlie had the honor of visiting the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.   It was a very solemn and emotional site, despite that its historic significance took place over 60 years ago.   The memorial is the only place where the American flag flies 24-hours a day, every day of the year.

2. Our softball team finally won the big one!   Our team, named and sponsored by Gator's Dockside, beat a previously undefeated team twice to win the Spring '07 league championship.   After over a decade of trying, it was way long overdue!
