Updates

It's been a while since we updated this thing! Here we go...

1. Aaron and I are officially empty nesters. Jen and Buddy moved out on Monday. The last 4 or so months FLEW by! It worked out really well to have Jen stay with us while she finished school. Page now has free reign of the basement again and she has been looking for Buddy down there. Jen may be back up in Duluth depending upon her job search; we'll see what happens!

2. Amp 11 rulz. Aaron's band's show at Beaners last week was awesome! They did a GREAT job (I am slightly biased, I know, but I really would have no qualms with saying they stunk. Just ask Aaron). Amp 11 had by far the most groupies of the night. We'll keep you posted if they have any more shows - or if they sign a record deal. This picture is a little blurry, but the lighting was bad for photo ops at the concert. You get the general idea. (Thanks, Heather!!)3. Adoption...nothing new. We're still waiting. It looks like our wait for a referral may be longer than the 5-7 months we were "quoted" back in August. I'm checking with our contact person at CHSFS and we'll let you know. Just for reference, we will be waiting for 5 months on January 8th.

4. Zubaz. I read in the paper today that the guys who created zubaz are re-introducing them. You can only buy them at www.zubaz.com, which is an interesting website...it almost seems like a joke but I think they are serious. Check it out, it is weird.

That's all from the Northland.

Believe it or not...your dear old dad told someone recently that he heard about the resurgence of Zubaz! Thankfully, he never wore them, but I still think he is hip even if no one else does! Great update. Can't wait to hear amp11 sometime also!

I think that the zubaz thing is using the iron range cities as a trial. rumor has it that there is a strong link between meth-heads and Zubaz... just a theory on my part, and since the range has 95% of it's residents on meth...

I'm really hoping Dad breaks out the AUTHENTIC zubaz at Christmas! That might very well be the highlight this year!! We'll have to be sure to get some pics so Katie can share them...sort of a "Peterson Christmas Highlight Reel", with Dad in his Zubaz as the feature photo, of course! :) Love it.
