Out with the old...

and in with the new.

2009 has arrived!

You know, there's just so much that I could say about reminiscing 2008 because there were so many great things that happened. Best of all, our family was spared tragedy, death and unemployment. When my children read about the year 2008, like 20 years from now, I hope they get the whole sense of how fortunate our family has been. Yes we have been blessed!

Since I mainly like to write about fun, happy kid-related stuff here, (oh yeah, and I always seem to get a little long winded and sometimes off track) I'm just going to write about how we welcomed our new year and wish every one of you and your family a fantastic and blessed 2009, spared from tragedy, death and unemployment. Cheers!

On New Year's Eve, we stayed overnight at our friends' house and had an absolutely wonderful, fun filled evening together. Another couple of our friends and their 2 kids were visiting from North Carolina and staying over also. Our party consisted of 6 long time friends and 6 well-behaved children. Making our evening even better was that Lincoln, who is sometimes a problem sleeper away from home, fell asleep with ease and Elaina asked to go to bed around 9:30. Are you kidding me? Wahoo! This mommy and daddy had the night OFF!! I didn't even drag my camera out of my bag but once! My kids had the night off too!

I can't imagine a better way to spend the last evening of 2008 than sharing it with friends, food, drinks and sleeping children!
