Our Year in Review

As 2009 comes to an end I thought I would take a look back at some of our highlights from the past 12 months. It snowed twice.

We made slime and soup.

Abby learned to swing all by herself, swim, whistle and chew gum without swallowing it.

We had visits from all our extended family. Enjoyed spending time with them so much.

I read some really good books. Click here to see a couple.

We had the best time touring a working cow farm while on vacation in Canada.

I went back to work part time after being home for 5 years.

Adam and Grandpa Warren built a great new deck on the back of our house.

Abby played the role of Mary in the school nativity play.

It really has been a great year. I have so much to be thankful for. Hope you have a wonderful New Year.

Weird Santa

Abby: That Santa was kinda weird.
Me: Well I think that was one of the guys that helps Santa. You know the real Santa is so busy this time of year.
Abby: Oh no, I forgot to ask him to make me be able to fly.
Me: oh well, maybe next year.

Wrapped and Ready

I pulled the holiday books out last week and wrapped them all in news print. I thought I would throw some number recognition in this year and numbered them from 1 to 24. The plan is to let Abby pick one each night after dinner for us to read. For a peek at some of our favorite books from last year - click here. What are your favorite holiday reads?
