Saying goodbye to 2008

These are just a few tidbits from our holiday season. It all seems to get better and better as my children continue to grow older. Christmas morning was amazing. The kiddos loved their gifts. The black and white photo of my boy gripping his new matchbox cars is how it still is today. Oh, and I am sure Jesus loved His reindeer birthday cupcakes. My daughter now asks daily if Jesus is going to bring Christmas back another day. As for me, I sure do hope so.

I am all about family traditions, this New Year's was no exception. We all got dressed up, ate tostadas and rice krispy treats, danced away, and concluded the night with a party with good friends. Of course we were home by nine and the kiddos went promptly to bed. As for hubby and I, we actually made it till midnight and not a minute more. Oh, and yes, that is my little Ellie breaking out her model face.

Last but not least, I would like you to say hello to my stocking stuffers. Hubby really nailed it and got me exactly what I wanted. I did not even have to ask. I would wear them daily if that was practical.

I hope all you lovelies had a wonderful holiday season and I can not wait to see what lies ahead, but for now I just want to dwell in all the blessing that have come my way. Thank you all for being part of my blessings.
