Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas this year. Are ya'll looking forward to the new year?
Does anyone else feel as if 2009 just sped by? It's been a whirlwind of a year for me. I think this past year has been a year of busy-ness. Don't get me wrong! It's been a fabulously good year! And the new year is looking to be a great year too! But when I think back on the past year it's been one thing after another and I begin to feel so wonderfully blessed and happily exhausted. ;-)
This week we'll be having a New Years Eve get together with a few of our friends. It's not a great party or anything like that. Just a group of our friends getting together here, playing games, eating food and helping us to stay awake! We've had a few gatherings in this new house and it's been wonderful! To have friends and family to share with is such a blessing!
2009 has been a year filled with new things,
new people and new life! So here is a photo of a new life in our family. Baby Parsons (no news yet as to what the sex is) Our son and his wife are expecting their first child! Yup, we are going to be grandparents! Yay! Fav-daughter-in-law is due in August of 2010! They are so excited. Our first born is very happy and is hopeful that he'll be back from Afghanistan before the baby is born.
I've already begun looking for baby patterns to crochet and knit. I'm so excited I'm even considering giving sewing another chance! ;-)
And then there is the new soon to be addition to our family in the way of an engagement! Baby girl finally decided that there is indeed a good man to be had. We've gotten to know him and have decided that once again, Baby Girl has exhibited good judgment and sense in accepting this young mans proposal. And of course, we believe him to be exceptionally intelligent since he had the sense to realize how lucky he was that our baby girl loved him so. We are very happy to have him become a part of our family! They look great together and together they are great! ;-)
The best thing about being a parent is when you get to see your kids healthy and happy! And because they are... We are truly blessed.
And it's still snowing! It looks as if we'll get another inch or two of snow today. I'm going to go out there and do some shoveling.
To all of you who read my silly little posts... I thank you for being so understanding of my ramblings. I appreciate you taking the time to spend a little time with me. I hope you all have a wonderful ending of 2009 and look forward to more of what life will bring you in 2010,
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that your day was as wonderful as ours!
This morning we woke up to snow, snow and more snow. As a matter of fact it is still snowing. I believe we have gotten about 8 inches of snow and we are supposed to get another 6 by tomorrow!
In the photo is my husband shoveling our sidewalk and steps. He used the snow blower for our neighbors drive, walkway and our sidewalk and our friends sidewalk as well. But this bit you see him shoveling is the spot by the street that has 4 steps leading down to the drive area, so, no snow blower for those!
This is him close up. Can you see his ice-crusted eye lashes and mustasch? (Hmmm, not sure I spelt that word right.) oh well.
Today we begin our annual puzzle. Every year we start a puzzle on Christmas day and the rule is that it has to be completed by New Years Day!
So off I go to begin this stressful yet enjoyable project. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas day!
