Happy New Year



Happy New Year!! i'm here, and finally posting. it's taken me a week to get back to normal, yet i still can't quite seem to get organized! It might be the fact that Jim has been home from work since Dec. 20th. It's been really nice, having an extra set of hands... but strange and definitely not the norm. everyday feels like the weekend. anyway, we had an amazing Christmas. Greyson didn't wake-up that morning until 8:30! it was so much fun watching him crawl up to his new rocking horse. He had a big time opening his gifts from Santa. he received lots of fun puzzles, blocks, books, trucks, and a few ornaments too. i *love* ornaments and try to add a few new ones each year (especially from Hallmark). Christmas day was a very relaxing day, we only left the house once to visit the Disney's. Jordyn and Greyson exchanged gifts, she gave him a super cool tractor and wagon with farm animals. his favorite part of the gift, are the light up head lights! The rest of our day was spent welcoming friends & family at home. Greyson's nana gave him a magically carousal. i will post a picture later. we love it mom! Jim's big gift to me was a sony handycam -awesome! but, my favorite gift from him was... my flute. i know, your thinking a flute. what? well -i told jim earlier this year that i had always wanted to play the flute, but choose the clairnet. back then, :) it was the less expensive instrument. fast forward to Christmas morning 2005... he gave me a flute. I've been so excited, i bought a beginners music book and have practiced almost everyday! so as we have entered into a new year, i just want to take a minute to wish everyone a joyful year. i'm so grateful to everyone that cheeks in here. i *love* hearing your comments and greetings. it's been quite a year for our family -full of firsts! we love to keep busy and being able to share our lives with all of you has been so much fun.

That's great that you're taking up the flute. I'd love to learn to play an instrument; I never have, but now I have no time!
Maybe when I retire . .
