Remembering the old.....ringing in the new

Here's to all your happiest memories from 2009 and making new ones in 2010. I hope to be back more often in 2010 to share our happy days and blessings. The boys are ringing in the new year in The Big Easy and I have a quiet date with G. We will make resolutions and goals and reflect and all that sappy stuff at a fine dining restaurant. The boys will be happy to probably be eating ice cream for supper and staying up until midnight. I am thankful for grandparents.

Wherever you are--snuggled in, out on the town, or far from home---peace!!!

OMG He's 9!!

Well 9 years ago our lives changed.....A LOT. Brock has become a namesake, a lover of babies, a talk-a-holic, a math whiz, an athlete, a challenge, but most of all.....a gift......that keeps on giving. Happy Birthday Brock!

We had a great Fall day in the sun. The weather was breezy and crisp but the boys had a ball at the BMX park---riding, jumping, popping wheelies. Mac said it was the BEST BROCK BIRTHDAY ever!!

Enjoy the pix!

i can't remember.... it fashion follows decor or decor follows fashion? Hard for me to remember b/c the top I was wearing was from our anniversary and the picture is from the set of Mad Men (which takes place in the 1960's) Notice the chairs. My top ---5 years (at least) old and chairs in Mad Men 50 years old. Hmmmmmm.........

Happy Happy!!

We've been through the 7 year itch twice---14 years---whewwwww.......Happy Anniversary to my best friend. (girlfriends---don't be p.o.'ed) Some years have been itchier than others but I love you all the way to the moon as I do our two offspring. Life is good. God is great. Here's to 14 more......

School Daze

Some might say how sad to see summer go. We did, but quickly my boys seemed to develop instant "crushes" on their Pre-1st and 3rd Grade teachers. It's going to be a good year. I'm proud of them. Another year of new beginnings for Mom, Dad, Brock and Mac. Yes, every 1st day of school and Christmas Eve I shed tears.....

mainly because I have to get up a little extra early to prepare Happy 1st Day of School Breakfasts.

Meet the teachers.

Summer Lovin'

Summer lovin' had us a blast--
Summer lovin' happened so fast.
Me, the Mom, crazy was me--
Met some boys--cute as could be.
Summer days driftin' away to oh, oh, the summer nights....

Tell me more, tell me more.....
The Thrasher Summer. It was magical. It went too fast. We were surrounded by dear friends and family. We were spoiled. I could go on about beach breezes, glassy lakes, rolling meadows and pastures, crickets chirping.....God is good.
