Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Well I will admit time for blogging has gotten away from me over the last month. It has been very busy for me as I'm sure it has been for you as well. I hope to pick it back up after the beginning of the year though.

This is just a quick post to say I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Our family had a great day together...and we got a few good pictures too...





We will be getting together again for new years and before that even...my birthday! Another year has flown right by. Quite a life changing year for me I would say in many ways-lots of ups and downs. But I have learned a lot from it and I think I can say I am better for it. I'm looking forward to the new year and it will be interesting to see what God has in store.



On another note, I have several friends expecting babies within the next month (some even days). I can't wait to meet the new additions to their families. (One of them even writes about his journey to fatherhood on his blog www.fathertrek.com - he is a very funny guy so if you need a laugh you should check it out). I am excited for them all to begin their new life with their newest family members.

When Riata was born April 23, 2010 it changed all our lives. She was sitting next to me yesterday holding my finger. I looked down at her little hand wrapped around my finger and it reminded me of the even tiny-er hand that held my finger the day she was born - she is growing up so fast!



I wasn't sure I would ever be an aunt and now in a short span I have 4 small nieces and nephews that are a regular part of our lives. Raising kids is a lot of hard work - even for the Aunt sometimes but I'm glad I've been a part of their lives this year.


So I hope you all had a great Christmas and that you will be able to spend some more time with family and friends bringing in the new year.


The End(ha)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year With Love,
Sarah
