Happy New Year

Sorry it's been so long since our last update. Things have been pretty crazy around here...with the Holidays and things being so different...I'm sure everyone understands.

We had a wonderful Holiday season, considering all that was going on...Abbie enjoyed everything. It was so great watching her face and listening to her sweet questions about EVERYTHING! Of course, Santa came on Christmas Eve and brought her some gifts...On Christmas morning when we woke up, the thing that she was most interested in was to look to see if Santa enjoyed his cookies that we had made him the day before. He, of course at EVERYTHING and drank all the milk...which Abbie thought was wonderful. She especially loved the crumbs that Santa left on the plate. It was so funny to watch!

We had a great Christmas break. TL was off with us the first week...which was great. We got to spend lots of time as a family and he was able to help me with the last minute Christmas shopping, etc. He had to go back to work the Monday after Christmas-but that gave Abbie and me some Mommy/Daughter time. We have played lots of games, watched lots of movies, read a TON of books, and made some arts and crafts. I have to admit, as much fun as it's been...I will be happy to ship her off to Ms. Quandra tomorrow morning! Mommy is TIRED!!!

I head back to work tomorrow w/ kids. Abbie and I "worked" the teacher work day on Friday...I'm sure everyone can imagine exactly HOW much work we got done!! I managed to get the fridge plugged back in, and that's about it!

It's crazy to think that now we are in the new year and all the possibilities that may bring! This time next year-who knows where we will be. I pray that 2009 is a year that brings health and happiness to us and everyone we love and care about!

This is going to be short-I have lasagna in the oven for dinner and soup in the crock pot for tomorrow. I'm trying my best to be more organized...and prepare meals a day or two in advance...Catch me in a few weeks to see how it's going!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Holiday season and that you are ready for the new year!

Check back soon-I'm going to try to update once a week in '09. (We'll see how that goes as well...LOL!!)

Love to you all-Leigh, Terry, and Abbie
