So Long, 2008!!

Well, it was a whirlwind of a year and I'm looking forward to see what 2009 has in store for me and my family!

My children all grew in height, weight and smarts . . . my hubby and I grew more in love than before (who could've thought that was possible? But it is! I'm so enamored with this man it's almost embarrassing!) . . . I grew my career that had been pretty stagnant for the last few years.

There's lots to work on in 2009 . . . between business goals, financial goals, health goals, spiritual goals, and family goals. We're all up to the challenge, however!

Tonight, we're having a Wii Tournament (woo hoo! Wii Bowling! Wii Olympics! Wii Baseball!) and enjoying a fabulous spread of snack-y foods. I don't know how long we'll stay up, but if we're all awake at midnight we'll toast in the new year. If not, we'll toast it in tomorrow!

Tomorrow, we'll eat a lovely dinner on the new Radko Christmas plates I scored on clearance at Target today, and the holiday linens I scored on clearance at Cost Plus World Market. We'll have ham, mashed potatoes and green beans with sundaes for dessert.

After dinner, we'll write down our goals and resolutions for 2009 and seal them up with the Christmas ornaments.

We often leave our tree up until the Epiphany, but I think this year we'll take it down tomorrow, as well as the outdoor lights. I feel a need to have a clear slate for 2009, and I'd like some help putting it all away.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve and I look forward to an exciting 2009!

  1. Happy New Year Melanie! I'm so glad it was a good one - you guys deserved it!

    We also are taking down our tree tomorrow - I usually leave it up till Epiphany too but I'm just sick of it already this year. LOL!

    I don't know if my emails are getting through to you, but I wanted to say THANK YOU for all the generous things you've sent us with the baby's birth and Christmas - it was so, SO sweet and thoughtful of you!

    Here's looking forward to a fantastic 2009 for both our families!
