wow, the time has by flown once again! we did have a white christmas this year, how fun was that! my sister called from alaska christmas morning and at that moment it started snowing, huge fluffy flakes, it was beautiful.
we celebrated baby owens first christmas on christmas eve, he opened his gifts with gusto, and gave me a wonderful smile when he saw the sock monkey.
i will be finishing his christmas sock today so they can pack it away for next year.
tonight will find us ringing in the new year with the traditional banging of pots and pans. tomorrow, will see us taking down the tree, actually, hopefully, i will be left alone, to store away all the decorations and cart the tree outside. it is another tradition for the girls and steve to head to grandma roses for the new year, and leave the cleaning to me, it is so much easier! although, if jess would like to stay and help, that would be a good thing! then when every thing is done and a fire is burning, they arrive back to a clean, seemingly huge, slightly hollow sounding, home, as if the cleaning fairies came and swept everything away! lol.
i am anxious to start creating again, it seems like forever! jess does have her birthday coming on friday, so not to much creating will actually be going on until the weekend , i'm sure. but when it does start, watch out! here comes the LoVe holiday! wooohoooo! i am hoping that the paper companies have come up with some winners! we'll see.
thank you everyone for all of your support, it has been a great year!! -rebecca
