Goodbye 2008... G'Day 2009

Christmas and New Years that was... 2008

I did a bit of an "I spy Tiny"...

Its been 2 of the busiest week's of my life!!! Full of fun, frivolity, food and family... with just a touch of sadness, as we said our final goodbye's to Grandma. December 2008, will certainly be a month that we will never forget!!!

A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to this wonderful lady, who is officially a Mama!!! PIPO we are absolutely thrilled for you. Your daughter is just perfect (almost as perfect as ours?!!!! :) Fingers crossed our intineraries overlap, we'll in GZ for 2 weeks?!!

Oh yeah, and after almost 3 months of no interest at all in our house sales... I now have 2 inspections in the next 2 days?!!! It doesn't rain unless it friggin pours!!!

I'm peaking with anticipation, as we enter into 2009. I said last year - "2008 will be great" and my slogan this year is

2009 will be deeeeevine!

Every time I see a picture of Tiny I can't help but get a HUGE smile. She is so adorable. I hope you don't mind, but I showed off her picture to all of my family on Christmas Eve, and ALL of my in-laws on Christmas day. I am so excited for you!!!

What fun pictures!!! It is so funny to see pool pictures on Christmas. Our temperature yesterday was only 12F when I woke up. I like your temp better!!!!

Happy 2009!!!!
