Bye Bye 2009!!!

Well, its New Year's Eve and we are suppose to be spending it with Ryan's family but due to a massive Swine flu outbreak in the house on Monday...its just us! Its been a bummer ending to an awesome Christmas. This week has just crept by and it really has stunk that my entire family has gotten the flu. So, to make the best of our worst situation...its a movie and big ball dropping live from NYC! :)

So, wishing all my friends and family a wonderful, blessed, healthy New Year!

God Bless You!
Happy 2010

Its December!!!!!

One of the traditions I started with my girls a couple of years ago is the chocolate Advent calendars! They love it! :) Its a fun, easy, and cheap tradition that just brightens those angel faces. :) I think I like giving them just as much as they like receiving them.
So here are some photos of surprising the girls with their Advent calendars!
