It is almost 2009!

Wow, this year has gone by pretty fast. Summer didn't seem long enough. Before I knew it Thanksgiving was here and now Christmas just got over. Three more days and it will be 2009. I am looking forward to the new year. We made it through Christmas without charging anything so no new bills. Yeah! Also, the baby will be born in April. I can't wait to meet her. I am still getting used the idea of another girl. Right now Saira brought all of her stuffed animals to the living room to 'have' a wedding with them. Oh boy.

Christmas was nice again this year. It was laid back and everybody woke up on their own for the most part. Although, I think Saira woke a couple of the boys up because she couldn't wait. She woke up at five and I made her get in bed with me because there was no way I was getting up that early. Next year I think I will let her stay up late for 2 or 3 nights prior to Christmas so that she can sleep in on Christmas Day. ;o)

The weather has been bizarre. We got 4 feet of snow over about a week and a half. Then the day after Christmas it was about 25 degrees. The day after that it got up to 60 degrees! All of the snow left, our basement got wet. Now it is just cold out, but no snow or rain. Yeah.

Saira played piano at church on Christmas Eve. Alec was a wise man in the program. It was nice.
Yeah! it worked. I loaded the video of Saira playing. It is dark but you can still hear her play.

This Wednesday will be about 14 weeks before the baby will be here. So, I am trying to make sure that I have everything ready. I have been trying to make plans in my head for the hospital and everything else. Well, thank you all for being in my life. I hold each and every one of you dear to my heart. God Bless.
