Happy New Year's Eve From Us to You!

This is as exciting as it gets for us tonight. We are in our den, with our gas logs on. The wind is COLD and blowing HARD....and yeh, we know other people are dressing up and going out. But we like it right here. We are warm, happy and in our sweats. Are you people out partying REALLY having a good time?? Happy 2009!
(Oh and yeh, that's a sippy cup in his lap. Yes. It. Is,)

Christmas in a Small Town

I still don't think of myself as a *small town* girl..though I've lived here for most of my adult life. I was raised near the *Queen City* and still love the atmosphere of a large city. But small town it was to raise our children, and we're still here! It WAS a great place to raise children. Everyone knows everyone and there is often a sense of *family*. Some small towns lose their desire to be a better place. They often lack in funds to keep their town alive and updated. Not so with this small town. The Arts Council is very alive and very active. (As I type, we are planning a Children's Museum for 2009). There are many beautiful buildings and many have been restored to show their original beginnings. Maybe I'll show those in the future. But, for today, I wanted to focus on the *windows* of a small town. The downtown businesses all decorate their windows...much like the Queen City did back in the 60's. The pictures I took don't do them justice, as they are lit at night and are so pretty!

Thankful For All These Things....And More!
Baby girl, E.C.

Big Kids!
My Parents....Don't they look great?!
Precious Nieces!
I am truly blessed! I could post picture after picture of my blessings. Often times I ask myself, "Why was I chosen to be so blessed?" I am so thankful to the ONE whose grace allows me the blessing of love and family. Thank you Lord for choosing to bless me.
