New family pictures

Each year on New Year’s Eve my Grandparents would have a party to celebrate the New Year and my Grandma’s birthday. We would all get together at my grandparents house and eat food and have fun. Here are a couple of pictures that were taken.

The picture below is of almost all my cousins and cousin-in-laws. We were missing 6 kids I think.

The holiday’s at Grandma’s are always full of adventure and excitment. My grandparents have 5 daughters, 22 grandkids, and 18 great-grandkids. Grandma’s house is quite small and so we are VERY crowded when we get together, but we always have so much fun!

Basketball starts soon

Basketball starts the week of February 2 for my youngest son and I think it starts the middle of February for my oldest. I can not wait. We purchased scrapbook stuff for basketball so we can put that together for our youngest. I made one for our oldest and gave it to him for Christmas. He just loved it. We bought a better camera right before Christmas so I can’t wait to use it.

Looking forward to watching my boy’s play basketball this year. It will be our youngest sons last year with the Boy’s and Girl’s Club. Next year he will be in 5th grade and will play for the school. I’m not sure what he will do with soccer since they don’t offer that in the school district. I guess we’ll see what happens. LOL

Wow, what a day

We woke up at 6:30 am this morning to our 12 year old crying. He heard something downstairs and came to see what it was. He didn’t turn the light on above the stairs and fell down them. His wrist was swollen and looked like it was starting to bruise. We took him to Urgent Care as soon as they opened and they said he sprained it. Thank goodness for that. We were really worried that he broke it.

He starts basketball in 4 weeks and this would have prevented him from playing or at least starting the season. Wouldn’t have been good, that’s for sure. He loves to play basketball and this would have devastated him.

So praise God he only sprained his wrist and has a brace for two weeks. :)

Look at what I got for Christmas!

My hubby bought me a ring for Christmas. He said the ring we bought 16 years ago was to small and was never good enough for me. He told me that it never really was what he wanted, but it was all we could afford at the time. Now 16 years later he gives me the one below.


Isn’t it just beautiful? I cried and cried when he gave it to me. :)

Wow, it’s been a month!

December was busy with business and the holidays. January is turning out to be busy as well. When you are a business owner that is what you want more than anything. Busy is how you reach your goals and dreams as well.

I’m looking forward to the New Year and everything it has to offer. I am very excited about how 2009 is going so far and how it is shaping out to be.

Here’s to a wonderful 2009!
