Happy 2009!!!!

We started the year a lo grande! Jeff's brother throws this magnificent party every New Year's Eve, and this year's was the best ever. He cooked all Italian food, which was amazing. Who would have thought Mac and Cheese could be so sublime? 
The kids played with their cousins, and Jeff and I talked in a corner of the noisy family room. 
I can't believe it's 2009. I remember thinking about the year 2000, that I would be 22, and that seemed so old to me!!!!! Now, 9 years later, 31 seems young enough, I feel the same as always after all! I have four children. Back on that night 9 years ago, Jeff and I had been married only a year--my children were a dream to me still. 
I hope all of you family and friends had a wonderful New Year day, and that this 2009 may bring much love and peace to your lives.


  1. It sounds like a wonderful time! Happy new year to you!

  2. Glad you had a great New Year's Eve. It's interesting, I wonder if at some point our spirits stop aging (still learning however) and our bodies just keep going. I hope that makes sense :-)
