Happy New Year!

I finally got my camera back! These are the pictures of Cade opening his Scorpian. I wish we had video of it but I will always remember it! He also got a BB gun. We live back in the woods so he shouldnt be able to hurt anything. Andy gave him a little safety talk and he has been hunting before. I told him that if he shoots an animal he will have to eat it so I think my squirrels are safe right now!
We have had a really nice holiday! I loved having the kids home! Last night, we all 5 went to the movies and out to eat. We dont do this much because we dont like the same movies, its SO expensive and our teenage boy doesnt like to be seen with us. We went to see Avatar. Have you seen it? We all loved it! It was 3d which I could have lived without but we thought it was worth it! After the movies we went out to eat and then came home and crashed around the tv! I have been going through my fabrics for baby quilt stuff. A lady at church (i know her but we arent really friends) has a daughter who is having a baby. Kelsey and I got an invitation to the shower and wondered why since we don't really know the daughter. Well, at church, the lady keeps asking about my "blankets" so I can only guess that she wants a quilt. I give quilts at most baby showers. Kelsey said that I should not make one, she said I should not even go but I don't think it is that big a deal. I will just take it as a compliment!
Andy is at the Fire Dept. New Years Eve. It will just be me and the kids. We are going to make homemade pizza and a Hersheys Chocolate Cake! I will be surprised if I make it until 12! I have also been writing down some goals for the New Year. My thoughts are still kind of jumbled with how to balance and what to balance. I hope writing it all down will help!
Happy New Year to everyone! Thank you for reading! I can't wait to see all the wonderful things that happen to us all in 2010! Be safe!

Good Morning Libby,

That first picture is priceless and so sweet. He never believed he was going to get it and did.

I have heard Avatar is great but a 3 hour 3D movie is a little much. I don't know if I will see it or not. My hubby can't go to 3D movies because they make him sick so it would have to be with someone else. Did Cade go and was it appropriate for his age? I'm thinking Lexi might like it.

Sounds like a big compliment that they would want a baby quilt so badly. I know they are beautiful and it will be a wonderful keepsake for the new baby.

I am so glad we met through blogging and I look forward to blogging with you in 2010. Happy New Year!!♥

Cade looks so sweet opening his gifts! I bet he was so suprised to get the Scorpian!
I think it is wonderful of you to make a quilt for the girl's baby. A simple 9 patch or fence rail is always nice and easy, but looks sweet for a baby.
Good luck on your goals. I am detailing some of mine today....maybe.....I have been quilting on the pink and brown and really don't want to stop.
Happy New Year!!! <3

Happy New Year!! That's very cool that Cade was so excited about the Scorpian! I took a little nap when I got home from work, so I will be good to go until midnight! lol
