Hello 2009... Goodbye 2008! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a wonderful Christmas.... no one was sick... kids were good... all went well. Luckily, Matthew got over his ear infection and pink eye just in the nick of time for all our Christmas festivities. You can see how much fun they had with all their cousins pictured. BUT... there is always a but... now both kids are sick and running fevers. Paige and Matthew both came down with a cold late Sunday. Took them to the doctor yesterday and Paige now has an ear infection too. We are keeping a VERY close watch on Paige to make sure her asthma does not interfere. SOOO... I decided to make a list of Hello's and Goodbye's to help ring in the new year...
Hello... healthy kids
Goodbye... sick kids
Hello... sending actual cards out for all occasions (more personal)
Goodbye... electronic cards
Hello... to eating healthier
Goodbye... junk food (except for Chocolate and Dr. Peppers... they are another food group all to their own)
Hello... handmade goodies (BTW... Christmas was fun making stuff for most everyone)
Goodbye... storebought stuff
Hello... okay I could probably go on forever thinking up of stuff to say hello to and Goodbye to, but I will spare you the long post.
Hello... to another great year
Goodbye... to a great year
My dad told me this once and I have always lived by it and thought I would share with you all...
It is not "How is life treating you?".... It is "How are you treating Life?"
Life is what you make of it. How will you treat your life this year?
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Make the best of it!
