I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. I know I did! I wanted to share some of it with you. Our tree was a little bare of ornaments this year because I worked all the way up to the day before Christmas eve and gave up on the excessive holiday decorating that I normally do. We liked it just as well with only a few ornaments. This year I added a new topper....the big peppermints and the candy sticks. I fell in love with them at Ben Franklin in Moberly when I went shopping with my mom and couldn't leave without them!


We started having our Christmas on the 23rd, because we have Christmas with my family on Christmas Eve and Mike's family on Christmas day. It gives us more time to spend with the kids and gives them a chance to play with their toys. It works out great now that they are older but I do miss the days of playing Santa and sleeping by the tree on Christmas eve.

Erica got a letter jacket this year, along with too many other things...she was very excited!





















When Adam figured out that he got a bow he couldn't hold back the excitement. It was so funny!






















One of the things that I was working on before Christmas was a cabinet for my uncle to give my aunt for Christmas. I was real pleased with the way it turned out and she loved it!


So now we move on to 2009 which will definitely be a challenging new adventure for us. Mike was laid off of his job after working there for 23 years on December 26th. I don't really know what the future holds for us but I do have faith that things are going to be ok.
I am already itching to pick up my paint brushes and I really need to start putting more things in my Prim Market booth this year so I am making that my resolution.....along with cleaning out all my closets and ridding our house of every thing we no longer use! I started today with my bathroom medicine cabinet and the storage cabinet and it did feel good!
I am wishing you all a wonderful 2009 !
