HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Welcome 2010!! I welcome this new year and new decade with open arms! I hope each of you has a prosperous and wonderful year!!
We survived Christmas in our household...actually it was a wonderful, Blessed Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve together....the 4 of us until almost 9pm, then the 5 of us (oldest visited and then came home to spend the rest of the evening with us). We played board games......we talked, listened to Christmas music, etc...it was great. Christmas morning I was up EARLY!! I always wake up early, but this year I was up at 4:30 am!! Yes, that's right....4:30!! I got the veggies ready, made muffins, coffee, etc....and finally our youngest woke up at 7.......we opened presents, relaxed for a while and then had our family dinner.
My DH's sister and her family went away for Christmas this year...they rented a gorgeous cottage right on the water in a neighbouring province. They had a fantastic time. Their two kids are 21 and 24, both were home for the Holidays and went with their parents....they had a Charlie Brown Christmas tree with all homemade decorations, played games, walked on the beach, etc...a truly wonderful family Holiday.
As most of you know, my family has struggled along with our oldest while she makes some changes in her life, some good, some not so good (to us anyway), but things that have to be her choices....I hope 2010 brings her peace and Happiness and wise choices. It's hard to watch your children grow up!
I will leave you with a few photos of the Holidays...




Take care everyone!!

Sounds like you had a great day. Yes, watching children grow up and make mistakes they'll have to live with is heart wrenching. I wish you peace, love and happiness in 2010.
