Goodbye 2007

Well, it's been quite a year, hasn't it? It's hard to believe 2007 is almost over. We have no plans at all, even less than normal, for New Year's Eve because hubby is working a double shift that night. He will get home just before midnight though so that's not too bad.

I just wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

May all of your dreams come true in 2008!! I'm hoping some of mine do!!

Merry Christmas to everyone!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas this year. I hope everyone is warm and with family and/or loved ones.

Think of friends and they will be sharing the day with you.

Take a moment and think of loved ones who are not with you

Hold the joy of the season in your heart and it will stay with you all year around!

And I hope all of you have a wonderfully Merry Christmas. Y'all make my year much brighter!! Thank you for that!

Dallas Mavericks and .... is it really almost Christmas???

Go Mavs Go!! Had a great time last night at the Dallas Mavericks game. They won, of course and it was so cool to finally get to go see them. And of course, they won!!!

We had really awful seats though and were only 4 rows from the very top...not good. Luckily my camera has a decent zoom on it and I could get a few pretty good pics.

#41, Dirk Nowitzki, team captain and center, is my favorite player. #34, Devon Harris is my second favorite. And they both played a great game last night!!

Me and Austin...I really like this picture!

In other news, I can't believe it's only a few days until Christmas. I guess I'm just not excited about it this year because my mom and dad won't be here....just won't be the same. Oh well, I'll make the most of it.......I guess.

I hope everyone is healthy and has a wonderful Christmas!!!

Austin's Christmas play

Austin is the one behind the little boy with a hat and vest on. He has the plaid shirt on with short sleeves. You can't see him very well but he's still trying to sing along.
It was cute..........
Here is a picture of him first, so you can recognize him a bit better....

We had a fantastic time at the hockey game last night! I've never been so excited to see a hockey game before in my life. We were 10 rows away from the ice and I. was. in. heaven..... I don't know how I'm ever going to be able to go back to the nosebleed section!!

I was amazed by how many people did have Ottawa jerseys on, like I we made some noise!

And now...for some pictures.......

You can see how close I am ........and loving it!

I sat so close I could see their faces!!

My favorite captain, Daniel Alfredson....Alfie (on the right)

Assisstant Captain (on the left) Wade Redden

And the final score.............gotta love it!!!

It was a great game and I had a fantastic time!! I can't wait until Ottawa comes back again!!!

I'm so proud!!!!

Congratulations, Samantha! You’ve been admitted to SFA as of 12/04/07.

Caution: long post ahead

Geesh, I had no idea it had been this long since my last post.

I've put up my Christmas tree, had Thanksgiving dinner, crocheted a whole bunch....phew...ok, now for the updates........

Here is a picture of my boys putting the star on top of the Christmas tree. It was just too cute. One of those times when I took a mental picture as well as a digital one so it would stay in my mind forever!

The cat really liked the tree too.......too much......

I just had to take a picture of my turned out so good this year. And it was so yummy! And if you look closely at the other one you can see a happy face in the stuffing....Matt thought it would be funny......

Earlier this week we went to the high school for an 'Honor Role Banquet' that Samantha received a certificate at. I'm so proud of her.
The night went beautifully, including a speech made by the Superintendant that actually made me cry. It was about how we have to enjoy our children and even though some things they might ask us to do for them, like tie a shoe (or straighten hair as is my case with Sam) that we will miss it so much when it's gone and they're not at home with us anymore. I tell ya, it brings a tear to my eye right now. I'm going to be a basket case when she goes off to college next year!!

These are not great pics but..........

Let's mom had hip replacement surgery on Dec 4th and came through with flying colors. My dad has called me every day to let me know how she's doing (I don't think I've ever talked so much to my dad on the phone before!). Yesterday she even put all her weight on her leg when she was up walking and while her incision was sore, her hip was not. It has literally been at least 15 years since she's had no pain in her hip. Amazing. There'll be no stopping her now!!

One last note before I go.........GO SENS GO!! Tonight is the BIG hockey game! I finally get to go see my Ottawa Senators play!! Ironic that I had to move to Texas to see them huh? I'm so excited...we have a great seats....10 rows from the ice!!! Don't worry, I'm bringing my camera and I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!!!!
Have a good one ................
