This sweet guy has been sick almost the entire month. And when he's not been sick, someone else was. I think I was only able to go to church once this month. Not fun.
I had two pictures published (!!!) in a calendar featuring Ames. I'm March and November 2010!
And I made my first Fancy Family Dinner. You can't see very well, but the potatoes are served in a gorgeous red sparkly pedestalled bowl and the ham and turkey was served on that black and white number you can just see the end of. Unfortunately, the picture of the complete table was blurry, so just imagine.
We also got pajamas on Christmas Eve (an old tradition) and drove around and looked at Christmas lights (a new tradition). Christmas morning came a little too early, but it was a good one. The boys have enjoyed their presents and Randal got me a tablet mouse - I've been coveting one for a few years. Actually, I was pretty impressed because he got it last month and was able to keep it a secret. I don't think he's ever been able to keep a present a secret for that long.
So December and 2009 are almost over. All that's left to do is get my house clean to usher in 2010. I'm hoping if I can get clean to ring in the New Year, it will be a good omen - or something.
