First and Last of 2009


Instead of the usual looking back through the year, and trying to remember what all happened, I thought I would take you back to the beginning of 2009 and the end.

The first pictures of #1 and #2 of 2009.  They were both sooo excited!  These were actually taken January 1, 2009.


The last day of 2009.  #1 still won’t part with Ariel.  She is convinced she is a princess and princesses only wear dresses and tights.  Yikes!  And, #2 is a drool monster.  With one of the best smiles ever!

Of course, I took absolutely no pictures today.  There is still time left.  Guess I must run upstairs and get pictures of the girls sleeping.

May 2010 be a blessing to you and your families.

PS.  My sister is giving away an awesome wine bottle light decoration.  Check it out.
