Happy New Year!

I know it's a few days late but I still want to wish each of you a Happy New Year!

We had a wond
erful Christmas. Remember this picture I shared with you?

Here's what it was.....

...A Willow Tree Angel of Light. Kelsey said when she saw the star on it she knew she had to get it for us. Good job, Kelsey! And thank you, again. That was so sweet of you.

Jimmy and I got all of the Christmas decorations taken down and put away last Saturday. We usually go shopping for wrapping paper, Christmas cards, Christmas plates and napkins for the family get-togethers, and stuff like that. But we decided to wait and go on Monday. I was really surprised by how much stuff Target had left. Then Katie and I went to Walmart and they had even more than Target did. Anyway, now our house is back to normal. And it's nice to relax and not worry about all the stresses that Christmas brings.

We start school back tomorrow. Yuck! I have really enjoyed the last two weeks off but it just went by too quickly. I have a few school goals for the new year. One of them is to help Kelsey more with her school work. I have kinda left her to do alot of it on her own and I'm not happy about that. She is in 11th grade and it makes me sad to know she only has one more year. She has grown up way too fast :>(

I think that's all I have for now.
