New Years

Ethan and Angie playing at my parent's house during our annual party!

New Years at Grandma and Papa's. Cam with Gia his favorite cousin!
Every January I start to get excited to start another year. A new beginning, a chance to clean out the old. A new start and when needed a goodbye to anything tough from the year before. That also means cleaning out the house. A process I quite enjoy. Well, that's been kind of hard with so many helping hands. I guess it will be a prolonged process!

This January I decided to take sometime to count my blessings instead. What a good year we've had. Though 2010 was an economically challenging year for all of us. We've been blessed with a home and food. We've been blessed with health and happiness. We have been blessed with good family and friends. As a mom I feel especially blessed. I look at my kids and am amazed with each of them. Ethan has grown into such a nice kid. I'm so impressed with what Kindergarten has done for him. He is so kind and sweet and I'm so proud of him. Cam has learned to wait his turn and share. He is so loving towards his sister. Jack is talking up a storm and really doesn't need speech anymore. He has come so far he is such a gift to us all. Not to mention we added Reagan to our crazy bunch. Through a tough pregnancy and a scary beginning she has done just great. We are so blessed and I can only hope next year blesses our family too. I will remember 2010 in fondness and look forward to all 2011 brings.
