Happy New Year!

As Isabelle & I were driving in the car yesterday she said to me “Momma, remember last year when I asked you when you were going to have a baby in your belly, and then you did”? This question got me thinking and I said to Belle; “it’s hard to believe that one year ago Mommy & Daddy weren’t even thinking about having another baby. And now, 12 months later, Mommy’s already been pregnant, had your baby sister and we’re now a family of four”. It just goes to show how much can change in 12 short months, and this is why I try to appreciate every day (though some days are easier to appreciate than others 😉

So last night, as we sat down to dinner (Belle, Joel & I in our chairs at the diningroom table and Genevieve in her bouncy seat) I started a new family tradition. Every year during New Years Eve dinner, let’s say what our favorite things about the past year have been… Mine were, the birth of Genevieve, going to Denver in June, going to Las Vegas in February for my first WPPI convention with the girls & making our house a home. Isabelle’s were, starting Kindergarten, going to Denver and playing with Hailey and Trevor, playdates with Eva and all of her friends, her baby sister, and turning six. Joel on the other hand didn’t have a “list” but simply said, my favorite things about 2009 are that our family is healthy and happy & that we still have jobs and a roof over our heads. Well said honey!!

My goal was to have my new blog & up and running ON January 1st, but as you can see that didn’t happen. I’m hoping to start working on it again this week and have it done soon. Better late than never I suppose. I will also be making an announcement regarding Valentine’s portrait sessions in the next week so be sure to check back often, or subscribe to the blog if you haven’t already!

And because I can’t have a blog post without any photos, I’ll leave you with a picture of my favorite thing of 2009! Happy New Year everyone, may 2010 bring you peace, joy, heath, love and happiness!!!!!!
