2 days left of 2008

30 Dec

2008 is almost over. and honestly, i am so ready & excited for a new year. a fresh start. a new beginning. 2008 had many ups & downs for us. it has been an interesting & challenging year. we are at a transitional phase in our life right now and i feel as though 2009 has great things in store for our family! we have officially closed down our shop here in quitman & are in the process of moving out of the building by tomorrow…busy week! ryan & my dad are doing most of the work, as usual, because i’m at home with 2 babies. can’t say i mind that one bit! 🙂 we also have a contract on our house. we had it on the market for less than a week and it sold…the week of christmas no less. pretty crazy! its supposed to close at the end of january. so we continue our job hunt and pray that God opens a door….and opens it very soon! we will start packing up our house gradually (seems like we just moved in…oh wait, we did just move in!)…and where we will land next, only God knows. ryan & i remain optimistic and are very thankful for all the blessings in our lives, including our beautiful children. we know things are going to work out and are excited to see what happens next. thank you for all of your prayers & words of encouragement during this crazy time. we have decided to make these last two days of 2008 GREAT…i challenge you to do the same!

i had the privilege of babysitting one of my best friend’s baby this weekend….little ellison. my friend rachel & i were pregnant at the same time…we seriously found out w/in days of each other that we were expecting. kamryn was born first and then ellison was born nine days later. so, rach came to town for a funeral, and i watched her baby girl for her. addi & kamryn loved having her here & i enjoyed cuddling with her! funny thing is that kam is just a few days older, but look at the difference in their size! kamryn is huge compared to her and this pic cracks me up…kam is all smiley as she is smooshing sweet tiny little ellie ru.

steak fries

28 Dec

i tried this new recipe tonight for fries to go along side the steaks ryan grilled (new york strips were 1/2 off at the store yesterday!)….it was SO good. addison LOVED these! its definitely a healthier version of regular french fries & quite tasty.

Merry Christmas!
