Good morning friends......I sure have missed having coffee with you all. ;-)
Things have been pretty busy around here! If we were having coffee together today, I would have lots and lots to share with you. It has been a long time since we have visited, so we have some quick catching up to do.
I'd ask you about your holidays and tell you that ours were very nice and relaxing. Just us. No extended family. December came and went so fast, I was almost shocked when it was suddenly Christmas Eve and I was up in the middle of the night wrapping presents. We decided this year to buy small gifts for our kids. Nothing big. They already have all of those big gifts anyway and those big gifts really eat up our Christmas budget fast. So, we had fun and silly things and everyone enjoyed seeing what was coming next in each box.
New Year's Eve was nice as well. I have such fond memories of celebrating New Year's Eve when I was a kid with my best friend, Cheryl. And, it always included Dick Clarks Rockin' New Years.....it is so nice to see Dick Clark every year still. The funniest thing that happened was that little Peanut decided to drop the same night as the ball in NYC. I woke up on New Years Day and it was quite obvious that he had dropped and for one day I felt some relief in my poor ribs, where he's been pushing all of these months. That only lasted a day, too! I'm short and he's big and running out of room and his favorite place to have his little behind is shoved up against my ribcage. :-(
Catch up to today........I'd tell you that I'm 38 weeks pregnant now and getting extremely anxious to meet our little dude. We were able to see his the hair on his head in the last couple of ultrasounds and I just can't wait to see how much there is on his little head and what color it is! I have spent the last few months sewing up a storm including lots of baby items, which I'll share with you later this week. My sewing frenzy is one reason why you haven't heard from me in so long...... ;-)
I would also tell you how I sat down and wrote up a long list of goals for 2011.......probably too long, but I will work on them as well as I can. There are several areas, including my prayer life, healthy eating, scrapbooking and sewing. I did work on organizing my photos on my laptop the other day and was sad to see how few photos I took during 2010. That is one thing that needs to change in 2011!
Thanks for joining me today for coffee.....I sure did enjoy visiting and sharing with you......hopefully next week when we meet again for coffee I will be able to share photos of our new little bundle of baby boy!
And, be sure to visit Amy's blog, Lucky Number 13, to have some coffee with some other wonderful ladies!
Take care and God Bless,
