2008 Year in Review

Little Updates

December came and went, Christmas came and went and now it's already a new year, the kids are back at school and things are getting back into the groove again. I can't believe how fast time is going.

We had a good Christmas, the boys got spoiled again as usual, but I can't complain because Sean surprised me with a new Nikon digital SLR camera. It's fun and I've got lots of learning to do, but I love being able to take the shots, the close ups and see them right away. I never thought I'd move away from film and I doubt I'll move completely away from it, but right now I'm having fun with it. I haven't downloaded the first picture either. I'm not sure what's wrong with me. Crazy I guess.

The boys finished up indoor soccer and they actually had a pretty good season. I think the spring season is going to be a good one for them. They picked up three new players, including one girl, but she's a great little player. They decided against Upward Basketball this season and I can't say I'm sad over it. Whew, a break.

In a week we leave and are going to the mountains for a week with some friends. We are going to ski and tube. I'm just hoping it snows a little more. But it's started to get a little colder and hopefully will be great weather for us. It's been in the 70s here on the coast and well I'm ready for a blast of wintry weather.

The boys are doing well, Evan I'm praying is back into his old self and he's doing good in school and doesn't seem to mind going as bad now. He's just as sweet as can be, and is in the loving mood where he just loves to give out hugs (only to me of course, but I don't mind) sorry Grandmama's! Sean is just as sweet as ever, I'm really enjoying these ages. I hope it last alittle longer too. I'm not ready for them to want to do their own things. But I know it's coming.

But I'm thinking with Smirks like these, I'm in for a real treat!!
