It's a New Year!!

Ok, now that it's 2009, I made it one of my New Year's resolutions to make more posts on my blog! So here I am! I guess I want to start by apologizing for being "technically challanged". :) I didn't even realize until today that people had posted comments! Wow, I feel so lame! I'm sorry - I promise to be more diligent about blogging and following others' blogs.

With that said, we had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Christmas '08 was our first one with just our little family. It was definitely different but it was very nice, too. Although a little quieter than our other Christmases, our kiddos are finally getting the hang of this Santa Claus thing and were very excited this year! (Well, Kylene and Tanner at least!) Kylene was the first one up and was thrilled when she discovered all the presents under the tree. Once Alan and I rolled out of bed and got the camera and camcorder out, the present opening began. There was plenty of snow on the ground from prior storms but I've always wanted a true "white Christmas" with snow falling as we opened presents. I grew up in Colorado Springs so you would think I've had plenty of white Christmases but actually, it only snowed once on Christmas that I can remember and it was extremely early in the morning, so I really don't count it! LOL, anyway, this year I got my wish. The snow was gently drifting down just like a snow-globe! The ambiance it provided was perfect - I couldn't have asked for anything more! :)

Fantastic family photo!! I wish we were so photogenic. I'm kind of lamenting our extreme whiteness here. It'll be a COLD week and I'm afearing being in it. :) I'm looking forward to keeping up with your family blog!
