Post Holiday Blues...

The after holiday blues affect everyone to some degree--myself, I feel exhausted, lonely, and overwhelmed...yet, hopeful, excited, and very blessed. The new year always has a way of extending you the opportunity to "set the bar higher", to conquer new goals, and to get ramped up as to what the new year will bring. Yet moving into another year brings bouts of yearnings for those familiar comfort moments that brought us security and serenity...Oh well...Life goes on!!

I am truly blessed that I can "check off" another year and, I am so looking forward to enjoying my family and friends this year. 2009 could be my winning lottery year...could be the year I am featured in In-Touch magazine...could be the year that the "Rock" tries to steal me from Tom...could be...yea yea, you get the point!

I will end this blues blog by saying--Hello 2009...Goodbye 2008. Reflecting back is nostalgic and comforting, but looking forward is adventurous and exhilarating... So look out family, friends, followers, and fans...this is going to be the year of big adventures and lots of happy dances!!

Our trampoline snowball fight, in December, in the rain, totally fabulous...

Randall, our snowman...yes, Kaleb is taller than all of us...

Aidan's wish is my command......Aidan understands that after God comes Meme...

Jake and Aidan playing Kaleb's crane game, the most popular game that was played. Each male said they were the best, but really Mom rules. Please note the fashion statement Jake has with his glow stick headband, and Aidan's glow stick belt...Look for this to be the new fashion statement of 2009...

We were so honored to have Zachary and Karen spend the holiday with us...Life puts family miles apart, but there is no place like home...Zack-a-Mundo please come home to see us more often, it is always a blast to have you around...

The wonderful "Darmon" clan...it does not get any better that this!!! Mary so graciously hosted this years family fun times...We celebrated Gordon's 39ish Birthday on Christmas Eve, and had our Gift grab bag exchange on the 27th. Brenda had her famous prizes for bingo, and the reminiscing stories and laughter could be heard out into the neighborhood...

Three generations...Sister one, Sister two and Asher...


Bath time was one of my best times with the babes...one look at these faces and I am sure you will figure out why...Aidan rules the tub...

Asher just loves the bubbles....

Great Grams Gus is the Grandma of all Grandmas...to be a Grandma half as wonderful as she is, is all I ask... Thanks Mom for always being there...

Now I know you are looking at this picture and thinking...Did Lucy go off the deep end??? for those of you that know me, know I always ask Santa for new boobs every year...this year was no exception. I decided to hang a reminder on the tree for Santa... my wonder bra, still wondering when it will be filled...Oh well, there is always next year!!!

Ha, excellent post mom. Keep it up. There could have been more of me though, and less of these grand kids who never buy you coffee or take Kaleb to school.

Lucy said...

I don't know what a retro hippy chick is, but I love it and more importantly, loved all the Lucy pictures. Keep them coming. Jake is not fooling anybody by trying to hide his hairline with a glow stick head band. Classic Jake.

T Buss said...

Ha Jake, I wondered why you had glowstick headbands in every color. I knew there had to be a reason...
