Isn't she cute!
Now I would like to tell a story to all of you about the bad year we had. Last year actually in December 2007, I was offered the most fantastic job I have ever had. Of course Ian and I both were excited about the new job the new home the new everything. We felt it was our chance to reinvent ourselves and our lives. The crux was that we had to move before the first of the new year. We packed up all our worldly possessions (more than we realized we had) and started our new life on December 31, 2007. That meant we were unpacking boxes with no hope of a traditional New Year's meal on New Year's Day. Stephen's family (Grammy, Pop, and Janet) graciously treated us to dinner that day at a Tuscaloosa Icon of a restaurant- - Taco Casa! Needless to say everyone within hearing distance of me now knows that if you move on New Year's Eve and you eat tacos at Taco Casa you will have a terrible year financially and emotionally and physically! Did I mention earlier that I developed ulcers after moving over here! Ha ha... all good fun! yeah this year we had cabbage, black-eyed peas, and pork roast like you are supposed to do! Plus we put our puzzle together! This year has to be better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So now I really am going to close. So many other stories to tell on another night! I am going to post one more picture although I really don't want to because it is not a complete picture of my family! However, it is a fun picture of most of us on Christmas Eve with our crowns on!
