I still haven't actually recorded our Christmas trip in a nutshell. For 11 days we stayed in Ross' parent's gorgeous house:
We ate tons of food, stayed up past 1am every 'night', watched movies, ate more food, played in in the snow, had lots of great help for our little ones, and spent quality time with all of the beautiful people pictured below.
It's always SO hard to leave but so good to be home with some routine and some normal bed times. I've never been quite so excited for the new year-- it feels like it's going to be a good one. I get to watch my BEAUTIFUL new baby girl grow older and cuter every day, listen to Sophia's vocabulary increase by the minute, spend one more year with my handsome husband, all while NOT being pregnant... not even a little bit. Getting in shape? I've got nowhere to go but up, and my jogger is on it's way... feelin' pumped. Hobbies to make me feel fulfilled? ;) I've got a great camera to figure out and go crazy with. Lifestyle? I've got my new neighborhood market that really could not BE any cuter and I get to feel justified shopping there nearly every day as it's a walk away and WAY cheaper than Ralphs, Albertsons, etc. (I went the other night and stocked up on my canned pumpkin for $.44 (they were clearing out holiday stuff), and butterscotch chips for $.36, and on the way out, picked out some free fresh flowers that expired that day. I love this store.)
Anyway... I'm feeling good. The vacation was great, life is back on, and I'm SO looking forward to 2008.
