Happy New Year

Hello and Happy New Year to you all. I haven't posted in what seems like forever. I wish I could say I had a good excuse but all I can say is life has kept me busy. I have missed blogging so I am going to try to do better this year. I have enjoyed catching up with every one's blogs and all the beautiful pictures. I really missed my tree and decor this year but we had a nice Christmas all the same. We cut back a lot this year for two reason's one money and two no where to put anything. We were very blessed my good friend Teresa and her hubby Tom let us use there house at the river to have a family Christmas. It was cold but great. We ate good and watched a lot of movies. The girls enjoyed having there own space for a few days.





It was a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend even Abby enjoyed Christmas at the river.

On our last morning there Abby woke Jessica up to go potty. She took some of the most beautiful pictures of the sun coming up. The view is gorgeous.






I just wanted to update you on a few things. Ray spoke to SS we should be hearing something from them real soon. I am still at my job. We are under new management not that I didn't like my old manager but I really like the new one. I am trying to learn as much as I can so hopefully I can transfer within and make more money. Ray and I have been looking for a house wish us luck. I am very excited about 2010 and what it may have to offer. Ray and I stayed in last night and the girls went out. I love the New Year's and being surrounded by friends but it was nice ringing it in on the quiet side. This year I want to stress less enjoy life more and MOVE!

Happy New Year!!

Hope 2010 will bring you good luck and great things will come your way!

We stayed in this year too and watched the ball drop with the kids, first year that they got to stay up.

Hi Donna, I've missed you and Happy New Year, I hope and pray you and your family get a house very soon and all else that you all deserve! Looks like a wonderful Christmas that your girls and even miss Abby enjoyed:) I'm glad you like the new management and can hopefully move up more. I just had to quit my job right before Christmas, I have a herniated disc and 2 bulging ones in my lumbar, I just couldn't do the work anymore! I am hoping once I either get injections or surgery I will be able to work again, sadly though it won't be with animals due to the lifting and constant bending. I hope Ray gets SS and SOON, my gosh they are s-l-o-w!!!! Best wishes for the brand new year Donna!!!!

What wonderful friends to let you use their home on the river. What a blessing!

I wish you all good things in 2010! warm hugs, Linda

I am SO happy that ya'll were able to have the house at the lake for Christmas! I loved the pic of the smiling girls! What beautiful scenery pictures too!

I know 2010 is going to be good for you! I hope and pray you get your own place and Ray gets his SS!

I'm like you...I like doing New Year's Eve on the quiet side at home. Does that make us boring or sensible? :)

Many blessings to you and your family for a Happy New Year, Donna!
