Wow I cant believe 2009 is already here. Its seems like just last year everyone was freaking over the BIG, which turned out to be ridiculous, Y2K scare. (How many of you stocked up on bottled water and flash light batteries?) My 10 year high school reunion is this year. I'm really starting to feel old and notice how fast time is passing me by. When did I grow up?
How was Christmas for everyone? Since I'm no longer a kid, and have kid of my own Christmas sure was different this year. I think Santa forgot me. He didn't get me an Ipod or anything at all, so if you happen to see him, I give you the OK to smack him upside the head. I guess I was on his naughty list. Hmmmm. My MIL gave me a cozy thrown blanket, in a lovely shade of orange, which I love.
Being back in Georgia for Christmas was really strange. I thought it would be more exciting (and for lack of a better way to say it) a better holiday time, but it wasn't. My mother is not the family type, and doesn't enjoy gathering and Christmas parties. etc. For many many years now, a card with a Benjamin is her idea of a Christmas gift. My father finally made the trip (around 2 hour drive) to meet his first grandson. He brought Blake a noisy police car, which Blake does love, but me not so much. On that note, Christmas for Blake was magical. At my last count, he received 40 things from everyone combined including dvds, shoes, toys, hotwheels cars and Lightning McQueen things for his room........Note to grandparents.....its not nice to out do Santa. I loved watching him rip into the wrapping paper. He really enjoyed that part. And the look on his face once the inside was revealed precious and priceless. He stopped for a moment to looked at his gift, like wow this is for me. So cute and innocent. Christmas from the eyes of a child is pure magic.
(yeah santa brought needed items bc the
grandparents took care of the toys and then some.)
I hope everyone has a happy and safe new year in 2009. May your days be filled with Peace, Love and Happiness throughout 2009.
