Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all family. friends, and those who just stumble upon this blog looking for pictures of ultrasounds, milkyway cakes, and hot sauce recipes.

It's been a great year for our family, we've seen our daughter grow into a charming, inquisitive, mischievous little girl, welcomed a new nephew into our family, we welcomed a new puppy into our home, and we've had some great fun with family and friends.

We've really had a ball this year, from Jackie's birthday party, to watching her walk, earning my PE license, to watching Alison risk life and limb riding on a zip line across a waterfall in Mexico with our friend Lupita.

We have much to look forward to in the next year, the least of which is my planning of a 10th anniversary homecoming party for my USMMA class.

I've been blessed to have had some time off from work. The last week has been really splendid, I'm sure Alison can't wait to have me back at work. Today we had some fun playing around with a few of my Christmas gifts. We made applesauce using my new apple peeling device, and pressure canner.

Happy new year to all!... I've been informed that next year will be the 10th anniversary of our typical new years extravaganza. This year was a bit subdued, hence my late night posting that can actually be read. So, the grandparents can fight over who gets the grand kids, but all are invited next year to what will be a party that may not be forgotten for decades to come... or so I have been warned.

Here's to a great 2012!
