Happy New Year 2009!

The first day of 2009 has come and is almost gone already. I can tell you that this year will probably be like every other and go by quickly, just judging by today.

Before today, I had been contemplating what to do on Jan 1 since many people say that what you do on that day is what you will be doing the rest of the year... I wondered if I wanted to clean my house, so that I would have a clean home, scrapbook and make the un-keepable resolution of "a page a day" (kudos to all those who can and DO keep it), or what ever else... As the day came though, I found myself having the blahs... So instead I did something that, as I look back on the day, realize it is what made em truly happy...spent it with my darling little girl and husband.

Today, I did anything Abby wanted - we bundled up and played outside, went to McDonald's and had french fries, had a milkshake, took a nap on the couch snuggled together, and played guitar hero together! Yes, I truly think that would be a wonderful way to spend the rest of the year!

Here is what I have to share today. It is a bit of my 25 days of Christmas album. It really did make scrapbooking Christmas so much easier. I made the book in November and it was so easy to just pop the pictures in there later! Almost all the supplies used were Cosmo Cricket.

and here is my wonderful little one today - the first day of the year!
God Bless You,


  1. Mary, what a sweet album! you can look back on that for years and relive the memories it chronicles.
    Abby is a doll....

  2. Mary, such a good idea, and there you have it all wrapped up and ready to go. Precious memories not only for you but Abby also. Good luck with the new job. Change can be exciting!!! Your patients are lucky to have someone who cares so much. My Mom was a diabetic, she battled it everyday.

  3. What a beautiful album with precious memories. Abby is so cute!
