Farewell 2006....

Well, another year is behind us. Time seems to slip by faster and faster as I get older. The turn of the century was so huge. It's hard to believe that was seven years ago already. We've had our ups and downs this year, as I'm sure everyone did. Looking back, I'd say 2006 was a favorable year for us. Valerie sure has made everything more interesting. It's amazing how much she has grown and learned in just a year. We watched her learn how to walk, talk, sing, climb, and dance. She grew from a baby to a toddler overnight it seems! Overall, we managed to avoid any major setbacks. I found some great friends! I had lots of fun getting to know all the mom's in the playgroup. I finally took a few cake decorating classes that I have longed to do for years. I managed to drop below my pre-pregnancy weight, only to get pregnant again with in a few months after doing so! lol I was involved in my first fender bender, and Clint followed by being in a wreck a few months later. Clint took on more responsiblity at work (job security!), decided to go back to school, traveled around the U.S. and then to Canada.

Goals for 2007?? Save more money and keep better track of our finances. I would LOVE to at some point declutter my entire house! inside and out!! And keep the whole house cleaner. That will be a tough one though. And of course, work on dropping the baby weight after Veronica is born.

It looks like tonight will be a low-key New Year's Eve for us. We're still not over the sickness, so it's probably best we just stay home and rest. We're going to make nachos and hopefully some of the neighbors will pop fireworks. I'm pretty sure we'll be sound asleep by midnight anyway!

Happy New Year, everyone!! Best wishes for 2007!

Happy New Year to all of you! It is hard to believe the millenium was 7 years ago. Time keeps flying quicker and quicker and I'm sure once a child is in the picture. Time goes even faster.
