happiness... in the new year

Wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year filled with lots of family time, laughter, learning, creativity, peaceful moments and an opportunity to be all that God has created you to be.

Our Christmas celebration was exciting and peaceful and filled with
excitement and joy as new toys were unveiled,
silly moments created for the camera's-sake,
time spent playing in the snow
and cozy time by the fire.

I am blessed to have such a wonderful family and children who are content and creative; children who are never bored because of the never-ending supply of wild imaginings and new ideas for play. Thank you for making me a mother and for giving me endless joy as we spend our days together!

I hope that your new year is spent purposefully pursuing all that you believe in and enjoyment as you journey toward that vision!
Happy 2009 from all of us!
