Happy New Year, everyone! December flew by in a flash and I am kinda grateful it's over. Usually I am one who would love for Christmas to last forever, but I am too excited for this child to come, that I couldn't put the tree down fast enough. Nesting and all! We had a fabulous (quiet) Christmas. We got to visit with some family and friends that we haven't seen in years, got sick (sorry Barb I missed lunch) felt better, then got sick again. Nothing compaired to my friend Julie and her kids! They are still sick from Christmas and I feel aweful. Shopping and cleaning have pretty much taken up my days since then.
We also had a quiet New Years with a candle lit dinner and sparkling peach juice. Ian and I both get the bug to clean and organize this time of year so I am loving it extra this time of the pregnancy. Today I have just a handful of things to do (organizational wise) and I will be pretty much ready for her to come. We just have the carseat and stroller to purchase, diapers and wipe and we are set!!!
Next week I am going to a three day retreat with some friends to scrapbook the weekend away. I have been sketching and printing pictures so I can just slap layouts together. I plan on having all (9) layouts that need to be finished for 2006 (yes I am finally caught up) my pregnancy album started and finished, and more pre-made baby book pages done! WOO HOO!!! I cannot wait to finally scrapbook again and not feel like I have to clean every little space! What a nice break from myself!
