We hope everyone is enjoying 2009! We've been busy spending time with family, celebrating birthdays and generally having fun. The end of 2008 was spent in TN with Brandon's parents and then in SC with my family. The girls traveled really well. They are true Army brats already. We ushered in the new year here too and will head back to AL sometime next week. Ellie will miss a little bit of pre-school, but she'll go to dance class with Gran Jan and hang with Zoe which is much better than school in her opinion anyway. My bday was great. Thanks Ashby! We had fondue and it was delicious! The girls and I traveled across TN, GA and SC on New Years Eve so I was not in the mood to go out that night. We had a tea party and watched the ball drop in our pjs. We've been up later than usual every night, but that's what vacation is all about. Today we spent some more of our Christmas/Bday money and tomorrow everyone (and I do mean EVERYONE) is coming over to my mom's house to celebrate the new year with ham, Hoppin' John and collard greens. Should be fun. Here are some pics of the trip so far and I'll take a bunch more tomorrow. I do still HEART my new camera very much.
