Happy New Year

Happy New Year!!! Where does the time go? We are such party animals in my house....the boys...all 3 of them are sound asleep. I woke Charlie up a couple of minutes ago to wish him a Happy New Year. He won't remember it tomorrow morning. Woo, hoo....excitement in the Conner house.

2008 was a year of many ups and downs. For a majority of the year, we waited for Drew. What a grueling time. But....finally on July 31, 2008 he was placed in our arms forever. Life has not been the same since. In a good way.

Ian continues to grow and amaze us. He is such a smart and thoughtful little man (most of the time). It's a challenge and a joy to be his mom.

Both Charlie and I faced job changes this year. I'm now VERY happily employed, but Charlie is still looking. I know 2009 will bring him the job he wants. Right now, he's staying home with boy boys. "Mr. Mom" was never a desired position for him, but he's doing a great job and it's been so good for BOTH of our boys.

Our little family grew this year and we are so blessed. Being a mom is the best thing I've ever done and I am so thankful that God allowed me to be "mommy" to these two wonderful little boys. I'm honored to be the wife of such an amazing husband. Charlie has been my rock and my soul mate for the past 22 years...I must have been 10 or 11 when we met :) I look at my family and I have to say...WOW...just WOW.

Happy 2009 Everyone!

Lol Nadra...10 or 11. ;) You are so cute!
I'm so glad your happy family was able to celebrate life together at it's most realistic to begin 2009. ;) We did too! We were all sleeping...I personally can't think of a better way to celebrate these days. Hope 2009 brings many blessings to you friend!

So glad that this year starts your family more waiting!!

Hoping that this year also brings Charlie, gainful employment, although being Mr. Mom after the waiting you've done must be awfully rewarding too

Praying that 2009 finds the perfect job for Charlie whether it be at home with the boys or somewhere else.They are SO cute and I loved the comment that Ian made about Jesus and Santa so precious.Sounds like he is good listener to Mommy and Daddy and his teachers at church.
