Ahhh the holidays are with us once more. Time to spend with loved ones, friends and family has never been sweeter. This holiday has been a busy one for me and my clan. One weekend was a Christmas party and right after, Christmas. The time we spent wrapping gifts was decimated in under a minute. I think it is a new record for my brood. Deanna my oldest decided she was to grown to sit under the tree. I was kinda of disappointed at that this year. But what can I do. Even though I'd love to keep her my baby forever. I see her blossoming into a beautiful young woman. She has her own identity and is straight on her path. So that in itself is a blessing but I can't help but be nostalgic for the little girl with barney pajamas who woke me at five am on Chrstmas morning.

All in all it has been a good holiday but.... Whew..I am tired. this year has been a busy one and I am looking forward to relaxing a bit and getting back to my writing.

I am sure 2009 will bring all of us more suprises and blessings that we can imagine. For us it will be a new arrival of a little one in the spring And what ever comes to you and the path you take in life. I hope it helps you and your family prosper in all ways.

Here are a few pictures like I promised. Of both Christmas day and The Christmas party from last week. I couldn't post them all, you'll have to find them on my myspace website. :)

Enjoy and Blessed Be

This is the Christmas party now..LOL..We had an awesome time with great friends who came by to celebrate with us. I cooked up a storm and a half. My dad gave Robert his rum punch recipe which he duplicated to a tee. Everyone said it tasted great. I guess he is on his way to becoming a Bajan man..LOL
I was exhasuted after all that cooking. So I spent most of my time in the comfy recliner resting my back. I was the picture taker for the evening. :)
Kay and my preggo self. I know I am getting rounder everday....
Everyone keeps telling me I am beautiful and I glow..I just see round.
By summer I'll be back to my usual sexy self. *Grin*

I kept reading and saw the word Bajan, wuhlosssss

I just want to say it made me proud to know you are a Bajan.
You have written so many books!!!!
