Happy freakin New Year everybody! :) I can't believe it's already 2010, I feel old lol! I look back to 2009 and it was..... an adventure and I'm excited to start a new year :) It's so crazy to think back on the past year and everything that happened! WEIRD! I'm excited for 2010 and looking forward to my new resolutions that I'll be setting for myself! I'm excited to see what this year has to bring me :) New Years was fun, and of course spent with the family! HAHA! I'm telling you, this is my favorite time of year because our family is ALWAYS together throughout all the holidays! Some of our family friends Jobi, Enoch, Aubrey, Ese and all their cute kids even got to come and spend some of New Years Eve with us! :) We usually go over to Jon and Tashas for New Years Eve and spend New Years there... so this year that's what we did. The family went to Jon and Tashas and of course there was an amazing Thanksgiving dinner that Tasha cooked, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, corn and the whole shabang! It was DELICIOUS! After, we brought out the goodies, snacked all night and hung out until the countdown... The countdown is so fun because we all get so excited! Even though I didn't get to be with Uani on our first New Years I was sad but survived :) it made me feel better knowing he was with his family too, there's nothing better then being with our families! Jon and Tasha even bought cute cute New Years hats and party thingys lol... I don't know what they're called but the whistles you blow into and the confetti things that you pull, which all the kids LOVED! I wish I would have gotten more pictures but here is what I have :) Enjoy and Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2010 brings you much joy and happiness!

Christmas... was... AMAZING! Every Christmas morning is very traditional in our family and I love it! We all wake up... start on our breakfast feast which consists of dad or one of the boys bomb french toast, sausage patties, hash browns, eggs, bacon, orange juice and milk! Usually is Dad, Jojo, Jon and Jaymz that are in charge of the Christmas breakfast but me and mom helped out a lot this Christmas :) Mom ended up making the hash browns and I whipped up the eggs and cooked the sausage patties, it was fun to be in the kitchen in the morning with the boys cooking breakfast! All the siblings and grandkids got to mom and dads around noon at the latest, when Loni and Collin walked in the house Loni was holding a wrapped box and handed it to me and said "Uani said to call him when you open it" My sweet Uani sent a present to loni to wrap for me to open on Christmas, him and Loni made a good team and I love them both so much.. Uani is such a sweetheart, he knows me so well already! Inside the box was a bunch of Oregon State gear that is exactly what I would have picked out and also a sentimental gift inside that had a big meaning behind it all, receiving that gift from Uani topped my whole Christmas off :) we all grubbed on the most amazing breakfast and then headed downstairs to open presents from Nana and Papa! We all got great gifts from mom and dad and also each other :) The kids were so excited because Mom is always so good at Christmas shopping for the grandkids! Thanks to mom, she's amazing and the grandkids couldn't have been happier! :) I hope you all had a safe and very Merry Christmas! :)
