My daughter and her little family were here for almost 2 weeks!! It was so good to have them here. Our little grandson is such a joy! He really enjoyed opening his presents!
He is such sweetie! He loves to be talked to and will 'talk' back to you. Hard to beleive he is 3 mo old!
The downside of Christmas was sickness. My son, husband, then I got the sinus/chest crude that has been going around. It has zapped me of my energy and today I feel like the crude is trying to come back. Then Christmas Eve, my son had the 24 hr tummy bug. We were all concerned that little Andrew would get sick but thankfully he didn't. And thankfully, no one else got the tummy bug!! My 78 yr old mother did not get to meet Andrew :(. She has been sick for over a week. Flu like symptoms but the flu-test was negative.
Andrew loved his "buddy bear" mimi and grandpa got him. It is so soft and mimi made sure that nothing would pull off or that it wouldn't fuzz up if he put it in his mouth. I don't know how many bears I tested. I pulled and tugged on every part of the bear. This one is also asthma and allergy friendly.
We had our first snow of the year last night. Just a skiff on the ground and it is soo cold!
Today is my son's 21st birthday!! Hard to believe.
Classes start back next week. I'm looking forward to getting back into the routine of it. I need to get my book bag and other things together and ready.
I'm already looking forward to Spring. Just 11 more weeks, if I counted right! I'm sure we will have more winter weather before it actually starts to feel like Spring.
I have not taken time to reflect on 2011 or to look forward to what I would like 2012 to be.
I dont' make resolutions. I would like to set some goals.
What are your goals for 2012? What do you do to reach your goals?
