Hello '09!

Preston wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Christmas was so much fun for Preston this year! We spent Christmas Eve at Lake James with my mom's family and then headed back home for Christmas in Fort Wayne. Christmas morning was really special at home just the three of us watching Preston open his gifts. I had big plans to make us a nice breakfast, but we had just thrown out all our food that had gone bad when the power was out and to complicate things further, our kitchen was in terrible shape (as it is again - thanks to our slower than average cabinet guys) so it was hard to fix anything other than toast and coffee. As a side note- I just have to say that the next house we buy will come WITH a fabulous kitchen because this remodel might just be the end of me. Thankfully, we had tons of food awaiting us at Aunt Kim's house for the Erb Family Christmas that day, so we knew we weren't in danger of going hungry. :) We have yet to celebrate with my dad's family because of the ice storm and then the WORLD'S WORST stomach bug that hit our house two days after Christmas and just left, so we are looking forward to that. Here are a few pictures of the holiday:

One of my resolutions is to make more blog posts- even if it's just putting up a few pictures here and there in order to stay updated because Preston is changing so much these days. We are thankful that the new year is upon us as we felt like the ice storm and the flu threw things off for the end of '08. Not to worry, though... we are now healthy and raring to go - expecting great things for 2009! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is looking forward to a healthy and happy new year!

Ruby is apparently unimpressed with Preston's new barn. I think she's just jealous.
