Happy New Year !

At the grocery store today something caught my attention and told me that it wanted to go home with me. I ignored it at first and went on with my shopping — but, as I was leaving my resistence failed me and I bought it. I think that my low level of resistence may have something to do with reading Lucy’s post yesterday — seeing all of her pictures of flowers made me want some of my own color to look at up close.

I took a picture of how pretty my flower looked sitting in bright colored tissue paper and then of course I took a few more after I took it out of the box.

Later tonight hubby and I are going to light some candles and enjoy some fruit with chocolate dip — mmmm : )  I am not sure if we will stay up long enough to greet the new year, but that’s o.k. — it will be 2010 when we wake up in the morning whether we greet it at midnight or not. 

2009 was a very full year for me and seems to have passed very quickly. There were some big changes with my daughter moving to Illinois and my son and daughter-in-law having a baby — which means that I became a Gramma for the first time. I would have to say that the highlight of this past year is my grandson, so I will end this year with some pictures of baby cuteness.

Such tiny fingers compared to Grampa’s hand.

Snuggle time with Gramma — that’s me : )

Letting his voice be heard.

Some floor time while trying out new shirt from Aunty.

See you all next year ! ! !

    I can tell you a grandson would be the highlight of my year too. How wonderful! What a squeezy little fella.

    And nothing quite says hope to me like a blooming rose in the middle of winter.

    Have a happy new year!!
