Welcome 2009!!!

And here we go into another New Year!!

The New Year has always been exciting for me. Not only does the year start fresh, but I have my birthday just 3 days before the start of the new year, so I feel a sense of an exciting new adventure too. Well I think it was more exciting when I was 6 turning 7, or 15 turning 16 or the much anticipated 17 turning 18 and the epitome of all birthdays 20 turning 21. But still, that exhilarating feeling of a new adventure has never left me, so I'm still excited about both my birthday and the new year.

This year is the year to cut the clutter. Stop laughing. I mean it. No I mean stop laughing. I have a whole year. By the end of that year my desk may be cleaner. Stop laughing at me!

I've already started.

See? I cut my hair:

And there is nothing more exciting than starting a New Year with a new haircut. Well, except starting the New Year with a new baby. And I've already done that. And so have my Mom & Dad.

....and a lot of memories.

Leipers Fork Parade

Today was the 5th annual Leipers Fork Christmas parade.

First we stopped to see Santa:

Then some free cookie decorating:

Waiting for the parade to start:

Here it comes!

And just in case you're interested in joining the above group:

Not everyone can pop a wheelie on their zero turn mower!

No parade is complete without the septic truck:

The human snow globe man (singing Mala Kaliki Maca):

And that's how Leipers Fork does Christmas.

Snowy, Snowy Day

The morning started out with the first snowflakes of the season.

Kitty cat wasn't quite sure. Should she catch the flakes or go inside?

In came the firewood and in came Kitty Cat.

And a cup of hot coffee to start the day.

The snowy, snowy day.
