rock around the clock/wake me up before you go go!

Needless to say... the last few weeks have been a whirlwind! And here we go... down the home stretch to W-day... one week and counting!

Let's get this party started with some sure to make you smile... unless you're TLC (HA! love you, Tara Leigh!) Here's Bella smoking a stogie. Hahaha... or... chewing on her bone. :-)

And in case you were wondering... I'm watching you!

Here is my sister, Shelly, modeling (read: trying on) some Christmas presents... (dad's sunglasses and Ginny's game-worn Luke Scott Astros jersey)

It was a great first Christmas for me, Stephen and Bella.. Although the family is ever-changing, it has been exciting and fun seeing all the new pieces of the puzzle come together.

Shelly, Ginny and me. (Should I be wearing a cream-colored hat of some sort?)

Christmas Eve present time at my Aunt and Uncles house (next door). Steve wore that Santa hat for about 4 days straight. Hahahahaha.

Here is our kinda blurry but still nice Christmas picture. :-)

Then back to Jacksovnille for Christmas Day presents. Here, Stephen is modeling some of his gifts (and the hat...).

Then, the friday after Christmas, Shelly threw me a bridal shower at my Aunt's house. It was very nice. Here is me.

Then, for New Years, Stephen and I went to a fancy italian restaurant, and walked in the park (shown below... it was dark but had Christmas lights in the trees)...

...and walked down to the river to watch the fireworks. The shoot them from two barges amidst the bridges and we were right in between the displays. It was a REALLY good show! In this picture you can kinda see the barge they are being shot from and the bridges.

I know pictures of fireworks are a dime a dozen, but there were a lot of really pretty ones... such as...

Our friends Jeremy, Andrew and Ryan were there watching with us. Good times.

Here's us at the river before the fireworks began. Happy New Year's folks. I think 2008 will be a big year for us... I hope it will be filled with surprise goodness for you all too!
