new year's eve 2007

 This is a picture from last year on New Year's Eve.  I think that 2008 just flew by.  It's amazing how much Abby has grown and changed.   Will take a picture tonight and post it later...but for now.  Happy New Year's Eve!

crazy christmas cheer!

We have had a great Christmas week!  It was a very busy and crazy week, but Abby was a trooper and had a great time with cousins and many different family members.   From watching Christmas Vacation on Christmas Eve to seeing old high school friends to talking about other crazy family members and eating WAY too much of Mom's amazing food, it was a White family Christmas to remember.

 Christmas is such a fun time of the year.  Not only do we celebrate Christ's birth, but we are surrounded by family and friends that we love dearly.  I always love to go home and be with my entire family.  It is always such a special, precious time for me.  It's even more fun now that we have kids to chase around and watch grow up together.  I always hate to leave, but know that the next time we are together will be even more special and something that I  look forward to.

looonnggg week

It's been a long week and a half around here.  I had shingles last week and needless to say, Abby and I didn't get out much at all!  So far this week, it's been too cold to really get out and do anything.  So...we are bored.  Abby is putting boxes on her head for some entertainment....more fun to come next week in Arkansas for Christmas!!

neighborhood Christmas party

I love our neighborhood!  Tonight, they had a Christmas tree lighting party from 4-7.  They had choirs singing Christmas carols, gingerbread houses, hot chocolate, cookies, Santa, a huge Christmas tree and bounce houses.  It was so much fun to walk around and see neighbors all out having fun together.  We loved it!!!  Abby was brave enough to get in the bounce house.  Bo and I couldn't believe she even got in, much less loved it.  We didn't get to stay for the actual lighting of the tree because it is past Abby's bed time, but loved being there early.  Merry Christmas!
