Happy New Year

As I traveled the roads today in my last ditch effort to get miles put on my van...not really, just had some people to see...I found myself reflecting on our year...between bathroom stops. Here are a few thoughts of mine or the girls ( they are funnier)...

1. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. My girls tell me frequently how pretty I am.

2. No one has ever been in my corner the way Steve is...he would always be my first pick unless we are playing Canasta, then he's OUT!

3. Olivia is not Jewish, even though she likes to proclaim she is, but her practiced southern drawl will crack up the most serious person.

4. I have the best bunch of friends a girl could chose, whether it is a face I see in person, or a friend who writes words that I read on a blog.

5. "Thinking of others first", "not having something to say if it is not nice", and "no snatching" are rules to live by.

6. We will most likely add another person to our family in the next year.

These are just a few of our thoughts...we are a blessed family and so thankful God takes care of us. We look with expectation to the new year, 2009, which holds a wealth of memories and a storehouse of blessings.
As you can see, our family likes to do it a little differently...so here it is 8:45 p.m. and we are toasting in the new year. CHEERS! to all of you! Now off to bed!

I have always thought you were pretty too. The girls are correct. Happy New Year! I am glad the Porvazniks do it up right.

This was great...I enjoyed reading your reflections about the last year and what's to come.

We celebrated Hanukkah this year...Olivia would have loved lighting the Menorah and playing Dreidel, Dreidel with us...my two played and won lots of gelt this year!
