The Perfect Holiday!

On Christmas Day, Shawn had to drive to Toledo to pick up his daughter since that's where Toni was, spending Christmas at her Moms. He didn't get here until around 8:00 p.m., but it ended up being the perfect holiday!
Here's my granddaughter opening one of her presents from her Daddy.
And here she is, opening a SpongeBob gift from us.
I just love this picture above.....wish I knew what she was thinking about here!
The very happy Gamma :)

Since I don't get to see this little girl very often, I truly cherish every minute that I do get to spend with her! She is turning into such a smart & beautiful girl & growing up way too fast!

Jim is off from work until the 5th & we took our dd to Traverse City on Saturday for 2 weeks, so we're just enjoying the time alone right now :) We don't have any plans for New Year's Eve yet.....we may just spend it alone, watch some movies or maybe even go see a movie like we did last year. There's a lot of movies out right now that we both want to see.....Marley & Me, Yes Man, 7 Pounds.....they all look really good.

Jim has to bowl tonight, but I'm taking some time off from bowling for a while until I get my health back in order. Luckily, my teammate's sister is going to fill in for me on my Tuesday league, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do about our Wednesday league yet. Jim is going to try to find someone through work to cover for me for a while, so we'll see.

Hope you have a wonderful New Year! I know I'm looking forward to a much better year & will be glad to put 2008 behind me!
