2 More days of 2007

Well we are almost at the end of the road of 2007. Two more days and it will be a whole new year to look forward to. I must say, this year has gone SO fast...between work and the kids in school and keeping the house up time just seems to run away doesn't it? Hmmm...I wonder what the highlights of this year would be?

  • William starting grade 7 and Jacob starting grade 1. This meant that for the first year in about 20 or so, I had all hands in school full time. which meant a lovely late summer holiday for me. Yay!!
  • Hallie was born on August 7, 2007. She is growing like a weed and such a little doll. We all love her so much.
  • Jennifer started working at Home Hardware.
  • Matthew got remarried - again. tee hee.
  • Lily was born on March 5, 2007. Jennifer and Williams FIRST first cousin. Another doll for us to love and adore. What IS it about these little girls???
  • On a sad note, James' mom died in June 2007. She was very very ill and at the end her death was expected, but it was terribly sad nonetheless.
  • I turned 37, James turned 39.
  • Jennifer hit the downtown scene with a vengeance as she turned 19 this year.
  • William went into his last year as a "tween", turning 12 in February.
  • Jacob went officially into a school ager as he turned 6 in October.
  • Mom and dad FINALLY retired this year. Their last day of work was in November and they are absolutely LOVING not having to go in and clean anymore.
  • Lots of wedding planning this year as Corey and Amanda are getting married on June 23, 2008. I love wedding planning!
  • Lindsey and Jamie got married and are now expecting little Nolan Gray in March. All of these babies!! So exciting!
  • To top off the year our roof went on the house. We are still awaiting proper fixing as the snow has made it impossible to get up there, but at least it will be done when the spring comes.
  • we had a wonderful Christmas and we will have a great New Year. Bring on 2008!!
What a great list...I think I will turn it into a scrapbook page :)
