Happy New Year 2008

Beach Trip - Happy New Year!!!

We had the opportunity to go to a beach house in Seaside for the past week. We had such a great time. We left on Monday and came back today (Friday). On Monday, it was just Matthew, Kaela, me and Bill. We had a quiet dinner and watched movies. Very relaxing after a busy Christmas. On Tuesday, Kelli, Piper, Parker, Allie, Alex, Taylor & Alana came down. We made home made fish and chips with our new deep fryer! We fried over 5 pounds of cod and when it was all said and done, there wasn't even one piece left, just tons of smiling people! We played Texas hold 'em and had fun listening to music and hanging out with everyone!

On Wednesday, my Mom & Papa came down to help us bring in the new year! Taylor and Alana had to leave, but Matthew's girlfriend Carlie joined us. We had a nice evening with Prime Rib, Crab and champagne. It was really stormy at the beach so we stayed tucked in by the fire and watched the ball drop!

Yummmm....Prime Rib!

On Thursday, Mom and Papa & Alex and Alex had to leave, so me and Bill, Kaela, Matt & Carlie went into Seaside and had a nice lunch, watched the Rose Bowl game, and played at the arcade for a couple of hours. It was a really fun day!

It's really nice to be home. With the crazy weather that we had last month and with winter break, the kids have been out of school and I've been out of work for the past 3 weeks. I'm going to need the next couple of days to psych myself back into reality. **Big Sigh**

We wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2009. We have a big year coming up. Bill and I will celebrate our 10 year anniversary in May, Alex will be graduating in June and will be going off to college in August. Also in August is our 20th high school reunion for me and Bill.
Stay tuned for many more posts about our busy family! *Cheers*
