The end of the Year is coming!

So I am getting ready to write my Christmas blurb for cards this year, and I usually go back and read the old ones - this was my all time favorite, so I thought I would share it with you all:

Dear Friends and Family,

Well the holiday cards just didn’t make it out in time so I truly hope you don’t mind receiving at least one more! 2006 seemed to fly by and now I can hardly believe that it is 2007. Usually I want to reflect on the past year and tell everyone what great things we did and celebrate our accomplishments. However, this year I just find myself hoping for another year just like the last.

Like most other moms of small children, I often find myself wishing for one thing – more time. However, I have discovered, after thinking about this past year what I really want is to just hold time still, just for a little while longer. I would like another year of being able to kiss boo-boo’s and wipe tears. Another year of being the only one in the house able to decode 3 year old talk such as knowing which juice is the “other-one-kind” and which video is “the one with the red-haired guy”. Another year of chocolate ice cream is more powerful than money. Another year of mommy watch this, look what I did, and hold me’s.
Another year of ‘made-up words’ such as “marsh-a-roni” for marshmallows and “cudoo” for playdoh. And many more years of mommy I love you’s.

So, as we begin a new year, I wish all of you the best of health and happiness, and the ability to hold on to just a little bit more of your time!

Love you all!
April
