Bye Bye 2009!

Well, we're getting ready to ring in the new year! We're going to go eat dinner with some friends and then come back to our house and play some games and maybe watch the countdown. It's funny how there's no more staying out until the new year comes in when you have a toddler. I wouldn't change it for anything, though! :o) The past two days have been nice and relaxing...the in-laws are out of town, so we're babysitting Charley--who is our dog, by the way! Ha! Hallie loves having Char-Lee Echols (as she calls him) here. I'm not sure the feeling is mutual, though. They've enjoyed chasing each other around the house, I think. Yesterday, Hallie painted. And she got introduced to her very first "Super Whooper" cushion. She, of course, thought it was hilarious...but too loud. Ha! Today we had a little girlie day--a little shopping at Target (despite the congestion I'm feeling), lunch at Chick-fil-A, and lots of new friends made (on Hallie's part). It was a great last day of 2009, I think! Have a happy and safe New Year's Eve!! What will you be doing to ring in the new year?!

Laughing at Daddy making the whooper cushion "toot"! Ha!


"Char-Lee Echols!!!!!"

And there must be something in our wall. This is the very
spot where Charley spends all his time. I'm not kidding. He
is still standing there. Stood there all morning. He just
stands and stares. Perhaps he sits when we're not watching.

Happy New Year to all of you!! Where has the year gone??? Where have the last 10 gone??? Keep an eye on Charley..it might be a mouse or again, dogs are good "detectors"...something might be wrong in the wall..you never know. Are you staying up to watch 2010 come in?? For us, probably not..too old. :-) Love you, Mom

Nonna's right. Dogs are good detectors. I hope that it is not a rat. =)
