... and now it is over...

We have had a good week...

We played outside in the leaves and had a leaf fight with papi. I won the fight when I stuffed a handful of leaves down his pants. As I reflect back over 2009, I think that this moment of sheer glee may have been my highlight for the year.



















The kids have laughed a lot and stayed up late.






We now have a house full of trucks of all sizes.



Our friends invited us over for a seafood boil, which was divine. I made pisco sour which was fabulous and flan which was sublime.





There is always a strange feeling when Christmas is over. So much build up and then it is gone. I can't believe it is the last week of 2009.

New Year's Eve looks promising... not because we have exciting plans, but because this may be the first year, in many, that we actually make it to midnight.

I hope your Christmas was lovely. Are you ready to ring in 2010?

And you think MY pictures are gorgeous. Those kids are stunning and you take fantastic photos of them.

And I haven't made it to midnight on New Year's in at least five years. I have a feeling this year won't be any different....

You got some awesome shots! I love the leaves falling and the facial expressions! Far from your traditional Christmas photos.
I love your new profile pic too! You look great!
I can imagine how happy you were to win the fight with a good stuffing :)

Your family is beautiful. I'm really hoping that 2010 is a good year. I don't know about anyone else but I'm ready for 2009 to be over.
