I turned around, and next thing I know, it's a new year!
Happy New Year, all of you.
We celebrated a very nice Christmas with my husbands parents and some of his siblings. Fun as usual! Our oldest daughter LOVED her trip to Sweden, I'm so glad she was able to go.
After celebrating Christmas, we spent two relaxing days at a hotel. The kids swam and we all just chilled, went to a huge mall and had some well needed family time.
We spent New years eve at home with some friends, ate pizza and goodies and visited. Our oldest daughter came back from Sweden the same night, so it was so much fun catching up with her, and getting some Swedish candy!
Since last time I wrote, our 2nd oldest daughter has been doing so much better. She is more relaxed and happy, something we are all very thankful for. She still has a lot to learn, but she's an eager student, so she is already trying out various ways of how to deal with her challenges.
I'm glad she's blessed with a positive nature, that makes any challenge easier to handle.
Our baby is now 8 months old and is getting busier, getting around and making lots of noises. She can also stand, on her own!, for brief moments at the time! Crazy how fast they grow up.
This past weekend I did something I've wanted to do for many, many years. I booked a trip for our whole family to go to Florida in March! We are all so very excited and I can't believe we are actually able to do this! We'll be flying down and stay at a house we rented, close to a beautiful beach.
It seems like a dream and the kids are thrilled!
This last week several of the kids have had the flu, and a few are still running fevers and coughing, so a trip to the south sounds heavenly!
Well, that's pretty much it for now!
I am excited to see what this new year brings, our last few have not been boring!
Oh, I have to add, living here in the Soo is going so well, I really like it :) and last time I checked, my family members agreed!
