We made it home from beautiful Hawaii late Friday night, and first thing Saturday morning the kids were all ready to open their presents from Nana and Pappaw, Mammy and Grandude, and Gramma Great. Thank you to all the grandparents! We can't wait for next Christmas when you will actually get to see them open their gifts.
Today is New Year's Day, and 2008 promises to be a busy year for us. We will be finishing out our time in Hong Kong and moving back to the States in July. The boys will start a new school in the US, and Maddie Rae will go to her first "school" with her cousin, Mallaney. Maddie Rae will have one more surgery in May, and we will hopefully have some visitors coming in the next few months. We will at last be moving into our "phantom house" that we've owned for 4 years but never lived in, and I will finally be able to renovate and decorate after a 6 year hiatus. Maddie Rae will get to meet all of her extended family, and I will be able to walk into a grocery store and spend a mere $3 for a gallon of milk.
