Well I did it, I took a picture for every day of 2009. I think I am going to try again for 2010.

This is one of Luke's fireworks we shot off tonight and will shoot more later. And I even got a little creative and put the words on this picture.

We had our annual Ladies Christmas decoration swap at church tonight. This is a highlight of my year. Everyone brings a Christmas decoration and we play dirty santa. It gets really funny. I had this really pretty wreath that I was so excited to hang on my door this year and someone stole it from me so I ended up with this:

Kinda cute but it is no wreath!

We went to the church building tonight for a short while to help with the breakfast with santa set up for tomorrow. The Renfrow's brought the Wii Mariocart game to set up for their game. Kyle and Jackson were trying it out, you know to make sure it worked right.
