Out with the Old and in with the New!!!

The new year that is!  Happy new year to you all!  We had a wonderful one here...the only thing missing was Guy.:(  But, we'll be seeing him again soon next weekend when the kids and I return to Lagos.  We've been keeping busy around here.  Mom, Dad, and I took the kids to the Magic House Children's Museum in Saint Louis.  All I can say is OH MY GOSH!!!!!! there was so many things for the kids to see and do.  They LOVED it there.:)  Mom, Dad , and me were very tired when we left ( four hours later!) but it was definitely worth it.  I can't even begin to describe everything there is there.. so I'll let the pictures do the "talking". I went here on field trips when i was little and I will say that this place has changed alot!  But, it is just as fun as I remembered!:)

 And, this new year brings another wedding anniversary for Guy and me.  Thirteen years today!!! Wow!!!  Thirteen years ago today, my dad was driving myself and my bridesmaids in my matron of honor's dad's four by four truck (thanks, Jen!) down a half closed interstate 74 into Champaign ,IL in the middle of the worst blizzard anyone had seen in that part of Illinois in years.  We thought we wouldn't even make it to the church...but we did!!!! They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck.....maybe a blizzard is the BEST luck.:)  I don't know, but we've made it 13 years...and that's saying something!:)  Guy sent me flowers today...very sweet!!  I love you, and I can't imagine my life without you !!!! It's been a wild ride, and I wouldn't have it any other way!  Happy anniversary.:)
