Pictorial Review of 2007

First let me say Happy New Year to my small audience. I hope all your hopes and dreams become realities for you this year. I've been musing over what to write as the first blog of 2008. It has taken more than three days, and I'm still without anything exciting or profound to write about. Below are a few pictures for 2007 --- A review of the good times one might say. This is me in my new mustang purchased the end of January. The 8 year old Lunina left me stranded at school one day and that was the end of it. I love these new wheels. :)I visited Amarillo and played with Ben and Abby for several days the first of March. They are a true joy in my life. I wish I could be closer to spoil them more, but it is probably just as well that I'm far away and only visit on occasion.

The end of March is when the daughters and I got together in Fort Worth (Roanoke really) for *girls weekend.* We had fun visiting, getting pedicures, having our pictures taken, going to the zoo.
Here are my parents, sisters and me as we celebrated Mother and Daddy's Sixtieth Wedding Anniversary in April. What fun we had planning them a party and then carrying it out.
When I got home from the "Girls Weekend" I discovered my house had been sold and Robert and I were homeless for a few months.. Here is the house we bought in May -- although when we bought it, it was still being framed.
June came and a cruise with Billie and Lydell was just what the doctor ordered, so to speak. We always have a great time with them.
In July, Amy and Dave brought Abby and Benjamin for a visit. Here are Abby and I playing on the beach. It rained the entire week they were here, but Abby and I were determined to go to the beach and a lot of rain didn't dampen our spirits much. I was back in Amarillo for Abby's first day of pre-school 4 in late August. In September we journeyed to Jamaica for Matt's wedding. A location wedding has a lot to be said for it. I was sceptical at first, but really it was beautiful. I would even recommend it to those wanting a small private affair. After the trip to Jamaica Robert was busy with the Rice Festival Parade. Here he is on the float that ends the parade. As parade chairman he was glad to see October over, but is already gearing up for the *bigger/better* parade in 2008.Robert, Donna and Paul with Carrie on his lap zone after Thanksgiving dinner and too much football. We had a great time with all three girls and theirs here. Donna's cats even had a room of there own --- it may have just been a garage, but they seemed to enjoy it okay.2007 ended in Amarillo. We had Christmas on the 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 27. It was wonderful to get to be home with family and very hard to choose just one picture, but presents under the tree and little folks ready to tear into them was the best part of a lot of fun!
