Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. We had a New Years Eve brunch yesterday for our staff. It was a really nice get together. It was nice to spend some time together with our staff where work was not really involved. However, Frontier being what it is, it turned into work before the end of the brunch. LOL!

Today we had a picnic at the park. The weather is absolutely gorgeous here! I am more than a little sad to go back to the cold weather and snow next week. Its hard to believe that we have been here 3 weeks and we are going back to WV next week. This has been one of the best holiday seasons ever. Clinton has taken the entire month off. We did nothing but spend quality family time together. I dont think we have spent this much time together since Aidan was born. Clinton has really gotten a chance to slow down and bond with his son. It has been the sweetest and most touching thing to watch. It makes it all the harder to leave. However ,Clinton is leaving later this month and wont be back to California until late March . So I am off to West Virginia and will start school in a couple of weeks. We will be meeting up at the end of March during my Spring break and then Aidan and I will be spending the summer in San Diego. We are possibly going to Australia in July with Clinton as he has work to do there.

I am really excited about getting back into graduate school but really nervous about leaving Aidan in daycare. We have a meeting with the director of the daycare the day after we get back. Aidan will then be in the classroom for a couple of hours while I am there. The next day he will go for a couple of hours by himself. If all works out he will begin the day I start class. I just hope it is a good match and Aidan enjoys it there. The director wants him to be there the entire day. This means I will drop him off at 8:30 and he will be there until 5:30. I remember when I was a teacher and the YMCA had after school care at our school. I would always feel sorry for the kids who were still there at 5:00 when I would leave school . I would just think to myself "what a long day - especially for the little ones". Now I am finding myself doing the same thing. I am glad it is just for 1 day a week.

I am off to find some type of cabbage to cook for dinner. That is what my mom says you are supposed to do on New Years day. Supposedly the more cabbage you eat the more wealth you will have during the year. I think I will go with sauerkraut.

Here are some pics from our New Years.....

Getting ready for the brunch....
Aidan and his buddy Andrew the Great. He is Aidans fav!
This is something new Aidan does. When he asks for something he will put both hands to his cheek and say "Pleeeaaase" with an angelic look on his face. I think that kid definitely has a career in acting in his future. He cracks me up.

Playing at the park today with daddy.

I love this picture of Aidan. I love the look of pure joy on his face! His dad was making him laugh.

Look at that beautiful sky!!!!! It was in the low 70's today. Can we say perrrfect!
