January Updates

I cannot believe we are almost at the end of the first month for 2012! We have been busy, busy with house stuff. We are CLOSING on March 7 - 6 weeks from today! We are so excited and cannot believe it's gone so fast. We are working on window treatments, rugs, and wall art... very hard to make these decisions when you haven't got the "creative eye"!

We also welcomed the newest Henderson on January 22nd. Melissa "Collins" Henderson joined us and is such a sweet baby. Kelly did great, and I am amazed at her calmness with three children. Ellie LOVED holding her by herself. No, we are not ready for the next one just yet!

We are still swimming once a week, and look forward to our Saturday routine. I will be ringing in another birthday - my golden one - on the 31st. They just aren't as exciting as they used to be!

Also, we had our annual ADPI Girls Weekend. To say this is always at the top of my list each year is an understatement. I love each and every one of these girls. We met freshman year at Auburn, and have made it a priority to get together at least once a year as a group. It's such a fun, exciting, and special time each year.
