#26: Read 15 Books (10/15)

After hearing many rave reviews about this trilogy, I've been wanting to read them for a while. I received the books from my sweet hubby for Christmas this year and read the first one, The Hunger Games, last week. LOVED it! I'm on to the second one now and it's equally good. Even though these books are geared for adolescents, I'd say they are great books for anyone!

#37: Create & Complete our "Family Book - 2008"

Wahoo! I finally finished our family scrapbook for 2008!! I really want this to be our family scrapbook and not just a showcase for Little Man. I think I made a nice balance - I'm quite happy with it. Here's one of my favorite pages - I'm definitely a simple scrapper. 

I'm choosing to just celebrate this small victory and not think about how I still have 2009 & 2010 to go, not to mention finishing up Little Man's baby book & any subsequent scrapbooks I might want to do for him. Let's just focus on the positive! :)

#96:Have a new experience with our families (1/2)

On Christmas Eve, my in-laws and nephews went with us to our church's family-friendly Christmas Eve Service. Christmas Eve Services have always been a special part of the Christmas celebration to me, but my husband's family always ate together and opened presents on Christmas Eve. This year we combined the two by eating in the afternoon, attending the 5:30 service, then coming back to open presents. A great compromise!

#26: Read 15 Books (9/15)

After months of being on the library waiting list, it was finally my turn to pick up the latest Nicholas Sparks book, Safe Haven. It was pretty typical Nicholas Sparks book, but I liked (I'm a sucker for my home-state author).  I must say, that I am just loving the library lately - definitely saved me lots of money in the last few months!

#26: Read 15 Books (8/15)

I like Jodi Picoult novels, but Handle with Care was not one of my favorites.  It did bring up some interesting things to think about as far as "wrongful birth" goes, but it had too much going on in one book. It dragged on to me and I hated the ending. Oh well!

#81: Visit the Children's Museum (1/5)

Little Man & I went to the Children's Museum back in December on a Friday after we had been stuck inside for a few days following some winter weather. We were desperate to get out of the house & had such a great time! I was shocked that so few people were there on a Friday, but pleasantly surprised. Tons of fun!

I was leaning toward not renewing our membership, but now I'm reconsidering...
