Here are some random pictures of the last day of 2008 and the first day of 2009.
Working on the take-down.
Isaiah gets the upper hand, next to the dog, again.
Miriam and Maia (the baby doll) all set-up for a reading session on the couch.
Isaiah kicking back on the kids lofty reading area. (in a space above our pantry, oven and broom closet - between the kitchen and living room, for those who haven't been to our house and seen it)
Our crazy, cute girl. It was actually pretty dark in the room - being a very stormy and windy day - and she was having fun shining her flashlight around, especially on the dog for some reason.
Miriam's webkinz all lined up on the edge of the reading area. I just thought this was so cute I had to include it.
Miriam on the reading area, about to climb down the white post. (I actually have pictures of her doing that from another day, perhaps I will post some tomorrow.)
Our New Year's day was relaxing and uneventful, other then the roaring wind and rain outside all day long. I was thankful to be feeling better today as I was quite ill yesterday. One important thing we did today was to start our 'reading the Bible in a year' as a family. I am very excited that we are doing this.
In addition, I have decided to follow a plan to read the entire Bible in 90 days. I have started a second blog to record thoughts and experiences related to my Bible reading. You can view that blog here: http://readingthruthebible.blogspot.com/ if you are interested.
May the Lord richly bless you as we embark on this new year!
Bring on 2009!
