1. A hair clip from Kinder Klothes. I love getting mair clips for my daughters hair.

2. Another hair clip from KinderKlothes. For some reason I got a lot of multiple items in my box.

4. A big hair bow from Polka Tot Boutique. Its a very nice bow, but sadly too big for my DD and her fine hair :( But we will give it a great home!

5. A catnip toy from Colorado Catnip toys. We dont have any cats, so I will have to find a good home for this one too.

6 & 7 is bow tie pasta from The little Love bug. This is another duplicate, but thats ok. Im putting this up for my daughter. Anytime I get felt food I put it in a box to give to her next year. I think she will appriciate it more then.

2008 review

A lot has happened in 2008. Overall I would say it was a good year. Even though there were a few bumps in the road we got over them and learned from them. I think one of the best things that came out of 2008 was, I learned a lot about myself. Im a lot stronger than I give myself credit for. I have grown so much in my faith and even go to church by myself if I have to, just to go! Ive grown as a mom and I think I do a pretty good job too. Ive even become a little more patient too, and learned to pick and choose my battles. Ive even grown as a wife too, and choose my battles there

Ive learned a lot about the people in my life. I look forward to learning even more in 2009. Im sure it will be a good year with lots more bumps and learning experiences but Ive got great friends I can count on though.

Thanks for helping me through 2008...Heres to a new year and a fresh start.
