It's hard to believe that 2010 is just around the corner. In high school, we were given a writing assignment about where we saw ourselves in 15 years and I must say, the place I am right now is not where I saw myself being. I have always wanted to be a wife and mother, since I was a little girl. That was my dream and it was what I wrote about in that assignment. But right now, I am going through a divorce and fighting for custody of my children. I had a feeling at the beginning of this year, that 2009 would be a much better year for me. We were finally getting back to normal after the death of my daddy and I felt like my life was getting back on track. But, here I am...32 years old and going through a divorce. I do have peace in my decision and I am fearful, sad, and a little excited about my future. I know that's crazy, but it's how I feel. I know this is a mountain I have to cross to finally find my happiness. The holidays were strange, just celebrating with me and my babies. We had a great Christmas. God really blessed me and I was able to provide a wonderful Christmas for them. I spent most of the day watching them play with their toys and thinking just how blessed I am in the midst of my circumstances. I am blessed! Even though, I haven't fulfilled all of my writing assignment of where I saw my self, I have fulfilled the most important part. I am a mommy, a good mommy, to two wonderful children.

Carley performed at Breakfast with Santa with her dance group with Grace School of Dance. They did such a beautiful job. She really loves her dance teacher, Ms. Jessica. They did numbers from the Nutcracker and Carley was in the Candy Cane group. I love to watch her dance. It makes me feel all warm inside that she enjoys dance as much as I do. Here are a few pics from her performance:

I can't post without sharing some of my scrappy projects I made this time for Christmas gifts. It's been awhile since I've had the time or the energy to scrapbook. It made me feel so much better creating again! Enjoy!

I hope you all had a very, Merry Christmas and I wish you all a very, Happy New Year!
