Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009!

What a year....I have lived, learned, laughed, and most of all loved. Many events took place in the course of 12 months....

Charley was promoted to driver! YEAH!

I said goodbye and hello to 2 great Kindergarten classes

We had a fun filled trip to Mexico with great friends

I turned the big 3-0!

Lot's of home improvement...gutters, sprinklers, new tv, floors, carpet

And most of all...met and loved 2 precious souls!

My life will never be the same after this year. So, I am praying for a great 2009!! On your mark, get set, GO!!

I love my family!

I had the most amazing, relaxing weekend. I went back to East Texas to visit with my family and go to church. It was just what I needed, laughing, crying, and reminiscing. Church was very moving Sunday. I felt the hand of God as I sat in my pew. I'm thankful for such prayer warriors that love and care so much for me and Charley. We stayed at my aunt's house and had the best time...talking, talking and talking. On my way home yesterday, I decided to stop at my 2nd aunts house in Carthage. It was such a sweet visit. We sat on her couch and enjoyed conversation too. Then after feeling a tad guilty, I had to call my 3rd aunt on the way home and we got to visit a long time too. This was defiantly a weekend I'll always remember! I love you all so very much!

I will have to say though, there's no place like home....a fat, snuggly cat and the very best husband in the world waiting for me to arrive!

What a week so far! It's been crazy busy at the Scamperino house. Let's back track...
Saturday and Sunday started out by finishing up the tile work in the bathroom and starting the hardwoods in the kitchen. David and Cynda came over to help. We got about half way done and had to stop because we had tickets to see Jimmy Fallon at the Improv. I laughed so hard, he is amazing.

Monday night...Charley and I worked until 4:30 in the morning finishing the floors! I was exhausted and delirious, but it got done. Luckily, school was canceled Tuesday for a 'snow' day. I got to get a little rest, but was off to do more work on the house.

Wednesday carpets were installed, SO beautiful :) They are so bouncy and thick. I love coming home to the new smell. Then off to dinner with some friends in Terrell.

Thursday, Charley worked ALL day putting things back in order. Thank you sweetie! Then dinner with the Brawners at Olive Garden.

Friday...last day of school for 2008! Holiday parties and crazy kids! Although I love my job, it is time for a break. Then I came home and finished up a few last minute cleaning chores.

All in all, I didn't think we would get it all done in time, but we did!

Today, my cousin is getting married, Charley and my bro's are going to the last Cowboy game at TX stadium tonight....many memories created. Oh it's my big brother's birthday..Happy Birthday Jim!!!

Tomorrow and next week, the whole family will be here to celebrate Christmas. I can't wait!

Happy Birthday Momma

Today was my mom's birthday! God blessed me with THE best mother in the world. She is one of my best friends, and I love to share my life with her each day. If I ever need anything, she is immediately there for me. Some of my favorite memories with her are singing in the car to and from church, going very late to Nacogdoces to go shopping each Christmas, her braiding my hair each Friday before football games, and the chestnut tree song :)

I LOVE you momma!!!! Hope your day was filled with blessings

Happy Birthday Charley....again.....

All day I have been excited about Charley's bday present, the Duran Duran concert tonignt. Well, Charley got a phone call this afternoon from Nokia saying the concert had been canceled. Can you believe it??? The DAY of the concert, no show, no re-schedule, merely a ticket refund except for a 4.75 process fee per ticket. (ridiculous) So, off to get another present tonight. Charley got a PSP a couple games at Best Buy. I guess it will last longer than a couple of hours of music. Happy Birthday sweetie....again! hehe
