2009

You know, I have this memory of being in the hallway at my mom and dad's house. I was a young girl, and it was New Year's Day. I remember being really sad that the old year was over. I was by myself, and I started crying.

I still have a hard time with the passage of time.

Last night, before Aryn went to bed, she started to cry. For the same reasons that I cried so many years ago. And it made me think...we really are, our mother's daughters.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAYN!

I'm glad to have such a super smart, creative sis-in-law! I hope you have a GREAT day and year and everything!

I think you started crying after each new year because you realize your b-day was coming up and you were going to be soooo much older in now time. Just teasing! Happy late birthday--good thing the R.S. puts out a calendar letting everyone know you're older.

I get sad with the passage of time too. It's sad to say goodbye to a year that provided so many memories. I love reading your blog. You always have really fun posts.
