out with the old . . .

And let's celebrate the new!! Happy 2011! :)

Last night was a sweet night. I put Sawyer to bed not long after his mommy & daddy left, but he woke up with a bad dream just before midnight, and the typical putting the pacifier back in his mouth and rubbing his back didn't help. He was rather wet, so I changed his diaper and then rocked him back to sleep. And that's how we ushered in 2011; Sawyer's little head nestled in the crook of my neck, snuggling in and holding me tight. I prayed over him and for his parents and my family ... it was a sweet hour of prayer.

Today's been a quiet and happy day. Todd and I have just lounged about -- other than when Todd scattered corn for the deer, I don't think either of us have stepped outside today! I put white beans and a ham hock in the crock pot this morning and we'll have those with cornbread for dinner. The Crimson Tide won their bowl game today -- YAY! I've read, done a little laundry, a little cleaning, a little reading, and a little cooking. Todd's feeling a little better, but still not quite a hundred percent. Tomorrow, hopefully.

I'm looking forward to the challenges and blessings that 2011 will bring!

Oh...how sweet to be cuddling Sawyer at midnight on New Year's Eve. Your relaxing day today sounds so nice, too.

What a perfect way to spend the end of one year and the beginning of another. We spent ours at work, Scott was on 7-3, and I was on 3-11. He picked me up from work, and promptly went to bed, since he had to get up to work the next day. This is our usual new years tradition. LOL
