Happy Birthday Roman!
Once upon a time there was a baby born. His mom and dad were thrilled to be parents. He was so cute and innocent and the world was never going to be the same again. He was named Roman, and he will now be 2 on January 13th. He has definitely made the world a better place and our lives have been touched by this angel that has been given to us. Though the past two years has brought many 'ups and downs' of child rearing, we would not change anything. When Roman smiles the world stands still and our hearts our filled. We love you Roman and wish you the best birthday ever and may this next year be even better than the last. We had a wonderful party for him this Saturday and he had an awesome day. He is enjoying all his new toys and looking snazzy in his new clothes. It was so nice that Rick's mom and step dad were able to come down and enjoy Roman on his birthday. Roman is taken' back by Grandpa and they are like two peas in a pod. Grandma is a little jealous of the attention that Grandpa is getting but Roman did give her a kiss and say thank you after she gave him his gifts. After the party, Roman took a long, needed nap while Grandma and Mommy went shopping. We all then went to dinner and ate pizza and watched football. GO COWBOYS!!!
The past month has been filled with adventures as always. Grandma and Grandpa Moyers (Rick's mom and step dad) came down in early December to celebrate Christmas with us. We then had a wonderful Christmas with my brother and his family. They were here visiting for a week and Roman had a blast with his cousin Turner. They were best buds and Turner was able to get him out of his 'bad mood' even when Mommy couldn't. Thank God for wonderful family. We wished we lived closer. We were able to go out to dinner with just the adults while my niece Rylee stayed home with the other kids. It was nice to get away and I am sure the kids had fun with 'no adults' in the house. We also went bowling and Roman did pretty well (never mind that he had the bumpers up and someone else threw half his balls). We miss you guys and can't wait to see you all again.
We had a very low key New Year's. We just stayed home...Roman in bed by 8...Chinese take out...bed by 11:00...woke for midnight...kissed quickly...sweet dreams. We have both started running. The weather has been FREEZING but we are determined to get out there and run. We have both been enjoying it and are looking forward to a little warmer weather.
We wish you all a Happy 2010! Make sure to check out our photos on the right side of this blog. There are some good ones (as usual:)) I will leave you with this:
“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
