See Ya Next Year!

I'm going to sign off for a while to focus on celebrating the wonder of the Savior's birth with my family. Before I go, here's a summary of the year at our house:
2007 by the Numbers
7 states driven to (or through) on several trips to visit family and the beach
4 Build-A-Bears M. now owns, lovingly caring for each of them
56 (minimum) diapers per week before A. was potty trained
28 diapers per week after A. was potty trained
100 approx. milk gallons consumed
322 est. hours my Sweetie spent in Atlanta traffic (and he works from home 2 days per week!)
20 books on CD he listened to while in the car
11 weeks spent coping with a 2-year-old in a cast after A. broke his leg in February
90 unforgettable minutes it took for the pain to subside after S. was stung by a stingray on his 13th birthday - minor surgery removed the barb embedded in his big toe and he remains a lover of marine animals
3 grades learning in our home school this year, 7th, 5th, and 3rd
?thousands? of legos scattered all over our house!
5 (and counting) ways C. can jump off a swing (any
guesses who will have the next broken bone...?)
15 (and counting) understandable (to us, anyway) words
K. can speak - our favorite is "pitt-tee" (pretty)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
"Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." John 1:29

That is a great picture!

Wow, those are big numbers and you must be a very busy mom.

Hope you have a great Christmas!

Loving that shot of your kids. Cute way to "sign off". I'll see you in 2008...maybe a year with less diapers? ha ha!

Merry Christmas to you too. Have a wonderful time with your family. It has been so fun to meet you in the blog world.

It was fun to read your year in numbers. :)

You may be "signing off", but we're practically neighbors! I'll see you Sunday (Lord willing)! Enjoy your special family Christmas together.
