The Older I Get, The Faster It Goes

TIME....the older I get, the faster it goes. Looking back over 2009 the past few days, I just cant believe another year has come and gone. 2009 was a good year for the Stafford family. Don't get me wrong, we had a few bumps in our road, but when it was all said and done, we had a blessed year. The year started with the birth of Mason, Jan. 8, a healthy, beautiful baby boy. Shortly after Mason was born, J started a new job that he loves and it has been such a blessing that I am able to stay home with our kids. In this economy you are blessed to have a job, much less one that you love.



In April, we had our boat parked outside of our garage and it caught on fire in the middle of the night and did some damage to our house. This could have been tragic but I am thankful the Lord had his hand upon my home and family that night.

In July, J and I happily celebrated 11 years of marriage.



In September we were able to take a vacation with some family and friends.



And we just finished up the year with an awesome holiday season. I am so thankful for the goodness of God upon my family this year and looking forward to a great year in 2010! God Bless & Happy New Year!!!

Ginormous windows cont.






So here is the finished product. I think it turned out pretty well.....

Ginormous Windows






Last night we tackled the ginormous wall of windows in our living room. I wanted to put up a cornice board and while waiting on J to build it I found some at none other than Goodwill. They were about 2 ft. short for our over 13 ft window so J had to piece them together.
