Happy New Year 2009!!

Happy New Year!! I can't believe that it is 2009! That means that I graduated high school 10 yeas ago! I'm OLD. I want to wish everyone Health, Wealth, and Prosperity which I believe is a lot to ask for in this economy. I thank the Lord every day that my Husband works in the medical industry, there are always going to be ill people in the world....sad, but true.

This year, just like last we celebrated New Years Eve with the Gardner Family. We celebrated earlier in the evening and were tucked in bed when the clock struck midnight. The Big kids celebrated with steamed Alaskan crab legs, baked potatoes, and champagne. The Little kids sang "happy new year to you" and blew out candles on Happy New Year cookies.

Christmas Day!

SANTA!!! Christmas through a 2 and 3 year old eyes is the best! All there wishes were fufilled and everyone was Happy. I am a little upset because I forgot all about the digital camera because we had the camcorder running all morning. No Christmas morning pictures so sad. Skyler received her beloved jewelery box and Paige her Little Einstein rocket ship and friends. After much fun with new toys we packed up and headed for Grand Dad and Grandma Loveys house in Akron, Ohio. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the family time.

Christmas Eve 2008!

This year Christmas started off with a Sup Pump deciding that it was X-Mas eve and wanted to make the Holiday one to remember. O' to the joys of home ownership. Andy and Paige stayed home with Mr. Rooter the Plumber while Skyler and I enjoyed a Christmas Eve Service at Church. Skyler was very excited to attend BIG Girl Church which she told me was not as fun as Church School.

After the Sup Pump was wrapped neatly with and expensive bow we all made our way to Aunt Shell and Uncle Kevins house. Richelle is Andys Cousin and Kevin is her Husband. We were thankful for a yummy home made dinner which also included the company of Uncle Bill, Aunt Dana, Uncle Bob and Aunt Nancy. A Big WYLIE Christmas Dinner! After dinner we all sang Christmas Carols around the dining room table which was led by the only kiddos, Skyler and Paige.

Fast Forward December 2008!

Andy and I have been married for almost 5 years!! Skyler is almost 3 1/2 and Paige almost 2 1/2. We have been blessed in so many ways starting with the Love of our marriage to the Health of our girls and the security thus far of Andys job.

Fishers, Indiana has turned out to be an amazing place to raise a family and we have met many great friends along the way. The Girls are true Hoosiers and we wouldn't want it any other way.

The Winter brings snow, spring exciting times at the park, summer lots of swimming at the neighborhood pool and in the fall the leaves turn and Colts football begins!

The past two years we have taken a mini 4 day vacation to Disney World and I would like to start this blog off with some of the most adorable pictures ever. The Girls loved getting up close and personal with all the characters. They enjoyed most of the rides too, but mainly they like the giving and receiving of hugs from all their "friends"!!

In the beginning....

Andy and I met on July 4th 2002 in Huntington Beach, CA. We were engaged on September 13th 2003 and married on February 14th 2004 in Santa Barbara, CA. We moved to Fishers, Indiana on January 1st 2005 and I gave birth to our 1st daughter Skyler Wylie Long on June 18th 2005 and to our 2nd daughter Paige Rebecca Long on July 25th 2006.
