Year in Review Part I

I've been thinking alot in the last couple of days about 2009 and what 2010 might bring and the fact that twenty-ten is upon is crazy.  It has always sounded so strange to say.

I've also thought alot about the blog and wondering what to do with it, what to change or to do it all?  Well, I think that last questions has already been answered by all the relatives that come here for a glimpse of the boys growing up, and a few laughs from my views on life.  Although I've been alittle curious about keeping the name M.E. {Mommy Extraordinaire} because there is not much extraordinary about me and there are so many other moms that surpass me on many, many levels.  It was just a fun play on words last January.  And I had had grand hopes of doing all these cool, fun and creativity things with my boys as a stay-at-home, that really didn't happen like I thought.  But does anything turn out like we thougth. Rarely.
So I'm going into 2010 with an open mind, few expectations and will be focusing on the boys and new baby.  It's going to be crazy and fun that's for sure.

So here on the last day of 2009, I'd like to recap the year, a virtual stroll down M.E. Memory Lane.
