Welcome 2011!

It sounds so weird to say 2011...seems like it was just 2001.  My how the years fly by!  We've had a fabulous start to the new year at the D household.  Friday night we got gussied up and went out to eat.  Stella was definitely the "belle of the ball" in her new dress that Ms. Patty gave her.

 We tried to get pics but Stella was not having it.  She's definitely "on the go" these days.  In fact she says "go go go" a LOT!  LOL

  We decided to eat Red Bowl.  Kyle and I were both craving Japanese but didn't want the hassle of driving far to get it, and Red Bowl is just as yummy, so we stayed local.  After dinner, Stella decided to entertain the other guests in the restaurant....they didn't seem to mind. ;)

Saturday, we decided (well, I guess I should say I decided b/c Kyle wasn't too keen on the first) to deep-clean the entire house after putting all the Christmas decorations away.  And when I say deep-clean...I mean DEEP-clean...scrubbing baseboards, cleaning out cabinets, etc.  I didn't think it would take all day but it did...and then it took most of Sunday as well.  However, our house probably hasn't been this clean since we moved in.  LOL Nah, but it's definitely been a while.  After we finished today, we decided to head to the mall to exchange some Christmas gifts that didn't fit.  Stella once again looked adorable in her outfit (when doesn't she?! :)) and stole the show when she decided she needed to "hold" my gift card.  I have a feeling her daddy might need 3 jobs to afford the two of us!  LOL
We've had a great start to 2011 and I know this is going to be another wonderful year for our family.  We are truly blessed in so many ways.

What a wonderful Bible verse to start off the new year...
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
~ Jeremiah 29:11
