Henry and my sweet Mamaw
Cooper and Henry...Go State!
Sweet Mamaw and Trey
several of my cousins!
putting together more fun puzzles!
While I'm sad to see 2009 come to an end, it's exciting to anticipate the new year. I'm unsure whether or not I'll be making resolutions for the new year. I'll just have to get back to you on that...
On a sad note, I want to ask that you pray for the family members of victims who lost their lives at the horrific apartment fire that occurred here in Starkville yesterday morning. 9 lives were lost. Among those who died were 2 children who attended the school where I work. I didn't know any of victims, but my heart is broken by it all. This story has actually made national news. It really is just so so sad.
I hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas and here's to hoping for a fun New Year for you!
P.S. I have just changed the settings on my blog so that no anonymous comments are allowed. I was starting to get comments that were junk or even in another language. I'm just not interested in that, folks. Please continue commenting, only now it may take one extra step for you to do so...thank you much and keep the comments coming!

4So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ[a] the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
15When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Now, on to today's post topic...
I rent a duplex, and Mandy lives upstairs from me. We moved in this house at the same time in 2006, but we'd never met. We became instant friends. We are so very different, but I think it only makes our friendship more fun!
B&B. Mandy knows exactly what that means.
Entertainer. "She can sing. She can act. She can dance. And only one other person in the world can do that and THAT is Barbra Streisand".
Great gift giver!
Jelly bellies. (Be sure to save the watermelon and buttered popcorn for me!)
Kids...and their names are "Maizey" and "Bear"
Lists. She makes more to-do lists than anybody I know.
Michigan...her home state.
Neighbor/roommate...whatever you want to call it.
Quesadilla lover. We love Tipico!
Red VW Bug.
Smart. Waaaaay smarter than me.
Understanding. She totally gets me.
Vent. We are good at doing this to each other. What are friends for?
Years old: 29!
Zzzzz. This girl enjoys sleeping as much as I do!

I'm sure you can tell who's who here... we have Kristen in the pink, who probably spent her time telling us what to do; me being not-so-flexible in the blue; my pretty mom, who's probably hating every second of the "exercise"; and Heather who spent her time just climbing on top of us.
