Clean Slate

Happy 2009!

Last year one of my resolutions was to stop speeding. I think it was in January (yep, the same month that I made the resolution) that I got pulled over for speeding. When I told the cop I was really sorry and that actually one of my New Years resolutions was to go the speed limit he handed me back my license and said "You suck at your New Years resolution."

Needless to say, I didn't make any resolutions this year because I didn't want to set myself up for failure.

New Years Eve, we have a tradition of going to the Swenson household. Dave & Chelsey are such great hosts and we LOVE every chance we get to spend with them & their kids. This year, Haley & Mitch were able to join us and it was so great to see them!


Me, Chels & Ashton (Haley, where are you?)


Dave, Tannon & Bode (the Swenson dog)

Haley & Mitch brought over their 8 week old Shih-tzu, Alex. He was so freakin' cute and smells so good! I love EVERYTHING about a new puppy.



Delicious dessert





After midnight, we headed over to Missy & Chris's and crashed there.


Me & Lou


We may or may not have played guitar hero ALL day in our pajamas.


World tour style


I have no words.


Cutest baby ever.

Happy New Years, everyone!

Hey McCall!! I haven't talked to you in forever! Sorry I blog stalked you...but I saw your link on Shaun & Jill's site (they used to be my neighbors). We used to be friends in the 6th grade at Burton Elementary (Tiffany Barnes). You're still just as gorgeous as I remember! I hope you and your family are doing well. Your niece is adorable!! I hope you don't mind if I check in once in awhile and see what you're up to :o). I have a blog too www.tntfam.blogspot.com.

Happy New Year!! It looks like you had a fun time at Chelsey and Dave's. And I can't believe that I am married to such a rock star with killer moves (I'm sure everyone is jealous). Love ya Cally.

Chelsey & Dave said...

I didn't know you have a speeding issue. Your car must be faster than the 'ol rodeo. ..no speeding in that thing;)

Super fun night/tradition! Hope you're in town next year!!!

(it's hilarious that X's chubby hand is grabbing a rice krispy bar in that pic..and it prob wasn't his first.)

You look darling as always. So I have a random question. I remember a yummy monkey bread we'd make at the Douglas house street. Do you have that recipe?
