One of the ornaments I put away is a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament from 2000 -- Father Time with Baby New Year. The whole world went a little berserk when that year rolled around -- and look at us now, ringing in 2010.
My how time flies! These ornaments are special because they were made by the boys. Yusef painted the ornament on the left in 1999 when he was 4 and Zack painted the one on the right in 2002, also age 4.
Now everything is put away. Tomorrow, I clean!
We had some very grateful parents send several very large bouquets of flowers to the front office. They just brought their elementary child back to school after a long absence due to heart surgery. I was able to bring home some of the blooms today and placed them around the living and dining room.

I'm hoping these branches will last for some time. The florist glued orchid blooms to them, which seems wasteful as orchids are so beautiful and should just be left to bloom as they are, but I love the branches. I want to add more natural elements to my decor in this New Year.
So far tomorrow's agenda includes shopping and cleaning. Zack has baseball practice in the morning and we will head over to the Friday Souk (which is like a big flea market), plus we are going out for Thai food with friends. Weather has been good so should be a wonderful day! I love the weekends. Wishing you all a day of joy! Peace & blessings, Tammy
