Happy New Year!!

Mrs. Butterworth, is that you?

I hope that all of you had a blessed Christmas! We had a wonderful Christmas this year with all of our family. Watching the kids opening gifts and getting excited for Santa to come was the best. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I have to admit that even though I was ready for it to be done, it was depressing taking all the decorations down.

Well, they say that a picture can tell a thousand words. I have two to share along with the story. Many of you may not know this but Scott proposed to me last fall and we're planning a Spring 2009 wedding. Super exciting!! Anyway, Scott's older brother was engaged about a month after we were. His fiance, Julie is pictured on the right.

Julie and I have been like sisters to begin with and we both LOVE our wine. So we sat down to these beautiful wine boxes under the Christmas tree at our Christmas party and Julie says, "it's boose!". We opened our boxes slowly and discovered a bottle of Mrs. Butterworth's syrup!

I lost myself and could not stop laughing. What's so funny? Julie and I will BE Mrs. Butterworth!! I guess that means we'll be thick and rich, right? One thing is for sure: we may never be rich with money but we are rich in friends and family! That's all that matters!
