Such A Good Year

There are less than 2 hours left of 2006, and while I look forward to what 2007 may bring, it’ll be hard to top 2006.
Lee, Cami and I have enjoyed this weekend – just hanging out together, getting a few things done around the house, and actually unpacking suitcases instead of packing them.
It was a great Christmas, despite our whirlwind schedule. Santa Claus visited our house on the Saturday before Christmas – we’d sent him a note to let him know we’d be out of town on Christmas Day, so he put us on his early bird list. Camille seemed to enjoy her gifts, especially the T-shirt that says, “Peeing your pants is the coolest!” That Santa. He’s so funny.
Camille has been such a good girl that Santa actually visited her twice. Christmas morning, he left even more presents for her at Grammie’s house. In fact, Cami got more and mroe presents every where we went. The day after Christmas, she woke up a looked around, and I could almost read her thoughts. “Where are the shiny packages? Every morning I get shiny packages!”
One of my favorite gifts is this tutu, which can turn any outfit into a ballerina costume.
Camille was a rock star, tolerated all the driving remarkably well, and was in a good mood most of the day. There were a couple of times though, when I think she was a little overwhelmed by all the new faces. When I’d reach for her, she’d wrap her arms around my neck and bury her head against my shoulder, as if to say, “You’re someone I know!” And it made me feel good.
To top off the holiday, we got to watch UGA stage a fantastic comeback to win their bowl game yesterday. Of course, Camille was dressed for the occassion.
Whatever could she be smiling about?
Her sweet Daddy, of course!
