Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

Happy 2009 everybody! May you all find many blessings in the New Year!

Believe it or not, I did not get any pictures at Christmas! I'm so disappointed in myself, but what am I going to do now. Here's the breakdown though:

  • Tuesday, December 23 - We went to Canton for the annual Christmas Eve's Eve/Brunswick Stew party at Cliff's cousin Mary's house. All of Cliff's extended family (and I"m talking 5th and 5th cousins here) comes into town every year for this shindig. Tons of fun!
  • Wednesday, December 24 - I was off work all day but that didn't stop me from working on things around my house. That night we went back to Canton for church with Jim Bob & Laura and then over to Cushion's (Cliff's grandmother for those of you who don't know) house for supper. Then out to the Dowdles for their annual Christmas Eve visit.
  • Thursday, December 25 - Yay for Christmas Day! We woke up about 6:30 am to open our presents and headed back to Canton at 8. Opened presents with Cliff's family, ate breakfast at Cushion's, visited with the Mosbys, back to Cushions for lunch and family gift time. We then came back to Jackson to see Mo for a bit (and let me get a nap) and then went back Canton for Dowdle Family Christmas that night. A very fun tradition that we don't miss (unless we are out of town).
  • Friday, December 26 - Again I am off of work (woo hoo!) and we go back to Canton for Agnew Family Christmas at Alan & Tom's house. Very fun! I especially like it because that's one of the only Dirty Santa games I enjoy. And they play dirty...
  • Saturday, December 27 - Flynn Family Christmas AT MY HOUSE! My parents and sister came to town that afternoon, and then the rest of the family came on that night. It was great to have everybody over!
Whew! What a Christmas! I wouldn't have traded it for the world and we were especially blessed to have all of our family and friends so close. Here's to 2009!

The Wests come to town!

Good cousins Allie, Chad & Pete came for a visit the weekend before Christmas. It was great to see them! Mo and Pete had a fantastic time playing; Mo was so worn out he slept for 2 days! Thanks for coming to visit, y'all!

About time for bed

All snuggled up with the pups

The Harringtons are Home!

Welcome back to Jackson, Del & Jes! The first weekend in December, I trekked down to the great city of Mobile to help Del pack. We had a great fun and I'm so glad they have come back home!

"Where's Delly-welly?" "There she is!!"
Packing with Del in Mobile is the most fun experience!
Happy Birthday Del!

Thanksgiving in Tupelo

Cliff and I trekked to Tupelo to spend the weekend with my parents, sister, her hubby and his parents. Of course there was WAY to much food and I enjoyed every minute of it! So did Mo and his Papa Bill...

The End of 2008... The Beginning of 2009

All I can say is "Whew!" I cannot believe that 2008 is already over and 2009 is beginning. Cliff, Mo and I hope that all of you had a very Merry Christmas. We definitely did! We were so blessed with a family and friend filled Christmas that I was worn out by the end of it. I have some individual posts to catch you up on the Agnews!

Cliff, Mo and I wish you all the best for 2009! Happy New Year!
