New years Eve has changed.

To day is New Years Eve 2005. My husband returned from hunting about 3 hours ago.
I put two kids down for a nap and left to get some shopping done. After buying two of the many gallons of milk we drink at my house. I picked up a couple of other items and checked out. At the check out counter I was asked several times, once by the checker, the second my the bag boy, what plans I had for the night.
This is where is hit me. My life has changed. Although I was never one to stay out late on New Years Eve, tonight I don't have any options. I will be home with my two wonderful girls and husband. We will put them to bed, I might have a glass of champagne, and then head off to bed myself.
That will be our night.

My first try at this...

Here I am...blogging for the first time...who came up with that word? Was it a word before it became a word? Hmm...
My name is Robin. I am currently 33 years old. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, and a tanta.
I am married to a wonderful man named Paul. We have been married for 5 years now. We met 7 years ago, lo and behold, on the internet...back when 14kbp was really fast! Ha ha!
I am now a mother to Mia age 2 1/2 and Sarah age nine months.
Mia joined our family soon after our 3 year anniversary. She was very much planned and expected. And has been a joy since the day we laid eyes on her.
Sarah joined us, nine months ago. She too was much anticipated and welcomed with the open arms of three family members.
I am lucky enough to stay at home with my girls. My husband works very hard so that I can watch the first steps, hear the first words, and witness the every day miracles that God has given us.

I am looking forward to sharing my life here. I hope that it will be read in years to come by my little girls. That they will see what life is about, and how much fun it was to be their mom.

I expect to share the everyday challenges, as Im sure many of us do, and the simple joys that I see and learn day by day.

So girls have taught me that dancing can be done anywhere...naked time is good (inside your own house), singing songs that you make up can make people laugh, and sweet prayers are cherished forever.
