I wanted to do a post on the last 6 months of 2008, but now is not the time. I will do one though, soon I hope.

Anyway, the holidays were great and the kids enjoyed themselves and all the presents they got. My son Joseph just turned 10 years old on January 9th. WOW, double digits. I can't believe it. Here's a little about what is going on with Joe:

He plays on the travel Soccer team and he's doing really well with it. We signed him up for the winter session and he plays every Saturday night. It's a crappy place, but he loves it and it's indoors. He also plays Basketball. Doesn't know how to play that well, but he likes playing and I like watching him run around like a nut. He got 2 baskets already. Very exciting. He is in the school Chorus and had his 1st concert on December 2nd. He also is in band and plays the Bass Clarinet. The instrument is bigger them him, but he's pretty good. All in all, Joseph is doing great.

As for LilyRose, well she doesn't do half as much as Joseph right now. We are having a hard time potty training. She does well for Anthony, but for me, no way. She just doesn't want to know from it. So I couldn't get her into pre-school her b/c you have to be trained. All the places that would take her wanted crazy money for 2 days @ 2 1/2 hours. Get lost. So, she has been going to our local Library and doing all these programs they have for her age group. She loves going to the craft class and I signed her up for a Toddler Tango class that is coming up soon. She talks up a storm and is a really happy kid. I feel bad that we will not be making the FCC-LI Chinese New Year party. Things are a little tight and we just can't swing it for this year. I hope that next year we will be able to go.

As for the rest of us, we are doing fine. Anthony has been very slow at work and I am thinking of going to work part time. He's not happy about it, but it's for the best. Things are tight and I hate living like this.

I hope you are all enjoying the New Year. I will post some pictures that I have of the kids. Also, to my friend Jenni who tagged me. I didn't forget I will post it soon.

OMG, they are getting so BIG! And Joseph sounds like he is going like crazy cakes. Lily will figure out the potty soon (I hope). Good luck with that! And good luck with the job market, life and everything else that is happening in your world. I think of you guys often and hope and pray that everything is working beautifully for you. In the mean time, know that you're always in our thoughts and we thank you for the quick up date and wonderful photos!
