A Blessed Year


2006 was a personal best. Let’s do a photo round-up, shall we?


I am so thankful to live in a such a beautiful place with a wonderful husband and a truly amazing baby boy.


I am thankful for my loving, supportive family and friends. I am also thankful that starting next week, I will be living my life as a SAHM to little Wito.


But most importantly, I am thankful that despite my world turning upside down as a new mother, my fantasy football team STILL made it to the playoffs. Don’t even try to mess with THE DONGERS!

Happy New Year!

  12. Happy New Year Whoorl. Congrats on deciding to become a SAHM. It’s a tough gig, but a great one if you are up for it. Love the pictures, you did a great photo essay.

  13. congratulations! Thank you for sharing your year with us!

  14. i love the slideshow but i can’t help but notice a vip missin’ from your reel. jk

  15. From one SAHM to another – SpongeBob Squarepants is on TV fourteen times a day. I swear. But do not turn the television on, unless your need is dire. The temptation to see what’s been happening since you watched it in high school on The Young & The Restless is great.

    We listen to the radio, sing a lot of songs, read a lot of books, and go on a lot of walks. It’s super fun! Congratulations on your decision and good luck!!

    Happy New Year!

  16. Congrats on the SAHM news! Happy New Year!

    Happy new year, Whoorl! Here’s to 2007! (clink)

    I think you made a good decision! You’ll love staying at home with Anders.

  19. Woo hoo stay at home mom AND being in the FF playoffs what a way to start a new year. Congratulations.

  20. i LOVE you guys, you’re such a pretty family. anders will be lucky to have you around even more, though i’m sure he is getting mobbed with kisses everywhere he goes…little lovemagnet.
