It's 2010!

Happy New Year everyone! Wow, so amazing how quickly 10 years can go by.. yeah we hear those words all the time, but as I get older I now know why-they're true! I so remember celebrating the year 2000 as it came in.. Alec was 6, Abbi was 5 and Kyra 2. They were all so little! Wow.. again!

We've gone through so many changes, wonderful changes, so I'm grateful for those 10 years.

This year we celebrated the new year with friends up in Tennessee, it was a good time. Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so no pictures of that.

I do have a picture of this New Year tradition though:

Burning the holiday tree.

Abbi Pyro Traaseth helping..

So yes we had a nice cozy room while the tree burned.. but it didn't quite compare to this heat... some of you may remember this:

The Bemidji Burn!

And Abbi trying to get it to burn more.. gotta give a girl credit

Hope everyone is having a cozy happy new year!
