Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from the Slauenwhite Family!
It is hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone already!! I know for our family, we pulled out the Christmas tree from our attic back on November 1st, and so the preparations began! All so that we could relax in December, and enjoy the wonderful season..... that was the plan! But we all know that things rarely go according to plan!

Instead of December being filled with glorious relaxation and anticipation, it was draped in colds, flus and more! Despite all of that, we did enjoy several Christmas parties, and special times with friends - and of course we were very blessed to be able to spend Christmas with our families in Halifax! Family is a treasure! We were so very spoiled during our trip home. So much love was lavished on us. We are grateful for wonderful family and friends.

In the news department, Braeya will be turning ONE on January 23rd! Where has the time gone? Hard to believe that this time last year, I could hardly reach my toes, or put on my own boots! What a blessing she has been to our family. Each time we look at her, we are reminded of the faithfulness of God! Her eyes sparkle with life, and we are constantly reminded of what is truly important in life.

She is just about walking! She has taken random "one or two steps" on her own - so one of these days, she will be off and away!

She is a wonderful sleeper, but needs lots of work in the eating department! Baby food is not her love in life that's for sure!

When she wakes up in the morning, and we bring her out of her room, all she does is "ooohh, ooohhh, oooh, wowwww!" Everything around her excites her - whether it is the fan, a light fixture, or water running!

She moves from the moment she wakes up until the moment she is sleeping again - never a dull moment with this girl!

In other news, my sister and her family moved to Burlington yesterday! Sad for all the friends and family they had to leave in Halifax, but very exciting for us, as we will now be just about 3 hours away from each other! Can't wait for many visits, dinners, and excursions!

We trust that you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Drop us a note to let us know how you are!

With anticipation for the wonderful year ahead,

Shaun, Michelle & Braeya
