Welcome to 2009!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful past two weeks! Jon and I have kept extremely busy – our visit to California was awesome and we had so much fun hanging out with the O’Brien side of the family. And…we even got a white Christmas! I loved getting to know my in-laws more. My little nephew, Josh, is the cutest little guy ever. He’s a little older than a year and learning to talk. So much fun! I realized out there how much I take for granted – it is such a HUGE blessing to have two amazing families who both love Christ.

After Christmas, we came home and picked up our little puppy, Kody. He’s such a good dog! He’s already learned to sit and we’re working on the housebreaking. And, our amazing breeder got him started on crate training so he’s sleeping through the night. He’s still a cuddle bug, but the more he warms up to us, the more hyper he gets. 🙂 We have a busy few months on our hands as we get through the puppy stage! He’s already bonded with Jon – when Jon left this morning for work, Kody wouldn’t leave his spot cuddling on Jon’s shoes.

This week, I start work on the second book in Maya’s series. I’m excited to see where it goes!

Here’s a few snapshots of our last two weeks:

Have a wonderful week back into your routines, everyone!

    Wow, what a cute puppy! Enjoy the cuddling stage because soon Kody will probably have a ton of energy 😉 When we first got our German Shepherd, she was cuddly at first, but now all she wants to do is play! I can’t wait to read your new book series.

    Looks like you had a nice time over the holidays!!! You looked like you had pretty good form on the ping pong table!!! Wish it would snow in NC…we’ve only gotten a dusting, but winter isn’t over yet, so ive still got hope!! I can’t wait for the new series…Fall 09 seems so far away haha 🙂 Take care and God Bless!

    Your puppy is so cute! =)

    I’ve been looking at your blog for some time now but never actually commented. I LOVE your books! My mom and I read them together and to this day still make comments about things that happened in them. You have a great sense of humor and I love your style of writing. =)

    Can’t wait for Cool Beans!
