I'm with ya, 2007 was a good year, but I am really feeling like 2008 is a clean slate, fresh start. Maybe I will realize I have the whole year, rather than I have to be closer to God, 20 pounds thinner, a better wife/mother.... in 2 weeks. :) By the way, love the link to the red plate. We have one of those and mostly use it for Daddy, as we will get the plate out, Isabella colors pictures for him, last time we decorated some and she made a crown for him (oh yes, the big green crown was my idea because he CAN'T say no to her and I get a great kick out of those pictures :) I need to start doing the "Special Day" dinners for my girls as well.
