Remember this post I called "Yesterday"? Well I had ulterior motives. I wanted each of you to say in your own words what you are PROUD of and what you feel warrants a HIGH FIVE in 2009.. Here is what a few Bloggy Pack members said...
**Note I did not include all the links to blogs because I did not have time..if you would like to see the Blogs click on the Tall Mom Post and comments to find these Bloggers.
