Happy New Year! 2008 was quite a year!

2008 was filled with pregnancy and a brand new daughter! Really, that pretty well sums up the entire year. A few other highlights were: Lexie got her driver's license, Grandma Gracie turned 100, Katie started working as a Bridal Consultant, and Gracie was the most dramatic two-year-old we've ever had. Toss in school for everyone, and that was our year.

2009 looks like it'll be jam packed and filled with fun! We'll have two graduations, mine from college and Lexie from high school. The kids will all have birthdays and those are always fun. We'll take our annual long drive halfway across the country to see family and friends. And we'll just be busy being us.

I'm sure 2009 will have me running more mom-marathons. In the house. I think I put a lot of miles on without ever going anywhere. Sometimes I do get out, and drive all over the place never really going anywhere or getting anything done. I hope Lexie gets a car of her own in 2009 so I can quit driving the mom-taxi so much. She really keeps me running! I'm really hoping both little ones start sleeping through the night this year. I'd love to end the night time marathons! Oh, what I'd give for a good long night's sleep! 2009, bring it on!

I'm sure it'll be a really fun year because Libby will have so many firsts. Like today, she had her first vaccinations. Not fun. But the other firsts are fun and I'm looking forward to them all!

Happy 2009 to you all!

Happy New year to you too Mary! It should be another awesome one for you and your family. I hope we make it back to your neck of the woods again soon. Sea World was so much fun!!

Take a stop in my neck of the woods on your long drive!

Looks like we are all going to have a great new year!

Busy, busy--I think you're in for quite a few years of more of the same! Good thing you're used to it.

Happy New Year! See you at graduation. Walk.

Happy New Year! I hope you get to run less marathons too.

Kate said...

Happy new year! Here's to all the marathons you run--you should have a whole shelf of medals by now.

I know this is a little late for a Happy New Year, but Happy New Year! Excuse me, I'm a week late life. Ha. Here's wishing you a full night's sleep and a car for Lexie. :)
