Goodbye 2008. Hello 2009.

Oh, what a year it has been. Will that be my end of the year mantra each and every year?

Oh, I hope so.

Because there is really no way I could sum up the year in words in just one post, I went back and picked out some of the highlights of our year along with some of my favorite photos I've posted.

January: I made a list of eight in '08, and I'm not quite sure how well I did on them. We started the long process of potty training H. I missed my mom. I survived T's 9th birthday party.

T's 9th birthday. Jan 2008

February: The Wii joined our family. We mourned the loss, yet celebrated the life of grandma B. H continued to make me smile with his dancing moves.

H, 21 months. Jan 2008.

March: Day 84 came quickly. M turned 7. H moved out of the crib. I turned 26.

M and her grin. March 2008.

April: I wrote to Cub Foods. We surprised Aunt Laurie. H turned two. J and I celebrated four years. I learned to let go a little more.

M and that wig. March 2008.

May: Mothers Day made me reflect. I announced that there was a baby on the way. I implemented a new rule when eating fast food.

Sunkissed cheeks. May 2008.

June: The last day of school. The day H got into the baby powder. I reflected on what someday will be. Our deck was completed.

T, at the cabin. June 2008.

July: I encouraged you to join us in Remembering Nan's Battle. Realized I am enough. Saw baby beep-beep for the first time. J turned 35.

My busy boy, H, at the cabin. June 2008.

August: Went to the cabin and then needed a vacation to recover. Prayed for Mr. Gehrke. Went on a crazy-long walk to get donuts. Dillon Rogers sent me a new necklace. Fired our basement contractor.

My flawed photo. Summer 2008.

September: Back to school. The basement was complete. We walked to remember. H reminded me that he does indeed know his grandma Nan.

Mornings at the bus stop. Fall 2008.

October: A power outage taught me to slow down. Maternity pictures. I claimed that we are misundersood. H turned 30 months.

November: We voted. And I nested. And I got impatient. H had surgery. Oh yeah, and J joined facebook.

My little Lightning McQueen. Nov 2008.

December: E finally arrived. And our family went from five to SIX. That pretty much filled up the month along with Christmas.

A more recent photo of E.

Four of a kind.

May this year be everything you hope it to be and more. May your cup runneth over with blessings from the Lord and love and joy. May you truly live each and every day to it's fullest. These are my hopes for you.

And for me. I pray and ask Him that this year is a year of joy. peace. love overflowing. kindness. stability. health. gratitude. contentment.

And as I said just a year ago, may my life and all of my days, be something good.
