Happy New Year!

**Update: For some reason one picture will not show. It was a picture I had already posted back in May.


I am joining Jules' party over at The Roost. She wants us to post 10 of our favorite pictures from 2008. This was hard! I picked 10 and they are in no particular order and I probably could have picked 10 more!

Meeting Karen KingsburyA> in Branson.

Watching this little guy grow up.


Cody getting Lasik on his birthday. He was so excited.


One of my best friends, Leah (in the middle), getting married.


I love this picture. First of all, we are in Oops, which is great by itself. Second, it has my two favorite little boys in it. Zach and Connor. Connor is the little boy I nanny for. He loves "baby Zach".


Our 4th Anniversary trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico.


Our regular Family Nights.


Going to the lake on the weekends but especially on the 4th of July.


Our family vacation to Florida. (Unfortunately Cody could not come)


Zach's first birthday!


I had a wonderful 2008 and look forward to a great 2009. I feel very blessed when I look back at these pictures. Thanks Jules for hosting this party! I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!

I LOVE the picture of Cody after his surgery! Haha! That is too cute! It looks like you had a wonderful year! I'm praying that 2009 is an even better year for you and Cody!!:)

Love all of the photos! I was able to meet Karen Kingsbury on the Girl's Getaway Cruise a couple of years ago...she is such a neat lady. My Mom and sis are huge 'followers' of hers, so I think they were more excited than me, but it was a neat experience non-the-less.

I think my favorite pic is the one of Cody in the lasik 'goggles'. (LOL)

I'm ready for some of your decorating inspiration in 2009! :)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Whenever I think back to January, it seems so long ago! This past year was an especially crazy one for us, so it is hard to believe that it was less than a year ago that some of our 2008 events took place. :)
