A year in review

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. (To the few of you who actually read this) But with the holidays, family time, traveling from here to there, Thing 1, Thing 2, and the Butterbean desperately trying to keep up with them. . . things have been, for lack of a better word, busy. And I promise several posts in the coming days full of glorious fun-times. 2009 has been good to us. But I am ready to see it go. This year was filled with:
  • The Butterbean's laughter
  • Learned how to use coupons
  • The babe learned how to roll over
  • Cloth diapering
  • Started first semester of nursing school
  • Learned to make baby food
  • The Mr's birthday
  • Baby Einstein, Praise Baby, and Veggie Tales
  • Traveled to Baltimore
  • The Butterbean's first plane ride
  • A bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding
  • Painted the kitchen
  • The Butterbean's first tooth
  • Finished first semester of nursing school with great grades
  • Got a pool
  • Dog ate pool
  • Got another pool
  • Dog attempted to eat that one, but instead killed a tree
  • Fell in love with photography
  • Traveled to Chicago, Wisconsin, Michigan
  • Played at parks
  • Visited my sister, brother-in-law, Thing 1 and Thing 2 for almost an entire summer
  • Dare Camp

  • Started a new Sunday school class
  • A day trip to Chattanooga
  • Conquered post partum depression
  • Started second semester of nursing school
  • Butterbean learned how to crawl
  • My birthday
  • Learned how to be a kid again
  • Fell in love with The Mr all over again
  • The Butterbean turned one!
  • Dressed the Butterbean up as a three-eyed monster
  • Had coffee with old friends
  • The Mr's Family Thanksgiving get together
  • My sister and family visited the south!
  • Family game night
  • Belly laughing
  • Long walks with neighbors
  • Finished 2nd semester of nursing school!
  • Decorating for the holidays
  • The Butterbean walks!
  • Christmas morning at my parents house with all the grandchildren
  • The babe's first carousel ride

As you can see 2009 has been good to us. But I have a feeling 2010 will be even better! We have so much planned for this year! The Lord has been faithful to us and fulfilled all of our needs this year, even when we thought it would not be possible. And I'm pretty sure, most likely 100% sure, that He will provide for us again!

And as I sit here and write this, I'm surrounded by family, a nephew currently attacking me, laughter in the next room, a movie on tv, a sweet baby fast asleep, and love. We are blessed.

So goodbye 2009, Hello 2010! See you all next year!
