Adios 2009

(I forgot to add the picture first before I typed my entry, so read all the way to the bottom to see why Jeff and I are all snazzy looking.)
I can't believe another year has come and gone. We have had a great year and we are looking forward to what 2010 has in store for us.

Some highlights from 2009 (Not necessarily all great things, but things that stand out):

-C-bear joining our family.
-Joseph being sick for about 3 months straight. He had two stomach virus' that lasted 5-7 days both times, a double ear infection and a sinus infection.
-Seeing thousands of plastic eggs being dropped from a helicopter and the madness that followed.
-Taking Joseph to the beach two times this year. That kid loves the water.
-Unfortunate event in Galveston.
-Taking Joseph to Schlitterbahn for the first time.
-Joseph found a new love: Cars.
-Potty training Joseph. He has pretty much mastered it now, with the occasional accident because he is too busy playing or watching his stories.
-Christian crawling, pulling up and sucking his thumb...all day.
-Collecting Cars characters. We have become obsessed with this and we need to stop.
-Joseph hanging from the ascending garage door.
-Christian nearly falling head first out of his highchair.
-Our family trip to Great Wolf Lodge.
-Our family trip to the beach house.
-Jeff's job laying off hundred's of employees and Jeff being spared.
-My sister finding out she is expecting.
-Our good friends Mark and Megan expecting.
-Getting to see old High school and college friends this year.
-Driving through ice and snow Christmas Eve to see family.
-Jeff and I celebrating 5 years of marriage.
Speaking of our 5 year anniversary, Jeff arranged a nice evening for us (Which explains the picture). We started by going to Vic and Anthony's Steakhouse for dinner. We went out on a huge limb and ordered each of us a glass of wine. Tasted horrible, but I was able to hold it down. We then order portabello mushroom's for an appetizer. For dinner, we each ordered a steak, in which I got a loaded baked potato as a side and Jeff ordered mashed potatoes. We tried to leave room for dessert, but the food was too darn good, so we stuffed ourselves full.
After dinner, we headed on the other side of town and went to Radio Music Theatre. For those of you who don't know what this is, it is a cross between, stand up comedy and improv. These three people do an entire show playing different characters which is absolutely hilarious. We went to see the show titled 'A Fertle Holiday,' which is a classic.
That pretty much sums up 2009. Hope your year was full of joy, memories and little stress.
Some things I'm looking forward to in 2010:
-Meeting baby Manning.
-Meeting baby Selby.
-Watching Christian become a little boy.
-Watching Joseph grow out of this sassiness phase.
-Watching God's work be done in our home, church and Jeff's job.
Everyone have a wonderful year!
