2009 Wrap Up

To start off our holiday season, we had a beautiful Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is usually a big deal, but this year my in-laws went all out!. There were dinner menus with coordinating decorations, place settings, chargers, candles, fine china each wrapped with a beautiful ribbon, a family slide show and many other things that I am sure I am forgetting. I wish I had a picture to show how elaborate it was. It was one of the best we've had.


Looking back, I now know why it was so elaborate and special. Our brother-in-law, Brian, passed away the day after. He loved food. It would only seem right for him to experience the best Thanksgiving feast before he departed.

Brian we love, and will miss you.

We are grateful for the opportunity we have had to spend time with you on this Earth and get to know you.




We went to the coolest birthday party! Happy Birthday Arthur,

we had a blast at your Buzz Lightyear party!

We have tried and tried to start Cal on solids...stuborn little guy!
He refuses to open his mouth for us...

...and he thinks it's funny!

Okay so time has passed since I first started this post and now, most of the time, I cant shovel it in fast enough!

Merry Christmas! The hot item for this Christmas was anything Buzz Lightyear or Lightning McQueen. Landon and the jammies he has on, are inseperable! I am washing them constantly.


We celebrated Jared's 28th birthday, December 30th, and this was the first time that Jared can remember that he didn't have to work that day. Thanks Wendover!

Well I guess it's off to a new year and a new start. I have many New Year's resolutions lets hope they don't take up too much of my time so I can keep up on our Blog.
