Saying goodbye to '09.....and "Hello 2010!"

I don't have many musings to talk about today. We've had a full year, to say the very least. I'm not complaining....we have been so blessed.

From watching our 1 year old become a 2 year old.....to finding out we're expecting our second baby....to selling our first home....to buying a new home....moving the weekend before my last semester of school.....my last semester of school... graduating...and just surviving all that life has to offer!! And that's just naming a few!

We joke about how we like to cram all of our major life-changing events into one year....new baby, new house, graduation, etc., etc. ;) haha

So to wrap up this year.... I decided to compile a slideshow of 2009. It's almost 5 minutes long so I realize many may not watch, but I mostly made this for our family and for memories. It's to music so it seems to go a little faster....and I think the song is all too fitting!

I highly recommend taking the time, if you have it, to go through all of your photos taken in 2009. It really takes you back. We all know that a year flies, but man.........so. much. changes. As a matter of fact...I can't even watch this slideshow without tearing up (which I realize could also be due to hormones!). Think back to where you were a year ago today....what were you doing...what was important then...is it still now?....what were your kids doing then....and now? Did you even have a child then? ~Could you have ever imagined?~ I don't think I could.




So to everyone....wishing you a very safe and happy New Year! May 2010 have many blessings in store for you all!

Love,
Our Family

I loved the slide show. You did a great job. It will be nice to have that to look back on over the years and the way you documented all those firsts. Great idea!And man Parker has changed so much!

Excellent slideshow!! I LOVE it!!! I forgot how Parker had some chubby cheeks too! I smiled the whole way through, and even teared up. So sweet!! She has grown up so much even since ya'lls vacation, and that does not seem THAT long ago!! Gosh they grow WAY too fast!!
