Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! Merry Christmas too! We hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and New Year!
This past year has been a whirlwind for us with having a new baby, moving, and making new friends. There's no other way to say it, we are extremely blessed to be happy, healthy, and alive!
Some moments that I can actually remember from 2009 that stick out in my mind:

New Year's Day 2009: Watching football all day then shopping with my fellow shop-a-holic BFF, RicAnn- we both found some amazing good deals on adorable clothes for our upcoming arrivals!
Feb. 2nd: Falling on the ice holding Colt (less than 2 weeks til due date with Laynie) and falling on top of Cade's head- taking him to see if he had a skull fracture which he did not and after being hooked up to a monitor for 8 hours straight with no food to see if my placenta had ruptured- it didn't so I was able to leave!

(pic was taken on my phone to send Scott right after it happened- imagine golf ball sticking out of head)

Feb. 18th: Elayna Kaylynn graced us with her presence. She is a true angel in our lives.

March 1st- April 3: Living with my parents! They were so gracious to let us stay there- 3 crazy kids and all!

April- June: Just trying to survive. Getting the kids fed and dressed was an accomplishment! Going to the park was the ultimate goal most days. Loved summer walks with the kids and summer night walks with new friends.

The rest of the year just flew by with lots of pleasant moments in the middle. Birthdays, anniversaries, new preschool, finally feeling comfortable in our new hometown.

We are looking forward to an amazing new year- minus the falls on the ice! We hope you are too!

Happy New Year!
