I"m a little bit behind when it comes to blogging- please accept my apologies! I recently had my wisdom teeth taken out and then a week later a pesky cold was passed around our family of 3- so we have been in rare form around here!
We celebrated New Years Eve at our house surrounded by friends! It was a charming evening as we brought in the new year with a house full of kids! My how times have changed-but we all know we are so very, very lucky! 2008 was our first full year as parents and thankfully we (or more importantly, Davis) has survived. Matt and I really embraced our roles as parents and just when we thought we had figured things out a new phase would begin! The joys of parenting right? We’ve learned a lot and still have more to learn in the year that lies before us! I pray we are teachable and open to the lessons that come our way.
As for 2008, it has been a good year in our household. However, outside the walls of our house times are hard! The economy is the lowest it has ever been not only in our lifetime but in our parent’s lifetime as well. Waking up in the morning is not what we do best in this household but we are reminded during these times that we are fortunate to have jobs to go to! Being in an HR position at an architectural firm (an industry highly effected by the plummeting construction industry) I have experienced the hardship of these times first hand. My words always fail me when a layoff occurs and my heart seems to physically hurt for the families who are affected. So in this sense, I’m very grateful that this year is over and I hope that 2009 will vastly improve!
Boelow are a few pictures of the cute kiddos from New Years Eve.... gosh they are so much fun! There will be one more joining them within a matter of weeks- and it will be a BOY! So exciting!!!!!
