Saying Goodbye to 2009

This year was a rollercoaster to say the least, but no year, in my opinion, is a bad year. Let's just be thankful for the time that we have in this great life. Just a look back at a few things that happened in 2009.
  • Colleen was laid off her job late January
  • We took our annual ski trip to Ruidoso in February (to our dismay, there was no snow)
  • J.R. and Ashley got engaged! (yeah! a sister-in-law)
  • Colleen received part time work doing real estate photography
  • My Dad turned 60 and we threw him a kick-ass party! Mustaches and all....
  • Traveled to St. Augustine, FL to participate in one of my best friends weddings
  • Found out we were pregnant in June (but revealed to family in friends in July)
  • Because of the last bullet, Jeff and I are officially my parents favorites! at least Mom's... :)
  • Colleen got a great contracting gig with a great company in August (and hoping for something more permanent in 2010)
  • Discovered we were having a baby GIRL
  • Welcomed our new niece, Taylor Jo into the world!
  • Jeff learned how to install flooring and put up wainscotting
  • Completely finished one room in the house, even if the occupant hasn't joined us yet
  • We had our first official photography gig in October when we shot a wedding
  • Jeff passed his NICET level II exam (on to level III)
  • We paid off Jeff's truck (hurray!)
  • Jeff got his Concealead Handgun License
  • Became Godparents to our new niece, Taylor Jo Sprinkle
Looking back, it was a pretty busy year!

I'm going to try to slap my 2010 resolutions up a little bit later today. Stay tuned!
