Almost 2009

I can't believe we're 2 days away from 2009. I feel like this year flew by. It's been a busy year with Greg getting a new job and us buying our first house. We sent out our Christmas newsletter last week and while we were going through our address book we realized that we really needed to update it. There are some friends and family that we don't have addresses for and there's also a lot that have got married and had kids and we've done a horrible job of keeping track of all that. We had a hard time remembering names of spouses and children. So, if you're reading this, please leave a comment (or e-mail me) with your name, spouses name, children's names and your address, so we can update our address book. It's one of my New Year's Resolutions.

Another New Year's Resolution I have is called Project 365 that I'm doing with my sister, Caroline. Project 365 is where you take a picture every day for a whole year. I plan to post the pictures on my Shutterfly account in an album called 365, that way I'm more likely to stick to it if I know Caroline can check up on me. I think this project will make me a better photographer and it would be so neat to look back and have pictures from everyday of 2009. If you want to read more about the project this website explains it more in detail.

We're going to Arizona in 2 weeks to visit Greg's family and we're really looking forward to it. We haven't been out to Arizona since Christmas 2007. I'm so excited to see our nephew, Ian. Last time we saw him, he was only 3 weeks old, so it'll be fun to see him and play with him now that he's a little older. If he's as cute & fun as he looks in the pictures we've seen, we might come back wanting one of our own. ;)

I hope everybody had a great Christmas. We really enjoyed our trip to Georgia to see my family, but it really flew by. We didn't get in until 3:00 on Christmas eve and then had to turn around and leave on Saturday. Hopefully we'll be able to get up there again before my dad goes to Afghanistan in June for 6 months.

I hope to post more often in 2009 than I did in 2008. Well, actually what I really hope is that we stay busy and have more to post about. Hopefully we'll be able to travel a little more this year. Something we've been talking about for years is going to Europe for Greg's 30th birthday which is this July. So many goals this year! Hopefully we can reach them all.

I hope everybody had a great Christmas and Happy New Year!
