2008--it really was great!

i have decided to take a break from taking down the christmas ornaments/cleaning and jot down a few thoughts about 2008. when i think about this past year i am flooded with wonderful memories, feel so blessed, and have seen the Lord's hand in our lives so many times. the highlight of our year was the birth of our beautiful daughter. she, along with her brothers bring such a tremendous am0unt of joy to our lives. i am also very grateful for our wonderful families. we love them and feel so blessed to have the friendship with them that we do. i am also grateful for the many, many dear friends that we have. (jess, we must have a pizza making party with non-alcholic pina coladas--heehee!!) our membership in the church is one of the main things that brings our family peace, joy, and a sense of hope. how grateful i am for a testimony and for the opportunity that i have to strengthen it on a daily basis.
i am excited for this new year! "A" and i started the day with a brisk walk--boy was it cold and i am feeling the pain now--which is a good thing!!
here's to 2009!
