Recap of 2009

2009 was by far the fastest year I've lived through. There were so many exciting changes.

  • First, and foremost, our perfect baby girl, Dallace, was born on June 23.
  • Luke and I were sealed in the Columbia River Temple.
  • Luke quit Skywest and Tank took over for him.
  • Luke got two different jobs at Hanford that make him glow in the dark..oh wait, it's just the shirt.
  • We bought a wonderfully reliable car.
  • Dallace and Avery began what will be sure to grow into a perfect friendship as cousins.
  • Dallace met Santa and LOVED him!
  • Luke learned he can eat 100 wings in about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Had our first family photo shoot.
Without a doubt 2010 will be just as exciting as our new little family grows together and move on to bigger things.
This year we plan to:

That's right, Defy gravity. The lyrics of the "Wicked" song will be our theme for this year.
There are so many things, people, events, and concepts that can bring all of us down so easily. Well not this year. This year we will:
  • Attend the temple regularly-regardless of how busy we get.
  • Pray and read TOGETHER everyday-there's always at least 5 minutes available.
  • Eat healthy & exercise-No food tastes as good as being in shape feels.
  • Show each other every day how much more we love one another than the day before-there's no excuse why we shouldn't.
  • We will make the hard choices with school/work/etc.-Failure isn't possible as long as we are together as a family and have the Gospel in our lives, because there is ALWAYS a way for us to succeed, even if that means a change in plans.
Nothing will keep us down this year. As a family we will try defying gravity.
