2008 was a great year and I'm hoping 2009 will bring just as many grand things for us and for all of you. This past year we had some momentous reasons to celebrate and some disappointing dips but I think we came out on top in the end. Here's a recap. Chris graduated with his Master's degree, I got to quit my job, Brendan grew and learned so many new things I can hardly name them all, we celebrated 6 years of marriage, house-hunted for a while, and just enjoyed life as it came at us. 2008 also brought some difficult times and decisions. Chris accepted a new job in New Hampshire after much thought/prayer/debate, we lost a baby, had dear friends move away from us, and found out we have to get Brendan some extra help for his speech delay. But through it all, we've had amazing support from family and friends, and most importantly the Lord. We've been greatly blessed and I would be ashamed if I didn't thank my Heavenly Father for all he has given us in the past year. We're looking forward with optimism to all that the new year has to offer and hoping that you have a wonderful year as well.
See you from New Hampshire the next time we check in!
