2008 Comes To an End

What an amazing year this has been. It was tons of time with friends and family, ice fishing trips, a wonderful Valentine's Day and yet one of the roughest points in Eli's and my relationship, a break that did us good, me buying a house, picking out appliances and new things for the house, getting the keys for the new house, spending the first night in the house just Eli and I, turning 26, moving my brother to his final resting ground where he is meant to be, modeled wedding dresses in a bridal fair, Eli and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary which was huge after all we had been through, one of the worst nights and experiences of my life, my best friends bridal shower, my best friends bachelorette party, the rodeo, trips to the lake, pool time with friends, BBQ's, trips to California, Swae turned 6, my best friend's wedding in Park City, Eli and I got engaged when I got off the plane from my best friend's wedding, we found out we were expecting our first child the same night we got engaged, Seth turned 3, the first baby doctor appointment, trips to the river, Swae started 1st grade, GOT MARRIED!!!!!, pumpkin patch, a fabulous Halloween, one of the best Thanksgivings I've ever had, getting more time with the kids, and celebrating the best Christmas ever. Seriously, this was the best holiday season ever.

Today has been good spending time with the little ones. Tonight I will be bringing in the new year with my wonderful family. I couldn't imagine spending it any other way. To have Swae, Seth, and Eli right next to me is the best way to bring in a new year. There is no doubt that this year will be a great one. Our baby girl will be coming in a couple months, we will be having our big wedding with all our friends and family, and who knows what other great things will come.

I wish everyone a very happy New Year. Be safe and have tons of fun.

Good bye 2008 and bring on 2009.
