What a year we had! We have so much to be thankful for over the past year, especially the blessing of our daughter. Being parents gets better and better everyday! With so much tragedy in the world Jeremy and I are constantly reminded of God's blessings in our lives with family, friends, good health, having steady jobs, having each other and more.
I haven't made any resolutions, I never really do. I could always stand to work out more...well at all really. :) Anybody else with me? I have been doing a digital scrapbook for Addie (thanks to the suggestion of my friend Brooke) and my goal is to have Addie's first year done by her birthday and have it at her party. (It's hard to believe that we need to start thinking about that!) I have 6 pages done and haven't even finished the first month! Ah! After procrastinating on a baby book and/or scrapbook for 8 months I thought a digital scrapbook would be the way to go. Check out this online scrapbook website sometime.
New Year's Eve was low-key for us, just how we wanted it. We went over to John and Terrianne's house with three other couples and played the Wii. It was obvious of my lack of physical fitness when I got on the Wii Fit! We put Addie in a pack-n-play and she did pretty well. Around 12:30 she woke up (we were getting ready to leave anyway) because instead of the soft elevator music on the radio playing that we put her down to it was the "Crocodile Rock" ringing in the New Year. I think I would wake up too!
The rest of the weekend was a lot of organizing, resting, putting Christmas stuff up, etc. Our youth group had a lock-in on Friday so Jeremy and I went to the ice skating part and hung out for a bit. Jeremy and I went on a date on Saturday! Yahoo! We went to dinner and then to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Excellent movie! We never see movies so it was nice. Jeremy and I were in New Orleans two years ago and practically walked onto the set when they were filming a scene. We wanted to see if we made it in the film. Just joking! The scene they were shooting was in the movie though so that was pretty cool.
On Saturday Addie came down with a fever. Have you noticed a trend yet???? Two weeks healthy, one week sick. Geez! This time it didn't last very long and Addison only missed one day of daycare!
We look forward to 2009! Who knows what will happen?
