Biggest Blessings of 2008... And hopes for 2009

2008 has been a memorable year for myself and my family. Some things have been great and others unfortunate (as it is with every one). Because I'm still not feeling great... I'll narrow it down to our two biggest blessings.

My niece. who was born in March, and who brings every one in my family smiles and joy. She is a smiley baby, who smiles with her whole face and it is great to watch her learn more each day.

Our house... we bought it in March too. And though home ownership has been a little stressful at times, I have no desire to go back to renting. I love the space and I love that we can make it ours. And as you can see above, Tater loves the yard (even when it is snowing!).

And in terms of hopes for 2009... my dad is looking for a job. If anyone knows of any IC design jobs, please let us know! Otherwise, I hope that my work continues to challenge me and that I can meet and exceed their expectations. I hope that we can continue to live frugally and save. I hope that Reid's business gets off the ground. And I hope that all of you have successful, happy and productive new years too!

That picture of Tater is a hoot! And the pictures of your niece are so cute! I know y'all are enjoying her.

I'll say a prayer that a great job comes your Dad's way soon.
