Happy New Year!!

Free Smiley Face Courtesy of www.FreeSmileys.org2009 is upon us! We had a nice relaxing night at home and had my brother-in-law and his girlfriend over. The oldest caveboy stayed up to make noise with us and watch Robbie Knievel jump his motorcycle over a mini volcano in Las Vegas. Oh, the excitement was just too much. Ooooh, awwww....

We say goodbye to 2008. Here is my ABC's of 2008

A – Atlantic Ocean in September
B - Blog, oh how I love to blog. Blig, Blog, Bliggity, Blogger
C - Cavemen, where would I be with out you?
D - D.A.R.E - Kevin graduated from the D.A.R.E program this year.
E - Education - I'm always getting this with living with cavemen.
F - Forty - I went kicking & screaming, but ended up embracing being 40. I guess it's not so bad after all.
G - Godparents, we became Godparents to Baby Curtis this year in Montana. He's such a cutie patootie!
H – Horseback riding is so fun. Giddyup y’all.
I - Internet - I'd be so lost with out it.
J - Job, so glad we have these this year!
K - Kick Ball. I still play this two seasons a year.
L - Lottery - Keep buying them, still not winning. :(
M - Magic Wand - Really wish this came with Godparent status.
N – New Nikon camera & Novel I started in November.
O - One Hundred Year old Grandmother Gracie’s celebration.
P – Pacific Ocean in November
Q – Queen of the house, that’s me!
R - Remote controls - Why can I never find one?
S – Spuddie. My favorite Aunt. She lives in California, so I don't get to see her often, but she is the greatest. I got to see her this summer and it was really great spending time with her. She will be 99 in 2009.
T - Tattoo - Yes, it's real. Yes, I got one for my birthday. No, I haven't lost my mind.
U - Update. We updated our house this year and got rid of all our little kid and baby stuff. Our house grew up, as have our kids.
V - Vacations - We sure do love going on these!
W – Wyoming – one of our favorite places to be.
X - nothing starts with X that we did in 2008. Kevin has an exciting year in baseball. His team "The Rangers" won the little league championship.
Y - Yawn...I find myself doing this a lot just trying to keep up with every one and every thing.
Z - Zoo. We just LOVE the new Grizzly Bear Exhibit at the MN Zoo. We also loved the San Diego Zoo too. Kevin's favorite exhibit was the snake pavilion, Sam & I enjoyed the Giant Pandas and baby panda. They are so cute. Too bad they are capable of ripping your face off, cuz they sure do look cute and snuggley!

Happy New Year! A tattoo? Wow, that's really cool. And 40. Yes, I too turned 40 this year, and my body is doing all sorts of things to prove it. But I don't mind most of the time. I really want to age gracefully, and each decade seems to bring interesting things to experience.

May 2009 bring peace, prosperity, and happiness to you and your family!

What a very fun idea to explain your whole year in the alphabet! I'm going to take your idea and email it to my friends and family so we can all share our 2008 year in the ABC's with each other.
