2008 in Review

Well, another year has come and gone. It really is true that the older you get the faster time flies. I can't believe it is already the end of the year. So let's see what happened this year..

I had a baby.

That's about it. =X

This year wasn't our usually frenzy of craziness, but we did have a lot of good moments. We, of course, added to our family in April. Nathan was born on the 7th and he completed our family. He is learning and developing beautifully. Well.. you know.. minus the sleepless nights. But hey.. it's something we can reminisce on next year and laugh about as he snoozes away.. right? Jon Kent went from being a toddler to a little boy. His mannerism have changed from toddler to little boy. He is just growing and learning. It's so amazing. Zoey grew 5 inches over the last year. She has learned to ride a bike and swing herself in a swing. She also got her ears pierced. She is smart, sassy and beautiful. She is also leaving her toddler ways and becoming more of a little girl as each day passes. Kent and I celebrated another year of marriage.. taking it to a grand total of 6 years so far. Which in this day and age is saying a lot. Especially considering the ages we got married at. 18 (me) and 20 (Kent). I believe this year we experienced more growth in our marriage than ever before. It's not something we planned and set a goal to do.. it just happened and we embraced it.. or at least I believe we did. Can't really speak for Kent. Also, as this goes to "press" we may be making one of the most drastic changes.. moving. Kent applied and submitted for a new job that would move us to South Carolina. There's no telling what 2009 has in store for us. But we will just keep on keeping on. God has been good to our family this year. We are healthy, we have family and friends who love us, we have shelter and clothes, we have employment.. or at least Kent does. So we have been blessed.

And to end this random review of 2008 my 2009 resolutions:
Start back to school this Spring.
Get accepted into the nursing program.
Get over the house not being perfectly clean all the time.
Do more activities with the kids.
Do more educational things with the kids.
Don't let life overwhelm me so often.
Become more active.
Give more time to my quiet times.
And lastly and possibly importantly.. get 8 full hours of sleep before the end of 2009.

I have been blogging, but it's not showing up as updated on the dashboard for some reason.

God Bless
