Happy New Year!

New Year's Eve bash at our house---food, family, friends, karaoke, games, pots and pans, and a good time!

It seems like a lot of people have commented that they hope 2009 will be better than 2008,but I must say that 2008 was a great year for our family -- full of the best memories! Here's a little recap--

By far the best thing that happened in 2008 was the birth of Mia Kate into our family! She was born in January and continued to be the highlight of our year.
Our 2 week vacation to Australia (Gavin, Mia and me) -- Queensland and Sydney. Going to Bondi beach, Gavin scuba diving for his first time in the great barrier reef, Keith Urban concert in the Sydney Opera House.

Mia's baby blessing


Puerto Vallarta with Gavin and Mia. A true vacation. Sleeping in. Lounging around the pool. Staying up late talking with friends. Good food. Relaxing.

Gavin competed in the St. George Triathlon


Washington DC with Jack, Ryan, Hadley and Mia

Sun River, Oregon with my sister, Heidi's family

Gavin and Scott completed a half marathon


Celebrated 12 years of being married to Gavin!!


Newport Beach with Hadley and Mia


Girl's weekend trip to San Francisco with 2 of my favorites--my sis (Heidi) and sis-in-law (Rae)

Happy 2009!

Goodness, I am now just looking at all you did last year. It will be hard to top that in 2009. But you are starting off the year with your cruise. We are looking forward to this next year and spending lots of time together!
