Here are some pics and highlights from 2009!
Beginning of 2009... =)
(I was newly preggy (about 6-8 wks) and quite sick in this pic=))
(and 23 wks preggy=) I had quite the belly at this point already=))
and right at the end of 2009 =)
I love seeing and hearing summaries of the past year (and decade!). It is not only fun to look back at pictures and remember of all the happenings, but it is necessary reflection and reminder of all the blessings that God has given us, no matter what our situation. As I wrote in our Holiday Card, 2009 was filled with wonderful moments and trying times but God is amazing through it all. Cheesy, maybe... True, yes! =)
Here are some NCF (well NCF w/ coffee added for Mommy [and Daddy now=)]) highlights from 2009...

January --I was preggy and a sicky sick on my back for about 2 months. But Hubby still took me to see Celine Dion! Don't laugh, she sings more than My Heart Will G0 0n! And the concert was fab.
March --Hubby admitted having man crushes on Justin and Keifer. --We traveled for work and fun, had a fun date night, a wonderful party with my fam, and so much fun with BabyBoy.
April --We hiked it up. We loved all of the hiking we got to do! --Upon inspection of a second big sonogram at 28 weeks bc of our high risk preggy with BabyBoy we found out the doctors didn't have any concerns with Next Edition! --We had quite the process of preparing to move, buying, selling, renting our house out. It was a continue to fully trust God reminder =)
May --We moved across the country. --We drove across the country (over 30 weeks pregnant!)! And visited friends (and one more we didn't get to post=)) along the way. We had a wonderful time on that trip. We loved it!
June --Our sweet baby boy turned 2 and I was 38 weeks preggy (and more fun social events).
July --We did as many house projects (and tons of painting) as we could before Next Edition came including the Family Room and Dining Room. --Next Edition was born on July 11th! We were so excited and thankful that I had a natural-no drugs-though crazy 1 1/2 hour drive laboring to 8 cms-incredible God stamped birth. --We continued to take plenty of pics of our sweet boys!
August --I had so much fun making my first fondant cake for BabyBoy's bday party=) I'm hooked now!
September --Had lots of everyday fun with the fam, a visit from my Dad, baking, and lots of picture taking=)
October --Took a family trip to visit my fam in AZ and had an amazing time! --Hubby turned 30!

November --Had Hubby's surprise bday. --Started our obsession with the Wii.
December --Decorated for the holidays (haven't posted the rest yet=)). --Had tons of snow. --Fun times with our fam of four! --And I had my first attempt at leggings=)
