2008 by the numbers....


1200 lights used on the Christmas Tree


284 slate tiles installed


178 items checked out from local library

45 lbs lost by Andy & myself combined


25 boys' baseball games attended


15 Kitchen cabinets painted (thanks Kris!)

11 total cans of paint used in house


10th wedding anniversary

6 hours of labor


4 generations


3 rooms of hardwood floors sanded


2 amazing boys


1 new addition

2008 was an amazing year for us; Ella arrived in May, we accomplished a lot of work on the house, built amazing relationships with our church, and grew a lot closer together as a family.
2009 is going to be an adventure. Andy and I start classes back up in a few days cutting down on family time. A few goals that I am going to focus on all year are:
Organize and prioritize.
TV is out and reading is in.
Buy less and make more.
Family and time are valuable - make it count.
