Happy New Year!

Instead of Friday's Favorite Five, I thought I would do my Favorites for 2008.

1) Going to Germany and Paris in early February -- Bob and I had so much fun seeing Paris for the first time!

2) My annual Scrapbook Weekend with my girlies.
3) My baby boy, Bobby, getting baptised at church on Easter Sunday.

4) Driving to California in July to see my good friend, Kate, get married. (couldn't find a picture of me and bride, so here's one of Bobby and Bob with Kate.)

5) And, we got to bring Scott and Jessica (the bride's children) back home with us to visit for a few days.

6) Getting to see my good friends, Eve and Debby, again. AND all of our children getting to play together for the first time in several years!

7) Going camping on the Oregon Coast with my good friend, Denise and her family.
8) Heading back to the Midwest to see both sides of our family.

9) Celebrating birthday's with my children -- Alex getting to throw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game, Sarah getting her ears pierced, and Bobby turning 17.

10) And finally, just spending lots of time with my friends and family. 2008 was a great year and I hope 2009 will be too. It's good to know that we have a fresh start this year -- new president, new resolutions, new experiences -- a new year to live life to its fullest.
Best wishes for 2009!
