2009: It Can Only Get Better

Goodbye 2008!!!! I am GLAD to see you go!!!!!!!

This year has definitely not been one of our better years. However, with every bad thing, there is always something good just around the corner!

Here is a recap of our year: (some won't have pictures since those are all on our mac) :(

January: Dawson Nathaniel Fletcher was born on January 9, 2008. February: Michael surprised me with a new car!

March: I found out I was getting a promotion at work at the first of May!!!!

April: We both turned 27 and we put a fence around our backyard.

May: Found out we were pregnant on May 24, 2008

June: Found out we had a miscarriage on June 30, 2008

July: Went to Destin for five daysAugust: Spent a lot of time with good friends on our new boat.

September: Fell off the boat and hurt my ankle. :(

October: Went to Murfreesboro for a weekend to spend time with Lauren and Dawson!
November: Hosted Thanksgiving, decorated for Christmas, and had my gallbladder out (all in a 24 hour time span!)

December: Lightening hit our house on December 10, 2008 and caused around 50-75% loss of our home. We ended up having our best Christmas yet (even though it wasn't EXACTLY how I we pictured it!)

Happy New Year~ I'm visiting from Kelly's Korner. Thank you for your post. I'm dealing with a brother & his wife who don't want to do holiday's together (they will only host for my parents and her entire family) and have been stressed over it. My brother and I used to be very close prior to his marriage. But reading your post gives me perspective on a lot of things. Thank you for sharing.
