The Year that Was 2009
2009 was filled with all sorts of wonderful moments, and because of this blog, I can relive my memories whenever I want to.
I thought, then, that I'd recap the past year by sharing some of my favorite moments from my blog.
Some of the special moments included these...
We cheered for Bama as they won the SEC championship, and cheered for Sydney singing a solo. See it HERE.
We enjoyed Halloween (as always). Read about it HERE (but be forewarned, there's also Bama football and a beauty pageant in there too).
I bragged a lot on my girls. Like HERE.
I baked a lot of sweets, but especially loved my new favorite, homemade cake. See it HERE.
Delaney became a teenager. Read about it HERE.
Gary and I celebrated our anniversary with a bed & breakfast, Shakespearean geaway. Read about it HERE.
McKenna went to her first prom (and also celebrated Sydney's 5th birthday within a day of each other). Read about all of it HERE.
I wrote some poetry. Read some of it HERE
It snowed. See it HERE
I got to be part of an awesome spiritual retreat (where I was a leader and speaker). Read it HERE.
Delaney made the middle school softball team. Read about it HERE
I also learned a lot of lessons. These posts aren't really related to any particular event or activity, but they were important in that they touched me, inspired me, amused me,"grew" me, etc. Like the story of the tie (HERE), and how God's love doesn't fit in a cup (HERE), and how Mother's Day made me reflective (HERE), and how Summer memories are some of the strongest (HERE), and how it's so cool to see your kids "get it" (HERE), and how sometimes it's just fun to share random information with my blog friends (HERE)!
That was fun...fun to remember a lot of those moments!
I'd love to see some of you do that on your own blog. (I guess that's a challenge to you!) If you don't, though, maybe you could just pop by and tell me what your favorite memory from 2009 was!
And I guess this is a good time and opportunity for me to tell you all "Happy New Year!" and to wish you all a wonderful, blessed 2010!
