The Year in Review

As my last post of 2009, I wanted to revisit some our most memorable moments.  This by far has been the best and hardest year of my life.
  • January
    • Clay and I went to the beach for our babymoon!

  • February
    • I had two baby showers for Will and we were so blessed to get everything we needed for Will's arrival
  • March

  • April
    • Clay and I dedicate to raise Will in a Christian home. So special and we got to share it with Tabitha, Jason, and Gavin.
    • We take our first family vacation!

  • May
    • I go back to work.  Will still can't start daycare, so a host of wonder friends, including Lisa and MA, keep him to help us out.

  • September

What a year!  Will has changed our lives and our presectives.  I am so thankful that God allowed us to have this little boy and all the joy he has brought to our lives.  We are truly blessed!

100th Post

So this is my 100th post! I don't really have much to say. We are all trying to recover from the craziness of the holidays.  Clay and I both have Thursday and Friday off, so we will be spending some quality time with Will!  I hope everyone has a great rest of the week and we will see you in 2010!

Christmas in Chelsea

Saturday night, we headed to Chelsea to have Christmas with my Mom's family. There were about 25 people there.  We played Dirty Santa and had a great time. Will got to hang out with a lot of our family we don't get to see very often. 

Will spent most of the night in Richard's lap. He LOVES Richard!  And he also loved this cat. It was fake but it purred and moved.

Hunter opening his gift.

Clay, John, and my cousin Brad.

Julie kept getting her gift stolen. She opened the most presents.


Mom with the gift she picked.

Will with Curt and his girlfriend, Nicole.

Still hanging out with Richard.

More Family.

Will got this sensory cube from my aunt and uncle.  He decided he needed to taste it.  Strange kid :)

He found this baby carriage and decided he liked pushing it around. Clay about died.

Will's First Christmas!

We had a great day on Christmas Day!  We stayed home all day in our PJs.  It was the first year that Clay and I have been home on Christmas and we loved it.

We started off the morning with a HUGE breakfast with my parents, John, and my grandparents. After breakfast, we opened gifts and played with Will.  Around lunch time, Dan and Celia came over and we opened presents again and played some more.  It was so fun!

Will had a great Christmas! He got so MUCH stuff. It looks like Toys R Us exploded in our living room.

Eating a snack while waiting for everyone to come over.

It was a hammer and nail toy.
