Another year gone! How does it happen so fast? Here I am again, left to ponder on the past year. All of the changes, the growth, the happiness, the whining.....but enough about me. Here are some highlights of the year: I now have two children that are old enough to require an adult ticket at Disneyland! My little Sunbeam is now in CTR 5! I'M WAY TOO CLOSE TO HAVING A TEENAGER IN THE HOUSE! But, I'm also getting closer to an all-day kindergartener next July. My sisters and youngest brother are in college, turning 19 tomorrow, Austin just put in his mission papers AND Catherine is getting married next summer!!! Mita had two hospital stays in 2008 and last month moved to a home. Mita's needs were growing and with all three kids in different schools this year - 7th grade, 4th grade and preschool, I wasn't able to keep up with everything. We're so happy for Mita and thankful for the wonderful people that take such good care of her. This change has truly lifted a ton of stress from me. The scariest thing about 2008 - realizing that my husband is now 1 year OLDER than my dad was WHEN I GOT MARRIED!!! Here's to enjoying and living through all the up's and down's of 2009!
