2009: In Review

I told Jaiden that I wanted to get a video if her saying "Happy New Year" to everyone and of course she agreed. It was her idea to introduce herself and decide to say her ABCs. I think they are all too cute not to post!

Well, when I think back over the past year, a lot has happened here!

In February, Nutmeg adopted us.

In March, I became an aunt!

In April, Nutmeg surprised us with 4 kittens.

In May, we began siding our house.

In June, I started successfully selling my products at a farmer's market, our dog attacked Stormy, and my grandmother fell, breaking her clavicle.

In July, Ebie and Dargo came into our lives.

In August, we took in a pregnant stray, Peaches, so we give her kittens a home after they were born.

In September, we finally got to take a family vacation to Myrtle Beach, Peaches had the kittens, and we put Daisy down due to arthritis, old age, and behavior.

Luckily, the rest of the year had been pretty quiet for us!

Both Jaiden and Arya have grown so much over the last year! Just look at the pictures for last Christmas and this Christmas:

From the Red Mommy Family to yours, HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR!!!

Hi Amber, thanks for your post about my weight loss. I'm so excited about my 10 lbs.
I saw you went to Myrtle Beach...I live 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Beach...

It never ceases to amaze me how much children change in such a short time! I pray that 2010 brings many blessings to your family and that your girls continue to grow, finding love and happiness surrounding them. Tell them they did a great job on the video!
