Happy New Year!

Its hard to believe 2008 is over (or almost). What a whirlwind year it has been for us. The day after Christmas in 2007, I got a late gift--a positive pregnancy test! 50% of life this past year has revolved around that baby, and the other 50% has revolved around Garrett. 2009 should prove to be very entertaining, as both of these amazing kids grow.

Highlights of 2008: Garrett's vocabulary got crazy, and so did he; Potty training; Summer and her amazing, amazing birth; going through all the baby things again; Summer's amazing sleep habits; just Summer and Garrett in general; finally getting a reliable 2nd car.

Lowlights: The terrible 2s have not been kind to us; Garrett's horrible sleep habits; a rough final trimester of my pregnancy; the 2008 presidential election (sorry liberal friends and family, lol!)

I'm feeling extra nostalgic, maybe because of how big Garrett has gotten, or because we just celebrated our anniversary. The moment I heard Brad Paisley's song "It Did," I immediately loved it because that is just how life has been for us--we've been truly blessed in more ways than I can begin to count. So enjoy the below montoge not just of 2008, but of things so far in the world of Utter Chaos. Its a bit slow in the beginning--digital cameras were just catching on, after all!
