New Year!

I still can't believe that 2008 is over and a new year has begun. I am extremely glad that '08 is over. I am ready to start new this year. I have lots of resolutions and goals for this year and things to look forward to. Bring on the new year!

This past week we were so lucky to head south to visit some of our really good friends the Millers who were visiting their families for the holidays. We met up at a McDonald's for lunch and a playground and then headed to Jeff's parents to relax, visit, and swim. We left our area with 45 degrees on the thermometer and headed to 75 degree weather! It was a great day to swim. It was so fun to catch up with them and see their new little guy! We also got to see Walid and Bethany Kaakoush and their 4 kids. The kids all played so good together and they all had a blast. There were plenty of boys and girls to play with. 
(Walid and Bethany left before we broke out the cameras)

Baby Enoch was sleeping so we didn't get a picture of him but here is Max, Asa, Asher, Elena and Aidan. Look at what happens in 10 years!  

I was so happy to see Kim again! We laughed and talked and reminisced about all the great memories we have. I wish it could have lasted longer. I wish we were closer. :( It was so worth the 2 hours there and 2 hours back to see them. Hopefully this year we could visit them in Hawaii!  We love you guys!

Oh I am jealous! Asa looks like a mini Jeff! How great you got to see them. I love our little reunions. Maybe for our 15th we should plan to meet somewhere for the weekend or something. We are still looking forward to yosemite in April or May.

McDonalds??? Did Lemuel go with you?? He hates McD's. How did you pull that off?? I am sure he did not eat anything. He is such a food snob. Gotta love him. Miss you tons. Can't wait till March.

When you said you had a blog I just had to check it out. Very fun! I'd love to check in again if that's okay!
