Goodbye, 2009. I Don’t Think I’ll Miss You At All.

Well…today is the last day of 2009. The year I lost my Dad and got laid off. My Mom was also hospitalized for a week, needing to have her gallbladder removed. And just two days ago, my in-laws lost their canine matriarch after a long life. No matter how long you’ve had a dog, the loss is always still very sad and Prissy dying just solidifies 2009 in my mind as THE YEAR FROM HELL. But…there have been a lot of moments I won’t forget, or don’t want to forget. And lucky for me, I capture most of them on camera. So…here is the full slideshow of random photos from 2009. Or the smaller/embedded version is below.

Happy New Year’s to you all! Thanks for sticking with me this year, without you I think I would have had a much more difficult time coping. You really are the best. Love you all! EVEN YOU!

    Such awesome pictures! Makes me feel so guilty for not capturing more of our life on camera. Shoot… yesterday was birthday day in our house (my oldest turned 18 and my #2 was 14) and we went to Mikato… didn’t take one picture. My 11yo was snapping some shots; maybe she has some worth saving.

    Anyhow, this is supposed to be about YOU. Pictures are great, colors in them are amazing. Y’all look like you have so much fun.

    I have actually done something else even dumber than you have regarding the cooking of the cake balls…but I refuse to tell!!!

    I have loved reading you for the last few years–actually don’t know how long but it was before NickiZ and AndyZ.
    Hope 2010 will be a great year for you.

    Love you, your family, and your blog!! Happy New Year!!
