it's a {wonderful} life

wow. what a year!! isn't it amazing to look back and think of all of the things that happened in just 365 days?? talk about mind boggling. 2009 was very good to us:

january: we received the news that we would be parents. whoa. even though we were planning on having a little baby...the next few months were quite surreal. attended jessica + steve's wedding & emily + elliot's wedding. played up in rexburg with our bff's meagan and ryan. {little did we know we would both be having babies later in the year}.

february: headed to manti, utah where we were sealed for eternity, and relived that wonderful day. stayed in a quaint little cabin in the middle of nowhere, and searched for hours for a place to fill our tummies.

march: st. patty's day we decided to share our big secret with the rest of the world. {how we waited that long i'll never know...}

april: moved out of our cute attic apartment. celebrated our birthday month. started the soccer season. dealt with the beginning of many injuries for danny. attended the brand new draper temple. started spring/summer classes. moved into the apartment with amazing sinks {but not so amazing landlords}

may: found out we were having a baby BOY. what a delight. baby was starting to feel THAT much more real. finished teaching first full semester of seminary at diamond fork junior. spent many days at seven peaks.

june: vacationed at snow canyon with my brother and his fam. found out we would be moving...AGAIN. found a wonderful basement apartment below our good friends kim and clay. painted the walls and got ready to move in. traveled to california with the byu soccer team. flew home and drove to rexburg for my bff lind's wedding.

july: got ready to move in when...the basement flooded. no home for a good two weeks. celebrated the fourth of july. became bigger by the day. danny's last byu soccer game.

august: one year anniversary!! xoxo. played at a cabin with our awesome friends up in sweet ole' idaho. spent two weeks in sunny, beautiful, hawaii. pure bliss. {but also eight months pregnant. not the most ideal combination...} started teaching seminary at timpview high school. yay t-birds. didn't think i could get any bigger...but then i did.

september: became parents. welcomed max into our family. found out that our hearts could love more than we ever thought possible. became instantly smitten by our little guy.

october: slowly learning to adjust to life with a newborn. halloween with our baby.

november: max reached a milestone and started sleeping through the night. hallelujah! celebrated turkey day in rexburg with my family.

december: danny graduated from byu. max and i met danny's seminary classes. awesome awesome. had a beautiful, relaxing christmas holiday. rang in the new year.

welcome 2010. what a fantastic year it is going to be.
i can just feel it.
