According to my blogging records, I blogged fewer times this past December than any December in the last 3 years. And if I’m being honest, it was awesome to take a bit of a break. But I missed this place of mine. I missed it a lot.

So, it’s a new year. Which feels like a relief because I was so over 2009. And I think I’d be a bad blogger if I didn’t do some sort of 2009 wrap-up post at some point. I guess it’s kind of required for all bloggers.

2009 was a wild year. But, I could probably say that about every year for the last 4 years. We’ve had a strange run of crazy luck for these past 4 years. I’m hoping that 2010 is the year to give us a little peace. But, I’m not holding my breath.

So, where was I? Oh, right. 2009. Here are my 10 most memorable parts:

1. Traveler Oakes Kekoa Loving. Hands down the best thing to happen to us this year.

2. A surprise pregnancy and a heart-breaking miscarriage both served to remind us that God is with us in everything that happens.

3. We became a two car family again. Thank God.

4. The girls had a totally fun Pow-wow Birthday party with real live ponies!

5. Kai started Kindergarten at the homeschool academy and I began homeschooling for real with her on a daily basis.

6. We took a fun trip to Indiana with my mother where there was plenty of the obligatory Lucy and Ethel style shenanigans.

7. We had our annual Thanksgiving Warm-up with friends. And spent real Thanksgiving at the beach with family.

8. I turned 30. An event I was neither thrilled nor gracious about. (In fact, I didn’t even post anything on it because I was dreading it so much.)

9. I started studying to become a Birth Doula which I am totally thrilled about. (Though I failed to blog about it, too.)

10. We made our first two trips to the ER. Something I’m hoping not to repeat in the near future.

That’s it. Our 2009 in a nut shell. And now I’m looking forward to all the possibilities of 2010.

Happy New Year!
