God has blessed us with a New Year! Welcome 2009

2008 was a year to remember. Gwendolyn was born in Feb, and Grandpa went to Heaven in November. Eric was switched to a new area of the company after some worry that he might lose his job. The Lord has blessed us a lot with Eric's job. So many people have been laid off, and he has kept his job, and his new job seems to be nicer so far then the last.
Amelia turned four, and continues to wow us with how smart she is.
Besides birthing a baby, I have grown closer to God the last few months, and it has improved my outlook a lot! Life is so much better when you put your life in God's hands, instead of your own!

I look forward to 2009, and what God has in store for us next! :)

Christmas 2008

Christmas was nice. We got to spend Christmas Eve with my family, and Christmas Day with Eric's family.

It did seem that too much time was spent on gifts both days, and not enough time just being together. It wasn't bad, just something we might need to think about next year.
We did talk to Amelia a lot about what Christmas really means, and why we celebrate it, and what is important. She "gets" it. :)

We got Amelia just one gift, but it was a "big" one. She got a VTech Motion video game console. We aren't really impressed with it, as it is not always easy to make work right, and the graphics are not very good, but Amelia likes playing it, so that is good.

Just a few pictures from Christmas.
