2009: A year in photos

I created my blog not only to share but to remember. To remind myself of what I have done. But with only 64 blog posts for 2009, the memories and sharing just has not been there.

I don't really think of my family (the hubby and I) as people who really do much. I mean it is just us and the cats. We don't have kids, we don't really travel, we don't really do anything other than go to work and hang out at home. 2009 brought some pretty significant changes for us. 2009 was to be the year of reconnecting with my past and it did not disappoint. Looking back I have to say that 2009 ended up being a pretty full year for us after all.

Christmas dinner 2008 was such a success that the hubby had to make another prime rib to celebrate his birthday.

the husband made this

...and my sister (who was visiting from France) even got to join us.

An old friend (from high school) came to town for a visit.

Shanka comes to visit

...and I reconnected even more with another.

Oh look! Remember them?

I worked on something theatre related. Helping out backstage is as close as I get now.

Charlie Brown


For my birthday I got a special present.


Which in turn broke our computer so we were forced to upgrade. We finally got a laptop and a computer with over 40GB of space! Welcome to modern technology.


Not only did I get an iPod for my birthday but so did the hubby. He got an iPod for my birthday too. I had to learn how to share the computer. I am not good at sharing.

just filling-up the iPod

Someone came back to town for another visit.


...and someone turned 17.


April started with a bang! My high school class was supposed to have it's 20-year reunion the previous year but it never happened. So in April there was a multi-year reunion get together thingy.

(The only picture with me in it and it is kind of fuzzy.)

The reminiscing continued with breakfast/lunch the next day.

We started looking to buy our first home.


And another friend came to AZ to visit. A great group of ladies I have not seen in a long time.


After looking at lots and lots of houses we finally found the one for us.

We put in an offer on the house and that was accepted. But found ourselves in a holding pattern waiting for the house to legally be ours.

So we started to pack.

We officially became homeowners.


....and we had our first home emergency.....plumbing issues are definitely not what I would call fun.

We had our first family get-together in our new home. Lots of yummy BBQ.

We had even more family over for dinner. This time it was steak.

I finally started online courses to get certified for my job.

....and we had our first over-night houseguest. It was not invited back for another stay.


The hubby made the best turkey EVER!

We celebrated Christmas Day in our new home by having our parents over for prime rib.

I got to meet up with some old school friends that I had not seen in years.

And we ended our year by getting new windows installed for our home.

So that is 2009 in a nutshell. Stay tuned to see what 2010 will bring.

  1. I think this post sums up why I will never get tired of the year-end round-ups - even when you don't think you've done much, it's all those little things that make a life. Here's hoping 2010 is just as rich for you, Stefani!
