Looking back at 2008....

In January ~ We got to spend some time with our cousins!
In February ~ Auburn and I went on our first cruise with a group from church! We went to Cozumel and the Yucatan! We had a great time!
In March ~ Garet and Peyton were both involved in the Madison County Fair! Our orange citrus bars and Old Time Butter Crunch candy made the sale!

In April ~ Peyton was playing soccer and loving it! It was his first year to catch on!
In May ~ Canon Tickner was born! Another boy in the fam!
In June ~ Garet turned 11!!!
and we celebrated at Adamson Lagoon!
In July ~ Garet went to Disney World with his best friend Logan and the Robinson family!
Making memories that will last a lifetime!

In August ~ We had FUN at the FRIO river!
In September~ Back to school time! Peyton will go to Miss Connie's full time and Garet will be doing 5th grd. again...the BEST decision we have ever made! We are having a great year!

Also, Hurricane Ike hit us hard! We were without electricity for days and without our daddy/husband for weeks! Almost one month!
In October ~ Trick or treating was a hoot with a bug catcher, Buzz Lightyear and a mad scientist!

and this was Garet and Logan's first year NOT to dress up for Halloween!
I think they are growing up!
In November ~ Cullen Rose was born! Welcome to the family buddy!

In December ~ My baby turned 5!!!!

Auburn and I celebrated our 12 year of marriage!
We ministered to our community through the Pathway of Lights! POL 2008 was a great success!!!
We got to play in the snow!!!

Santa was very good to us!
2008 was a hard year for me and my family! As I look back over 2008, I'm celebrating all of the good times that we had! No matter how rough life gets, we must go on! Life goes on! Both of my boys have grown so much this year! It's amazing how much they can grow in such little time! I encourage you to look back on 2008 and cherish the good times!
Happy New Year friends and family!
We wish you a new year filled with joy, happiness, success, peace, health and God's love!
Happy 2009!

Wow! I almost started crying. That is a wonderful way to look back at what God has done in the last year. It's definitely good to count our blessings. We love you very much!
