2009- A Year In Review

People always say things like "this year just flew by!" But 2009 really did go by so fast, at least for us. Maybe that's just what happens when you get old. I'm sure you are probably thinking, "Old? Give me a break!" But, I'm already starting to forget things, like my age for example. In the past month or so, I've been asked how old I was on two separate occasions. My answers: 23 & 25. How old am I really? : 24.

Anyways, all that aside, we have had a wonderful, busy, life changing year.

*Curtis completed 2 semesters of school (with superb grades!); Majoring in Computer Information Technology. We are hoping he can finish a year from now!

*We welcomed little Anderson Carter into our lives April 15th. He is now 8 1/2 months and such a joy. We love him A LOT...if you can't already tell by the hundreds of pictures of him on the blog.

*We moved into a bigger apartment. That makes 5 moves since we've been married.

*We enjoyed visiting family in GA and AL twice for 4th of July and Thanksgiving. We love our families!

*We visited family in UT as well while taking my little sis. to BYU!

*We celebrated 2 great years of marriage.

*Anderson has had a lot of milestones in the past couple weeks...crawling, 4 teeth, and standing on his own, to name a few! We're pretty sure he'll be walking really soon.

Here are a few pictures of our goings and comings:

At the Children's Museum in Atlanta

Riding the dinosaur at the park by Carl & Court's house. We love that park.

"WAAAHOOOO!!!" Uncle Ryan is so much fun!

Here we are trying to get a cousin picture...that's pretty hard to do!

Who needs presents when you can have boxes?

Anderson is such a fast learner...way ahead of his time. We've already got him into piano lessons:

...And dance lessons:

I guess it's time to move his mattress down, he finally figured out how to pull up in there and will yell for us until we come get him.

"I don't think I like this!" (Standing all by himself).

It snowed! For about 1 hour...all well, it was beautiful while it lasted!

Anderson's first Christmas was great! Santa brought him this awesome Sing-a-long Stage...he LOVES it! He's a rock star already.

He was showered with presents from both sets of grand parents, his great grandma, his aunts and uncles, and his great aunt. He loves them all, thank you everyone!

What a schmoozer!

He loves these little balls. Probably because they make his teeth feel better. Two little teeth on the top decided to arrive as an unwanted Christmas present for Anderson. He had a pretty rough time with it. The weird thing is that they aren't his "2 front teeth"... they are little side fangs. We now have a vampire on our hands.

All tuckered out after all that unwrapping!


  1. I love the one of him doing the splits. That's frameable.
