rearview mirror: 2009 in pictures
It seems entirely appropriate to celebrate the end of 2009 by going to bed early (and NOT due to pregnancy). This year exhausted me. Too many big events happened this year not to document, and since I posted so irregularly this last year, I thought one mammoth photo post might give some justice. Thank you Kristen and Tim for your contribution (in case you were wondering, their pics are the good ones.) Well world, here it is: our rearview mirror.
We woke the boys up at 11:00pm, and Mark, Tim, and Kevin took the boys to the see our friend’s show at a local venue. Responsible parenting of a 3 and 5 year old? Probably not. But the boys still talk about it.
March 2009: Olive’s birth
August 2009: travel to David and Karabeth’s wedding on the Tennessee River (with the much needed help of our friend Emily)
our niece Iris is born to Scott and Diana in Morocco
Mark starts a new job teaching (no picture)

I start school at home with the kids (pictures — are you kidding?)

Olive’s first Christmas (9 months), says “da-da,” “ma-ma,” and signs “more”
