Happy Blogiversary!

It's been 2 years now since I started this blog and I am quite proud that I have been fairly consistent about keeping up with it. (like scary consistent with 158 posts for 2008 and 157 posts for 2009) More importantly, I finally made the leap of converting the blog into a memory book - having just completed and ordered the 2008 edition. Now with 2009 having come and gone, its time to get to work on yet another blog book, only hopefully this one won't take a year to finally complete.

Since I love writing with a passion, this blog is a great way to keep family and friends up to date on the happenings of our family, not to mention a pretty personal glimpse into my mind. More so than that however, it has also turned into a great way to keep in touch as people respond to my posts and tell me what is going on in their lives. And I would be remiss not to mention the best network of blog buddies anyone could ever ask for. But most importantly, this is going to be the most awesome gift for the kids when they get older - it is going to blow any baby book I could have made out of the water.

As per the tradition I started last year, here are the three blog posts from the last 12 months that hold a particularly special place in my heart:

This last year has seen some huge milestones for the Funny Noses - Jadyn said good-bye to diapers and pacifiers and hello to preschool. Jake reached a huge milestone when he started kindergarten in the fall. Joe went back to school to complete his Bachelor's degree and I finally gained control over my health anxiety. We spent a lot of time exploring Joshua Tree National Park, took many trips to the river and enjoyed countless day trips to fun destinations like Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. But no matter what we were doing and no matter what challenges we faced, it was done with a fierce and infinite amount of love. And like every other year past, present and future, that is what I want the kids to remember most about 2009.
