2008 in Review!

2008 has been a very great year for us and a lot of awesome things have happened in our marriage. There were numerous fun and huge life milestones we encountered this past year and it has been a year of many many memories.

In January we went on a Fair family vacation to Seaside for a couple of nights. We had a lot of fun playing with the girls and browsing through Seaside and also just relaxing for a couple of nights.

This brings us to April where things started to pick up for the year! Peter graduated from college! It was such a big milestone for us! Our entire dating and married relationship had focused around getting Peter through school and it was finally done and we could celebrate!

My husband, the (nerdy) accountant!
To celebrate the graduation milestone we took off to Jamaica for a week. This vacation was awesome. We had such a great time together and made many memories that we will never forget.

I think that this picture right here pretty much summarizes the highlight of my year. This was a picture taken at our private oceanside dinner in Jamaica. It was such a romantic experience!

The end of May we got our precious baby girl Juno. She has been such a great dog and we spoil her rotten! Juno is unique from other dogs because she has no hair and we wouldn't want her any other way!

In July for our 2nd Anniversary we returned to Disneyland. We had a very fun trip. All of Peter's family joined us for this short 3 day jam packed tripped and we experienced an earthquake Disney style that shut down the park for several hours.

I do not want to go without acknowledging one of the lesser known parts of our year. In September I found out I was going to be an aunt again and I was thrilled. A short time later, the baby was lost. We still acknowledge the precious little May baby that is not here.
In early September Peter started his career at KPMG. He is really enjoying it there and has his career off to a great start!

In October Peter went to Chicago for training with KPMG.

The beginning of December we added a new baby to our family. Indy our chocolate miniature schnauzer. He is adorable and very awnry!
Our puppies celebrated their First Christmas, and we even had a white Christmas with record snow falls!

At the end of December our condo finally sold! We had a very long drawn out closing on it but it all finally went through and we said goodbye to condo living.

We moved into our new home with lots of room to grow!!!
2008 was a great year and we look forward to what 2009 holds for us. We already have lots of exciting hopes and plans for the year ahead. Happy New Year!!!!
