is it really.... 2010?! yes! and I think it is going to be a year full of beautiful new beginnings. 2009 was an amazing year full of adventures, family, friends, love, some growing up, and mostly good memories :) And i thank everyone for their support and love!! I have good news for those who don't know, and apologize to those who found out from other sources than myself and jared.... WE ARE ENGAGED!! and i couldn't be more happy :-D He asked in front of our tree the last night we were in our apt. before sharing christmas with the fam, and it was absolutely perfect. just have to get used to calling him my fiance! Christmas was wonderful, had a nice break from work and got to spend time with my familia, Jared's fam, and Jared :) It couldn't have worked out better that jared's family tradition is doing most of the christmas festivities on christmas eve - a little different for me! But much fun and excitement, specially with the last minute TV and set up!!
Raku platter that Jared gave to Lynn, she had it up on the wall the next day :)

got to play with all of payton's new toys! mostly the new kitchen set, but also some coloring :)
we were invited to our professor freind, dan rioz's new years shin dig last night. it was kind of weird being the kids of the adult party, but still adults.... it was a pretty fun night! i would have to say the most fun was the making of our outfits since it was a "duct tape" theme where 2 items of your clothes had to be made out of duct tape! In the making; monday night @ scott's - watching the nugs... loose :( boo
My dress! and awesome headband i got at work - we got a little festive and had some fun while working late on the holiday.

We also had some time to go to the dog park before i had work. a great way to spend a semi-warm afternoon :) bees made some new pup friends and we had a hoot watching them play.
