2009 A to Z...

of 2009!

This was a wonderful, beautiful year for our family. 2009 was filled with many exciting times and blessings. So, it seems only right that I would recap our year with the "A to Z of 2009."

We began our year by ringing in the New Year "Phillips Style!"

A beautifully blessed year
Brent's 40th birthday
Cheekwood Botanical Gardens for Easter
Disney World and SeaWorld excursions
Engagement of Chris and Jody -- we were all there to see it
First grade for Peyton (also baseball, karate and swimming)
Great, big, record-setting deer for Brent
Honorable mention (Employee of the Year) for Chasity
Incredible families that come to visit us
Jody and Chris' Wedding in Stuart, FL
Kentucky field trips for Peyton (and Chasity, if work counts as a field trip)
Landscaping our backyard and building a Fort for the boys
Minor (ok, major) obsession with capturing EVERYTHING on camera
Neighborly get-togethers -- Friday night pizza by the pool nights
Opry...Grand Ole Opry with Brad Paisley
Pre-k for Palmer (we tried baseball and karate...maybe 2010?!)
Quiet naptimes EVERY weekend
Rookie of the Year (for Brent...we hope!)
Snowball fights and Snowman building
Ten years of Marriage
Unbelievable amounts of Energy from two little boys
Vacations to Florida
Working out for Chasity -- a big part of this year
eXcitement over new Bunk Beds
Year full of Hugs and Kisses
Zoo outings at the Nashville Zoo

We're waving goodbye to 2009 and saying hello to 2010!

Beautifully Blessed and Truly Thankful for an amazing year...wishing, hoping, praying next year is even better,

PS...So happy to have started this blog. I can't wait to one day give this to the boys for them to read!
