Happy New Year!

So what did I do in 2009?

December- Jonathan got his Master's-hallelujah! Sang Hallelujah chorus at the Stake Center. Hosted In-laws and 4 missionaries for Christmas Eve. Married 9 years, and did the charleston with a bunch of teenagers

November-Celebrated 2 kids' birthdays. My oldest was baptized-and I had raging PMS.

October-Mema, then Grandpa Bob passed away within the same week and Mr. Malley and I made the trek (ya know, in an airplane) from Houston to Chicago, sans kids. Made 3 spider costumes and I survived.

September-the 3 year old became a 4 year old

August-The 3 year old started Pre-K since his birthday is the cutoff date. The house has never been so quiet. In YW we had the "Back to School Blessings Banquet" and miracles happened.

July-We saw fireworks with my wonderful YW counselors and their hubbies in San Marcos. Great day. The 5 year old became a 6 year old and we saw Harry Potter.

June-I had my last "20s" birthday. Went to Girls' Camp for the first time and had a blast. Missed the family for a week.

May-Stressed about girls' camp.

April-Put together the YW rummage sale-and survived-barely.

March-Celebrated St. Paddy's Day & our family's Irishness.

February-Hubby's Birthday (32-he's practically a fossil, I know)

January-Who can remember?

Congrats to both of you on finishing the Masters degree. I'm working on one right now and now how tough it can be on family time!

By the way, which stake are you guys in? We're in the San Antonio East stake.

Thanks. Yeah, it can be kinda brutal, especially since he was working full-time, the whole time. We're in the North Stake. I read your post on the new GP manual. My husband actually teaches GP during 2nd hour. I don't get to hear the lesson in 3rd hour since I'm the YW pres. Guess I'll have to start going to his class.

"It can be kinda brutal, especially since he was working full-time, the whole time."

Exactly. That's what I'm doing too.

As for the Gospel Principles lessons, I'm actually really looking forward to them. I think will can and will provoke a lot of good discussion. The manual itself could use some more improvement, but like I said, the revisions are a step in the right direction.

My wife also misses the lesson during third hour since she's the YW president in our ward as well. That's a big calling. Best wishes to you guys!
