I got an e-mail from one of my best friends this morning and she said Happy New Year and Happy New Decade...wow, that got me thinking.
Cait will be 10 this year. We will celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. We will both turn 45. Where has the time gone...
Our first five years of marriage where spent in Salt Lake City. Lots of growth in our relationship, even though we where best friends before we even started dating, and became High School sweethearts.
Looking back I can say, we have never truly had any hard times in our relationship. Despite, unemployment, infertility and the rest of life, we have always talked and been there to support. Its not something difficult, its just marriage. It's also the greatest. Add to that adopting Cait and its darn near perfect. We may not be, but it sure feels like our life is.
We are really enjoying our new house. We had family over for Christmas eve, which on my side is the big event, German tradition on my Mom's side since she is German. Anyway we had a great dinner, chaos of present opening and lots of fun. Love it.
Christmas morn, was just Chris, Cait and I. My folks slept in. Lots more fun. In the afternoon we went over to Chris's Mom's and had dinner, did presents. Works out great for us. Lots of time to spend with extended family and just our little fam as well.
New Years was awesome, we just stayed around the house, enjoying the nearly foot of new snow. Sledding and watching movies, football and playing Wii. Lots of new games at Christmas.
Did not want to come back to work.
Looking forward to 2010 and all it has in store.
