Happy New Year everyone! Looking back on 2009, we had some great times and some big changes - going on our honeymoon in London, building and moving into our new home and finding out we were expecting. And the last week brought even more. With our putting a deposit down on our new puppy Tulle, we quickly realized our family to be had outgrown the cars we own. So New Year's Eve day we took the corvette in for an oil change and wash. We left with a 2007 GMC Yukon. And while we will enjoy the perks of owning a truck again, I know Cameron is mourning the loss of his dream car. And I'll miss riding around as passenger in such a zippy car. We definitely enjoyed driving it to Fort Bragg for our anniversary. Someday I'm sure we'll get another.
We rang in 2010 with Matt & Lynde and our skydiving friends. I faded rather quickly after midnight and was thankful for the new truck already when I could just go curl up in the back seat until Cameron, Matt and Lynde were ready to leave.
New Year's Day has become a bit of a tradition for Cameron and me. For 6 years we have watched each extended version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy on DVD. This started back in our apartment in Fremont and has commenced every New Year since. One year we even blew up the airmattress so we could be completely comfortable and relaxed. So after sleeping in New Year's Day morning and after all the Holiday decor was packed up and put away, we settled in for our marathon. We watched the first two that night and the last DVD the next evening.
We're looking forward to what 2010 has in store for us. We're already prepping for little Tulle's arrival, and will soon begin preparations for London. In some ways I hope that is all 2010 has in store for us, because I see a puppy and baby being a lot.
