Top 10 for 2008

I thought it would be fun to share our families Top 10 for the Year. I asked the children what their tops were for 2008. It was funny because Brooke just kept saying "stay in a hotel and swimming", I don't remember doing that. She definitely has her favorite things. As for the rest of the group this is what we came up with:

1. Trip out to Utah to see their cousins, this was the kids #1.
2. David getting baptized by his older brother Nate.
3. Brinli & David serving on student council.
4. Brooke became a teenager.
5. Grandma and Grandpa Wood returned from a 1 year, teaching English, assignment in China.
6. Mike (younger brother) found the woman of his dreams and got married in the Logan Temple.
7. Nate set multiple weight lifting records in High School.
8. Daymon was asked to be the Session Director for the EFY at BYU Idaho and we got to go together. Daymon and I loved this.
9. Grandpa, Trav & Jaxson's visit from Utah.
10. Finding a Home to call our own.

We look forward to a great 2009 and hope that there will be many more visits this year from all of our dear family and friends. Our door is always open!

I would love to be able to come visit you!!!! Can you please tell people to start buying our frames so that I can fly out?!?! I have to agree with the kids #1! That is one of the highlighs of our year as well! I passed your old house on 4th north today on the way home from Kent and Laureen's! Those were the days huh!! Do the words "SING", and "jelly donut" ring any bells!!hehe

Whoohooo! Yeah! Go Number One! That other stuff's pretty cool too, I guess. :) My mind is on baptisms right now, and I had no idea Nate baptized David. These blogs are the best, because I know these things now. One more thing- I hear your house is amazing, so quit being humble and calling it a fixer upper!

You guys had a great year, even amidst all the bumps along the way. You are wonderful!

Oh, and Brooke cracks me up. :) It's always the pool, isn't it? It doesn't seem to matter what else we do or see, it's always the pool they look forward to and remember!
