The Lee Family Top Ten of 2008

#10. Moving to our new house in January! You should come visit us!

#9. Watching Ellie start her career as a professional ballerina. She’s quite natural at it, and so stinkin’ adorable!

#8. Watching Olivia and Ellie be the best of friends…they adore each other and enjoy dressing up together (I mean, Ellie enjoys dressing up Olivia), sleeping in the same room, and cooking in their play kitchen.

#7. Spending most of the summer at our neighborhood pool, playing backyard baseball, and trying to keep cool (lots of popsicles!).

#6. Traveling to Alaska for vacation in August. Mike caught the fish of his dreams…a 215 lb. halibut! We enjoyed everything from the beach to picking wild strawberries, but most of all, enjoyed spending time with Papa & Grandma Midge (Jenn’s parents).

#5. Celebrating Ellie & Olivia’s birthdays together (Ellie turned 4 and Olivia turned 1!) Along with Olivia’s first birthday, she’s mastered many other firsts over the year…including first laugh, first crawl, first word (Papa), first food, first steps, and first favorite song (“Oh, Happy Day”).

#4. Celebrating our 7th anniversary in September…and being still so silly and so in love!

#3. Sending Ellie on her first date…to the “Winter Ball” with her daddy. She’s convinced she’s a real princess now since she went to a real ball!

#2. Spending lots of time trying to perfect the Lee Signature Four-Way Kiss.

#1. Being filled with joy as we look back over this last year and realize, through the high moments and rough patches, God is so faithful and all we have- and have done, is because of His unfailing goodness!

Merry Christmas to you and your family…and may you, too, remember God’s faithfulness as you look towards 2009!

What a great family you all are! Loved the pics. So you're not going to be almost neighbors anymore? :(

Without God's goodness, where would we be?

Wishing you a Blessed Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. You all are such a blessing. Love you guys!
