January- I can't remember that far away. But I'm pretty sure it was cold and icy. So I was probably sad.
February- I bought my first car. Well, its not my first car, but its my first car that I bought. Yes, Udy was a trooper. And he handled snow very well. But he did not handle starting, and many other things that are expected of cars. And Uditty, well not quite as good in snow. But who really cares when there are heated seats?
March- I housesat and dogsat a dog that shed more than any other dog I've ever met. Also, this dog liked to sleep on the bed with me, which is fine because it was a strange house. However, this dog fell off the bed when it was sleeping and sounded like a sack of potatoes when it hit the floor. And not only that, but then it didnt move. So of course I thought, "crap! the dog died!" But it was alive, just lazy. So I picked up the 70 some pound potatoe sack and put it back on the bed. Longer story short...the dog fell on the floor again later that same night.
May-Malachi and I went to the Kalahari water park with Taumi and Stephen. Pretty darn fun, but also quite cold! And I even went on a slide without a raft, which I typically am not a fan of.
June- Malachi and I participated in Relay for Life for the first time. I walked for the cure, but specifically for my grandma who is a survivor. And Malachi and I walked for a very very very long time. We were definitely ready for bed when we done, and we didnt even walk until the finish. The same day as the walk, I turned 25. Malachi bought me tickets to A Midsummer Nights Dream, which I fell in love with, at the new Guthrie. That was a great birthday gift!
Things we DID do in 2008:
After crashing a wedding and walking up to locked doors a couple times, we FINALLY made it into the Basilica. It was pretty cool, but a little too quiet. It would be cool to see a concert or something there.
We hit up the Luxury home tour and werent impressed with the lack of yard space, but I could get used to living in one of those houses.
We traveled up north and toured the Glensheen mansion. It's so cool, but I think my favorite part was just hanging out with my parents and Malachi. Oh, and experiencing very very cold water.
As previously mentioned, we went to a water park, the Kalahari to be exact.
Yes, we wanted to stuff our mouths with grapes and see how many we could fit. I think it was 15 each. And I'm suprised that we fit the same amount.
We made snow angels. That was an easy one. (however, we didnt get a picture of it, but this is from the same day)
We made cookies, sugar/dairy free. And they were really crumbly. Must perfect recipe.
Ah, who could ever forget the bike trail that nearly killed Malachi and I? Maybe these pictures will refresh your memories.
And so maybe we didn't build a snowman, but the snow elephant was awesome!
Things we failed to accomplish in 2008:
- Lay out under stars (unless you count camping, but thats not what we meant)
- Camp near lake superior
- Play music together
- Ride horses
- Morel mushroom hunt
- Finish bible
- Horse polo classic
- Herman monument
- Tennis (I honestly cannot believe we never got around to this)
- Christian concert
- Learn a dance
Ya, so we did pretty bad. But I've got a good feeling about 2009. I think its gonna be a great year! And our list of 24 things to do is all ready to go and be done. And I'm even excited about my New Years Resolutions! I hope everyone had fun bringing in the New Year!
