Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010...

Whew! 2009 has been quite a year! We've had so much fun with our family and friends. Here is a look back at some of the things we did this year...


Payton attended Camp War Eagle with his friend J.J.

His basketball team won the league championship. Go Stingers!

Our little lady turned 2 years old!


Payton graduated from 5th grade (with Presidential honors for maintaining straight A's all 6 years) and moved on to middle school.

P-Dub got his braces on.

Played 7 on 7 football during the summer league.

Go blue!


Had lots of fun in the sun during our trip to Hawaii.

Where we went to John and Beth's beautiful wedding.

And enjoyed lots of family adventures including zip lining through the rain forest.

(Aawww, they sure do love each other!)

Ryan floated, and kayaked, and boatballed and then did it all some more!

Went on some family float trips.

Like father, like daughter.

Spent lots of time with good friends.

Ate a lot, talked a lot.

Laughed with the ladies.

Went on girl's trips.

Dressed up in ridiculous outfits all in the name of fun.

Celebrated the holidays with friends and family.

Ate way too much Japanese food (that girl LOVES her miso soup!)

Payton's football team had an (almost) undefeated season and won the city championship. Go Yellowjackets!

Spent lots of time with Nanna and Poppie.

Celebrated Halloween together.

Took Elyse on her first fishing trip.

And for her first haircut.

Elyse got to spend lots of time with her BFF, Kynzie.

Picked pumpkins at the pumpkin patch (and even made it on the local news).

Said goodbye to some good friends. (sniff. sniff.) We love you Douglas family!

Worked, worked, and worked some more... (heehee, can't you tell from the pic - my team works hard, but we play hard too)

Went on a ski trip to Breckenridge with Nanna and Poppie. Elyse skied for the first time (with Poppie's help) and Payton snowboarded for the first time.


And of course... Payton qualified for the Junior Olympics in both the 100m dash and the high jump.

We have had an amazing year! We are so, so blessed to have had so many opportunities and fun times in 2009. Can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for us!
