When I think about the past year I mostly remember the not-so-great things, but after looking back through the thousands of pictures we took, it turns out we had a really great year. Here are just a few of our highlights in 2009. We can not wait to see what else 2010 has in store for us, as I know already it is shaping up to be an exciting year with Baby Stafford on the way!
We rung in the New Year with new friends at Maggiano’s. We ran our first race of 2009 as Expecting Parents! We’ll always miss our first little Peanut.We celebrated Ben’s 29th Birthday at the ‘Canes game.
