Thanks for the blessings of 2009

 Granpa and Theo on Christmas Eve

Christmas 2009 has passed on into history.  It is time to take a look at what the year was like and what we hope for in the coming year.  Though Christmas is gone for another year, I just have to say that toddlers have so much fun with the simplicities of life. In the following photo, Theo thought it much more fun to play with the wrappings that came off his gifts than the gifts themselves - so fun to watch him! 

Our family had a wonderful 2009 with all of the planning that went on for Sarah and Corey's wedding.  It was an exciting time and the wedding was just the best - we are so happy to see our Sarah so happy with the love of her life.  Corey and Sarah are just the best together like Rebecca & Tyler are a great couple together.  They are blessed and we as their parents are blessed to see them well married and so happy.

Added to the pleasure of it all is our little Theo (has his own blog entitled "Theodorable") who was born September 2008.  Theo has just brought so much joy into all of our lives.  It is fun to see him grow on all fronts.  He is a smart little boy and at fifteen months old he is already into teasing his Mémère (grandmother).  I just love it.

Yes, we have had our ups and downs over the years  but I choose to look at all of the wonderful things we shared with our family and friends.  God has been good to us and we look forward to a great 2010.

I decided some time ago that life is too short to focus on the difficulties of life.  They present themselves and all we can do is work through them one day at a time.  In fact, they make us stronger as we move through life.  All that matters are those wonderful situations, days and events that God gifts us with:  family, children, grandchildren, friends...  and to be able to wake up each morning and say "hey this will be a great day!"  Each and every day is a gift - enjoy it and make it the best you can in the coming year.

Note:  The photos were taken by our son-in-law Corey 
who is quickly becoming the family photographer.

Hi Lucie, Little Theo looks so adorable. It's not diffult to understand that you are fond of him. I bet he will grow into a fine young man. All the best to you and your family in 2010! Martine
