My "Top 5" of 2009

My friend Pinky did this on her blog and I thought it was such a neat idea.
I haven't done nearly the amount of layouts I had planned for this year so there isn't a ton to choose from but here are MY personal "Top 5".

Layout of my best friend Carli & I.
BFF's since we were twelve. OMG, 23 years now. WOW!
Still love her more than anyone but my hubby and son. She rocks!

My little guy in pool water for the first time.
I won a contest on Noel C's blog for this layout :)

I just love the color combo on this. And those fat lime green Thickers are to die for! LOL

This one was a re-do of an old layout.
As you can see Caleb is crying in the pics so I hesitated scrapping them but realized you gotta scrap the good AND the bad, right?

A rare picture of my little guy and I.
I love this kid so much. He's my world :)

Thanks for looking! I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve.

2009 was a horrible year for us.
Let's see:
We tried to avoid it but ended up having to file bankruptcy.
Hubby lost his job and now we are on unemployment which is a third of his former salary.
We found out Caleb probably has Autism. Most likely Asperger's.
The school board here made some crazy changes.. we can't stay in this city. Caleb will not get a good education if we do.
Oh yeah! There's a crazy democrat in office. That should have given me a clue this would be a bad year! LOL

I am SO looking forward to 2010:
My new niece is going to arrive very soon. I can't wait to meet her!
We are definitely moving out of this area. More than likely to Kansas City. Which will mean lots of cousin time for Caleb and oh my God, a BABYSITTER for DATES for Doug and I. WHOO HOO!!! :)
With that move we will be moving to a better school system with early intervention for Caleb.
And I'll finally get to meet one of my awesome scrappy internet friends, Tracy. I can't wait!

I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve!
I welcome 2010 with open arms!!! :)
