jen's top 10: year in review

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair..."

And so he wrote the prologue to my twenty ten. Ol' Chuck Dickens really knew what he was talking about didn't he?

This past year proved to be the ultimate pendulum of emotion and experience.  The year I hope to never repeat, but with personal growth I wish to never trade. It was the year of deepening roots.

But instead of dwelling on heavy things, today I choose to focus on the wonderful events that brought me happiness this year. Because all things have it's equal and opposite reaction {thank you Newton}, 2010 had equal amounts of joy.

Without further adieu:

10. Welcoming 2 new nephews into the world and the announcement of another N grandchild. {Fertility Gods, you may now send another one to us ok? Kthanksbye.}

9. Coming in close contact with moose, naked men, and all manor of wild beasts.

8. Frequent days spent at the pool as a family due to Deek's 'free time'. aka unemployment

7. Adding Keeta to the family. This could also fall under the 'Top 10 Worst Things About 2010.'

6. Moving to the wilderness.

5. We have a graduate!

 4. Disney Land & Newport Beach with the N clan.

3. Watching Reese learn how to sit, crawl, walk, talk, discover, etc..

2. Deek got a job!!!

1. Did I mention Deek got a job? Oh yeah, and it just happens to be right up his dream job alley. Hallelujah!

See? Much to love about this past year. It was a roughy but a goodie. Here's to hoping {and crossing my fingers, and blowing pixie dust, and rubbing the lucky rabbit foot} this next one is even better.

Cheers to the New Year!
