Welcoming 2010

(30 weeks pregnant, banging pots and pans to welcome the new year)

This is the "white house". We lived here for the first 2 years of our marriage. This house holds a very special place in our hearts. It was here that we began our lives together. We moved in because of the charm that a house build in 1890 has, but loved it because of the memories made here. We weren't initially aware that the three other couples that shared the house would become lifelong friends, the kind that you can't find just anywhere.

For the third year in a row, we reunited the white house gang for a New Years Eve party. Although we live across the country from eachother now, it is always just like the good old days when we get together.

Chase, "Boonie" and Jordan are the biggest goofballs

Jenny and Jude, me and baby boy, Jenn and Carter

This is the first time we've gotten together that kids were in the picture!

I wish that my computer wasn't packed up in storage because I would love to put up a bunch of pictures of the white house gang over the years. The only couple that is missing is Chelsi and Dave Firmage who were in Disney Land during this party. We really missed you guys!!

Driving home from Logan on Saturday, I got teary eyed as Chase and I talked about how special these friends are. We shared such a special time of life together and had so much fun over the years. We love you guys!

Oh we love you too! It is always so fun getting together. And every time we do it's like we've never been apart. Can't wait for your little guy to be here too!

We were SOO sad to miss out on the New Year's get together! We had to have a moment of silence in the park when the new year arrived. :) Let's find another excuse to get together SOON! Hopefully it's ok to still hang out even though we're now the only ones without a baby nearby! ;) Love you guys!
