2009: Its a Wrap

Its been two months since our last blog update and boy have we been busy. Tyson is growing before our eyes and is changing like the seasons. We enjoyed the fall season and spent a lot of time outside. Nick and I didn't enjoy the leaves as much as Tyson, considering we didn't realize our leaf blower had a VACUUM until we were almost about a workout!

For the month of October, I got crafty and made his Halloween costume. To Nick's demise, I made him the cutest little puppy. Daddy would have much rather he be a superhero, but we have plenty of time for that in the years to come. Year one is the only year you can get away with a puppy costume for a boy, and I took full advantage of it. Hey, what can I say? It turned out pretty good.
We were so looking forward to Tyson's first Christmas, and now it has come and gone. I didn't get all of my decorations/lights up, but I gave it a good try. It was enough work just trying to keep him from pulling the tree down on himself.

Tyson had a photo op with Santa, but didn't seem very interested at all. Seeing all the kids excited about the jolly ol' Saint got me thinking. Are we gonna carry on the imaginary tale of the red and white clothed Kringle? Or will we be "those" parents that explain that mommy and daddy work hard to put presents under the tree and give to those less fortunate. Ummm...I'm thinking the latter. We'll see how it goes though.

With 2009 coming to a close, there's no better time to reflect on the year passing. I like to have a theme going into every new year. 2009 has been the "year of modification" for the Jones family. We await with anticipation 2010 and every blessing that lies on the other side of January 1st. Our prayer is that God will richly bless all of our family and friends and continue to guide us in the way that He would have us go. Peace, blessings, and Merry Christmas!
