Goodbye to 2007 and Hello 2008

Just a smattering of pics of the events of 2007

Well, I can't get the slide show to work so I'll have to settle for posting the link to it. Maybe people like that better anyway. 2007 was a good year. I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

Looking ahead to 2008, here are a few things that we're looking forward to.

  • In Feb. we will travel to Washington state to visit Brian's family and celebrate his dad's 80th birthday.
  • In March we travel to Ireland!
  • In June Cody will graduate from Miami University and Logan will graduate from Fairfield High School and Butler Tech's criminal justice program.
  • In June Brian and I will celebrate 25 years of marriage!
  • In July Brian will travel to Haiti on a mission trip
  • In August Amber will take another trip to Pine Ridge Reservation
  • Backpacks for Pine Ridge will be delivering backpacks to 3 villages this year!
  • In August Rezonate '08 will be the first community-wide benefit concert for Backpacks for Pine Ridge
  • Logan will start college

Happy New Year to you and Brian! Hope you have a great 2008. You are one of my heroes.

my definition of heroe: someone who does something to make a positive change rather than just thinking its a good idea to do something therefore inspiring others to do something too
