Top Ten Holiday Moments

Happy Holidays! What a great year it has been, so much to celebrate, so much to be thankful for, so much to share with you! Here are the top ten holiday moments for our family...hope your top ten are just as delightful!

Drum roll please...

Number 10: Christmas morning bathroom construction project...almost done. Yes, I know we started it on Labor Day, but we just can't stop the project (or should I say finish?!)

Number 9: Brandy slushes! Shelly's family tradition of brandy slushes throughout the holiday season. Yum!

Number 8: Baking cookies and delivering to our neighbors and friends!

Number 7: Our President revoked Don't Ask, Don't Tell!

Number 6: Healthy minds and bodies!

Number 5: Welcoming back the light with a lunar eclipse!

Number 4: Weekend trip to the coast and L's first trip to the aquarium!

Number 3: Delicious holiday fare made by David with love (and eaten with love from the rest of us!)

Number 2:
Celebrating the holiday season with Aunt Jenn who is visiting us all the way from snowy and cold Vermont!

And the Number 1 Holiday Moment of 2010 is....

Our Adoption is finalized! Lilleth Mina Ponder is official!

We got word from our lawyer and the adoption agency that our adoption was finalized on December 7th! We received our certificate and the Judge's signature on Christmas Eve...a wonderful gift!

I hope that your holidays are filled with peace and joy!
