Another year has come and gone and what a year it's been! 2008 was full of blessings. It started off on a high note when we found out we were expecting a baby on January 5th. In April we found out our little blessing was a boy and couldn't have been more thrilled. I started my new job as a federal investigator in June, and Phil had his one year anniversary of his employment with the Warrenton Police department in July.
In July, Natalie through me a beautiful baby shower in honor of our impending bundle of joy and we were so blessed to have so many of our family members and friends make the trip to Fredericksburg to celebrate with us. After one long hot summer our beautiful baby boy Philip was born on September 4th--one of the greatest days of our lives for sure! I took 3 months off from work after his birth and thoroughly enjoyed every moment I had at home, getting to know my new son.
In November we began house hunting and on December 15th we closed on our very first home! We bought a beautiful house in a family-oriented neighborhood. We moved in on December 20th and were able to spend our first Christmas as a family of 3 in our first home!
Now as we say goodbye to this year in which we experienced so much joy, we look forward to the happiness and surprises that 2009 is sure to bring!
We wish you all much love and happiness in 2009! Happy New Year!
