Best of 2009

December 14 - Rush - What gave you the biggest thrill this year? - Walking through Times Square in New York City was an incredible experience.  I kept thinking "Wow - this is really it - this is what everyone talks about - this is the Big Apple!"  It was more vibrant, interesting, colorful, surreal than I ever imagined. And it was really cool :))

December 15 - Best packaging - our new grandsons, Samuel and Blake, came packaged as the sweetest little guys.  Perfect from the top of their heads to the bottoms of those tiny toes, we are so blessed by their presence in our family!

December 16 - Tea of the year - Chai Masala, brewed at home.  And a close second would be the fruit tea that I brought home from the Czech Republic - it's got chunks of dried apple, oranges and spices and is so delicious.  I should have brought more home with me.


  1. I love that photo! I forget sometimes how much we did/saw while you were here. It was a very fun evening at the Top of the Rock, celebrating Ty's birthday and walking through Times Square. You should see it this time of year. It's even more crowded than the summer (hard to believe, I know)!
    These are great little snippets of your year, your favourites, new discoveries, adventures and events. Looking forward to more.

  2. that's exactly how i felt in NYC too!
