Best of 2009

I am determined to complete Gwen Bell's Best of 2009 questions - I hope it doesn't take me all of 2010!
December 20 - New person. She came into your life and turned it upside down. He went out of his way to provide incredible customer service. Who is your unsung hero of 2009?
We welcomed two new grandsons into our family this year and while not turning our world upside down - yet! - they have definitely won our hearts already. 
 I saw Samuel twice in his first  3 months, which was great, but we are definitely feeling overdue for some time with him again.  Hopefully Melinda and Tyler will come to visit this spring and Samuel will get to meet all of his Alberta family.   It was wonderful to watch him opening Christmas presents via Skype on Christmas morning.  
Blake arrived while I was in Nova Scotia!  I had this feeling that might happen when I decided to go!  It is marvelous getting to see him and cuddle often.  He does this little thing where he lays his head on your chest and kind of burrows right in.  It's such a sweet cuddly thing - I love it!  
Both boys are starting to squirm and move around, getting up on their knees and rocking, rolling over and reaching for things.  By summer time we could be in for a crew of little men on the move, walking around and exploring.  I can just imagine what the next years will bring - tons of adventure and many boy games, I'm sure!

  1. It has been so wonderful to have both boys added to the family. I can't wait for a visit in May and time with everyone. We miss you lots. Big hugs from the three of us.
