Best of 2009

I've been thinking of the Best of.... for quite awhile now and feel I'm ready to take a stab at a few of these... So here goes.

Best trip of 2009 - Hands down goes to "Roadtrip - the Incredible Journey (or 6500 miles with just the two of us!) We visited 5 states
and Canada! Golly, we are so blessed and the trip was amazing!

Best Restaurant Moment of 2009
A steakhouse in Butte, Montana. Our son proposed to his girlfriend after we finished a fantastic dinner!! What a privilege to be there. Thanks for the great food AND memories! By the way, try MacKenzie River Pizza Company if you're ever in Butte, Montana! Fantastic!
Best Book of 2009 - Can I choose two?!?! Please, please! I even polled my sister in law to see if she could help me break the tie, but she had the very same answers I did! So I am declaring it a dead heat! The Help by Kathryn Stockett and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Two very different books with incredible voice!! They sucked me in from page 1. They are real winners!!

Best Night Out
of 2009 - Las Vegas with all of my kiddos!! A night on the strip with all of them was a highlight. Fun, mesmerizing; like Disneyland for very big people....just something to be experienced. We had a blast!! We were there for a son's wedding so we were all happy and jolly and ready for fun!

Best Album of 2009 - Rob Thomas' Cradlesong. As a matter of fact I'll listen to anything he sings! Can someone load up my iPod please?!?!

Best Memory of 2009 - A three way for sure...three weddings! It took my breath away as we added to our some ways it felt like childbirth all over again. The outcome is remarkably sweet and I cherish these new members of our family!

The year isn't quite over yet...there's more to enjoy, remember, and record.
