Happy New Year!

We've made it into the new year, only 16 hours behind Sydney! We've starting 2008 in the dark ages as we now cool our food with dry ice (the fridge is bung and can't be fixed until at least Friday) but on the same day we reduced our car insurance to $950 for 6 months (vs paying the same amount per month).

In 2007 we spent 8 months, 3 weeks and 3 days in the US and I'll leave you to calculate how many days we spent in Oz (these seem so long ago). Here are some of the highlights of the past year:

  • January - Lunch at Kobe Jones with Kel and Lucy on a gorgeous Sydney day

  • February - Finishing the backyard garden and deck

  • March - Lucy's baptism and our last pizza party in Sutherland

  • April - Moving day (no more packing or sorting or stressing)

  • May - Lucy's first birthday in Airlie gardens

  • June - Long weekend in Charleston SC learning to cook gumbo

  • July - Watching mom's taste vegemite for the first time

  • August - Smelling the roses in our garden

  • September - Watching Federer win his 4th US open in NYC

  • October - A week in Asheville NC to see the Fall colours

  • November - Enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with our new church family

  • December - Eating at our third revolving restaurant (this time Seattle)

that lunch also made my highlight reel - as well as a very special dinner that I often think back on as well. hope 2008 is full of more highlights, surprises and a face to face visit.

I thought a highlight in September might be seeing your favourite sister?
