There were so many more things that we have done that I didn't add. Over all, it has been the best and worst year yet of my life. I wont name the worst things because I dont want to focus on the negative things. I want to focus on the fact that it's a brand new year and we have a brand new start. We can determine our future by the decisions we make and by the way we act. Hopefully I choose all of it for the better. May you all have a fabulous new start on the year 2010!
