2008 has been a great year. There have been a lot of changes in 2008. We've moved. I've begun working from home. Marc graduated. One of our best friends is engaged. Kids have started school. We've met great people who have come to mean a lot to us. Exciting ideas have begun to take shape. We are looking forward to 2009, that's for sure!!

As we've come into the holiday season (the favorite time of the year around this house), we really have started to count our blessings. We have been very fortunate this year to be able to spend time with each other and all our loved ones. Hopefully, in 2009 we can spend even more time with everyone.

So, the Shea's will begin our holiday traditions. Getting a turkey that is way too big for a family of five, stuffing it, and throwing on all the yummy sides. Going shopping in secret to help Santa out. Going through our clothes and toys to donate whatever we can to people who need it more than we do. This is the greatest time of year and we hope to share as much love and laughter as possible with all of our family, old friends, and new friends (all of whom mean so much to us).
