*~Happy New Year's Eve~*
Wow, this is the last day of '09, quite sad once you think about it. 2009 was very eventful filled with deaths, births, new friends, old friends, and surgeries. We hope everyone has had a wonderful year and enjoyed every minute of it, through the ups and the downs. This year we thought that we would do another re-cap blog to end the year with, since last year everyone thought it was a grr-eat idea! Well January was a very-uhm-interesting month. On the 6th Jakoby Raymond was born (BTW: last years re-cap we guessed he would be born on the 5th! I guess we were one day early, but still mommy's aunt was in labor then!) Then on January 14th TK won DOTD, and also celebrated her very first birthday! February was the same as last year, not very eventful. March was filled with A LOT of birthdays, as always, including mommy's on the 5th! April was filled with lots of treats from Easter and a birthday on Easter as well. Duke celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 23rd. In June and throughout the summer we had many bonfires and plenty of camping trips. :) July, was filled with a 2nd anniversary on the 7th and two birthdays on the 18th, one of those birthdays being Sadie's 6th! In August Sadie was diagnosed with Pyometra, a deadly uterine infection, but luckily we found it in time and it was fixed with an emergency spay. Unfortunately she did have to spend 2 days at the vets and now she HATES going back into the rooms with fear she will have to be left there again, it was well worth it though because otherwise she wouldn't be here today. Soon after she was on the way to recovery, with the help of all her DC friends and her family as well. September was very uneventful. October, we received yet another little human cousin, Riley Wayne, born on the 16th. Then we had a birthday on the 18th and of course Howl-O-Ween came shortly after. November we had a birthday. December, Sadie receieved her 3,000th vote, from JJ. (while looking back at past blogs we discovered that on 1/10/09 she recieved her 900th vote from Takoda)-that's a lot of votes! 2,000+ in 2009 alone! TK now has over 1,000 votes and Duke is still at 400 something. But we couldn't have made all those votes without the help of our wonderful DC friends! Thanks you guys! We had a WONDERFUL Christmas, filled with lots of family time, presents to open, treats to eat, and playtime. :) All in all 2009 was a pretty good year. Hopefully '10 will be even better and filled with lots of new friends and experiences! Already we can see that 2010 is starting off with a BANG! TK will be running for DOTM Jan. '10, so please vote for her, and Duke is running for DOTD January 5th, for a possible win on the 6th. Jeez, it looks like there is a busy year ahead of us! Can't wait to find out what else is in store for us and our DC friends. So let's say a sad goodbye to 2009, but greet 2010 with great joy! Good luck to everyone for the 2010 New Year!
Best Wishes, Bailey Girl
