Christmas Card 2009

Christmas 2009­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

Tis the week before Christmas and lines are slow;
The fed raised the rates at the Gov. P.O.
As the stamp prices soar the walls go bare
As more and more families send Christmas e-mail-air.

For us this year passed many momentous occasions
Each more outrageous and with more fascination.
…Month #1 we had Granddad in town;
No snow to show so Granddad had to go.
Took Tyler on a trip to the big city from small town
The A-T-L aquarium was one to astound.

Soon after, a Spring break trip to Myrtle Beach!
with Grandma and Grandpa S. we leached!

In June our 4 year ticker came.
A sound reminder of our love and Scott’s game.

For our home this year, a brand new bathroom.
No more avocado green, mold, and gloom.

Tyler, of course, we cannot keep up.
From nursing to the bottle to the sippy cup.
From just steps to a straight out sprint;
This kid can hit a ball, throw, bunt and kick!
His words have escalated from one or two;
He now converses, shakes hands and hugs you.

No year complete without a wedding or two;
Jenny sealed the deal and made Aunt Jenny for real!
With Tyler the ring bearer all was well
Until someone let Scott toast them swell.

Down south we love to get visitors to see;
And this year Cousin Jimmy came to see me!
Even Aunt Carla and Uncle Chuck made it by
So we cleaned up the house and she whipped out a pie!

Soon after, off to Iowa I went
With Tyler, his 5th free ride on a Jet!
Great Grandma threw Tyler a GREAT BIRTHDAY PARTY!
With Fire trucks and friends he turned two alrighty.

No turkeys were spared for Thanksgiving this year.
From Iowa, Grandma and Granddad A. came here.

….and this just in COMING SOON! COMING SOON!
Tyler in May will be a big brother…KABOOM!

This year we are spending Christmas in Savannah
With our new tree, gifts, and Tyler might seek Santa
The forecast is 64 degrees and a chance of rain…oh boy
Not like the white Christmas many of you will enjoy.

We hope your year has been as blessed as ours has been.
Remember the true reason for the season.
God sent His son for YOU!
Cherish this gift and share it with a few!

Merry Christmas!

Scott, Carrie, and Tyler
(and Chance, the cat)
