At any rate, it does sum up most of the things in a fair nutshell. We lost two beloved pets over the past year (Sydney & Oliver), but we gained one too (Jack). My daughter was able to meet one of her favorite actresses (Jeannette McCurdy), she also earned her black belt in Choi Kwang Do. As a family, we went on our first cruise (loved it!) and saw the final NASA shuttle launch. With all of that, my nephew was Christened this past year and turned 1.
Despite all the problems/issues we may have had, when you look at the highlights, it was all good.
