Happy New Year 2010

Celebrating the East Coast New Year! (9pm PT)

Not sure we'll make it to midnight...

Midnight on the West Coast...Happy New Year Big Boy!

 How is it possible that it is not only the start of a new year but also another decade!!!!  My memories of it turning 2000 are much too vivid for it to now be 2010!!!!  Yikes, can we all please slow down a bit.  My mind has been full today…reflecting on all that happened in 2009, trying hard not to worry about what is to come in 2010 and wishing I were with my oldest brother and his family in Indy as they celebrate the wedding of my niece Stefanie.  ‘Just got this pic sent to me from the reception that’s happening right now!!!…Technology is pretty cool:

Father of the Bride

Again I say “Slow down…life is happening much too fast!” 

The theme around our household today has been roses and football.  I woke this morning to breakfast in bed complete with one of Rolf’s fresh cut roses just in time to watch the Rose Parade on t.v.  Rudy and I watched the Rose Parade last year in his hospital room but I think he liked this year’s view a little better.

Yum, yum

Daddy's roses are prettier than the ones on t.v.

Everyone ended up in mom and dad's bed for the parade!

Once the parade ended, football was next on the agenda…the Capitol One bowl, the Rose bowl possibly the Sugar bowl a little later.  Rolf and Max had a very special treat with a quick trip to El Paso Wednesday and Thursday to see Stanford play in the Sun Bowl thanks to our best man Ruben (we chose wisely!).  Max was definitely in heaven…

Super Fan!

And so, Wilson made it home safely from his church youth group trip, Rolf & Max made it home from the game and we all enjoyed New Year’s Eve at home under one roof over a piping hot plate of Olivia’s cheesiest macaroni & cheese she made with the help of her new cookbook.  A great start to the new year…

Today is also Rudy’s 15-month birthday…we continue to cherish each milestone!

    Thank you so much, Rolf and Trish for sharing your family with us over the past 15 months. It has been a wild ride….scary at some times, joy flowing over at others, and filled with belly laughs, as well. May God continue to bless the Geylings in every day to come!

  13. Diana Says:

    Omigosh, what a great set of pictures! Thanks so much for posting each one. Happy New Year to all of you – may God’s goodness and grace continue to uphold you as we move through 2010. I have to say that the one of Rudy looking overwhelmed by his proud siblings just cracked me up – there are days when I feel just EXACTLY like that…”say what??? Back off, guys, and give me some space to breathe here”…love it, love it. SO grateful for this nice long stretch without surgery, without hospital stays – blessings as you wait for that next shoe to drop.

  14. Susie Says:

    Very cool, Maxi! That sounds like an awesome trip. One day hopefully I will get to watch you play football again!

    Love you all and Happy New Year!
    Susie
