Patterson Top Ten 2008

Our family does a top 10 list every year on our Christmas card. We really have a lot of fun with it. I thought I would post it to share with our local friends, and those we don't send a Christmas card to. Sorry if I don't send you a card...if you send us one, you will be on the list forever :)

Top 10 things that happened to the Patterson family in 2008…

10. For the first time ever we have a “Top 10” that doesn’t include something about a new baby.
9. We bought season tickets to Silver Dollar City and discovered that you can have a lot of fun close to home. Abbott now eats all his vegetables in order to fulfill his dream of being tall enough to ride the Barn Swing.
8. Anna started preschool and dance class. She is the most beautiful (but not necessarily the most graceful) ballerina.
7. Abbott lost his first teeth…and Adeline finally got some.
6. Aiden turned 8 and was baptized! He also started piano lessons and Cub Scouts (and his Den Leader is a babe!)
5. Aubrey became a Den Leader, a runner and a blogger…check us out at
4. Our sweet, tiny Adeline has earned a reputation as a bully at the gym childcare…at home we call her “mean-streak”.
3. Aiden and Abbott were the coolest Transformers for Halloween. See #5 to watch them transform!
2. Aaron started a new job at Walmart and now drives a shiny, black Silverado. He was not too sad about losing the Nestle mini-van. The rest of the family, however, is still mourning the loss of the free chocolate.
1. Aaron and Aubrey will celebrate their 10 year anniversary on December 31st…somewhere in the Caribbean!
