Merry Christmas: Love, The Bowdens...

It's finally finished! This year's Christmas card...

It's a simple theme, featuring some highlights of the past year. For those of you that have been following our online musings, you'll already be familar with some of the items, but if not, here are some details behind the list...

9 Simple Pleasures from 2009:

1: Taking a deep breath of that New Car Smell.
The new baby has had it's share of ups and downs, but we love it.

2: Being the youngest people at a Mardi Gras celebration.
Those "Villagers" really know how to party!

3: 500 Kids singing "Livin' on a Prayer".
It's hard to choose a highlight of Young Life camp but tons of high-schoolers belting out a classic like this ranks pretty high on the list.

4: Getting up close and personal with a real live cactus.
Dustin has his first out west experience!

5: 6AM pull-ups
And sit-ups, and dead lifts, and lunges, and........

6: Riding roller coasters 'til we got dizzy.
Turns out six coasters is my back-to-back limit. (someone else's *cough*dustin*cough* is five).

7: Open mic night performances.
Overcoming fears and wowing the crowd.

8: Challenging each other to escalator races.
So steep!

9: Getting brain freezes from road trip slushies.

So there you have it.....the stories behind the soundbytes.
Merry Christmas!
