Brief rundown of our 2008

Welcome to our friends and family who have just learned about our blog through the newsletter! Thought we'd post some pics of happenings throughout the past year.
January and February usually don't get much camera action as we're generally busy and consumed at work. We have our Nationals in Vegas in February - maybe we'll actually get a pic of Tyler and I at work together this year :)

Last February I turned 30 (wo-hoo, I'm a big girl now!). My mom and one of my sisters works with us in Vegas, and my bday was the day following our last day of work, so had a bday cake for me :) Here's a pic of My mom, Tyler and I at some point that day.
Tyler followed up with two surprise parties: one with friends and family at Chevy's...

...another with more family at my mom's. Shortly after came Easter...

Cousin Nelly and our new cousin Raul were married

(fast forward to December; and Raul is the one that saved us from weeks of painting :) Yeah, him!)

Then came Tyler's bday and a small gathering at our favorite: Las Casuelas

and Lita's bday

BBQ at Brent and Megan's when Uncle John was in town...

Cousin Caty's graduation.

4th of July

Our mini vaca/meet up with Thomas & Steph in Anaheim ...our first time to Disneyland together...Justin's first time in Cali and Disney...

...and one of my highlights of the year - our trip to Dodger Stadium...

of course the cruise (pics already posted here). This was the point where we began to post photos here on our blog ... so we'll skip through to more photos/gatherings that have not yet been posted :)
