Christmas 2009 Newsletter
Bill and I have had a wonderful 2009 and look forward to the exciting adventures of 2010!
Bill and I rang in 2009 in Leavenworth, WA with some friends. We enjoyed the German Christmas town, great food, shopping, and skiing at Steven’s Pass. This is were I decided skiing and snowboarding are not for me, but we all had a great time.
After living in downtown Seattle in a 787 square foot apartment for two years we decided to rent a townhouse in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard. We have really loved living in Ballard and being able to walk to the grocery store, coffee shops, restaurants and a movie theater. We are really looking forward to buying a house in the next several months in Seattle.
In May, Bill and I went to Victoria, Canada for a long weekend to attend Bill’s Rotary regional conference. What an amazing city with beautiful buildings, flowers, shops and food! I was able to learn a lot about Rotary and was really glad we attended this year.
Bill and I were blessed to visit family and friends in Terre Haute, Indiana for a week in July. We enjoyed hanging out with everyone. Our parents were also able to visit a couple times this year so that was a true blessing to have them here, were we always spend time with great laugher and food.
As we quickly approach 2010 Bill and I are extremely excited to let you know that we are expecting our first baby May 20, 2010. God as truly blessed us. I will be leaving my job at Big Brothers Big Sisters in March to be a stay at home mommy. Bill continues to love Amazon where he stays very busy on a variety of projects. I am very proud of him and admire his hard work and determination.
We hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday! Many Blessings,
Bill, Sara, and Baby Bagel Nagel
