What do you think will happen in ’09? Add your list in the comment section. The more predictions, from friends & family, the better!


  1. OMG!!! I loved Kevin's predictions....especially the ones about Obama and Granholm. Has Kevin considered a career in comedy?

  2. He is a pretty funny guy...I think I often stifle his creative comedy, but he is in fully force here!

  3. Love the predictions! Might have to give this one a try, also love the charm cakes,so cute!! Happy New Year!

  4. These predictions came in from several different people:
    1) The Lions will waste their draft picks on another receiver.
    2) The Shack will be made into a movie
    3)Nick will meet someone and get engaged.
    4) MI will raise gas taxes
    5) Michelle Obama will be the center of a controversy
    6) Gibson's first word will be "dada"
    7)The American Idol winner will be a girl.

  5. Patrick predicts the Lions will win one game in the next season. I predict that someone will stop smoking and someone will get married.

  6. March 7th, huh? I'll go with it :)

  7. I'm so late to the game, but here are a few of mine:
    1. For the first time since 2004, Pete & Amy will have a year free of car accidents. (How sad is it we've had an accidents in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008? Yikes!)
    2. Peyton will be walking by the end of February.
    3. The Tigers will regroup and win The World Series.
    4. Pete and Amy will FINALLY paint their house - and Kevin will do an amazing job helping us with the patio. :)
    5. Gibson's first word will be "mama."
