Every year we play a little game with our family and friends. We put our heads together in anticipation of what the new year will bring. A new game will start tomorrow, but for today let's see how we did on
predictions for 2009.
~Kevin will cry on Gavin’s first day of Kindergarten – depends on who you ask...that’s a close call
~Another great grandbaby for Kevin's grandma – yes, and another on the way
~Gibson will be the first of our kids to say “Mom” for his first word – finally one of my kids said mama first!
~Michelle Obama will wear a red dress for the inauguration – bummer, she chose yellow
~ Brad & Angelina will add to their family again (x2) – guess not
~Baby Boy Wojcik will be born on March 7 - Sweet Henry arrived on March 6
~ Gavin will learn how to read – He’s doin’ it!
~ Someone in the family will get a new job – Praise the Lord!!!
~Anne Hope will learn to ride a 2-wheeler – she practiced, but went back to the comfort of training wheels
~The Lions will win 9 games in '09 – were we dreaming when we wrote these?
~Kevin's extended family will celebrate an engagement – maybe New Year’s Eve? Katie’s family had 3 engagements and 2 weddings to celebrate in ’09 though.
~The Lions make the playoffs in '09 – sorry Kevy
~ Katie will cry when Anne Hope goes to preschool – didn’t even let Anne Hope go to preschool…
~ Gas will shoot to $5 a gallon – actually went down
~ President Obama will walk on water – well, yeah!
~The new great grand baby will NOT be from us – correct-o!
~Governor Granholm will let her hair grow out, thereby getting rid of the boy look - who knew you were so opinionated about hair fashion, Kev?
~ The Iraqi shoe thrower will get a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer - nope, he's in obscurity
~President Obama will heal the sick – of course
~ Michigan State will go to the Rose Bowl - bummer for the Spartans
~ Anne Hope will finally learn to "go on the potty" – thank goodness, 2 in cloth diapers would be really hard on our washing machine
~ Shine, by the Newsboys, will continue to be played as a great hit on JQ99 – you ask and you shall receive, now would you like to hear Big House?
~Granholm will continue to stun us with her economic decisions - true
~The Office will still be very popular, even though I totally don't get it - true
Those were our predictions.
Here are a few more taken from the January '09 comments.
From Mom & Dad:
~The Lions will waste their draft picks on another receiver - not this time, they got a quarterback
~The Shack will be made into a movie - not yet, but I'm sure it's in the works
~MI will raise gas taxes - no, thank goodness
~The American Idol winner will be a girl - not this year, the show featured strong male contestants and came down to a man on man finale.
From the Schweris:
~The Lions will only win one game - they've squeaked out 2 wins
~Someone will stop smoking - I hope so
From the Andersons:
~ For the first time since 2004, Pete & Amy will have a year free of car accidents - none that we heard about
~ Peyton will be walking by the end of February - think so, he walks like a champ now
~The Tigers will regroup and win The World Series - sorry Michigan
~Pete and Amy will FINALLY paint their house - and Kevin will do an amazing job helping us with the patio. :) The garage is painted & the patio looks great!
We hope you'll check back tomorrow to weigh in with your predictions for 2010!
