~Anne Hope will learn to ride a 2-wheelershe practiced, but went back to the comfort of training wheels
~The Lions will win 9 games in '09were we dreaming when we wrote these?

~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

~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!
