The Year in Pictures

As another successful blog year comes to a close, let's take a look back at some of the most memorable images to grace The Dave & Kristen Show in 2009.

I took my turn reveling in the ineptitude of the Mets, this time manifested in their inability to design a halfway decent uniform patch. We know who got the last laugh though. Oh that's right, it was the Yankees.

After years of development with my friend Scott, I finally recorded the theory of The Compound, which explains where celebrities go after their 15 minutes of fame are up.

To celebrate the release of the new U2 album No Line On the Horizon, I completed a four part look at the band's entire discography. At least two readers were totally riveted.

I asked readers for input on a first birthday gift for Eddie, including a Tauntaun sleeping bag and this 30" Batman figure.

Things got geekier than usual around here as I celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Phantom Menace, recounting its build-up, release, and lasting impact.

Kristen and I went on an odyssey through our neighborhood in search of baby swings. Among our more interesting finds was this contraption.

Certain readers balked when I chose to post photos of a creepy doll and nothing of me or Kristen when documenting a trip to the family cabin.

I found a website where you play the original Oregon trail online and waxed nostalgic about the educational video games of my youth. Eddie got dysentery along the way.

While attending Swiss Days in Midway we learned the hard truth that Swiss tacos taste an awful lot like Navajo tacos.

Eddie got in touch with his inner mermaid at our annual trip to the Pumpkin Walk in North Logan.

We turned our focus toward home improvement, installing new lighting and a laminate floor in our kitchen. Now we get to use Christmas money to pay it all off. Hurray!

The three of us enjoyed a nice Christmas season filled with fees (trees), fans (snowflakes), a-men (snowmen), Ho Ho (Santa) and a trip downtown to see the lights on Temple Square.

Thanks to everyone who continues to visit our blog, including those who are content to lurk in the shadows. We hope you stick around in 2010, and maybe even get up the nerve to post that first comment.

I hope that 2010 will bring more videos of Dave demonstrating how to use playground equipment.

Can you actually purchase lego U2?

I'm pretty sure my mom is a closet reader.

Actually, I know your mom looks at Eddie's blog. She told me so the last time I saw her.
