Year in Pictures

I was inspired by Donna over at QuietLife when I saw her Year in Pictures. So I've had fun the last two days reviewing our pictures and picking one, or two for every month of 2008. If you want to join in the fun or see other Year in Pictures, you can go HERE .

January: Mr. C and Mr. H join the cast of Rumpelstiltskin from the traveling MissoulaChildren'sTheatre (It becomes apparent that the acting bug has not bitten.)

February: Happy 1st Valentine's Day Miss A!

Mr. Z builds a snowman with all our new snow!

April: We head to Orlando and join Oma & Papa for Florida fun! Yes, we all wore neon chartreuse green t-shirts so we could easily see one another. And it worked!! Apologize for the glare :)

May: My husband is ecstatic to bag his first turkey. Yes, we ate it. . . it was good.

June: The princess and Mr. J enjoy the warm summer sunshine!

July: This was the last time I saw my Grandma. She passed away 3 months later at the age of 88. She is especially missed by my Grandpa. They were married 67 years!

August: My sister and family came to visit and we decided to have some family pictures taken. My friend Lisa came over and took many treasured shots. These are some of my favorites. Thanks again, Lisa!

September: Kayaking on the river at a friends' home.

October: Happy 40th Kathy!

Fun, friends, flowers and a friendship quilt!

November: My handsome husband at our family Thanksgiving gathering.

December: We love having a fire in our fireplace during these cold winter months.
