2009-The Year in Pictures!

My friend Shawna did a review of 2009 in pictures.
I thought it was a cute idea!


In January, I donated my hair in honor of my sister-in-law starting her chemo.
I am so glad I did it!
By the way, she is cancer-free!!!

Not much happened in February. It was too cold to go anywhere.
The boys played trains-a lot!

In March, we got together with my real life friends Lisa and Sydney.
We all had babies at the same time when Michael was born. Here is Michael with Syd's
son, Alex. They have a great time when they see each other!
BTW-check out Syd's blog. She just added to her family this month!



April meant Easter. These boys spent the day before at the zoo with Daddy!



In May, we filled the pool so it would be ready for June.
This was taken at the end of May. The water was freezing, as were these boys!



In June, we went for a getaway to the water park.
My niece, Clare, came with us to lend a huge hand
as I was way too pregnant to be of any good to anyone!


In July, we trekked an hour to see the best fireworks in the state!



August means State Fair.
Although we did not go this year because I was so close to my due date,
we did get our cream puffs-the breakfast of champions!



September, of course, brought our precious baby girl, Alex into the family.
Yes, darling, Mommy would cry too with all of those big brothers!



October, Halloween, enough said!



November was my godson's State Championship football game.
Here I am with my niece, Clare.
Love you, Clare!


Finally, December, and the first real picture of my children together
that actually turned out!
Happy New Year to you all!
I am looking forward to journeying 2010 with you!

Love the pictures!

I'll have to see if I have a picture from each month to post...

I started blogging later in the year, so probably there's pictures somewhere no one has seen..

Happy New Year!

This was fun, thanks for sharing!

Shawna said...

What a wonderful year! I had a great time re-living some of the great times this year held and it was so nice to see a recap of yours! I forced myself to only pick one picture each month, which was so hard--didn't you think so?

How sweet of you to cut your hair for your sister and how wonderful that she is cancer free! So, where are the best fireworks in the state?
