2008 in Review

I was trying to figure out an original way to recap 2008, but decided to be lazy and "borrow" an idea instead.  Here's some of my favorite pictures from the past year:

Doc and Obi Wan-da are doing their best impression of their Uncle Bass Man's performance at Disney.

I don't know why we buy toys when my kid is entertained by twist ties.

Our little lady digging for gold while she's hunting for eggs... we're a very classy family.

Every spring my mom, Obi Wan-da and I go out for a lady's tea.  I love my girl's chocolate milk mustache.

April #2 (Because I like this picture and didn't have anything for May)
This is the day God protected 6 innocent children from pneumonia and their moms' stupidity.

Our kids can never claim we didn't take them anywhere fancy for our family vacations.

There was a lot in this motif, but this is my favorite because Obi Wan-da is re-enacting Princess Leia's pose in the Lego Star Wars game.

Ma Bell moved 6 hours away earlier this year so I treasure any time the "sistahs" can be together.

This is one for the history books because this was our last chance to enjoy Cypress Gardens before all the rides were removed permanently.  


The mommies-only trip to the Grand Canyon was a big high point for the year.

I love this picture because it represents the fact that despite the usual sibling squabbles, Doc Brown and Obi Wan-da became better friends this year.

Oh, and lest anyone get a complex on behalf of my son because there's more pictures of Obi Wan-da in my recap, let me just say that I love my children equally.  It just so happens we have more photographic evidence of Obi Wan-da's weirdness.  Probably because she gives us so much material!

I love it! Isn't great having weird kids? What did we ever do for entertainment before we had kids? Wishing you a very happy & healthy new year!

Hi Lori! Don't know if you remember us - but I just saw you on Lisa's page. Do you remember our Vanessa? She is 8 now! I have been on blogspot since last year - but never really "knew" anyone. It's so neat now to see that there are other familiar bloggers out there. Please visit us:

I love the picture of Obi-wan-da as Princess Leia in the Lego Star Wars pose. That game is well loved around here as well.
