Year In Review....Top 10 Pictures

I'm joining Jules in the Top 10 party over at
The Roost. Here are my favorites from 2008

Us with Doug's brother Scott, our SIL Lisa and our nieces Sam and Katie at the Gaylord Texan Ice Show. Over the past year, we have grown closer and I am so thankful.

For the animal parade at school, Brady was a puppy with a pet monkey.

Cade lost his first tooth.

Having a scrapbooker mom, these two are used to having an camera in their face all of the time and really know how to ham it up when they feel like it.

Look at these two beauties. Doug surprised me with them....he finally gave in to all of the hints I'd been dropping for about a year! Now, if they'd only come out with an invention that would fold and hang up all the clothes I'd really be in heaven.

A day of garage sales with my MIL and SIL. We had soooo much fun and found so much stuff! We're going thrifting next week for SIL's birthday....can't wait!

Kitchen project. I was inspired by Layla over at
The Lettered Cottage. My stepmom helped me remove the doors on the upper cabinets, paint and we added hardware to all the other doors and cabinets. I love the way it turned out.

Our Brady Bear turns 4.

I saw this sock monkey and wanted to get a picture of Cade standing in front of it since our pet name for him is "Cade Monkey". He was not cooperating with me and decided to make a face when I snapped the shot. He wasn't even trying to look like the monkey, but he totally does! ha ha

The love of my life. This picture was taken after our 4th of July vacation in Crystal Beach. He didn't shave at all that week and on the last day he shaved all of his scruff into a goatee. Hubba hubba!

What sweet pictures! Sock monkeys = So cute : ). I imagine your life is full of adventures with 2 little boys! Hope your New Year is happy! God bless!

PS I LOVE your cabinets. So cool! The only thing that would make me nervous about that would be that it would always have to look good. Sometimes someone in my house (not me : ) just throws things up there and closes the door quickly...

I just visited your blog for the first time. LOVE IT. So sweet and fun. I used to have a front loading W&D and had to "include" it in the sale of our home. Now I have the free rental home set. I miss my front loading machines. You are one lucky woman. I relate with so many of your photographs. Have a super 2009 year.
