I thought I'd leave 2009 with a year in photographs...
Hope you enjoy:
We had a NY eve party
My pal & I did what we do best... act like dorks!
We went skiing at Crystal Mtn in northern Michigan
In February we:
went to Maui
I BEGGED daily to never return to MI & yes, I really could live there & no, I wouldn't miss the seasons!
I reluctantly turned 40 (although I don't think I minded at this very moment).
we got rid of the snow & tried out the Barbie roller skates
we got ready for Easter
we colored eggs with DOMO
& we cruised the Caribbean
while dressed in our best!
we did nothing (obviously)
we ended kindergarten...insert the sound of a mother weeping!
We got ice cream!
celebrated the 5 year anniversary of darling daughters adoption! What a WONDERFUL 5 Years!!
Adopt a kid, save YOUR life!
we watched fireworks
In August we:
wished the mister a happy #51
saw double rainbows in our backyard!
picked Michigan blueberries!
& pretended to camp at a hotel... Our friends tried to show us how fun camping was...
In September we:
packed the garden away
added this little 1993 beauty
went to Art Prize in downtown Grand Rapids, MI
& sent this little gal on to 1st grade (insert the sound of a mother weeping)
In October we:
Went to the pumpkin patch
& celebrated our wedding anniversary (nope, not 1 picture of that...)
& the Mister shot an elk
we watched the leaves in our yard get ready to fall & I laid in the fetal position because winter was staring into my face
Christian came to town
I found Jesus in a salvage yard
I sent my princess to school as a vampire bat
My dear cousin got engaged to the man of her dreams (no, that's not him, that's me!)
In December we:
started decorating for Christmas:
Happy Birthday Jesus!
we went to see Santa
we proved our dog was a boy despite his pink coat
& then we thought about how very lucky we are!!
Thanks to all of you that take the time to read about my goofy adventures, look at my artwork & leave me comments- I can't tell you how much it means to me!!
I hope 2010 brings many wonderful things to you & yours!!
