I Love You
|My daughters, on the younger's second birthday (older was about to turn six)|
|It's not easy getting seven cousins ages six and under together (and smiling) for a family photo!|
|This photo was taken just before Christmas... and (most) of them look a lot happier!|
|Her first time making a snow angel!|
|The Younger on her second birthday, with the birthday cake my Mother made for her. She's not sure what to think of everyone singing to her!|
|The Older on her sixth birthday, holding up the "Pink Princess Dress" she asked my Mother to make for her.|
|My daughter at her sixth birthday party, surrounded by her friends. We had her party at our favorite park, and these girly girls spent the last part of the party playing in the creek. :)|
I Was Inspired...
|I used this photo in one of my first Photo Hunt Challenges, and it was picked one of the judge's favorites. While I have always loved photography, this pick inspired me to find other photo scavenger hunts and challenges to help me improve my skills. I love Ashley's list of photo challenges!|
Travel or Vacation
|We didn't travel at all this year, but we did take a drive up to the mountains! Here's a view from the Blue Ridge Parkway, just outside of Boone, NC. I believe this is the|

A Day In My Life
|Every day, I meet my daughter as she gets off the school bus. Here she is on her last day of Kindergarten!|
|Playing in the Autumn leaves|
|I totally stole this picture (Hi, Marci!). I had planned to use the one of the cousins (above) for family, but I'm still laughing over that photo! I've used enough of my girls... and truly, this represents family more than anything else. My Grandmother, parents, brother and sisters, and all my nieces and nephews! (My sister Marci is probably also participating in Memories, Dreams and Reflections, why don't you check her out here)|
|Celebrating my Grandmother's 80-something birthday! She's smiling at the camera... My daughter's smiling at the cake!|
I Miss You
|We're making a big move in a few months, and my Sweetheart has gone ahead first to set up hearth and home. I miss him so much and so do our daughters... can't wait to be together again!|

Don't Ever Change
|You've seen this one before... my two girls, ages six and two. Sisters that love each other madly. I love that bond that they share. I don't want that ever to change|
Just Because...So There!
Thanks for sharing my year with me! I'm excited that a New Year has begun, and I can't wait to see where it brings me! All the best to you...
