A Look Back At 2008!

Patrick and Carter started taking karate. It has been such a great thing for both of them!
Madison turned 12.
We bought Kitty, our little guinea pig.
We threw Madison a "rock n roll" birthday party.
The boys got their first promotions in karate.

We painted Madison's room pink.
We had our first and only snow of the year.
We spent Easter with my family.

We cleaned the pool and got it ready for summer.
Jeff started teaching us all to play tennis.

We finished year 3 of homeschooling! We celebrated with a sleepover in our tent.


Vicki and I turned 40 on Father's Day.

We went to my family dad was able to be there!

We painted our kitchen/dining room.
We spent the weekend at the lake for Jeff's family reunion. The kids all learned to knee board!

Vicki and I vacationed together with our families at Navarre Beach in Florida.

Our precious guinea pig, Kitty, died.


Jeff and I went on a cruise. It was cut short one day because of hurricane Gustav.

We started our 4th year of homeschooling! We always welcome the new school year in with pizza.


We took the kids on their first camping Camp Wilhelmina.
We celebrated the beginning of fall at my friend, Chelita's, fall party.

We went to my old hometown fair with Vicki and her family.

Patrick turned 11!

We celebrated Thanksgiving at home with Vicki and her family.

Carter turned 10!
Jeff turned 39.
We enjoyed another wonderful, blessed holiday season.

That was great! I love how many times we were in there or I knew we were there LOL. Now I want to copy you and go do one of these. Seeing it like this make you realize how fast a year goes by because all that stuff feels like it happened yesterday.
