Well that was WAY WAY WAY longer then I intended it to be,lol. And yet even then you have no idea how hard it was to pick and chose and eliminate and exclude. Yes, this was a busy year of sewing and a full year of family and love and I am more then grateful for it all. The new year lies in front of us all ready to fill it's pages with our memories and happenings. No one knows what those might be. No doubt there will be hard times as well as happy, sick days as well as well days, laughter, tears, and everything in between. But through it all I pray we all keep our eyes on Him, and remember from whom all blessings flow. Happy New Year to you all! Many blessings to you in the coming year! Debbie
JUST for fun I decided to go back and pick 4 of my very favorite pictures of the year! This will be VERY difficult just so you know. I need to point out here that I by no means took all of these pictures. My kids are responsible for many of them. But that doesn't stop them from being some of my all times favorites....ok, here goes....
ok, I lied....these are my TOP 12! lol And from there I'll chose my top 3....starting with
|AT NUMBER 3 FOR THE YEAR, MY KIDS....LOVE THIS PICTURE AND ALL OF THEM. IT WAS JUST SUCH A GOOD ONE!|
|COMING IN AT NUMBER 2 IS THIS ONE OF MELODY AND SWEET CLAIRE...JUST CAPTURES THIS MOMENT AND SEASON IN TIME SOO WELL. AND TAKEN BY A 3 YEAR OLD BTW!|
|AND COMING IN AT NUMBER ONE I THINK IS THIS ONE OF A GIRL AND HER DADDY. I JUST LOVE THIS PICTURE AND THE MEMORY WILL STICK WITH ME FOREVER I AM SURE!|
What about any of you [if anyone is still even here after this LONG LONG post, lol] Any favorites?
