2008 in a nutshell...

We had tornadoes in January and spent hours huddled up in the office at Scrapbook Generation watching the severe weather reports on a teeny weeny TV.



For some reason we thought two dogs weren't enough. Chewy stole our hearts and ate our lamp, couch, window...



Drew spent three days and two nights in the hospital because he was having trouble breathing. Probably one of the scariest moments in my life.



The best thing that happened in 08 was when we welcomed Jackson Rayce to the world.



Drew turned three! I, however, stayed 27 and refused 28.



Mike and Jeremy attempted skateboarding and decided against going pro when... well the pictures pretty much tell that story.





I experienced teaching at CKC for the first time in Tulsa.




A month later I was at it again in KC. I also got to meet flat Joscie who took over the microphone for a photo opportunity.



Drew did a lot of this...



and when you weren't looking he did a lot of this...



Mike and I learned that laughter is a key element to handling parenthood.



Drew gave up on pouting in pictures and starting taking interest in cameras. If you can't beat em'...



Jackson at only seven months, had his first haircut that finally put an end to the "oh what a pretty little girl!" comments.





And this Christmas was by far the best.



Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009!

Happy New Year! :)

Allison,

great way of remembering the ups & downs of 2008. Jackson is absolutely cherubic with those cheeks!

Thanks for sharing your inspirations with us "virtual" strangers and helping us scrap the wonderful (and less than desirable) parts of our everyday lives.

Happy 2009 to you & your family!
