A Year In Review

I was wondering how to recap the year on my blog and The Roost  and A Romantic Home gave me a great idea on how to recap a great year.

I have started a new blog, dedicated to Stampin’ and Scrappin’, please stop by A Stampin Mama and share links, ideas, etc., I am looking for awesome craft rooms to highlight right now.


My first pic of 2008 and my all time favorite. Lyss is ready to party and Carl is ready for bed. This pic is classic.


A note left on the fridge by Lyss. I have this framed in my craft room.


Alyssa at the park before her princess party.


Dance recital, don't you love the orange crocs with the tutu?


Lena and Shane goofing off in the car on their way to Mother's Day Brunch.


Shane and Braiz at prom downtown Cincinnati.


Lyss took this. She noticed the beautiful sunset and captured it on film. It hangs in my office as a reminder of how fast she is growing up.


My favorite holiday besides Christmas. She was a fairy.


Don't you love how serious they took my need for a Christmas picture?

My two beautiful girls!

 It was a great year!!!


About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......

    I had to chuckle at that first one – that is so me. I think I was in bed before midnight on New Year’s Eve.

    The rest of the photos – just lovely!!

    I have said it before and I will say it again. “All I have to do is replace the faces of your brood with mine and you are my family.” Shane is so handsome and Lena is gorgeous. Don’t tell either one of them or I will deny, deny, deny. Lyss is my Nat, the baby, the one the others spoiled rotten and now call her spoiled rotten brat. I keep telling them that they were and are just as spoiled but they aren’t falling for it. HAPPY NEW YEAR!! LOVE YOU!!!
