The Year That Was – 2009…

January 1st, 2010 · 17 Comments

Happy New Year to All of You from all of us…


It can be done a family photo – thanks to P.M.G. who said she she could do it and then she did!!!

We read a lot, wrote a lot, and drew a lot…


We read a lot, explored a lot, and invented a lot…


We read a lot, we pranced a lot, and sewed a lot…


We read a lot, we played a lot, and we built a lot…


We read a lot, we baked a lot, and we cooked a lot…


We read a lot, we hunted a lot, and we spoke a lot…


We read a lot, we grew a lot, and we did a lot…


Some of us arrived and gazed a lot, stretched a lot and did that wild arm thing a lot… and most likely he will grow a lot and read a lot!!!


Pretty much the same as last year and hopefully 2010 will be even more of the same for us!!!

Definitely time for a new tree:


That’s us – Have a great year!

    Finally! Thank you for showing us what you look like 🙂 What a beautiful family picture – the kids are growing like weeds including Hood number 8. I’m sure he’s bigger than Kendra 🙂

    Hi M, Aaahh the invisible blogger who lurks behind the camera!!! Isn’t it funny how these kids grow regardless of what we do!!! I never weight my kids except when they are born… but I can say #8 at three months is very comfortable in 6-12 month clothes… but he was 4.7kg’s when he was born – hardly a little mite!!! Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!!!
