Year Of Kayla

While doing Project 365 in 2009, I managed to snap a photo of Kayla each month (and then some!) In these photos, she's 11 - 12 years old!

Brothers Layout

On our way back from our daily walk, the boys were deep in imagination with their swords. Hunter grabbed Riley's hand to keep him from falling in the smoldering lava and bring him safely home!

Christmas Day 09 Layouts!

Christmas Day (morning 1)

Christmas Day (morning 2)

Christmas Day (afternoon-evening)

I managed to fit Christmas day in 3 2-page layouts thanks to Yin's templates. I Love them! It always seems so daunting to scrap big events but I just took my favorite photos that tell the story and got it done. I really tried to not use every photo I took. If it wasn't a good photo, I deleted it. Now, I would love to go back and scrap last year's Christmas this way!

New Year's Eve 09/10

We rang in the new year at home, just the 4 of us and it was perfect! The boys had no problem at all staying up until midnight and then some! We watched a movie, played a game of Phase 10, ate pizza, brownies and popcorn and watch the ball drop at Times Square. At midnight we went out on the front porch with our hats and noisemakers and contributed to the noise and fireworks echoing through the night air!

I hope you all enjoyed the start to the new year!
