The best of 2008

As we celebrate the last waning hours of 2008, I figured I would blatantly steal from Texasholly of June Cleaver Nirvana and offer up my favorite photos of the year.

And may 2009 bring you nothing but the best.


Happy New Year!


Portrait of a teenager as a silhouette


True love


Sibling love


Play it for me, D Man


The graduate


The magnificent seven


First day of high school

A month driven by sports

First time J-bear is bowed to as a black belt

Leaping lizards!


An all-star moment for the Roo-girl, who had the opportunity
to be on the track to stunt with the varsity cheer squad!


Drama King's birthday hug


Because nothing says happy holidays like sequins!

How lovely is it that every one of those favorites contained the kids?

Happy New Year, Janet!

(I am crossing my fingers that there is some sort of family gathering tonight, so we get to hear humorous rehashing?!)

Karen said...

What a cool way to recap the year. I love that it's all about your family. I do fear for Roo's taste in clothing, though. The sequins?

Immoral Matriarch said...

I want that JACKET.

Happy New Year!

Rachel said...

That Jacket is fantastic! ;-) Princess would wet herself over that jacket ;-) It's amazing how much Roo has grown up!!

I was going to do that too, until I saw how bad my picture organization was!!

happy new year, Janet. I love the photos. the one of Roo girl in! did you take that? if you did, I am very impressed with your talent. I've got one of Jen last year in a similar pose, but in the middle of a basket toss. but it was captured by a professional photographer during their comepetition at the Milk House in Disneyworld, I wasn't able to capture the basket toss with my own camera and couldn't believe how good the professional shot turned out.

Amazing photographs all - And I remember each one. But missing from all of that - is you, my sweet. It may be the kids, for you, but it's YOU for all of us.

Momo Fali said...

Wonderful pictures! Wonderful memories! I kinda wish you'd just adopt me.

Happy New Year!

*lol* I have to say that my favorite is December...that jacket is so awesome!!

I wish I could pick favorites from every month...but I doubt I'd succeed...too many to choose from, too many to love.

Janet said...

such cool shots, Happy New year!

Momisodes said...

I remember so many of these! I can see why they're your favorites. It's been wonderful following along all year here on your blog. I look forward to reading what comes along (particularly with family meals) in 2009.

Happy New Year!!!

Crazed Mom said...

Awesome photos as usual. You are very talented in so many ways. Happy new year Janet. It was great getting to know you.


texasholly said...

Awesome. Can you send me that jacket to borrow for a few days? That is super cool.

Trannyhead said...

I would look SO hawt in that jacket.

Just thought I'd share.

PS - Can I be an honorary member of your family? You guys kick ass.

Debbie said...

I love these photos. It is nice to get to see the year in photos. I hope your family has a wonderful 2009.

I want the jacket. What do you mean I'm too old? I am not! Well, yeah, OK, I am. Darn.
