A Top 10 of 2008

In celebration and reflection of another year gone by, Jules from The Roost is hosting a end of the year par-tay!

She wants participants to choose their Top 10 photos from 2008.

Easy enough, right?! Ummm, yea.

So I consulted my handy dandy Photoshop program only to discover that SOMEONE has taken close to 1 million 3700 photos THIS YEAR!

In this anonymous person’s defense, there was a lot of scanning of old photos done this year. As well as, one 9 year old who also contributes to the photo taking addiction fun.

Ahem.

Moving along.

May I present to you a very tiny stroll down memory lane at the GRITS household from 2008:



February 2008, the hubby became deacon at church and I became known as Lillian.



P4120090_edited-1 Big birthday for me this year, the big 4-0. Hubby threw me a not-so surprise birthday party. Complete with video.



P4240008In honor of my big birthday, I hosted Girls Night Out, 80’s style. Except my friends wore 80’s dress in BLACK to mourn the passing of my youth. *sigh*



P5250068 Hubby, with the Princess in her favorite spot, that she is almost too big for.



Rare moment where someone was caught sharing the love with Dad.



P9140029 This was the year, Lego-Man, got brave. Here he is jumping off a boat dock into the lake.



DSC_0029_edited-1 The Princess insisted on playing flag football. She did. And also ran for a touchdown from one end of the field to the other in her very last game.



P7110009 We had a summer of “spend the night” parties. They took turns in each other’s room all summer long. And continue to do so each weekend. I’m going to enjoy it while I can.



PB010049_edited-1 Welcome to the home of Alabama football. Roll Tide!



And in case you missed it, THIS would be my very favorite photo of 2008. These are the littlest cousins:

Stopping by from The Roost. I think I took just as many pictures too. Love the idea of the 80s party to celebrate your youth. My favorite is the one of your kids' sleep over - I love these moments as rare as they are in my house. Happy New Year!

Jules from "The Roost" said...

LOVE them all! You are only 10 years younger than me! LOL You could be a Grammie in 10 years! HEEE HEEE.....That picture at the end is awesome! Thanks for coming to the party and being such a fun guest! :)

I still love that last photo, Tammy. I'm thinking about participating. Kinda difficult when I don't do face shots on the blog, but hmm... we'll see...

Valarie Lea said...

This was a hard thing to do! I am like you I have so many darn pictures it was hard to go through them all. I actually had to get an external hard drive just to hold them all.

Queen B said...

The Lillian story is priceless.

Looking forward to more of your funny stories in 2009!
