Memories, Dreams and Reflections was created by Ashley of Ramblings and Photos, and it’s about taking a look back at the past year through your favorite photos.
Obviously, this is my in most pure state: total dorkism. I own that, yo!
2. I Love You
My babies. How could I not love them to pieces?
3. Still Laughing
Very very pregnant, and one of the very few times we have been able to get out. We went to a Suns vs. Mavs game and it was a BLAST.
4. Winter Wonderland
This is pretty much the closest thing to a Winter Wonderland around Phoenix! Taken in Oak Creek Canyon by Sedona, AZ, in February.
Poor Laney, since Vivienne was born just four days after her 1st birthday, we didn’t get a chance to celebrate until June!
Taken at a decorations party for The Shine Project, I met some lovely ladies, including the marvelous Ashley and wonderful Liz!
7. I Was Inspired
This year I opened my very own Etsy shop, and I am loving every moment of creativity it inspires in me.
8. Spring Fever
I guess in my case Spring Fever should be re-dubbed as “Baby Fever”, since two years in a row I popped out a kid in Spring.
9. Travel or Vacation
Travel? Vacation? We have no idea what those concepts are. When we get out, it’s to a park!
10. Summer Days
Phoenix summers are killer hot, so we spend a lot of time at the pool.
11. A Day In My Life
Take the song “Dancing in the Street” and change it to “Dancing in the Kitchen” and you’ve me, every day.
12. All Smiles
I have a goofy family, and I love them.
13. Autumn Harvest
Here, Spaz is taking a nice snooze next to our Halloween pumpkin. This was a great shot because the room was terrifically dark and so I had to use the slowest shutter speed and Spaz didn’t move a muscle!
14. Family or Home
Mi Familia, circa August, getting our feet eaten to death by ants.
Our new baby has joined the world and my mommy has come to visit, and I escaped death via acute pneumonia just days earlier.
16. Let’s Do It Again
We were doing what we do best: Makin’ Faces!
17. I Miss You
I miss my mommy and can’t wait for her to visit in March.
Four generations of Stockton women.
19. Dress Up
We couldn’t afford to celebrate Halloween, so the only dressing up going on around here is the cute dress I was finally able to wear when I dropped to my lowest weight in over five years!
Pretty summer fruit.
Mom’s voice rings loud and clear in the copy of The Night Before Christmas she sent to my girls.
22. My Favorite
OK, I don’t think it’s possible to choose one single favorite, but this is definitely in my top pile.
23. Don’t Ever Change
Laney is at that perfect stage where she is still little enough and cuddly enough that I never want to let her go.
24. Just Because…So There!
I love this photo, and I can’t even truly put my finger on why, but I do.
25. Hopes and Dreams
2012 is going to bring peace and happiness and success for our family, I just know it. God will provide and I will be thankful to Him.
