The Best of 2008

I can't believe 2008 is almost gone...here are some highlights (and a couple lowlights)...

In January
We celebrated Cutie's bday with a spring themed party.
In February
We took a giggling group of girls to see the Hannah Montana 3D movie for Girls Nite Out!
In March
I started my blog...you can read the first post here!
Dr. Hubby's paternal grandmother passed away.
Manga Dork and I attended the Scrapbook Expo
In April
Mom and I traveled to Amish Country and stayed in a victorian b&b.
We celebrated Wild Child's 3rd bday late due to illness and a busy schedule with a SpongeBob themed party.
In May
Dr. Hubby turned 33.

We traveled to NC to visit Lil Sis. My mom joined us. The babies loved the beach this year!

In June
Our purple marker got wild and crazy...read about it here!
I had a nervous breakdown and did this!

I had a run-in with our Dora stool and ended up with liquid stitches on a cut around my toe. 2 weeks before we were to leave for NYC! It healed and was fine...thank you God!

In July
Dr. Hubby and I celebrated our 14th anniversary!
I confessed to all you bloggy buddies about my fashion problems...see them here!

Charlie the pygmy goat decided to harrass Tony the Belgian horse. He ended up with a cracked skull, a loose horn, and a blind eye. He survived and was sold on 12/27. We no longer have goats on the farm.

We flew to NYC to meet Lil Sis and BIL for a week. This was a dream come true for me. NYC was my #1 dream trip.

In August
We started potty training both little ones...check out one of our methods here!
Foster Son moved to another foster home. This was the hardest thing to go through this year.

I flew with my mom and Manga Dork to visit Lil Sis in NC for a week. What a great trip! We celebrated their birthdays a little early.

I started reading Twilight...who knew how that would transform our lives. LOL!

Manga Dork started Junior High.

Wild Child began preschool.

In September

We threw Manga Dork an 80s Dance Club themed party complete with DJ. I am sure Dr. Hubby will still be reminding me of the $$$ I spent on this way into 2009!

We did a room makeover for her birthday present. Foster son came over on 12/23 and saw it for the first time. He walked in the door and went straight to it. I don't think it was an easy thing for him to see.

In October

We enjoyed our Halloween this year with portraits, a community party, and trick or treat night/parade.

In November

My schoolhouse was finished on the inside and I moved in...now in 2009....THE OUTSIDE!

I threw my own party and we saw Twilight in the theatre. Dr. Hubby flew Lil Sis in to spend the weekend with me.

We spent Thanksgiving with my family.

I almost broke my toe (yes, that is 2 foot injuries in 1 year) It healed in time to go shopping with mom.

In December

I went shopping with mom and we stayed at the Marriott Town Center.

We had a great Christmas!

It has been a great year! After looking at my calendar and reading back over my blog I made one very deep discovery about 2008...

We ate ALOT of chinese food! Yum!

Here's to a great 2009!

What a cool recap of the year!! I should do the same, what do you think??? I feel like I have really gotten to know you throughout the year, and you are in my thoughts a lot!! I want you to know, that your Twilight obsession had me curious, but tigardlilly is forcing me to read the books, lol!! Of course I already know how it ends, cause she spent an hour giving me the entire synopsis, lol! I have never seen her so excited!!
