Memories, Dreams, and Reflections 2011

Linking up with Ashley Sisk for Memories, Dreams, and Reflections.  Brace yourself for photo overload!  :)

I'm still learning the art of self-portraits so this one is from way back in February.

{i love you}
I love you
Even though they are sometimes less than cooperative, I still love them very much.

Oh my, we had a blast at Girls' Night in early December!

winter wonderland
Had to go way back to January 2011 to get some snow photos.  We just haven't had much yet this winter.  But as you can see, we had plenty last winter!  :)


Keira with her good friend, Rachel.

I was inspired
by Sarah at Naptime Momtog to play one last time with my Christmas tree lights.

{spring fever}
The flowers were beautiful at the Erie Zoo back in April.

{travel or vacation}
Our trip to Niagara Falls.

I just love this photo of my nephew, Kyle, throwing Nick in the pool.  So much fun!

{a day in my life}
a day in my life
It is pretty typical for me to be on the computer ... checking email or reading a blog post or two ... or ten.  :)

{all smiles}
all smiles
I know I've shown this photo a few times lately, but it just makes me happy that I managed to capture all three of my kids smiling and looking at the camera at the same time!  :)

{autumn harvest}

Yeah, still love this photo too.  :)

{family or home}
family or home
An attempt to get a family photo on Thanksgiving.  Not great, but better than nothing.

We celebrated meeting fellow blogger, Melissa, from Louisiana.  She came to PA to visit us in early December, thanks to Laura.

{let's do it again}
I'd like to run another race or two in 2012.

{i miss you}
We were only able to raise 6 Monarch butterflies in 2011.  Mainly due to the drought.  Their food supply just wasn't available.  I really missed not having a bunch of hungry caterpillars in my house last summer.  :)  Hoping to remedy that this summer.

No explanation needed.  :)

{dress up}
Alex will probably kill me for this photo when he gets older, but he agreed to put on Keira's dress and this purple wig one day when the kids were playing.  He put the wig on wrong but wouldn't let us fix it.

This really cool-looking caterpillar is still in chrysalis form over-wintering in my kitchen.

I thought I'd break away from all the Christmas photos and show some July 4th fireworks instead.

{my favorite}
my favorite
I didn't take this photo.  Our friend, Rainey, took it with either Laura's or Melissa's camera (I borrowed it from Facebook).  But this is one of my favorite photos from when Mel was visiting.  We had such a fun time together.

{don't ever change}
Nick is such a fun-loving boy.  I hope he never outgrows that!

{just because ... so there!}
just because
Love this photo!

{hopes and dreams}
hopes and dreams
I think this speaks for itself.  Could be any day now.

Happy New Year!  I wish you all the best for you and your families in 2012!

And since this is really a rewind, linking up with Gina and Sarah for ...
Naptime Momtog
