Year In Photos

Thanks to Donna for giving me this idea and thanks to Flickr for keeping all of my photos achived by month/day which makes this a lot easier on me.

My 2008…


Layla and I were in Tucson for Christmas because Thomas was in Iraq.

And she had bangs.

We got to meet Prince Eric for the first time and I had an issue over doing eyes…

Back in Hawaii we hiked to the lighthouse with Steph and Jon. Thankfully he was there to carry Cody on his back AND push Layla in the stroller because I dont think I would have made it LOL


Layla turned 3.

And Stephanie found the redneck teeth.

Sorry Steph, I had to. It still totally cracks me up 🙂

We flew kites on Valentine’s day

And we saw Montgomery Gentry FREE on post. And Bowling for Soup. Layla loved it!

Layla took swim classes which in the end made it where I could wash her hair at night with no death screams 🙂

I ended my Project 365 on my Myspace blog with this picture


In April I started this blog 🙂 And I was a little obsessed with these morning glory seeds we planting on easter.

Also, Thomas came home in April super skinny

In June Patio came to visit us even though we didnt have any furniture…just Aloha loaner furniture.

She found love with the Chief 😉

And Layla learned the truth about where the pig at the luau comes from…the hole in the ground.

And the best thing that happened in June…
Baby K was born and Cody became a big brother 🙂

June was also when we left Hawaii and some of our best friends 🙁


We realized that Arizona is a bit hotter than Hawaii in the summer

We spent the 4th of July in Tucson

And then went to San Diego and Sea World with Sasha, Chae, and Easton

And after a lot of driving and some Starbucks and a night in San Antonio we arrived in Enterprise, AL…

And we bought our first house and had our furniture delivered a couple days before Thomas left to MO for 2 months.

    This is really cool! I’m going to have to steal your idea! I can’t believe how much Layla grew this year. The little girl in the first picture looks nothing like the big girl in the last ones!

  • Katie

    Awesome idea, and I may just snag it…I was looking back and thinking, “Oh wow, I remember that, and awww, I miss going to Ko Olina too and I remember you talking about flying kites on HMW.” Man oh man, this year did fly by.

  • Steph

    Hahaha…we were talking about that picture of me earlier today 🙂 That one will always make me laugh. Seeing all those photos made me miss you guys more than we already do. I love this idea so much. If I’m not lazy I might steal it…but we both know how good I am about updating my blog. Hope you have a wonderful start to your 2009. Hau’oli Makahiki Hau.
