What follows are some of my favorite pictures from 2010. I did this last year, and I said then, like I'm going to say now. With the quantity of pics I take, it is SO hard to just pick one a month. So for some months I did pick more than one, as hard as I tried to just narrow it down I couldn't!
So here goes:
It goes without saying that this was the biggest surprise of our lives. January 10th 2010 will go down as one of my most memorable days. I remember pretty much every second of it. I had been praying about whether or not to try for a third child. There was a bit of risk and we weren't sure what to do. Having had to have fertility meds to get pregnant with both the girls, this was just simply an answer to prayer. If you're so inclined you can read more about that day HERE.
I also have to include this one for January. Natalie wrote her name all by herself for the first time at 3 yrs 3 months old.
I had a bit of a mini shoot with the girls right before Valentine's Day trying to get some good pictures to give John. This one I love. Abby in a headlock and all. :)
We had several bouts of snow in March. That's just the way it happens in Alabama. Love this one of the girls and gotta include our "leaf" man.
This is also a favorite of mine from John's birthday celebration. John HATES being in pictures, so it's a bonus when he embraces it. :)
Another one of the dear hubby, entertaining the girls one spring day.
So here's the story behind this one. I had signed the kids up for free bowling. Several of the bowling alleys offered free bowling every day of the summer! Couldn't beat that! And our G-paw loves to bowl, so we took him with us. This was in May and it was the only trip we made the entire year!
June was busy for us. G-Paw retired, we went on a last minute trip to Gulf Shores and Abigail turned two. Lots of picture taking this month. But here are two from Abby's birthday.
The girl watches her mama:)
I have quite a few from July but this one stands out to me.
Another month with lots of pictures since this is the month we welcomed Jonathan into our lives. The kids didn't get to see him until he came home from the hospital since he had to be in NICU. This was their first time holding him.
Pa-Pa with his two youngest grandkids.
Our first family photo.
My cousin has 3 kids of her own all right about the same age as mine. We tried more than once to get some group pictures for the great grandparents. Lets just say it was an adventure. :)
Another one of those months with an abundance of photos. In fact I still have some from our white Christmas to share here. But anyway.. this one takes the cake from Christmas morning.
Something to note after doing this post and looking back at last years. I need to take more photos of the Grands and the extended family. I get lots and lots of pictures of the kids, but when they are grown and older I would imagine they'd like to have more pictures of their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. So as 2011 begins, add that to my list of things to accomplish this year!
