Tonggu Momma posted a list of her Top 10 Photos for 2010 and challenged the rest of us to do the same. My problem was narrowing it down to just 10 pictures because there were so many more I could have included. But here are 10 of my favorites, even though there are more...maybe I'll do 10 more next week sometime, just because I can. :-)
In no particular order...
M turned one year old in April. He has changed and grown so much in the past year! I can't believe he is now only 4 months away from turning 2. Where does the time go?
This one is of MJ and her friend, A. A's family was in our travel group, and the girls are both from Tonggu (just like the Tongginator.) At the time, we lived 3 hours from each other in Georgia. At about the same time, job situations moved them to Tennessee and us to Florida, so we are no longer close to each other geographically. We were so glad to have a chance to see them while they were down here.
This is a photo of K at our local July 4 parade. The bus behind her had a bubble machine, and she was absolutely captivated by the bubbles all around her.
When we went to Louisiana this summer, we were able to spend some time with my grandparents. This is M with my grandfather, his great-grandfather. The quality of the picture isn't the greatest, but the subject matter is priceless.
Here is this year's "First Day of School" picture. MJ started pre-K, and K started 3 year old preschool. They love school (and are ready to go back after the holidays are over).
We also had a chance to see some of our dear friends from south Georgia. One of the most difficult parts of moving is leaving your close friends. Our families have both grown, but it was like we haven't lived far apart for 3 years. So glad they chose to vacation nearby!
Here are our 3 little Cowpokes, ready to Trick-or-Treat!
When we visited my mother-in-law during Thanksgiving week, the fall leaves on her property were still absolutely gorgeous. It was such a beautiful time in her part of Georgia, and I was glad to be able to make some fall pictures of our three kids.
MJ has started her first venture into organized sports, playing Upward basketball. Her team has started practicing, but their first game isn't until next weekend. Here she is modeling her uniform. Go Lil' Hawks!
And finally, this was a snapshot we took while we were taking pictures for our Christmas cards. The girls wanted to chase the seagulls so badly, and we finally let them. We actually ended up using this one as one of our Christmas card photos.
