Time to add some new layouts

From our Fourth of July this year. We went to a parade in downtown Roseville & then to my parents for the rest of the afternoon & evening.

On Memorial Day we went to a local water park & had a nice picnic lunch.

A summary of Brandon's first year in preschool. This will go in his school album that I'm going to make...but first I actually have to BUY the album :)

The title page from our 2008 album. I like having a mish-mosh of photos from throughout the year. I tried to do one a month, but....I liked how it came out so it's all that matters, right?

I finally got these stitched together in Photoshop. And then it (and my computer) crashed! Fortunately nothing was lost, but I had to start over (in photoshop).

One year ago...

I can't believe Abbie is going to be one today.

One year ago tonight, I laid awake. I was enormously pregnant & it was HOT. And I was stressing over what our new baby was going to do to our perfect family of four. And whether my c-section was going to be okay. Whether everything would be okay.

And here I am, one year later. With a one year old, who blended in perfectly to our family. We were meant to be a family of five.

Where did this year go?

I hate how as I get older, the years go by so quickly. Brandon is almost four & a half! I was just pregnant with him, wasn't I? Olivia is a vivacious three year old. And Abbie is one!

What happens when you take the tray off the highchair to clean it?

photoshop class

My assignment: add a frame & a border.
I thought this picture of Abbie was totally "sassy"!

Happy Fourth of July

We went to the Roseville Fourth of July Parade this year, then over to my parents' for a fun afternoon. Olivia had her fingernails painted by Kathy, and we enjoyed the neighborhood fireworks after a nice dinner.
