2008~ A year in Review

I know that so many people say this....but seriously, 2008 just flew by for us!  Last year, I did a 2007 review post, and I love looking back at it to not only see the amazing growth of Sugar Bear, but to count my many blessings.  What can be better than that?  I simply can't pass up the chance to do it again.  

Sit back, relax and enjoy the sights of 2008 here in the little world of Living and Loving Every Minute of It.

January 2008

We celebrated Sugar Bear's 3rd birthday, got a pony, and played in the snow.








February 2008

There was the Mud and the Puddles, Valentines, and Hide and Seek.









March 2008


April 2008


















May 2008


Brought Second Hair Cuts, Tree Frogs, and of course the Game Park and Petting Zoo.












June 2008 


We caught Tad Poles, went Clam Diggin, Visited a Fountain, went for Silly Walks, had TuTu much Fun, and Smelled the Flowers. (yes.....these all were taken in June, but posted later in the summer....I get VERY behind in my photo editing in summer)

what a beautiful way to look back on one's year...
Thanks so much for sharing it...I only became a follower about a month ago so this was really nice to see.
HAPPY NEW YEAR

bellevelma said...

I love the review. Happy New Year, Corey!

Autumn said...

Oh sure way to make me feel like a total failure....lol you know I'm teasing you! It's so wonderful how many fun things you and Sugar shared. I can not believe she is going to be four.. wahhhh! I loved the year in review. Happy New Year Corey!

Aspiemom said...

I loved, loved, loved this. I could look at your pictures all day! I was trying to decided which of these was my favorite - but I can't!!! Do you have a very favorite?

This is a great way to review your year- thanks for taking the time.

anti-supermom said...

Just beautiful photos. I'm so happy that you said hello on my blog. I love this idea - if only I had your talent!

Mary Ann said...

All your photos are so beautiful! I love your year in review. I did this last year too and I think if I can get my rear in gear maybe I will do it this year.

Tabitha Blue said...

So sweet and what a great way to look back through the year... and what a great year!!!! I love Sugar's expressions... she has such an expressive face, and is just too cute. It was amazing to watch her grow just over the course of this blog!

:)

Megan (FriedOkra) said...

Wow! Look how much she grew up in just a year... did that make you catch your breath like it did me? You amaze me, Corey. Those photos were so beautiful - in each month I found "my new favorite ever, of all time" only to find a new one a few frames later. Someday I want you to photograph my kids. I don't think anyone, ever, could do as beautiful a job as you would. And I mean that.

thingsyoudidntdo said...

I can't believe that some of those photos are from so long ago...they all seem like I first saw them just yesterday! Wonderful recap Corey!

Happy New Year!

Jen - Queen of Poo said...

She grew up SO much this year! What wonderful photos. I need to get my camera out more often.

Mama Zen said...

I saw some of my favorites there!

But, like Aspiemom, I was wondering if you have a favorite?

Sandy Toes said...

OH my goodness! Can I tell you how much I just loved looking at your pictures???!!! They are so fun and bright and full of her sweet expressions! Just wonderful!

Looks like a great year to me!

we are reilly said...

what a GREAT way to catch up with you -- I have been blogging, but not reading as much as I used to -- it's just been a crazy year. I used to read you daily, but now I'm lucky if I get over here every couple of months -- it's nice to catch up with you in photos -- looks like a GREAT year! :) LOVE your new, short hair do for locks of love :)

Secret Agent Mama said...

This is my favorite post ever! What a beautiful remembrance of a wonderful year. It's been an honor, a treasure, and a joy to watch Sugar Bear grow.

Much Love Always!

Nap Warden said...

Wow...that is an impressive year!

Megan@SortaCrunchy said...

Isn't it crazy how much they change in a year?! Thanks for sharing this year with us again.

XOXO

napaboaniya said...

It has been a wonderful year filled with joy for me viewing all your pictures :)
Here's wishing you peace,love & joy in the year of 2009!!
I'm also looking forward to more of your lovely shots in 2009 :)

AnnD said...

That must have taken forever to put together! So many people are doing these end of the year posts that I feel like I want to do one too. I just don't know if I can do as well as you! I can't wait to see what 2009 holds for you in terms of photos!!! 2008 was incredible and I bet 2009 will be even more amazing! I am looking forward to learning from you and even copying some of your ideas! hehehe

Momo Fali said...

A pony? Way to set the bar high for the rest of us, Corey!

My favorite is the beach shot. It's perfection!

TuTu's Bliss said...

You are right, I love it here. You're work is amazing. I think the tree frog is my favorite but I love them all. Thank you for sharing. Jen

rachael said...

that is a beautiful review! it was so hard to pick just one picture for each month, and now i kind of wish i had used more :) happy new year!

tommie said...

Have you ever turned your blog posts into one of those books?? I forget where you can do it....but this post would be amazing in a book!

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

What a wonderful recap!

Happy New Year to you!

Christina said...

Wow Corey, this post must have taken some serious time to put together! What a fun look back over the last year. I especially enjoyed the reviews of the months from before I "met" you! I had to keep myself from clicking every single link, or I'd be heere all night. ;o)
Wishing a very happy new year to you and your sweet family, my friend!

Burgh Baby said...

I can not believe how much Sugar Bear has grown up this year . . .

Happy New Year!

Jo Beaufoix said...

Corey that was wonderful. How much have they grown this year? I can't believe our two little monkeys are nearly four. Wow! They started the year still babies but now they're very much little girls. Scary but so wonderful. Hugs.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

LilBear said...
