2008 Year in Review

2008 was both a memorable and historic year in many ways.

Here are a few links that I thought summed up the year well:

MSNBC 2008 Year in Review

The Year in News Pictures

I also chose the photos that I thought best captured the year in the life of my family as well. While many view a new year as a chance for a new beginning, I believe it's important to remember that every day brings a new chance to start over. Looking back at 2008 and looking forward to is my year in review:


The beginning of the year brought snowy weather!

Here are Katie and Josiah playing in our backyard.

Katie and her snowgirl, with rainbow buttons, of course!

Josiah, so proud of his 'snowman'.


And so it starts...
