2008 What a year


2008 was quite a year; Filled with Great times, Hard Times, Sad times. The birth of a new grand daughter, started our year; then we nearly lost her when she was a week old. She survived and is doing great as we are only weeks away from her first birthday.  We adopted a new dog in March, a few months before we lost our beloved Rex (our collie). Birthdays, A Wedding and  anniversaries were celebrated. Visits to California were frequent and fun.  Family visits from CA were frequent too. I survived a broken arm in September and an M.S. exacerbation in November. 2009 starts out with me feeling ok and ready for some New Year's Resolutions....

I started this slide show of 2008 days ago and it took days to delete pictures so a. this would fit on my blog; b. It would fit to the song I used & c. So that it wouldn't take too long to watch. I take way too many pictures.  

My family, my friends, my blogging friends; you've all lifted me up this year; I hope I've done the same for you.

I hope, if you take the 4 minutes to watch 2008, that you enjoy it. I hope 2009 is a wonderful year for you all. 
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today

Loved your choice for the song! That must have taken a long time to put together. My husband is putting one together for our grand daughters first birthday party in 2 weeks. What a great family you have Betty.

Absolutely Betty, thanks for sharing. You squeezed quite an amount of pictures into the slide show. Were these from this year only?

I can tell from all the smiles and the family gatherings that yours is a happy family. I think that's why we can relate so good.

Thanks Jose.. All of these photos are from this year.. Only a very small % of the pictures I've taken this year.
I agree; we both have happy families - that is probably why we relate so good
