2011 in Photos

Share it Please
Today I'm joining Jessica from Four Plus an Angel in a look back at 2011. The challenge was this:

Just create a post with 12 words or 12 pictures… a little year in review. Pick a word for each month of 2011 or a picture for each, or a 12 word sentence that sums up the year or a 12 picture collage, as long as it’s easy for you to put together and easy for others to read. 

I chose photos - some are my favorites because I think they're great photos. Others are my favorites because of the memories - the people and places.  Here is my 2011!

This is one of my favorite photos, ever.  I had just gotten my Canon Rebel for Christmas, and this was the first photo that came out of my camera that absolutely wowed me.

I don't take many self portraits.  I love this one.

For Sam's 5th birthday, I took him to the Science Center to the Star Wars exhibit - no Danny, just a special day for him.  We had so much fun!

The boys and I spent 18 days in New Jersey with my sister, Lianna.  She is awesome.  They had a lot of fun.  See?

Love.

My cousin Emmy visited from Philadelphia and I love this shot of her and my sister - two of my favorite people.

He is just so happy.

Well, not the best shot of Sam's face (haha) but you can see both their costumes, and they're holding hands!

The boys on Thanksgiving.

This one is awesome because it's just how life is - the kids are distracted or wanting to go, go, go, and I'm trying to get a nice little photo.  I love the look on my Mom's face, amused at both me and my 3rd attempt at the photo and at the kids.

Visiting from the link up.  Your kids' smiles are all so bright that I can't help smiling as well.  Happy 2012!

We took our son to see a Star Wars exhibit too. It changed his life.

That first shot is super amazing! I got my Canon Rebel in Jan of last year but am still figuring it out. I stay on AV mostly but need to just go manual one day a week. Your photos and memories were adorable.
