I always hated it when TV shows did the cop-out flashback episodes. You know the ones where everyone sits around the couch and reminsces about older episodes, just because the writers couldn't think of anything better? Well that's what this is, a totally cop-out post. Especially since the vast majority of you won't be clicking on any of these flashback links, because you hated it when the sticoms did those darn episodes, too. But, whatever. It's my blog and I'll link to a bunch of old posts if I want to.
Memorable moments in 2008 month by month.
Sophia turns 18 months and finally gets to go to nursery! It is a day for celebration throughout the land (and a photo shoot).
I go down to adjudicate a music festival in St. George, not realizing that I was putting my life on the line and nearly dying on the drive home.
We wire our entire life savings (not much at all) to Spain so Joel can compete in a conducting competition.
Entered the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking Hall of Fame for the third (and final) time. Did not win.
Entered the Five Minutes for Mom 1,000 dollar photo contest, and actually won, thus sort of making up for the life savings being depleted so Joel could conduct Pierrot Lunaire in Europe.
Celebrated 9 years of marriage. It's an accomplishment worth mentioning.
Called 911 and tattle-taled on the person who left their kids in the car in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
Cried like a baby after dropping Chloe off at her first day of Kindergarten.
Had a hankering for some "What's Up, Doc?" but couldn't find it at Hollywood video. Instead, it miraculously came on my television that very night. Miracles really do happen.
Temporaraily lost my mind and sewed Wizard of Oz Halloween costumes for the entire family. I had so much fun being insane that I'm thinking of doing it every year.
Cried like a baby after seeing my oldest child baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Realized that I am extremely blessed, even though this was an extremely difficult year for me.
