Our Little Snapshot of 2008

How do you sum up a year!? It's not an easy task...but I tried! I just took some of the highlights. I didn't include the preciousness of each day... I didn't include each visit from the grandparents... and I didn't include every first...but just a snapshot! Our "timeline" doesn't include extravagant trips or fancy outings, but it's perfect!

Hi Brittany,
I've been reading your blog for awhile now (I confessed a few months ago :-) so I'm going to add you to my blogroll if that's okay. It's so much fun reading about sweet Quinn and all the fun that lies ahead in the coming months for Caroline. They are almost one year apart so it was really fun to read what Christmas might be like for Caroline next year.
Love,
Laura

Brittney,
I have been reading your blog for awhile and love it! I was one of Molly's roomates in college and friends with Matt. It has been fun to watch Quinn grow because I have a little boy, Evan, that is just a week or two older (I have since had another baby so he is my big boy now!) Anyway, I finally started a blog and hope I will be as good about catching all the fun memories as you are!
