Wow, it seems like just yesterday we were at my father-in-law's bringing in Aubrey's first New Year and making comments on Dick Clark's countdown. You must all remember, right? "16, 15, 14, 12, 10, err, 11.." Not trying to poke fun, just thinking that the man should know when to pass the torch.
Anyway, I made this photo post in my Livejournal last night and decided to copy it to here. It's basically just a picture dump from the last year. I also need to do a recap of any progress I've made in my list (I don't even remember if I have.. I'll have to skim over it to see!). If so, I'll make a separate post for it. This deserves its own!
If you missed any of these events, I provided links back to the posts that I wrote about them. :)

And I know getting professional pictures done with your friends is really cheesy, but a couple weeks ago when Goldie & I were at the mall, Sears had this little event going on and you got to spin a wheel and whatever you landed on was what you got. Well, we both landed on a free 10x13 premium portrait so we decided to get pictures of the 3 of us done. I'm going to use my coupon to get a new family portrait of me, Keith & Aubrey. I also signed up for their portrait club and any time I decide to go in and get her pictures taken, I can get a free 8x10 and not even have to buy anything else. Isn't that amazing? I could go in every single day for the next YEAR and get a free 8x10. So of course, the possibilities are endless. If Keith thinks our house is a "shrine to Aubrey" now, he hasn't seen ANYTHING yet! ;) I also want to get pictures of just me & Aubrey (wearing her 'Mommy Loves Me' shirt, obviously!) and just Keith & Aubrey (in what else but her 'My Daddy Is My Prince' shirt!)
But anyway, these are the pictures we decided on:
This was the 8x10 I chose
This was the 10x13 Goldie got.
But enough about that, I hope you all have a wonderful, SAFE New Years Eve! I will see you in 2011! :)
