For a someone who takes literally tons of pictures, this was a more than difficult task. But, here are my top 10 picture picks for 2009.
#1 -- The Little Wickies.
I love how they play together now, and how they have become inseparable. I hope everyday they will always be the very best of friends.
#2 -- My cowgirl with her lasso.
This little human being has so much imagination and presence and she is merely four. She simply amazes me.
Maddie had a lot of firsts this year, including her first birthday. This was her first real beach day (it was January). By mid-year she was a true beach bunny.
I loved these bubble outfits on her. She lived in them when the weather was warm. Mo's personality has bloomed this year. She is so happy, sweet and such a delight.
This year Katie and I started to have regular special outings where just the two of us headed out for fun. From movies to Chinese food, we've had some really great times.
#7 -- Our knight in shining armor.
#6 -- Katie the brave.
Fairs, amusement parks and festivals became favorite destinations this year. We learned that she will go on virtually any ride they will let her on.
Papa is the hero in our family so we treated him like royalty on his birthday with a prince party. Katie wore this Cinderella costume religiously throughout the year. Maddie who developed an expertise in roaring, was a lion for Halloween, and also used her roaring talent as a dragon for the celebration.
She is my more is better girl and some of the ensembles she put together were just simply put, incredible.
Katie loves the beach and she loves her Papa. I don't know if she is happier than when she is with him.
Sometimes I feel like they are the reason I was put here on this Earth. That may sound extreme for some but with Song and the girls by my side I have gained such an unbelievable sense of satisfaction and contentment it is almost difficult to describe.
