Favorite Things Friday

We made it my friends, another week down in the books :)
Before we start what my favorite things are, I'd really like to share a thought with you, I was watching the Barbara Walters special about the most fascinating people of 2010, and her first person was the actress Betty White. Sweet Betty said something that's had me thinking all evening and morning. She said her parents told her they never wanted to hear her say, "I didn't realize how blessed I was at that moment until now." Her parents told her to stop and realize it! That was so profound to me...I feel like I need to start realizing as well. What a great thought! :)

Ok, for any of you that know me and/or have gotten to know me through this blog, you know that without a doubt, I LOVE/ADORE/AM MAD ABOUT pictures. And with the Christmas holiday rapidly approching us, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Christmas memories in photos :)

 Memories of Christmas's at Granny and Papa's :)
 Memories with my brother and sister - please don't mind my HUGE bangs
 Our family Christmas photo at Snoqualmie Falls
 The lighting of the Christmas tree in downtown Seattle
 Sophie's first Christmas <3
 Ugly Christmas sweater/ties :)
 Christmas 2008 - the night before Bryan proposed
 Our Christmas present to Hanna last year - TAYLOR LAUTNER
She loved it! :)

I can't wait to take more picture memories this Christmas!!!
Happy Friday everyone! 15 days!!!

  5. I love your pictures : ) Especially the ones with you, your husband, and baby. Christmas is so much fun. I will be finishing my shopping tomorrow - I am crazy but going to toysrus tomorrow morning with my mom.

    You have been doing digital scrapbooking? What program are you using? I am going to do some tutorials but it will be with Photoshop unless I can find something else to use....

  6. Such a neat idea! I really need to find some of my old Christmas photos and do this! It would be wonderful!

    I found you through one of the blogs listed on the For the Love of Blogs Hop, a link on umm, This Writer's Journey maybe? Anyway, love the design and I'll be sticking around!
