2008 in pictures ...

I thought it would be fun to make a slide show of photos from 2008 and pick one from each month of the year. Summertime got a little tough because I had so many to choose from. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the things we saw and did over 2008. Best wishes to you and yours for the New Year!


  1. That *was* fun! You take some great pictures! It is beautiful out there! I still can't imagine seeing bears on a regular basis. I'm not very comfortable with that, but am happy you are. And lookie you kayaking (is that how you spell that?). Awesome. And the Wiggles (siiigh). And your Thanksgiving table was beautiful. I'm hungry just seeing it. I want to go stand inside a tree now.

    Seriously...loved them all. Very cool presentation too! :) Happy New Year!

  2. Oooooooo, I LOVE the one of you (I suppose that's you) and the boys inside the tree. So primal. All the pictures are great, but that one is my absolute favorite.

    It's been a pleasure reading your blog this past year. Here to reading more Next Year!

  3. Sunshine -- Thanks. Your reply made me smile.

    Bish -- That's my daughter, Nicole in the tree with the boys. Fun picture. I'm afraid if I tried to squeeze in there, the whole thing would fall down. LOL! That tree is in Glacier National Park on a trail called the "Trail of the Cedars". It's a fun little walk.

    Happy New Year to you both!

  4. Great slideshow, Rena. Thanks so much for sharing. :)


  5. Cool Rena.Isaac and I enjoyed looking at those over and over.I think my favorite is the kayaking picture.What a beautiful spot! The bear is amusing too.

  6. That was fun Rena! Happy 2009!


  7. Rean, those pictures are amazing!!!! I love all the nature and kiddo shots!!!! (I can't use enough exclamation points! And, not to mention, you are gorgeous! Love your picture! You know, I've seen your "younger day" pictures and I think you're like Jodi Foster. You get prettier and prettier.

    I'd love to know more about the "hollow tree trunk" picture. I have one of those that I wrote about in my NaNo project, though I've not actually been inside of one. Prechance you have any more photo's of that?

    Happy New Year!!! (Have I used up my exclamation quota for the year? :0)

  8. I especially like January and December.


    Making memories all year.

  9. Thank you Gale, Leanne, Stephanie, Nancy, Christy and Kim! Happy New Year to you all.

    Christy -- I do have more pictures of that tree and I'll try to get some to you soon. It's a fun stop on the trail.

    Thanks for all of your sweet comments. I hope 2009 is a blessed year for you all.

  10. Oh! I absolutely loved the slide show. Very clever.

    Happy New Year!

  11. Thanks Linda & Christina! Happy New Year to you too!

    (Sitting at home in my sweat pants, eating peppermint ice cream on New Year's Eve -- such a party animal I am!)
