The Year In Pictures (Picture Heavy)

In January… Look at that short hair!

February- Valentine’s…

First snow…
and being baptized at church.
And of course, Chinese New Year!
Three years old in March.
And first Easter in April.
Cousin Quinn’s graduation from the Citadel in May.
Her first trip to the zoo…
And her first beach trip in June!
Her big girl bed…
And a trip to Chicago!
Her first Fourth of July…
And a trip to grandma and grandpa’s house, in July.
Little M was home one year in August.
And had a boat day in Annapolis .
She had her first day of school!
And celebrated her half birthday in September.

First day of Fall. Yes, I celebrate these things…

First time at the pumpkin patch in October.

Halloween in October, as a cute cat.
Thanksgiving, much better than her first one…
Meeting up with a friend from her orphanage in December,

And Christmas!
What a great and busy year this has been! Can’t wait to see what the next year brings us!
