  1. Loved this! What a whirlwind 2008 was for you! Do you and Stephen share a birthday?

  2. lwuertz

    No, mine is the 10th and his is the 22nd, but since all of our family and friends were here that weekend for the shower we decided to do a co-birthday party barbecue on my birthday.

  3. What an exciting year! I love all your knitted projects! What yarn do you use for toys?

  4. The pictures are great. I esp. like the ones of Bean. The one of her with the blanket you knitted is adorable. What kind of camera do you use? They turn out so well!

    I think I shall try to do a picture year in review. It is such a neat idea. Thanks!

  5. lwuertz

    Pretty much just whatever I had on hand. Some of it is acrylic, some wool, some cotton.

  6. lwuertz

    I have a Canon PowerShot G5. It works pretty well if I put it on the rapid fire setting, but other than that it definitely has some draw backs. Eventually I want an SLR, but that will be a long time down the road…

  7. Very cute to see your year in pictures! A lot happened for you in 2008!

  8. Ohh so sweet 🙂 I started a post like this but was up to the deadline on exposaroonie so I just uploaded my favorite one and gave up. Maybe I’ll try again to do the year in review in pictures

  9. lwuertz

    Yeah this definitely took a LONG time to put together. I think I fed Bean 2 or 3 times during the course of working on it and she only eats every couple hours…

  10. Oh my gosh, I can’t believe how big Bean is getting! And so stinkin cute! What a doll. 🙂

    A lot has happened in one year! 2009 is going to be a lot more enjoyable for the two of us, I’m thinking, haha.
