Photo Round-Up

Becky over at Small Bits is hosting the State Department Weekly Round-up this week and her theme is on photos. This time of year, I can not help but reflect on all that has happened through the year… how can I choose just one photo? Some, who have great photography skills and good cameras, may not be too impressed with some of these shots – that’s not the point. These photos capture a few of my favorite moments from 2010.

Gladiators in Jerash   (January)


Kittens in a window




Visiting Pandora (this movie was a big hit with our family…on the big screen, and on my new phone, which came with the movie installed… I told Santa we might need a copy for our library).


Kittens in a sink


Happy Anniversary


and a pinch for St. Patrick’s Day


Easter eggs in our own backyard, first time ever


Pink toes


Curls, lace, and nail polish go a long way towards making sad girls happy again


End of School!


Peaceful kitties


We did so much in the summer (July – August)! Aqaba, Petra, a visit with Brad’s cousin, an awesome US road trip… this is my favorite moment. The kids contemplating their first ever snorkeling attempt at a reef in the Red Sea. It really sums up the spirit of new adventures.


Back to school


Sleepy September… ah.. blessed routine!

Kittens in training


The quiet, normal, regular, plain ol’ family times at home… these are very important to me. It makes me feel this content.

Wow, you packed so much into one year- it has me yearning to get back overseas again!

:) Hi Becky! Thanks for hosting the round-up! And for the guru credit(!), but honestly, my best talent is simply picking the tools that do stuff automatically, so I do not really have to know what I'm doing. ;)

spectrummymummy - It has been a very full, very good year! I know we are blessed to have the opportunities that we do.

Merry Christmas to you both!
