I totally forgot today was Thursday, I mean, I KNEW it was Thursday, because, duh its Thursday, but I forgot that today was “You Capture – year in review” over at Beths – I should be folding laundry. I finished this post this weekend and am glad I did, because I havent been able to focus on anything other than, well, *stuff*. With Trina…and my parents issues, and what not…But this morning (afternoon) when I looked over my post, I wasnt happy with the way it was…but its Thursday, and I dont have time (or patience, motivation, or anything else for that matter) and so I will just stick with what I came up with last week…
We had a lot of snow. Nik took a lot of pictures this month, a lot of which arent worth reposting!!

We spent some time on the Oregon Coast and saw some AWESOME sunsets.We returned from our road trip after mixing our days up and accidentally extending our trip by another two days. We spent the 4th on the Ferry.
Not much happened in August. The sun started to go away, and we began preparing for “Fall.” We went fishing a few times, and watched our pastors dog.
What can I say about December? We spent a majority of the month preparing for a holiday that didnt seem like it was. We shopped, baked, packed, wrapped, rushed, and hurried about. Christmas came and went.
