Another Year Almost Gone

Today is December 30th - the next-to-last day of 2007.

Where did all the other ones go? And what happened?


April 17th: Marcy, our first grandchild, turned 7 (!).

First Sunday in May: Agnes and I danced in the InterState Amateur DanceSport Challenge. Since we were dancing, nobody took any pictures of us. Drat!

June 21-25: mini family reunion in to see Marcy dance in her recital (oh, so cute!).

July 8th: Joe, our second grandchild, turned 4. He likes photography, just like his grandpa.

August 20th: Leya, our fourth grandchild, was born.

September 15th: Agnes and I celebrated our 25th anniversary.

September 23rd: Noah, our third grandchild, turned 1. He enjoyed the cake.

November 7th: I turned 56 ... officially closer to 60 than to 50. Gasp!

November 22nd: Agnes and I hosted the family reunion and Thanksgiving Feast at our house for 21 people. The part of my hair that wasn't gray before is gray now.

December 27th: Posted the 500th entry to this blog.

Today: time to wake Agnes up and get her ready to compete with her student, Phil, in the 2007 Yuletide Ball DanceSport Championships. Come back tomorrow for the pictures.

Gotta run.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

Nice post, Bilbo. I love seeing your family - so beautiful :-)

Lovely picture of you and Agnes - I guess she fell for the boutonniere gag?

That was a great way to recap the year. I also like looking at the photos of your family. Your grandchildren certainly are the center of it, as they should be :)
