A New Year's Eve Retrospective

It won't be long 'till 2008 will be history and we will welcome in a new year. I thought it might be fun to look back over the last 12 months and see what 2008 was like for us here in O Hi O. Wanna' join me on that journey? Let's go...
January - It was cold and...
Mommy had just come home from the human VET hospital - we made the best of a bad situation! HAM!!! was involved!
February - I celebrated my first blogoversary!
Complete with sardines!
March - We welcomed Siegfried and Roy to our home.
April - My beautimus calico sisters turned 10 years old!
May - Diamond is published in a Mutts book. We got Mommy a copy for Mother's Day. She got leaky.
June - The story of Rocky the Baby Raccoon. Daddy saves a critter.
July - It was time for the coldbox meme!
August - Well, August was not a good month. We lost many dear friends and it seemed that there was one tragedy after another. We decided to celebrate Mommy's birthday with a commentathon. It was good.
September - I decided to go up on the rooftop and give the 'rents a heart attack!
October - Mommy shows her most favorite photo of me.
November - My blog got a makeover, I love it!
December - Mommy is exposed as the C.C.L. of our town.

That is a very nice retrospective. Since I am still new to the Cat Blogosphere, it helped me to know you better.

My mom says she hopes 2009 is a lot better than 2008 has been.

Cory said...

Wow! We didn't meet you until October or so...and we had no idea that Diamond is in the Mutts Shelter stories book! We LOVE Mutts! We even have a little pink sock (Jonesie plays with it, but I prefer large boot socks). That was a great retrospective. Have a fabulous 2009!

Happy New Year to your wonderful family!:)
