A Year in Pictures – 2007

December 20, 2007

Here are some pictures to sum up the year. We had lots of fun, most of which didn’t make it to the blog.

There are a lot of photos in this post, so if you have dial-up, go get a cup of tea while this page loads, then come back and view them.

First, pictures of the 2 handsome boys – Spragoon:

All the 4th grade classes make a cake in the shape of NJ. 3 years ago, Spragoon’s class did it by counties – he had Mercer. This year, Adidas’s class did it by regions. This is looking from the north. Hershey’s kisses are the mountains in Sussex county – pretzel sticks are the pines in the Pine Barrens:
