A Year in Review: 2011

We had a wonderful year and were blessed in many ways. I thought I would share with you this quick recap of our year.

We started the year out with a bang...celebrating the boy's first year of life with a Dr. Suess Thing 1 and Thing 2 Party.
They attended their first festival.

Went to Shreveport and visted Ana (Nahna) and Marc

Celebrated their 2nd Easter.
Had lots of fun in the sun

 Got all packed up to move and the house fell through.
 Put our house on the market and at 9 pm the night before we were to begin our 9 day vacation to Colorado we had a contract on our house.
Went on vacation to Colorado with two toddlers. Clocked in about 50 hours spent in the car during those 9 days. We also stopped in Kansas to visit Kevin's family on our way home. 

Came back home from Colorado and we had less than a month to pick out a house, buy it, move out of the old and into the new one. All hope was restored when we found THE house that was perfect for us. 
The boys made lots of messes.




....but their willingness to clean made up for it.

Went to their first college football game.
Dressed up as Fred and Barney for Halloween.
Kevin turned 30.

My children found many ways to almost give me a heart attack. AKA climbing EVERYTHING.


We celebrated our 2nd Christmas as a family.
We celebrated the boy's 2nd Birthday.
On New Years Eve we had their birthday party (lots more about that later). I can't think of a better way to end the year than celebrating their lives. Afterall, two years ago we ended the year by bringing them home from the hospital.

Here is to a great 2012 and that it will be filled with even bigger and better things for our family even though it is hard to imagine things could be much better than they already are. We are so blessed!
