What can I say besides we have truly been blessed. We live a simple life. Our small town doesn't have anything fancy, but it seems we don't need all of that extra distraction. We have enough of that in the chaos of three kids. :) 2010 was full of happiness, stress, laughter, messes, family, LAUNDRY, growth, more LAUNDRY and lots of love. Since I hope to blog once a month during 2011, here is our year in review from the things I missed.

JANUARY- Two squishy cousins meet.

FEBRUARY- Date night. Sushi plus our favorite tag-a-long.

MARCH- Being at the Happiest Place on Earth apparently causes simultaneous mood changes.

APRIL- The LONGEST Easter egg hunt in history. (Notice the last egg in this picture that they could NOT find. Forever.)

MAY- Fat baby in a little tub.

And a Spongebob party to remember.

JUNE- Swimming lessons and sun-kissed kids.

Bonding with baby.

JULY- Fourth of July in Beaver. With the people we love. Paradise.

Family picnics just cause we felt like exploring. Gosh I LOVE July. The business is closed and we just get to PLAY.

More playing.

Camping with Grandma and Grandad. Making incredible memories every year.

AUGUST- Two kids start school. And one mom starts an adventure of her own in our new preschool. Love it. Especially the extra time I get to spend with my girl before kindergarten.

My perfect angels. Okay, rarely perfect, ALWAYS angels. :)

SEPTEMBER- Ballet. Her favorite thing ever.

Fantasy Football draft cake pops. The boys didn't even notice them of course. :) But they must've given Ro good luck because he won again for the fourth time. I can brag FOR him, right?

Mason discovered the camera.

OCTOBER- And she's off! Life changes as we have a new explorer on our hands.

Little Bo Peep, her adorable sheep, and some intense army dude make an appearance.

And my girl fell in love with a pumpkin...

NOVEMBER- Ro enjoys this moving target for the Nerf gun. JK. We are not THAT cruel.

Lu is not fond of her first carousel ride.

December- I can't believe she is already one.

The Christmas card we totally meant to send.

Little people told Santa how good they were this year...

Turns out they WERE pretty good. (Mase has just noticed the full-sized basketball hoop in the living room Christmas morning.)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May the next year be blessed with less laundry and lots of time to blog. :)
