Happy New Year from our home to yours...
I went back through my blogging year and picked out photos to highlight in my new year's post. However, none of them saved and then I got frustrated.
At the beginning of 2010 we took Nora's binky away and I began to show a slight baby bump. In February, Daniel and the kids made a snowman family and the mama sported a sweet baby bump herself. Daniel and I went away overnight for the first time since having the kids. We hosted Easter here at our house as I continued to grow. In the summer we did alot of neat things! We went to 3 zoos and we took our first official family vacation to St. Louis. It was a special time for us.
Miss Mabel Audrine joined our crew in mid-July and I threw a rockin birthday party for the redheads just 2 weeks later. As the summer came to a close we started homeschooling. We visited the pumpkin patch, as always and at the end of fall Daddy got a new job.
In the middle of fall, Aunt Rachel and Harper came to live with us for awhile. I started picking up much more business with my photography and we planned and hosted a pretty awesome Halloween party. I met my weight loss goal. In November we enjoyed Thanksgiving with our families and in December the kids rode in the Christmas parade with Poo-Paw.
Daddy & Mama finished off the year with our 6th anniversary and a date night.
2010 was amazing.
Mabel was, by far, the greatest gift. It was so special to look back on all we have done and how we have changed and evolved as a family, in our friendships and in the Lord.
Life has sure changed in every way for the better.
I am so thankful for 2010.
Sad to be leaving it behind but thankful to embrace a new year and all that God has in store for us with the passing days.
To just be in the moment. To try a little harder to be still.
And to eat really good chocolate whenever I get the chance.
