A Look at Our 2011

2010 was an exciting and fun time for us.  Here's a look at some of our favorite moments.  The links to the blog posts for all of these events are in dark purple.

In January, Kanin's hockey team had a family skate.  Caleb stayed with Mama and Papa but we had a great time skating with Kanin and Gracie.  I think Kanin was kind of impressed that Mommy could actually ice skate.
GracieAnn got her haircut and immediately went from baby to big girl.

There was a "blizzard" and we made snow cream
(Look how little they all look)

In February, I met up with Holly from Where We Can Live Like Jack and Sally and we headed out to meet the Pioneer Woman!

March found Scott and I back in our "Happiest Place on Earth"-Las Vegas.

The best part of the March trip was that our family was able to be there, too!

Easter was blue-themed this year.

In April, the boys in the family shaved their heads to support Debbie and her fight against Breast Cancer.  I'm happy to report that Debbie is cancer-free!

Kanin got to meet one of his WWE favorites and local St Louisan, Randy Orton

May brought Mother's Day was spent my favorite way, at the Cardinals games with my babies.

Caleb had his first haircut.

In June, Kanin had his end of the year parade.  It was his last day as a first grader.

We were honored to walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in honor of our friends and family.

We also were back in Vegas with our friends Sue and Chris.

July is both GracieAnn's and Caleb's birthday.

Kanin started 2nd grade in August.

Kanin and Mommy spent a day together at the Festival of Nations.

In September, we went to the Balloon Glow in Forest Park.

Kanin and Gaga went to their first WWE show.

October, what a month!  We celebrated our 5 year anniversary in Mexico.  It was glorious and I still go there in my dreams.

Our beloved St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series!!

The next week was Halloween.

In November, I finally was able to see one of my very favorite bands, Jason Boland & the Stragglers.

December finally came and it was time to visit Santa Claus.

We had a fantastic Christmas and we are excited for our future in 2012.  Hope you have a Happy New Year!
