Since everyone seems to be doing year-end lists, I thought I would do one too. I went through all of my photos and picked one for each month. Not because it was the best photo, but for what it represented that month....
January started with me flying to DC for a weekend get-away with just David. It was wonderful and wouldn't have happened without the help of my mom, Evelyn and Edmee who kept the kids safe and happy while I was away.
In February we started "Skypeing" with David. Even though we talked frequently it meant so much for him and the kids to see each other. They really enjoyed it.
In March we celebrated St. Patrick's Day. And by celebrate, I mean we wore green. I just really liked this picture of the kids together.
In April my first baby turned nine years old. We spent the afternoon at the Mall of America having lunch and playing at Magiquest. It was a great day.
In May, David surprised the kids with a trip home over Mother's Day weekend. They loved having him home.
And just six weeks later in June, he flew home again, but this time to help us drive back with him to spend the rest of the summer in DC. It was awesome.
In July we had our family pictures taken by an extremely talented photographer. I am so glad I had these done! The best souvenir ever!
In August marked the end of our stay in DC. This was the afternoon we left the apartment for Norfolk, VA. The car was BEYOND packed.
September was Gianna's third birthday. We decided to do a DC themed party. Here is the infamous cake....
David started running while he was out east. He ran a 5K in October called the Monster Dash - he didn't dress up in costume, but the kids did!
In November, our nephew Gabrin was baptized and David and I were asked to be his godparents.
And December, our family under one roof celebrating Christmas. May 2011 be just as blessed as 2010!
