In 2011 we:

welcomed our third daughter

took swimming lessons

(I) chopped my hair

took up Insanity - I lost 50 lbs, Rob lost 15 (and got ripped!)


(I) loved my calling as the Young Women's President

Rob lost a bad job, and then was blessed to quickly find a much better one!  


hiked a lot

spent holidays with Rob's family

went to my dad's wedding in Chicago - and somehow didn't get a picture with the kids and my dad!

saw one of our favorite bands in concert - in the rain

lost first teeth - some more naturally than others

had the time of our lives at family camp (and can't wait to go again in August!)


pierced ears

and celebrated Christmas like it was going out of style

Can't ask for a better year that that, now can I?

Happy New Year, friends!!

BDEM:  My dad got us some gift cards for Christmas, and I'm going to use the money to re-vamp my bedroom.  I bought the bedspread today, and am looking forward to putting it all together - then buying the finishing touches!

I'm so jealous I did not think to do a blog post like this one and by now I am way too tired to think about it!!!! But mark my words: I am copying you and doing it next year! Happy New Year!

Loved this! What a great year you've had!

I'm so lucky to have you as my blogging buddy--I never fail to be inspired by your BDEMs, and by the love you have for your kids, and by the positive outlook you always radiate. YOU ARE AWESOME!

Here's wishing you a fabulously fantastic 2012!!!
