Our 2011 in Review

Here's what happened...

In January, we kicked off the new year in my mom's hospital room. She had her gall bladder removed.  We also sold our last house in Moberly, Mo. What a relief!


In Feburary, Jeremy and I went to a youth ministry conference in St. Louis together. It was great to get away from the boys for a weekend and fuel our passion for ministry.


 In March, we traveled to Texas for spring break. We had a great time with Jeremy's family and the boys got to go to the Zoo for the first time.

In April, Jeremy got to preach at our Sunday morning church service. He did great! This helped reaffirm our calling to ministry.

In May, Asa turned one. I now have two ornery toddler boys. I saw my favorite band - Bowling for Soup - in concert for the 4th time! We also went to Texas to celebrate the college graduation of Jeremy's sister, Elaina.

 In June, I kicked off my cake pop business. It went well but I soon found out that I want more in life than making cake pops 24/7.

July was a big month. We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. We spent a  couple of nights at Chateau Avalon. I seriously can't believe it has been 5 years already!  We learned about fireworks safety, courtesy of my brother, Matt. We also celebrated the marriage of my cousin CJ and her new husband Steve.

In August, I must have hit my head. I cannot remember anything from this month!

In September, Noah turned three. I was also able to see Blink-182 in concert with my long-time friend Amanda.

In October, we lost a dear friend of the family. Davie was such a good friend to my brother. He will not be forgotten.

In November, we were able to buy a new car. It gets way better gas mileage than that old truck!

In December, my brave grandfather survived his 12th heart attack. Toughest guy I know!

I'm sure I could have written a post about each of these events but it seems like I never have time to write anymore. I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year!

Santa Claus is coming to town!

As of right now I don't see Santa as being a part of our family's Christmas. Jeremy and I have many reasons but I won't bore you with those. Don't get me wrong- I'm not hating on Santa. After all, I'll never forget the year he brought me my very own keyboard! I remember how excited I was as I brought it into my parents bedroom to serenade them at 5 a.m. on Christmas day. (I'm sure Mom and Dad won't forget either.)

Despite the fact that Santa won't be bringing my children obnoxious musical instruments, Noah is very aware of who Santa is. Santa is like the coolest cartoon character ever at this time. Noah could spot that red coat a mile away. Just this past week someone asked Noah what Santa was going to bring him. Noah in a very excited but matter-of-fact voice replied, "Uhh...reindeer, reindeer, reindeer and uh... reindeer." Goofy kid. He must have forgotten that animals are on the "Do Not Get List" for Christmas gifts.
