As I look back over 2011, it was probably our most special year ever!! The first few months I don't have many pictures. I was pregnant and miserable, and I definitely didn't want to be in any photos, but once May hit choosing which pictures to include proved difficult. Here's to 2011 and all of it's wonderful (and not so wonderful) moments...
In January we took the youth to Acquire the Fire. I managed to make it through that weekend without being too sick.
In March we had 2 baby showers. One by my family and one by our church. We also celebrated our 2 year anniversary. I have a picture the restaurant gave us, but it hasn't been put on the computer yet. ;(
This was Easter Sunday and one of the few pics I have while I was big and pregnant.
In April some of our youth threw us a shower and decorated baby onsies.
May was by far our biggest month. We celebrated several family birthdays including: my sister, my mom, Micah's mom & Micah's. But the biggest birthday we celebrated was Kaden's. He surprised us on Mother's Day!!
In May we also celebrated my sister's graduation from high school.
In June Micah celebrated his first Father's Day.
At the end of June, we went to youth camp. Taking our 7 week old to camp was an experience, but we survived and even had fun at the same time!!
In July we celebrated 4th of July as a family of 3 and we had Kaden dedicated. We also made our first trip to Dallas for another family shower.
We also introduced Kaden to the pool for the first time. And he loved it!!
In August Kaden had a couple firsts. He rolled over for the first time, and he saw the beach for the first time when he went with mommy to a women's retreat.
September was an eventful month as well. We received the "go ahead" from the dr to start solid foods. We took Kaden to his first high school and A&M football games. And we went to the county fair.
October's highlights: We cheered on Aunt Daisy as her volleyball team won district champs. We "chaperoned" two field trips with Grammie's class (Blue Bell Factory & Dewberry Farm). We cheered on the Rangers. We got our first two bottom teeth. We went to the Pumpkin Patch twice. And went to Dallas to meet Uncle Brandon for the first time.
November we went to the Renaissance Festival and Celebrated Kaden's first Thanksgiving.
And we wrapped up our year in December meeting Santa, traveling to A&M for Santa's Wonderland, and celebrating Christmas.
We had a great 2011 with so many things to be thankful for!! We look forward to all God has planned for us in 2012.
