Snow, lots of snow.
We had to tame the climber with this ugly tent (still in use):
Declan officially moves from baby to little man.
As that happened, we saw more of this:
Marriage conference, hotel and alone time with my husband. A rarity.
Warmer weather + park = Declan in heaven.
(notice the scraped arm? pretty much a fixture for Decs)
My Aunt from Texas visited. Always a fabulous time.
We celebrated 7 years of marriage at a local vineyard.
Erik, Jess and baby Evie move back to L-town from Seattle!
Decs gets the "big chop" in time for some hot Nebraska weather.
Always a fun time with the cousins!
Many days spent at the spray park.
Daddy and Decs on the 4th:
Many good times with Life Group buddies:
Bye-bye front tooth! Also, first swimming lessons.
Some more cousin love! Summertime is just the best.
It's hot, hot, hot!
Declan turns TWO. We celebrated in 95 degree temps outside. Brilliant. Good times besides the sweating.
Our first ever vacation! We took a long road trip from Nebraska to Austin, Texas. Decs snoozing in the car:
At my Grandaddy's 80th b.day party in Texas:
I also celebrated my 29th b.day.
Annual Mahoney State Park trip.
Cheered on the Huskers. They needed all the cheering they could get this season.
Fun at the pumpkin patch with the sister-in-laws.
Declan was a little pirate for Halloween.
Mark turned 30 and we had a big birthday bash.
Celebrated Thanksgiving with a near death turkey frying:
Enjoyed mild temps with a T.Giving day football game.
First time decorating gingerbread house.
Hung out with birthmom!
Declan celebrated 2010 with exuberance.
Last year was a year of joy, love, family and blessings. We also met many valleys that made us hug each other a little tighter.
In 2011 I look forward to new memories! And a new baby?! Hmmm. We'll see. :)
Happy New Year!!!!
