2011 Flashback

2011 has been a great year of changes and excitement.
Here is a little flashback of what went on
January- The year started out rough with the passing of my Grandpa Ron then Madi and I paid a visit to all our wonderful family out in Arizona, Joe started the school semester
February- Not much happened I guess lol I can't remember.
March- Joe turned 26
April- Joe and I had our 4 year anniversary and Madi turned 2.
May- Joe and I moved to the apartments we are in now
June- We visited our best friends out in Chicago
July- I turned 26 and we found out we were going to have another baby
August- Started and stopped potty training Madi, Joe started school again
September- Went to Joe's uncle in Eminence, MO and had a float trip
October- Started to potty train Madi with success this time! Found out we are having a boy this time around
November- Had our first Thanksgiving at our place
December- Joe finished up the semester ate lots of good food and celebrated the holidays Uncle Cole and Grandma and Grandpa Rich came to visit.

She got RIO liked she asked for from Santa (We have watched it now 4 times lol)

Christmas dinner we set up my Mom's fine China we really only get it out once or twice a year!
Christmas this year was great! We had my Grandma and Grandpa Rich and my Uncle Cole come in town. We only get to see them about once or twice a year which is just not enough. We ate tons of good food visited played games (scrabble mostly). Ate some more LOL. Watched RIO entirely too many times. It was great. Since I can remember we have always spent Christmas Eve with my Grandma (my mom's mom) and Grandpa Rich and then Christmas with my Grandpa Ron (my Mom's dad). This year in January my Grandpa Ron passed away and unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the funeral. So this year at Christmas it really hit me that he wasn't here anymore. I guess it became a reality. RIP Grandpa Ron you are missed. I will miss your jokes and your giving us Cashews every year for Christmas and McDonald's gift certificates.

I am very excited as to what this new year has to bring for me and my little family. I am getting super excited/nervous to have this baby boy join our family. I am almost 30 weeks along only 10 more to go its going to fly by. Bring it on 2012 I am ready for whatever you have to offer me. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and will have a great New year!
