A Savvy Year In Review - 2010

January

We ring the new year in...
Begin our 3rd month of living with my inlaws after selling our house...
Our marriage walks down a pretty dark road...
You all rally around us and pray (I’m still moved by the love and encouragement when I read those comments)...
Kinley & Raya start walking...
And we finally find our new home.

February
We celebrate 7 years of marriage...
Our marriage starts to heal
We start to completely remodel our fixer-upper...
And I decide to take all 5 girls shopping for my new jeans.

March
I turn 29...
I confront Target about the worst display ever...
The girls have spring break...
And we look forward to warmer weather.

April
Reese and Charlotte turn 4...
I get on a Mommy Soapbox...
We continue working on our new home – it feels like it will never be done...
And I realize that I’ve lost my cool.

May
Eric turns 32...
We finally move into our house...
I rejoice…and rejoice…and rejoice...
And I have an awkward conversation with the AT&T lady about our non-working internet.

June
Ella turns 6...
I find out we are expecting – we are surprised, but that quickly turns to excitement...
I end up miscarrying...
And you all seriously help carry me through with your sweet comments and love.

July
We celebrate the 4th ...
The girls and I spend every day at the pool...
I admit that we might be addicted to summer...
And I tell you all why Eric is the one.

August
Summer starts to wind down...
I carry around 45 extra pounds...
The Dr tells me that I will probably have trouble getting pregnant again...
I get a positive pregnancy test :)...
And our sweet Ella girl starts 1st grade.

September
I have a really, really rocky 1st trimester...
I start baking Pumpkin goodies...
Reese and Charlotte start preschool...
And I tell you all that we’re expecting!

October
Fall shows up for good...
I confess I might be addicted to Target...
We enjoy crisp, cool days at the park...
And we have an ultrasound that shows a healthy babe growing inside.

November
Kinley and Raya turn 2...
I share a story about our chaos with (in)courage...
I start decorating for Christmas...
We have a relaxing Thanksgiving...
And we find out that we are expecting A BOY!

December
We play in the snow...
Spend Saturdays at home just being together...
You all help us figure out what we are going to name this little guy...
And we have a great, relaxing, much needed Christmas break.

Whew! So here we are.We are looking forward to a new year, and finding out what God has in store for us – like a sweet baby boy :)!!
I hope you all have a great New Years!!

(please excuse us while we add/tweak some things on the ol' blog)
