2011... Over Already!

How is it we are already at the close of yet another year? They are going by so fast! I can remember what we were doing last New Year's. 2011 was a great year and I hope 2012 is only better. The only thing I can say is I wish time would slow down some. The years are flying by at warp speed! Here are just a few things that happened in 2011:

-We joined our church we had been going too off and on for over 2 years in January
-Me and Ben celebrated 8 years of marriage in May
-Emma turned 4 in June
-Brooks started Mother's Day Out this summer (I could cry, oh wait...I did)
-Emma took her first year of swim lessons
-We took our family vacation in August to Panama City Beach
-I turned 30 in August (gasp!)
-Emma started 4K & her 2nd year of dance
-Ben turned 31 in October (he's still older then me...yippeee)
-Brooks turned 2 in November

There are a lot of other things that happened on 2011 that was just a quick run down!

Here are some random pictures from my phone I thought I would share.

Hope 2011 was good to everyone and 2012 is even better!

Sneaky Emma...

So 2 Saturday's ago, I was getting ready for that night and Emma snuck and got my phone and started snapping pictures of Bella. It made me laugh so hard. She posed her all over the house. Here is some of what she took.

Christmas 2011

Emma Bean coming down the stairs! I love her crazy hair!

Brooks seeing the tree and his stuff for the first time.

Emma and Brooks opening their stockings waiting on Nana, Nanny and Poppy to get there.

He was excited about his big boy underwear he got!

Checking out her new buggy from Nana & Poppy!

Trying out his new buggy from Nana & Poppy!

Looking at their new unicorn and puppy blankets Santa brought!

Playing "chapel" with their new guitars

I would say they both made Santa's "good" list and he was very good to them. We are so blessed to have such great family and friends too, who help spoil our children as well! Later that day we went to my dad's and then back to my mom's. I didn't get any other pictures then trying to attempt a family picture at my mom's and Brooks wanted no part! I think my mom got one with him included but this is what I got!

We hope you had a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve...Part 2

Once we got home the fun began getting ready for Santa and his reindeer!

Ready to put cookies out for Santa.

Bella & Mitchell wanted in the picture. They left Kit Kat's with the crackers and water for them because Emma said they MUST like them because they ate a lot of them while they were here. ;)

One last picture with Bella...

One last picture with Mitchell...

Santa's cookies and milk and Bella and Mitchell's water, crackers and Kit Kat's for later on their way back!

Putting the reindeer food out!

One last picture in front of the tree.

Off to bed we all went and Santa came!!
