Happy 2012 y’all! I’ve decided to take a highlight tour of 2011. I am not ready to assess the year, just to look back on the highlights. I do plan to assess our school year, as I am feeling need of some changes. But for now here is how it was:
Happy New Year 2011!
We are oh so grateful that the cold doesn’t last but for a few days!
We celebrated Godzilla’s 12th birthday with the “Jaws Skateboard Cake.”
Lots of celebration in February!
Xin Nian Kuai Le!
We welcomed in the Year of the Rabbit.
Our little Empresses!
Second, we celebrated Big Tuna’s 19th birthday with my amazing :) 16-layer, Fiery, Power Ranger Cake!
March was a little quieter; however, there was a birthday.
Happy Birthday Captain Daddy!
April 15th brought an end to Tax-Season!!!
And Easter-egg hunting!
We journeyed to Washington D.C. on an extended “fieldtrip.”
We said goodbye to our 16-year old dog, Coco.
June brought the end of our second year of homeschooling.
Big Tuna completed his first year in college.
And a “Gotcha” Day celebration with The Princess.
The month turned to sadness as my sweet MIL, Marie, passed away.
She was greatly loved, and is terribly missed.
Some “normalness” returned as we started off a new school year.
See how happy we are?
Very funny, Godzilla!
Celebrated The Queen’s 7th birthday with a Pony Party!
Captain Daddy and I celebrated 22 years of marriage;
Our fishing trip to Harkers Island;
And Trick-or-Treating with a Mermaid Princess, a Ladybug, and Godzilla as Big Tuna.
The Princess lost her first tooth!
The month began as we celebrated The Princess’ 6th birthday…
with pierced ears,
and a Diva Party!
Still enjoying beach weather…
We are looking forward to the New Year, and thanking God for all of the blessings He has bestowed on us this past year.
