Since everybody else is doing it...

I haven't been writing much lately and I apologize to those of you who look for new posts from me every day... Life with a 2.5 year old and a 5 month old is pretty crazy, and any time I do have a chance to write a post I often feel like doing other things instead (like sleep, or shower, or zone out with a book).

But since I've recently read year-in-review posts from my sister-in-law and husband, I thought I could add a little one myself. Especially since I created a poster of pictures through Shutterfly -- something I've done the last three years, which gets hung in our dining room. In chronological order:

  1. Abby is old enough to enjoy playing in the snow.
  2. NorthPointe's homecoming.
  3. Debbie was about 36 weeks pregnant and I was about 20 weeks at Critter & Ian's wedding.
  4. Abby loves books, and Abby loves Curious George (we got an iPad this year and she watches cartoons in the mornings)
  5. Rocky graduated from Cornerstone with his Masters Degree.
  6. Rocky and I went to the Alive Music Festival with the youth group -- when I was 34 weeks pregnant.
  7. Abby loves hanging out with Opa and Oma at the lakehouse.
  8. More lakehouse fun.
  9. Abby's first Detroit Tigers game, with Staperts, Westrates, and Poppens.
  10. Go 'igers!
  11. Abby & I went to storytime at the library each week.
  12. Abby's ready to be a big sister.
  13. The year all this stuff happened.
  14. Eleanor Gracelyn was born on August 4.
  15. First sister pic.
  16. Ellie is constantly active and alert.
  17. Abby still loves Sami -- unless Sami is sitting in her chair. Or on her toys. Or in her room.
  18. Just a cute pic of a sleeping baby. :) 
  19. Rocky's dad got a Hobie Cat -- one of the highlights of the lakehouse summer.
  20. Abby is following in her mommy's footsteps -- she loves music. 
  21. Hanging out with Presley & Lucy. 
  22. Ellie's baptism
  23. Happy baby
  24. Abby was Doc McStuffins for the lakehouse Halloween party. 
  25. Just another cute pic of Ellie. :)
  26. Ellie and James -- 4 months apart. First crush? 
  27. Abby and daddy love playing at the park
  28. Sisters!
  29. Abby's Christmas tree
  30. I love my girls.
It's been a great year, here's to a great 2013!


  1. i love how the hobie cat is part of all of our year reviews. :-)

  2. Don't you worry about it we sure understand. But I sure hope you had a merry xmas and a happy new year. Everything will get easier later.

  3. Cute collage! Your girls are absolutely adorable.

    Everyone seems to cut back on their posting schedule in the new year. It happens! We're all busy, and I'd rather read a good post from someone when they're ready than read a boring post from someone who's determined to post something every day.
