2011 Year in Review

Winter - Started off the New Year with the flu so bad I had to drive myself the ER.  Upside - found out our local wellness center has an ER that is clean, fast and efficient!  D was able to finally wear this adorable tuxedo onesie and he was able to eat food made in my baby food maker!  (Very uneventful I know.)

Spring - D's first opening day, Easter, my first mother's day and Memorial Day which included matching shirts with his cousin.  D and I took our first road trip together to Columbus for a baby shower for his future girlfriend(s).

Mother's Day

Summer -  It sadly started with a large part of our family moving to Houston, leaving a hole in my heart.  D got to meet my Dad's side of the family at our annual 4th of July reunion.   We all took our first trip to Wyoming with my husband's family, all 20 and a half of us.  (Take that Modern Family we did it first!)  Andy and I got a night out to go my cousin's wedding.  D attended his first Canal Days which is my hometown's summer festival.  My sister in law turned the big 3-0.  And it ended on a high note with my roommate Megan (and Jim Thome) coming home from NC to remind us how old we are and that we started college a very long 10 years ago.

A lot of great-grandbabies!  

Fall - Began with our sweet friends getting engaged and the last baseball games of the season.  D got to cheer on the marathon runners.  Our Texas family headed home for a fun filled weekend of birthdays, a baptism and a meet & greet with our newest niece.  I started blogging!  And we kept busy with D's first birthday , Andy's dirty thirty, a first haircut by Aunt Missy, our 5 year anniversary,  and multiple football games.  Keeping true to our baseball roots we were taught to do as much as possible (i.e. have babies, get married) in the offseason and our family never disappoints in the fall!
