Happy 2011!

The boys and I started the New Year festivities off early with a trip to Ashe*ville to see our favorite band, The Av*ett Bro*thers!

I cannot believe it is already 2011! A lot of exciting things to happen this year, including my graduation!

Obviously 2010 was an amazing year in our family, as we went from being a family of 7 to a family of 9 in June as we met Charlie in Chongqing, and Gracie in Nanjing a few days later. 

And there was nothing like celebrating the new year than making new, lasting traditions with the very two who have defined this past year. Mom picked up smores stuff, party hats, and sparklers and there was a little party in our backyard (a couple of hours early, of course) with smores, and all kinds of little fireworks... confetti poppers, sparklers, and the little popper things. They all had a blast and even said that it was better than Christmas!

We celebrated 2011 some more in the morning with doughnuts! Going to get doughnuts is always a hit at our house and Saturday morning was no different!

Our New Years weekend has been memorable and fun, and I will be the first to say that I'm SO not looking forward to heading back to school tomorrow. 

Happy New Year!!!

And I'll try to be a little better of a blogger this year... starting with pictures from our White Christmas (sort of) and some other random pictures from this past week! I'll post them soon!!

Hmmm...I am not one to read into things BUT....I am wondering about that first pic of all the kids in your previous post....seems like it is off balance....there is a space...and I wonder if that was intentional or not....Just saying... :)
