Monday, January 3

so, when i said tomorrow . . .

i meant, in a few days.
next year, even. 

it's next year now!
i can't believe it's 2011 already. 

2010 was a big, big year. huge, really. 

here's a little blurbie recap 
(if you can remember blurbies then you have definitely been reading my blog forever).

 we waited around for a baby! 
and i got really gigantic. 

the baby came! 
and we've been loving her and losing sleep ever since.

eleanor made the rounds! 
she got to know all her people and went out on the town. 
we got ready for spring! 
and dressed ellie up for a zillion photoshoots. 

we partied hardy!
thus began the wedding season and all sorts of other fun. 

we had fun in the sun!
more parties, more dressing up, more sunglasses. 

daddy got a new schedule!
and we got to see him more often for naps. 

we crossed the country! 
we spent time in utah with the family - generations and generations of them.

ellie grew up! 
she started eating food and crawling well and sitting up in the cart.

we loved fall!
we dressed up our ellie, ate candy and enjoyed the wonderful southern weather. 

we ate (and ate and ate)!
we got our pilgrim and indian on with some sweet 'tatoes and turkey burgers. 
oh, and ellie decided walking was a cool idea. 

we loved the holiday season! 
ellie had a really great christmas and so did everyone else, mostly because we have her.

we can't wait to see what 2011 brings.
big things are in the works already (no, not a baby).

p.s. - happy birthday, mom/grammie! can't wait to see you on thursday!
