2011 in reveiw

Over the past few years I've seen lots of bloggers do a previous year recap of some sort or another, and I've always thought I'd like to try it. So, here I am...

The biggest happy change for our family this year was the addition of another little girl. In June we welcomed Miss Faith Caroline to our ever growing family. She sits in my lap as I type, and what a bundle of giggles and squeals she is. 

Our annual spring church camp out at Turkey Run...

  Another monumental event this year was Hannah's first time skydiving.
Who is next, I wonder???

Our second trip to the bright and sunny Alabama to visit our Aunt and Uncle.

Riding horses at a real southern horse ranch...

in AL

Needless to say, we had a very enjoyable time. Then on the way home...

Betty and Denny took us to a indoor water park.
Isaiah, Mary, and Emily in the wave pool.
Thank you so much "Aunt" Betty!

Yet another first this oldest sister Kelsey purchased her first car.
A 2000 VW Bug, which we all love riding in! :)

Celebrating my Grandparents 50th anniversary this Summer.
Congratulations Bubba and Grammy!

Teaching CI with Kelsy this August at the ATI Indy conference. It was a great learning experience for both the teachers and children ;)

Kelsey, Emily, and I.
One change in 2011 was Emily's sudden growth spurt, leaving her less then an inch shorter then me. I now have a urge to get taller, and fast! :P

In 2011 I turned 17...

 and on my 17th birthday-I got my ears pierced.
It was suprisingly pain-free, and I am looking forward to taking out my "trainer" earrings  next week.

Emily through Isaiah played in Kelsey's Christmas recital in December. And out of the 50+ students playing, I think they did the best. But then I'm a little biased aren't I? :)

That about wraps up 2011 in pictures.
Well, most of 2011 anyway :).
Happy two thousand twelve everyone!
