2011 (part 1)

  I can hardly believe a new year is right around the corner. Crazy isn't it!?
2011 was a good year for us - lots of fun, memorable things to look back on.
Here are some of my favorites, month by month!
I like seeing how my pictures improved too... thanks to my fellow bloggers for that!
You guys rock at teaching me how to be a better photographer!

JANUARY

Silly girls playing in the snow.... we got hit with a lot of snow last year. We have yet to see any so far!


My pretty neighbors red bar in the snow... loved this picture.


Playing Play-Doh with my girls. Gosh, this was really a year ago???

On January 21, 2011  - I announced my BEST FRIEND was getting married.
Well, let me just announce now... my BEST FRIEND is pregnant!!
So, so happy for her! I can't wait to spoil her little one like she does mine. ♥

FEBRUARY

Another favorite picture. Went on a much needed walk with hubby in early February for some fresh air.


I wonder how many candy conversation hearts we will get this year... ♥

I read & finished an excellent book last February -  I highly recommend Delirium by Lauren Oliver.
I still recommend it, wonderful book! If you want more reviews & recommendations on books, please check out my friend Gingers Blog - GREADS! She is the queen of books!
