2009...A Year in Review...

Some fun pics from the year I didn't blog...

Sledding parties...yes, this is the hood of a car being pulled by a snowmobile...that's how we roll!
What? I don't look badass? Even with the carseats behind me?!
The Twinkeys began outgrowing their highchairs...
And lost them this day, after I left them in their own highchairs to blowdry my hair...and returned to them in the same one:
We learned some great new habits...
And a few not-so-good ones:
Boy + mud = happy boy.
We participated in a local Empty Bowls Dinner, creating the bowls to be purchased for donations to the local food pantry.
A totally talented, wonderfully artistic, and did I mention modest person created this flower!
Some of us watched parades, as others marched or rode in them.


We had lots of pool fun!

These teeny little Twinkeys...
...turned into these Terrific 2 year olds!!
Popsicles and playdates were fun.
And I finally got a pic with MonkeyButt...NOT making a funny face!
We met our brand new baby cousin C. I imagine his thought bubble to say, "Wait. How many of you are there?!"
CuriousGeorge & MonkeyButt started at their brand new school...
...and then there were 3...
Until SpiderMonkey joined a 3yr old program :) Which he absolutely loves!
We tried a new park near the ocean...thank goodness for helpful big brothers, and paperbags for Mom to hyperventilate into.
The cast of Farmville joined us for Halloween...
as did Kate Gosselin.
We survived the first snow of the year...barely.
Does this boy not look like a garden gnome?!
We took a lesson from Mommy and snapped pics of ourselves...
I'll need to let him know to tidy up the background next time :)
And of course, a group pic at Christmas.
We're looking forward to a sharing a new year!...once I get a new camera cuz the other one is currently held together with apple juice :)

Wow, that was a fun way to look back at the last year!!

The cross-eyed picture made me laugh! My daughter does that all the time and I keep telling her that her eyes are gonna freeze like that someday if she keeps doing that.

You totally rocked the Kate Gosselin look!!!

Love the last picture at the end...what a happy bunch of kids!

I wish my daughter would use the potty.
