Happy New Year!

Wow! Another year come...and gone. Another year of wonderful memories made. Sure, there were lots of trying times in 2010, but overall, it was a pretty good year. It's amazing to look at photos of the last year and see how much our girls have grown! Each year keeps getting better and better with them.

Look at how much our sweet angels have changed in a year!
Now...they're BIG!

2010 was filled with some difficult times - the hardest being Kevin's deployment down to the Gulf of Mexico to work with the oil the time, it was the worst thing that could happen to us, and I probably didn't handle it as well as I should have, but, live and learn, right?

Once Kevin returned, we learned we would be expecting a beautiful baby....boy. What a big surprise! We can only wonder what 2011 will bring to our family. It will sure be a big year as we will welcome our little prince to our house full of princesses and we are scheduled to transfer from Maine to......well, we don't know. We pray Boston, but the chances are most likely back to Washington, DC. Just with those two things alone, it will surely be crazy around here!

I'd have to say that ringing in 2011 with our girls was a blast this year! This was the first year we have really included our kids. LL Bean had an amazing family first night - so we met up with some friends and headed up to Freeport for some fun, and to ring in the New Year at.........6pm! They had a hat making station, and then had a band with children's music, free hot chocolate, cookies and loads of fireworks! The kids thought it was just the best, and to be honest, so did we! Not only was it an awesome night, it was also warm outside, so it made it even better! Once the festivities were over there, our friends and us headed back to our house, ordered pizza, stuffed our faces with ice cream and just hung out. The kids had a blast and were up until close to 11pm, even Clara! I'd have to say it was one of the best New Years ever, even though, there was no swanky party for me and Kevin, or a party filled with lots of was a party for everyone, and just watching the looks on our kids faces was just priceless.

I hope 2011 is filled with good health, love and laughter. I don't do resolutions, so I won't even go there, but I hope everyone has a happy and healthy New Year!
