2011 Recap

2011 was a crazy year.
We had another kid. 
And a really really cute one at that.
We moved.
And we had lots of fun in between. 

Here's a brief overview of the year. 

January 2011 

Aaron and I celebrated 6 years of marriage. 

And these little guys realized that having a sibling is cool and became inseperable. 

February 2011

Mackenzie was part of the new Jana Alayra DVD. 
You can tell she was pretty excited about that. 

We enjoyed living next door to our good friends in Corona Del Mar. 
And making lots of fires in our fire place. 

March 2011

Mackenzie and Wesley got bunk beds. 

And we enjoyed lots of Family Saturdays together.  

April 2011

Mackenzie started swim lessons and l.o.v.e.d. every second of them. 

We celebrated Jesus raising from the dead (Easter)!  

May 2011

We welcomed Madelyn Joy into the world. 

And became a family of 5!

June 2011

Aaron graduated from the Apprentice Acadomy at our church 

and my Dad turned 60!

July 2011

We took full advantage of the summer and spent lots of time at the beach, the pool and of course the fair. 

And our little man turned 2 years old!
How did that happen?

August 2011

Madelyn kept growing even though I tried my best to keep her little forever. 

And suprisingly enough these guys still remained best buddies.

September 2011

We went camping in Yosemite and drove up to Nevada to visit Aaron's grandparents.

And Mackenzie started preschool.

October 2011

The big kids dressed up as Pirate Jake and Pirate Izzy

and Madelyn was the cutest butterfly you ever did see for Halloween. 

November 2011

We went to Florida to spend Thanksgiving with Aaron's dad's side of the family
and took a few trips to Disney World. 

She kept growing and getting cuter and chunkier. 

December 2011

Mackenzie turned 4 and had a Rapunzel birthday party.

For Christmas this year we started a new tradition of having our families over to our place on Chritsmas morning. 
It was awesome being able to have (almost) all of our family together and not having to drive a million places to see everyone. 

Thanks 2011 for a great year! 
And thank you Jesus for teaching us more about yourself and for blessing us more than we could possibly imagine. 
You are so so good. 
We can't wait to see what 2012 has in store!
