a look back on 2010

It was hard picking just 3 pictures from each month to recap our year. Each year I take more and more pictures and I think my photography skills improve just a little more too. But, I picked and there they are. If you click on the collage, it should become bigger. *** So to recap 2010: Aislynn started off the year with her broken arm in a sling. She got her cast on and taken off in January. Kieran started crawling, I turned 28, Aislynn went to the dentist for the first time, and we said good bye to our sweet friends, the Boultons when they moved back to Utah. In February, we watched all of the ice skating winter Olympic events, K started pulling to a stand in his crib, A spent half the month sleeping in her tent instead of her bed at night, and we helped Grandma celebrate her birthday. March brought us beautiful spring weather. Aislynn really started reading good and she tried soccer, but decided she didn't like it. K started calling A "na na." I had my first layouts published in the March issue of Scrapbook Trends and we spent St. Patrick's Day in Seaside. We also took a weekend trip up to Guntersville to spend sometime helping Grandpa after his surgery. In April we enjoyed more warm weather and played in the fountains and backyard inflatable pool a lot. I did Ali Edwards' Week in the Life project for the first time. Shaun turned 32 and we celebrated Easter in the beginning of the month. We started going to the Farmer's Market in Seaside this month as well. Kieran turned 1 in May and we had a family celebration. Aislynn also danced in her first recital and did SO well! Our friends Becky and Riley came over and we spent some time at the beach. We actually started going to the beach a lot in May and Kieran loved it! We moved to our new house in June and spent a lot of time walking to the beach, Eastern Lake, and eating at the yummy restaurants in within walking distance to the new house. A took swimming classes and was pretty much swimming on her own shortly after. Shaun also kept up with the World Cup. Aislynn started tumbling classes. July 4th was spent with Grandma, James, and Aunt Brynne. Aislynn took a Broadway Babies camp at her dance studio. We finished reading Charlotte's Web, and then saw the play performed in Seaside. Kieran started walking this month and Shaun and I took a grown-ups only trip to New Orleans. Aislynn started school in August and was the super student of the week the 2nd week. I started a sewing class and we spent more time down at the beach. Shaun and I also did some acrylic paintings. In September, everyone of us got sick. First Aislynn, then me, then Shaun, then Kieran. Aislynn turned 5 and Kieran got his first haircut. Grandma came and brought Aislynn her birthday present, a new bike! In October, Grandpa brought his camper down and Aunt Brynne, Uncle Andrew, and Jessica came down and we spent sometime with them. I started baking my own bread and experimented baking a few other things as well. For Halloween, Kieran was Yoda and Aislynn was Princess Leia. In the beginning of November, we went to Tallahassee and met Becky and Riley at the fair. We went to Bainbridge to spend Thanksgiving with Mimi and Papa and went straight to Disney World from their house. December was spent filled with holiday crafts, foods, and activities. Aislynn got out of school in the middle of the month and we had lots of family over for Christmas. This month flew by and here we are about to greet another year. Seriously can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us... Happy New Year!!!!
