Since everyone seems to be doing these end of the year round up lists, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and get going with mine. Much easier said than done because I still don't have my computer back.
But I press on....
Here are our top 10 Experiences for 2011:
10) Our 1st Wedding Anniversary
Our wedding was the big news in 2010, but this year we celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary - and that's cool as well.
9) Life Postponed:
I developed a killer cough right before we were supposed to go to Edmonton for my heart surgery. I had to call and postpone the entire thing for a month. Brutal. I hate waiting. But it all worked out.
8) Lane Gets a Big Girl Bed:
Our little girl did her share of growing this year. She's no longer a baby and needed to move up to a big girl bed from her baby crib.
7) Family Vacay:
We packed the kids in the car and spent a few days up in Thompson this past summer.
Thing One and Thing Two were released upon our little neighbourhood and allowed to run amok collecting candy wherever they went!
5) Our Little Girl turns 2:
We had an outdoor BBQ party for Lane and she was the bell of the ball all evening.
4) Our Little Boy turns 5:
Our little man is 5 and he had his very first birthday bowling party with all this little friends. Chaos reigned.
3) Logan goes to Kindergarten:
What? Our boy is old enough to go to real school? How did that happen?
2) A goodly amount of weight loss:
This year Terry and I really decided that we would work at shedding a few pounds. Terry has lost 20 lbs so far and I've lost 15!
And the number one most life changing experience this year was...
Like you couldn't guess?
1) Tawny gets a new heart valve:
We moved our lives to Edmonton for a week and came back a very changed family. For the better! I'm healthier, stronger and more able to be the good mommy and wife that my family needs.
