2010 is over and done with. It went by so quickly. . . I honestly can't believe all that happened within the past 365 days. But, we get to start a new year with so many amazing things already planned for this new year, including a new baby in less than 2 months.
2010 was filled with lots of happiness, some sadness, frustrations, and craziness, but here are some of my favorite memories of the year:
:: January - hanging out with my niece and Ethan while my husband and dad fixed our fence.
:: February - hosting dinner for our Sunday School class Progressive Dinner
:: March - Celebrating Jon's 30th birthday by going to San Francisco and having a fun party for him
:: April - Daughtry and Lifehouse in concert . . . so much fun!
:: May - Spending a week at the beach. . . i just can't get enough of it!
:: June - Celebrating my 5th anniversary in San Francisco with my love (this trip including Wicked and dinner at the Tonga Room!).
:: July - Vacation Bible School - both serving and watching my 22 month old have the time of his life!
:: August - spending time with good friends in the pool!
:: September - Celebrating Ethan's 2nd birthday, welcoming my our new nephew into the world, and watching the hot air balloons at 7am!
