A Look Back at 2010

As I looked back through my year of photos, I was thrilled with how much we did and saw! We made so many great memories in 2010 and like Scott just said..."there will be plenty of time to sleep when they're grown" :) I'm anxious to see what 2011 has in store for us...more trips, more sports, more kids (just kidding mom), definitely more pictures! Here's wishing everyone A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR...may 2011 be the best yet!

Looking More Like A Hockey Player (warning:gross pictures)

All day today Brady bugged Scott to go downstairs and play hockey with him (Scott built him a hockey arena complete with a locker room in our basement storage room). After a few hours of begging, Scott finally told him if he pulled his loose front tooth out he would go. So he did. And it bled. And bled. And he thought it was the coolest thing ever. He got to play hockey and he'll get a visit from the tooth fairy. This Brady has it all figured out. The only time he was quiet all day.

Murphy The Wonder Dog

This picture of Murphy cracks me up....he was racing the sled {and displaying his manhood for all the world to see ;) }

Christmas 2010

How can Christmas be over already? And how did I only take 10 pictures the entire weekend? Oh well, regardless it was another great holiday!
The only picture I captured of all four kids together. And isn't it a great one?!
It was a beautiful snowy Christmas Eve

Poor Cate had to shovel snow to earn her dinner

Leaving reindeer food in the front yard (at midnight!)

This has been one of Cate's favorite gifts...a scooter!

Bennett, Josh, and Scott's legs.... watching some football

While we slaved away in the kitchen, Fran, Reece, and Cate lounged in the tub

Cate's very favorite gifts...ballet shoes and Minnie Mouse luggage (Disney bound in 15 days!)

She practices her ballerina moves ALL of the time. I'm hoping to capture her entire routine on film's hilarious! Time to sign her up for a class :)

Last night, Carter had Logan, Alec, and Zack spend the night. They decided to play in the snow at 10:30. Cate decided she needed to be with them. This is a picture of Logan pulling Cate in her sled...she laid down flat and he ran around the back yard while she laughed uncontrollably. She loves "Wogan"!!!!!
