Year in Review

It's been a year since I posted. So much has happened. I will give a quick review.

October 2010  I went to Kansas to visit Evan and Jenni. A highlight was going to school with Evan and watching him teach math. Teaching 6th graders in the hood is not easy.

November 2010 Spent Thanksgiving in Utah with our college kids. Froze my b00ty.

December 2010 We had all of our kids home for Christmas for the first time in far too long.

January 2011 Mourned my kids going back to Kansas and college.

February 2011 Called Jenni for frequent pregnancy updates. Awaited the birth of our first grandchild.

March 2011 Count down to grand baby.

April 2011 Trip to Puerto Rico. Followed by flood which required moving to a hotel for 2 months. Remodel which got me many upgrades.

May 2011 Baby boy is born! Loving my new status as Grandma. Trip to Kansas to hug on baby.

June 2011 Grand baby (and his parents) move back to Grandmaland. Loved the 10 pm - 2 am shift bonding with sweet baby boy.

 July 2011 Baby blessing, funeral and wedding plans. My brother-in-law unexpectedly passed away. Joy and sadness and more joy as we made plans for Jordan's wedding.

August 2011 Trip to Denver.  Jordan and Maddie are married! Two down, one to go.

September 2011 Trip to Utah. I turned the big 5 Oh! Spent time in a spa fog trying to absorb the enormity of it all.

So there we have it. Our family has grown. I am a 50 year old grandma and life is grand.

It really has been quite the year! I love that picture of you and your scrumptious grand boy!

I love the new header. I love the colors of the wedding. Everyone looks so fantastic.

I'm very sorry about your brother in law passing away.

Yay for the remodel and upgrades...way to look at the positive part of having your house flood.
