The Best of 2011 {A picture a month recap}


First, a quick Happy Birthday to my mom!  She has a ruptured disk in her back and has been in a lot of pain for weeks now.  It seems to slowly be getting better, but we are thinking of her.  Love you, mom!


January 2011

Brought the snow…and then the ice.  Ice that shut down our city for close to a week.


February 2011

The “birthday” of Mommy and Me Monday.  We celebrated with angel food cake.


March 2011

We had some silly monkeys jumping on the bed.  Thankfully, nobody fell and bumped their head.


April 2011

Nice weather in Atlanta brought swing and backyard weather.  We enjoyed it.


May 2011

It got even warmer.  We had our first trip to the pool.

June 2011

Recital!  She worked months on her tap and ballet routine.  She had so much confidence.


July 2011

Road trip.  We went to Houston for almost two weeks for my sister’s wedding.  We got to see both families and my extending family.  It was a great time.

I was 10 weeks pregnant and exhausted.

Our little girl!  Our first 3D/4D ultrasound.  Coolest way to see your baby, ever (besides their birth, of course).

Santa came…Santa came.  And, he brought tiaras and wands (and other fun things)!

  1. Oh I did this last year I think, I’ll have to do another one. If i can find enough pictures!

    1. I think last year, I did a last of 2010 and first of 2011…maybe I did that for the first?

      I organize my pictures by month, so it wasn’t too hard to find was hard to decide on just on and not ramble on and on about everything from that month.


    Totally, absolutely without a doubt FABULOUS!

    1. BTW, I still can’t access your blog. I can get to the main home page, but once I click to a post, I get this message “The server at is taking too long to respond.”

  3. I love the photos. Do I understand this right? Your girls have the same birthday? Wow! I need to take more pictures. I will probably get on it more after I have kids of my own.

    1. Thank you! Actually, they are one day apart. The oldest is 10/14 and the youngest is 10/13:) Yes, having kids definitely increases the amount of pictures you take.
