When the Girl has a day off of school...we hit the lanes.
The Boy did great, the Girl did even better.
All I can say is I am thankful for bumpers...gutter balls would have been a disaster.

Old and New

Yes, I realize Christmas was a month ago (so, hey! Only 11 more months 'til next Christmas! Get your shopping on!).

Here's a little visual recap (just 'cause).

Someone really likes Angry Birds...note to stock in whoever makes that game...

This one was all about the dolphins.

We spent time with Nonna and Papa...and were really missing my Sister and Brother in law. Stupid airline prices.

Of course we hit the annual Christmas Day Cousin Extravaganza...

Then I did something crazy. I decided to do a 5K. I wanted to kick off 2012 with a purpose. I need to get serious about my life and quit acting like I am waiting for the grown-ups to show up and take care of everything. It's kind of sobering to realize I AM the grown-up.

I wasn't last place...but I will take my finish as a motivation to keep going and getting better.

Of course, the only one who stayed up the whole night was the girl. She had to wake me up so we could watch the ball drop.

So that's about it. January has been pretty quiet here.

I need to get back to blogging, there are things I do not want to forget. This year will be a lot of big changes...The girl will hit double digits, Dr. Dad may or may not be entering a new decade (no party, I got it dear) and we WILL get that little boy potty trained because Mama needs him to go to preschool.

It was a great year, and I am hoping for 2012 to be even better.
