Anybody still out there? Or has everyone deleted me from their blogrolls? I wouldn't blame anyone who did, that's for sure.
So, um, yeah....it's been a while. But I'm going to try to do better. In fact, I think I'm going to try to emulate Andria and really try to post at least once a week this year. Now that we have a new computer (yay!), it should be easier. Well, maybe not easier, but at least a lot less frustrating.
I also thought I'd copy Andria and sum up our year in one post, especially since I didn't post anything for half of it. Oops.
January - Sydney recovered from her tonsillectomy and Ryan had his terrible seizure-induced car accident. I have no pictures of that; it's definitely not something I really want pictures of anyway.
February - We spent the month getting used to being a one driver household and began planning our backyard makeover. We also celebrated Go Texan Day (the start of the Big City Livestock Show & Rodeo - yeehaw!):
(Cutest cowboy ever.)
March - A visit to fondue restaurant to celebrate my birthday and Spring Break antics, including pillow sumo wrestling:
April - Easter, Sydney's choir concert and our yearly bluebonnet photos:
(Believe it or not, this is the best one of the 20 or so that I took of the three of them)
May - Sydney's 9th birthday, the end of school and Evan's 4th birthday (with a light saber cake, of course):
June - Vacation Bible School, our annual trip to San Antonio, a quick trip to Schlitterbahn:
July - Another church camp, a loyal viewing of the Summer Olympics and our family olympics with a dozen events and medal ceremonies:
(Sydney during the long jump event.)
August - We were all excited that Ryan was able to drive again and school started back up. Only I was excited about this, though.
(Liam's first day of Kindergarten.)
September - I agreed to become the Girl Scout Troop treasurer and the Children's Bell Choir Communication Coordinator (because I'm not busy enough already) and Liam started soccer:
October - A new computer, pumpkin patches and Halloween:
(This is Sydney as the Greek goddess Artemis. Evan went as Spiderman and Liam went as Darth Vader.)
November - Liam's 6th birthday and a trip to Tennessee for Thanksgiving:
December - Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. And a new dog named Max whose picture is still on my iPod. I'm sure there will be plenty more in the future if we can get poor Evan's allergies under control and if I don't kill him because of all the chewing on things he's not supposed to chew (Max, that is, not Evan)!
So, that's our 2012.
My hope for 2013? Contentment.
So far, we're off to a good start.
