2009: A year in review, in pictures!

In 2009,

We turned 1 years old...



We really experienced a car wash...



We cried getting our haircut...



We were totally cool with getting our haircut...



And we ate a lot of this:



We enjoyed the beach at Atlantis in Bahamas...





And we took naps under the palm trees.



We tried to take a picture where we were all smiling at the same time...



We rode our bike around the block...



We ate Cheetos off the ground...



... and popcorn, too...



We ate Nutella from the jar...



...and enjoyed a Brownie Fudge Cheesecake a la mode from the Cheesecake Factory on my 33rd birthday!



We had fun on a few airplane rides...



...and wished my best friends lived here still...



We had a dream come true...



And we turned 4 years old.



We went to nursery school a few times, until we decided it wasn't time yet!



We enjoyed the great outdoors...



...and did some sight-seeing...





We had crepes for breakfast...



Went to the sugar bush...



Swam a lot...



And played some golf.



We learned to share...



We enjoyed lollipops with friends...



We ate a lot of cake...



And we found out my little sister is pregnant!



We finally sat still long enough to read a book.



We spent a lot of time with my amazing parents and grandparents...





We were all smiles, all the time...



And we shoveled lots of snow!



We helped paint the walls...



And we were the cutest sheep EVER in our first Christmas Celebration at school!



We had fun and hung out with good friends.




And the number one most amazing event of 2009? (Drumroll, please!) Starting kindergarten - and loving it!



We've come a long way, baby...

Hope you all had a fabulous, healthy, and happy 2009. I wish you all the very best for 2010!

Adorable!

I was thinking of doing a year in review of pictures (since I so rarely post pictures). This was motivating...but my lazy/overwhelmed tendencies are very strong...
