2011 Review

I'm sure I sound like a broken record by stating this year just flew by and I can't believe it is almost over...but really, these years have got to slow down sometime, right?  Probably not!

This year was such an amazing one filled with changes and adjustments.  During the winter months we were still adjusting to having a newborn and in April we switched daycares.  It was a tough decision but in the end, we are so glad we did it.  Libby became 100% potty trained and adjusted very quickly to her new room.  She even started to read/write after only a few weeks there.  TJ was the laid back kinda kiddo we had hoped he would be and adjusted quickly also.  Because the daycare was so closeby home with only a 5-7 min commute, I got to start working from home.  That has made such a huge impact on our lives because now I can be more available.  I also celebrated my 9th year at AT&T in June.  I think we are all surprised by that one. =)

Libby continues to become a little girl with each passing day.  She has really taken to ballet and loves to draw and make up songs.  Some of her favorite things to do is watch movies and do arts and crafts.  Don't think she's a girlie girl though...she still loves to go outside and hunt for bugs...but she has to be in a tutu doing it.

TJ is just growing like a weed and went from starting to crawl in late September to walking in mid November to running in early December.  He is still pretty laid back except when he doesn't get when he wants and then can we say temper!!  I can't wait to see how he changes over the next year.  Luckily, he is still a momma's boy so I get to love on him a lot.

Jim is still burning the candle at both ends, running ragged after the kiddos and doing as much freelance writing as he can while looking for a more "offline" job. All those years of working on the internet seem to have finally gotten to him!

Here is to another year ending and another one beginning!  Happy 2012 from the Skis!!

Jingle Bell Ball

Thursday night, Libby's daycare/school put on their Christmas Program called the Jingle Bell Ball.  Libby not only sang with her class but also did her first ballet performance.  I won't lie - I cried a little.  It was absolutely adorable!! 12.15.11 Goddard Jingle Bell (82) 12.15.11 Goddard Jingle Bell (69) 12.15.11 Goddard Jingle Bell (60) 12.15.11 Goddard Jingle Bell (58)
