Family Pictures

While Michael was home, we took family pictures. It was a bit of a challenge getting everyone smiling and looking the right direction, but the pictures came out cute.

2011: Starting Over

My blogging skills left something to be desired in 2010, so it's time for a fresh start. To get everyone up to speed, I have decided to do a quick review of what happened in 2010. It seems that all the pictures are out of order, but that seems pretty normal for me. So here goes:

2010 was a crazy year. We moved from San Antonio to Maricopa, Arizona. We miss Texas but are enjoying our small town here. Mom chose to end her marriage and we are going it alone. We are looking forward to a challenging, but interesting 2011 full of fun surprises and new things. Stay tuned for the latest and greatest from us.
