Christmas 2011

We had a great Christmas this year at my Mom and Brian’s. Last year Rowan was just a cozy little bundle in our arms, and this year he was all over the place. It was fun to watch him tear into the wrapping paper… of course that’s much more fun than the present itself, right?!

I apologize in advance for the major photo bomb. ;)

In awe of the Christmas tree. We didn’t even put ours up this year since there’s no way we could keep this little rascal out! (thought it looked cool in b&w)

Little Buddies!

Last weekend we went to a little birth class get together. It’s pretty hard to get 8 little babes and their parents together these days, so we only had 4 (and didn’t take any pics before Carter left, unfortunately!)

We tried to get one where all three kiddos were looking at the camera and smiling, but that didn’t really happen. We got some cute ones though.

Thanks Chrystie, for having us over!

My Best Friend’s Wedding!

Yep.. I’ve been dying to use that line ever since the movie came out.

Andrea is now Mrs.Perun!!! Crazy to think that we’ve been friends for 20 years and now she’s married. It was a really beautiful wedding down to every detail. It was my first time at Lord Hill Farms.. amazing location!

I didn’t get too many pictures mostly because I was busy running around doing my matron of honor duties, and then running around after Rowan during the reception. I’m looking forward to seeing what the photographer got but here’s a few:

Playing Cars

It’s crazy to think that Rowan is big enough to play anything yet, but he is a toddler now and busy as ever! He really loves this car ramp he got for his birthday. It makes fun noises and he likes to watch the cars race down the track.
