Happy New Years!

What a year it has been! It has had its great moments and not great moments, very happy times and some very sad times... In the end the best part of the year has been watching Emma grow and become a toddler from a baby and knowing that she will soon be a big sister in the new year!

Here is a review of our year in pictures (those that know me know that I love to take pictures and I have only a several thousand pictures from the year so this was a hard task !!!)....

This was Last New Years Eve! Where have our Babies gone????

This year for New Years!
Looko how my baby girl has grown!!!

What is this for Daddy????

I know there is something out there??? She NEVER did crawl out!

An attempt to get a picture of Emma and Kate at Kate's 1st birthday party!

1st Beach trip! Emma and I went to Marco Island Florida to see Mema and Papa! The weather was not as nice as I would have liked but it was great being able to get back down there! I just Love it there!

This year at my parents we got to meet a very sweet little girl. Her name is Ava and her mommy and I were roomates in college.

Emma's 1st surprise party! We went home for a night and My sister and the kids gave Emma a Surprise birthday party to cheer us up!

Alex found the way to her heart.... Give her your cell phone!

Although this year brought MANY happy times it also brought some very sad times! Emma's Pap-pap passed away very unexpectedly. She may not have her own memories of him but she will feel as though she knows him through the stories she hears and the memories that her daddy has of her amazing Pap-pap!

Excited about a birthday present from my coworkers at CCES

Tried to get a cute Easter picture.... The grass was dead and driving her nuts and the sun was bright and hurting her eyes... oh well:)

Skaneateles, NY

Christmas Time!

New Years Eve was a bit different this year.... Usually we have a party and last year we were suppose to do the party from 4-8ish because we all had kids and then they could get to bed at a decent time. We had to cancel last minute last year because Emma was sick. This year are in our new home in Syracuse. I thought about doing an early New Years party but my entertaining days are over for a few months! So instead The Goode's came down and we had steaks and played the wii and kids were in bed at a decent time and moms and dads are not far behind:)


I hope you all had a wonderful NYE and have a wonderful New year! We are looking forward to this coming year and the changes that will be happening in our family in 28 days! We are hoping for a year of health and happiness for all our family and friends!
