One Year Ago . . .

Peter was 3 years old - a few months shy of 4 - loving his CARS characters and movie more than anything else in this world!  He just started enjoying to draw  . . . he used to just be in tears because his circles weren't 'round enough' or perfect enough.  It was a silly, yet frustrating thing for both of us to go through - but we both survived it, and he is amazing at art work (and most importantly, ENJOYS it!!!)

Mr. James - a little over one.  Walking, talking, trying to play with everything that big brother played with.  This was our second year dealing with his massive droolege. . and he hasn't stopped since.  He sure loves his Mommy and Daddy and Big Brother and gives big (juicy) kisses.  This was his 'perfect size'  - not too big to carry, but not to small to have to worry about taking his places.

Tim and I were almost into our 7th year of marriage.  Six years, two kids, one dog and a home was surely a lot to take care of - but totally worth every single second of it!!!  

The 'BIG' thing from this year - was my dad's deployment.  5 months - missing his birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas - his 31st Wedding Anniversary, and New's Years.  Once he was home and safe and sound - we had a big party for him, with all of his Christmas/Birthday gifts and a bunch of his favorite treats!  It was hard with him being gone for so long, and missing out on so many special moments, but amazing to have him back home!

One dog? Did I miss something?
