This year has gone by so quickly! I just want to take a minute to remember all the good things that happened in 2010:
My cousin, Amy, came to stay with us for 3 short months (Jan - Mar) to help out during the end of my pregnancy and then after Ryan was born
Ryan came screaming into the world on March 8th (and hasn't stopped since)!
My mom was able to be here for Ryan's birth
I turned 34 in March
Brandon's adoption was finalized in April!
We took our first road trip to Kentucky with both boys in May and they got to meet our awesome family at Patrick's family reunion
We celebrated Brandon's first gotcha day on July 10th
We took our first plane trip with both boys at the end of July to see my family in PA
Both boys saw the ocean/spent time on the beach in August in Ocean City, NJ
Brandon turned 2 in August
Patrick turned 32 in October
Brandon took 2nd place in his age division at our town's Halloween costume contest
Patrick flew to Pensacola on Oct 31st and then he and my mother-in-love made the long 2-day drive back here
My MIL moved half-way across the country to be closer to us and her grandsons (ok I know it's mostly the grandson's)!
We had a great Thanksgiving with the Elliott family (and the Elliott family's aunt/sister's family)
We flew back to PA with both boys at the beginning of Dec and the boys and I were able to spend 2 weeks with my family! (unfortunately Patrick had to fly home after only 3 days due to a death in the church).
Had an awesome Christmas with my MIL and the boys
Just had a great dinner and fellowship time with our friends, Val and Jim and my MIL to celebrate the New Year!
Whew, that seems like a lot in one year, but it was great! I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us in 2011, maybe another little blessing...we'll see!
