In 2010.....

We had a long year. It was amazing in some parts and gut-wrenchingly hard at others. I'm proud to say that I survived this year without a mental breakdown!  I'm ringing in the new year with my son and husband. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Here's to an amazing(deployment free) 2011!

Here is our yearly recap:

  • I celebrated my birthday alone again due to an underway. But the hubs more than made up for it!
  • Landon turned 5!

  • Underways got back in full swing before deployment.
  • Many family activities before deployment. (picnics, drive-in movies, circus and a fair!)
  • Family pictures that would have to get me through deployment.
  • Deployment started.
  • Landon lost his first tooth!
  • On my anniversary I found my dream picnic basket at an antique store here in New England!
  • My sister-in-law came to visit us for a few weeks!
  • Went home to Washington
  • Took Landon to the sprint car races
  • My nice Peyton was born!
  • Took Landon for the first time to the campground I'd been going to every year in WA since I was born.

  • Girls trip to Forks, Wa & LaPush(met the cast of the Hillywood show)
  • Got the last 3 on my Quad list (Washington is the only state that has all 4. Ocean, Desert, Rainforest and Mountains(Volcanoes))
  • Landon learned how to fish with his Papa
  • Landon started Kindergarten!
  • And started Soccer! He also got his first belt in Karate(I have pictures but I can't find them at the moment)
