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!
