This weekend was my 5th blogiversary! Yay!! Here are my past blogiversary posts:
Here's what happened this year of blogging our adventures:
School started in August and Miss Kennedy (Still wanting to be called Georgie) finally had her first homework! I found a farmer's market where people loved my headbands.
September had Kennedy deciding that a new look was in her future...and we were all so happy that Kolby chose to get baptized. Kennedy also lost her first tooth, which just opened the flood gates for another lost tooth, and then teeth falling out all over the place.
In October we ventured down to New Mexico to join cousins at the balloon festival (in which I got the recipe for these amazing pumpkin pancakes, which I can not stop making) and we all enjoyed the first snowfall of the year. Continuing on with our halloween tradition, we had another spooky feast!
In November, Just after his 2nd Birthday, and after I reminisced about what an amazing 2 years it has been, Mr. Kimble got his first big boy haircut! We also had Year 2 of the Blanket Drive!!
The month of December was a busy one for us, because we did our daily deeds of service to bring Christ back into Christmas. I also posted my favorite meatball recipe ever. Christmas Eve Picture, to add to our yearly picture tradition.
I began a series of posts that were full of Kimble-related happenings. Here is what he was up to in January, then in February, March, and May, when he turned 2.5!
I made public my goals for 2012.
In February, Kimble had some episodes of blue lips that were happening more frequent. We had one of his cardiac appointments explain why, and also give us a preview of his next expected surgery. Then, we had our final appointment, in June, before we begin our pre-op appointments in the fall.
I donated blood in honor of Mr. Kimble.
In March I had a lovely weekend visiting my family!
Kamy turrned 12 and became a young lady. Kennedy simply begged me to get her hair cut short!
Spring Break is sponsored by the best picture ever, of Kimble getting caught with flour.
Keaton loves to write us little notes and letters, and it began with his note of being the worst kid ever. Then, he decided to live in a tree.
With all my worrying about Kimble, sometimes I forget that he is the love of other people as well.
In April we built planter boxes, planted seeds, started the garden, and watched it grow! Plus, we built two gates.
Kimble had some owies to show for his growing exuberance.
We all had fun at Easter hunting eggs.
I started compliling my facebook statuses into monthly accounts. January, February, March, April, May, June, and July.
May brought us beautiful weather, so Kennedy learned how to ride her bike without training wheels and graduates from Kindergarten.
Here's a glimpse at the Italian Digression.
I hate that I was so grumpy on Mother's Day.
Last day of school for the year.
I got to see Wicked! and took The Husband with me. I also love this picture of us.
To kick start our summer, we hiked Cheyenne State Park, had Girls Camp, reminised about when I was 12 years old at Girls Camp, and sold wands.
We had another heart baby reunion, and this time we went camping!
The Waldo Canyon Fire threatened us all; We went swimming at Pirate's Cove,
We began a week-long adventure of miracles, with our Make A Wish Trip. Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.
School starts again and with that, Keaton begins his new career as Garbage Boy. Plus, we finally show our true colors, being raised as farm kids, and add some hens to our family!
To thank you for sticking around, and reading my blog (even though the comment sections are pretty sparse, I know people still read!), I have a lovely headband to give away. Simply leave a comment. Say something nice. I'll randomly pick a winner in a few days. Toodles.
(a rolled flower headband, made with lace and satin, in black and gray)
(If you don't win the giveaway, and still want a headband, I will make you a custom order, through Krinkle Kut. This headband would normally sell for 12 dollars.)
