So here it is, December 25. I did no Christmas letter, no Christmas cards, no family photo, I didn't even put gift tags on Andrew's gifts this year.
It has been an insanely busy few months for us. When school started up for the kids in August, our lives exploded and we were travelling at warp speed.
So, to sum up our year, here is a quick, down and dirty Christmas newsletter.
February ... Josh had a birthday. Yay! Andrew got his learner's permit.
March ... Kids had spring break. Yay!
April ... Easter weekend and learning of a new addition to the family. That was NOT an elaborate April Fool's joke.
May ... Audrey's first birthday. Super Yay!
June ... Kymi graduated 8th grade and turned 14.
July ... Andrew turned 16. We spent independence day in Tucson with my family.
August ... Kids went back to school. Kymi started marching bad (and thus lost her free time).
September ... Josh went to a musician's seminar weekend and learned lots.
October ... Kymi's marching band season in full swing. Her school competed with a field show for the first time in 10 years and did quite well.
November ... I started my new venture of selling cloth diapers through diaperparties.com. Started maternity leave on Thanksgiving day. Andrew got his driver's license.
December 3 ... Our newest addition, Annie Noelle, joined our family. Josh's mom stayed with us for a week to help with the transition. Kymi had a few band concerts.
And that brings us to today.
Happy New Year.
