2010: A Year In Review

I'm a bit behind schedule, as it is January 7th, 2011 and I haven't posted this blog yet. Things have been a bit crazy as of late, so here are some of the highlights....well, what I can remember anyways!

January 2010 - Spent NYE with a great friend and her family to ring in the New Year. My nephew Lil Georgie was born 1-19-10; he had a lot of health problems and was born addicted to Heroin, thanks to my fabulous sister. I went to Michigan the weekend after he was born to spend some time with him.

February - Madison turned 8. We had the girls' birthday parties; Gabbi did Science Central and Maddi did The Roller Dome. Steven and I celebrated our 12th Valentine's Day. 

March - This month we took the Littles shopping for Daddy-Daughter Dance Dresses (say that 5 times fast! LOL). We all had a great time choosing their dresses. The day of the dance, the girls and I had a Mommy-N-Me Morning, where we had an early lunch and went to Rudae's to have their hair and nails done. Steven and Pat had the two prettiest girls on their arms that night! 

April brought about a huge milestone in a girl's life: Cassi turned Sweet Sixteen! We had no idea what to do for her, so we rented her a Limo and let her and some friends ride around in it for a couple of hours. 

May showed up, blessing me with the end of my semester! I was pleased with my grades, yet ready for the summer break! It also brought with it some memories....It reminded me that I had graduated from high school 18 years ago! 

June 2010 was a very rough time. You can read more about that here, but I'm not going into it right now. It was also the month that my Papaw passed away....28 days after I graduated from high school.

July slid into view a lot quicker than I was ready for. With everything that had been going on with Cassi, I was  pretty down in the dumps. My wonderful friend Annie and her family decided to surprise me with a trip up here from Kentucky! Then came the Three Rivers Festival. Lots of time spent downtown, eating junk food and just hanging out.

August requires back-to-school shopping....and shop we did! Steve's parents decided to let the girls all pick out their own clothes this year. We spent a full day out at the mall and other stores, then had a nice dinner, and then headed home. Steve got an awesome surprise this month....a fabulous (if I do say so myself) birthday party. There were more than 50 people in our house and yard! 

September was a blur of time. Steve's dad had a double bypass....there were a ton of complications and we almost lost him a few times. 

October blew Halloween into the picture, along with Christopher's 17th birthday. 

November forced me to realize I'm heading towards the dreaded 4-0, as I turned 36. 

December came and went, with it's usual holiday flair. Gabbi turned 11. 

And that brings us back to the present. Here's looking toward a fabulous 2011!!
