last post of the year.


as moses and i were pondering a little more about 2011. (don't worry he was really ecstatic while pondering) i realized there was a lot i didn't say in my last post. a lot that happened that i didn't get pictures of. for some reason i don't have very many pictures with my family and that makes me sad. i am so close with my family and love my family so much so i hope the lack of pictures with them don't make it seem otherwise! my goal for next year is to be better at that taking pictures with them. anyway, in no random order here are some of the other things that happened in 2011.

sean had a liver biopsy. things came back showing he had "fatty liver". could be serious someday but not for now. we finished our patio. we got 2 trees for our yard. i went to the gym several days in a row! sean got the best grade in the class in the hardest one he has ever taken. sean went to california with my family. i stayed home and worked and hung out with moses. we watched lots of movies. we went camping with moses and got stuck in a rainstorm on the way home with windshield wipers that broke. we went up to sundance with my family. it was beautiful. 4 of my cousin's had babies this year. 2 more already on the way for next year so far! i had four cousins and one brother in law get married this year. all with in three months. it was crazy. i don't think i've ever been to more bridal showers and baby showers in such a short amount of time. we took moses up into the mountain several times to run around. he loved it. we bought a rice cooker. sean played lots of old school nintendo on the wii. we went to torrey to visit my grandparents with some friends and sam and sarah. we made the coolest trays in the world. my grandparents are awesome. we also ate lots of ramen noodles and toast and hardly spent any money when we really buckled down so we could reach our savings goal. we did it. it was worth it. we won our co-ed softball championship. we got lots of mosquito bites. we planted our first garden.

we did lots of things this year that we had never done before. nothing major happened this year if you compare it to our first and second year together but i honestly think it was all the little things that made it an awesome year. i probably cried more this year than any other, but i definitely laughed and smiled even more than that. moses and sean really are my best buddies. i really am the luckiest girl in the world.

p.s. one of my favorite moments was actually last night. when sean and i actually spent ten minutes trying to decide what tv show to leave on for moses while we left for the evening. i don't think i have ever laughed harder when we were debating certain tv shows. you definitely had to be there. i felt that it was important that we leave something on tv that moses will actually like. that would actually interest him. i thought animal planet. sean thought national geographic. we settled on a show called "the whale that exploded". moses seems a little traumatized today though now that i think about it..

I had a really great moment that simply involved a tickle fight. It's the little things, right?

Happy 2012 Chloe!

It sounds like you had quite the eventful year. I know exactly what you mean about the little things. It's amazing how those little things are the ones that mean the most. Best wishes for a lovely 2012!
