Happy 2011!

We rang in the new year in Texas this year!  We drove straight through to Texas on Wednesday/Thursday.  With pit stops, it took us a total of 24 hours, 45 minutes.  Jarrod and I made it through the trip without needing to stop at an insane asylum, so I guess the drive wasn't too bad.

We started off New Year's Eve by celebrating Christmas with my family.  Before a yummy Christmas meal that my mom made, we opened gifts.  Trenton wasn't interested in opening any gifts once he opened his tractor from Uncle Bradley and Auntie Courtney.


Friday evening after mass, we celebrated New Year's Eve early with the kids by popping fire crackers.  Trenton LOVED them!  I was sure that the black cats would scare both kids, but Charlotte didn't seem to mind, and Trenton asked for more!  I think that boys must have some sort of "fire bug" gene, and Trenton's seems to have made its debut on New Year's Eve.  He wanted to help with everything. 




 

So, do I have any resolutions for 2011?  Does not having a baby this year count???  ;)  Seriously though, I'd like to start keeping better track of all of the funny things that the kids do so that I can remember everything in the years to come.  I am going to start a weekly column on the blog called Friday Funnies.  Stay tuned for the first edition on the 7th!
