As we end 2011 it is time to take a moment to reflect on
the year that was!
The year started out for me on such a positive note! My first Grandchild was due in April and there was so much to do to get ready. I was so happy to help my Daughter and SIL get the nursery ready
The couple's baby shower was so much fun
We were ready for Tiger to arrive!
And arrive he did on April 7th
Changing our world forever!
June found us at YMCA summer camp where Blake was Aquatic & Music Director
I spent about 10 days helping them to get settled and enjoying my birthday with Sara, Blake & Tiger
The happy family just days before this
Blake had a serious ankle break that required surgery. They came home from camp and I went over to be with Blake at the hospital and then home to help them for a few days.
It was a long summer but they were able to work several weeks of camp before Sara had to return to school. Daddy daycare started and went really well! So proud of Blake, a wonderful Dad even on crutches.
My older daughter Ashleigh moved across the country from me to Cali. I miss her a lot but
I got to visit her for two weeks and had a wonderful time in Sunny California!
After returning home I got word that my brother was not doing so well and I flew to Texas
I spent a month there with my Mom and visiting my brother....it was extremely hard to see him so ill. He is at peace with it all. Since leaving he has been given longer to live then at first expected so I will be returning to visit him in February
During this time my blogging family has been a wonderful support and the prayers have been such a blessing to me and my family. I can't thank each of you enough!
I made it home for Thanksgiving and was able to spend some time taking care of Tiger. I love this child so much and he makes everything better
We had a fun photo shoot in the park for their Christmas card and I had a blast taking pictures of my favorite little guy
This describes my Christmas with more to come
I will be spending New Year's Weekend with Sara, Blake and Tiger and we will have our Christmas then also!
Tiger is for sure my best gift this year!
As the year ends and 2012 approaches, I am wishing for more JOY with my family and wishing my brother some time to be with his wife, children and grandchildren. I feel hopeful that 2012 will continue to be a blessing.
