2010 in Review

2010 went so amazingly fast, I didn't know that was possible!  Here are some highlights from 2010:

Rang in 2010 huge as can be and anxiously awaiting Wyndham's late arrival with some fellow pregger friends. Man I was HUGE as a HOUSE!

Wyndham Lee's big deput into our world on Jan 11th, 2010.  Clearly the HIGHLIGHT of our YEAR!!

Wyndham and Mommy go to Florida for her first beach experience:

My BFF Jodi moved HERE!! {ultimately making her my real life model for all sewing projects}

Family Trip to New Jersey.

Ran my first 1/2 marathon and complete in 2 hrs and 45 min (beating my goal by 15 minutes).

Romantic weekend at Fall Creek Falls just me and the hubs to celebrate our 3 yr anniversary :)

Spiritual Growth through fellowship in my Girls Small Group that I LOVE and so desperately need and through serving in a prison ministry that has really gotten me out of my comfort zone on many occasions and is continueing to help me learn and grow and serve.
Walked for a Cause in the 2010 American Heart Walk.

Made my female friends bake pies while the men judged and rocked some amazing staches at the 2010 Pie Bake Off.

Cooked my 1st Thanksgiving Dinner Successfully (meaning I didn't burn the house down)
Found out we were expecting again! Double Trouble!
Spent Christmas in Florida with my family, it was AMAZING and not nearly long enough.  Saw good friends and spent lots of time with family.  While there announced that Wyndham would be a big sister come July!

Experienced a million of Wyndham's firsts in 2010, including, first smile, first tooth, first crawl, first word (baba, dada, followed my mama-- I see where I am on the list on priorities, at least I made it in the top 3!!)

For 2011 I'm looking forward to so many things.  First thing on the list is Wyndham's 1st Birthday Party just around the corner.  I am oh so excited about her birthday and I am determined to not let her birthday ever blur into Christmas.  She will forever know how special she and her birth aret to Ryan and I.  Another thing to look forward to is finding out the sex of baby #2 and they baby's arrival come July.  As well as three other baby's joining my life, baby Mason due in Feb, a Monaghan cousin due right after our Monaghan baby is due and Baby Girl Bennett Rose due late April.  Also looking forward to lots of family visiting this summer, as does normally happen after you birth a child, one more perk of making a human being ; )  An exciting year ahead!  So much greatness!

I'm setting some goals for myself for 2011:
Be a better Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister and Friend.
Call people more and not just say that I need to-- it means the world to me when people think of me, or check in on me and don't just call because they need something.
Become a better at sewing/crafter.
Be healthier- exercise and eat healthy, loosing weight is obviously not an option right now ;)
Be more genuine.
Be nicer to strangers.
Work on taking my true friendships to a deeper level.
Work on my patience, or lack there of as Ryan would say.
Be thriftier.
Tell my husband how great he is more often and all the things he does right (b/c Lord knows I'm good at pointing out faults and he truly is my PERFECT match!!) I love him for who he is, not for who he is not.
Master the art of being a mother of two, and do it well!!
Love my children to the height, depth and width my sould can reach, teach them confidence, to love the Lord above all things and to love one another deeply.
Spend more time reading my Bible.
Have less fears and stress in 2011!

Oh my goodness that is a lot, but really I've got a lot of improving to do and really I want to be a better person and servant of our Great and Awesome Lord!
