A Year in Review: 2007 Edition

January: This was not a very exciting month. Lani popped her first tooth and we spent a day at the park in 70 degree weather. Very unusual in New Hampshire.

February: The month of living at the repair shop. Our car lived there for most of February and was a major pain in the a**!! Wesley earned his orange belt and earned third place in his first spelling bee.

March: I joined Weig.ht Wat.chers this month and as is my pattern I lost a lot of weight and gained it right back. Maybe this year will be different? I doubt it!! The weather started to warm up so we began to venture outside again. We also celebrated Grampy's birthday at the end of the month.

April: Wesley turned "7" and we celebrated at the local bowling alley with family and friends. As is typical in New England we spent many days at the park in sweatshirts while a few days later we were snowed and iced in with floods and power loss. But, it was so nice to be back outside in the warm sunshine once everything dried up.

May: Wesley and Michael took part in their first karate tournament together. We took our annual trip to Odio.rne State Park on Memorial Day

June: I celebrated many things this month. The first anniversary of this blog, my baby Lani's FIRST birthday and my 8th wedding anniversary. Lani also started walking this month.

July: We took a vacation to Burlington, Vt and I met my sister Ashleigh for the first time in 15 years. We spent over a week together and ended our time by getting a daisy tattoo. Wesley took part in swim lessons and became my little fish.

August: I met Lisa, my very good blogger friend. Although I don't like to call her that anymore:) I also went to my SIL's wedding shower and saw my mom for the first time in 6 years. We found out that Lani has severe allergies to beef, dairy, and eggs. Wesley started 2nd grade and my summer vacation ended. Oh, and Michael had the big "V" operation.

September: My little brother Jon married Jillian and Ashleigh flew in from Kansas for the big occasion. Michael and my niece Leah celebrated their birthdays.

October: Michael went to his first Pat.riots game. Lani is no longer nursing. She weaned herself one random night and never came back:( We ventured in to the mountains to enjoy the beautiful, yet unpredictable New Hampshire weather. Wesley earned his blue belt in karate. This was also a sad month when we got the news that Michael's grandmother had passed away.

November: I turned the big 3-0 and we celebrated quietly as a family. I did a lot of scrapbooking and didn't even make a dent in the pile of photos that I have:) Michael's band played their first live show.

December: We got a lot of snow this month and spent a lot of time reconnecting with some old friends. Our Christmas was fabulous and I loved including Lani in all of our traditions. She turned 18 months on Christmas Eve and seems like such a "big girl" to me. Wesley had a solo in his "winter concert" and was awesome:P

So many wonderful things happened to our family this year. Being able to have my sister back in my life was certainly a highlight. We celebrated many new lives, birthday's and anniversaries. We also said some sad goodbyes to our loved ones.

That reads like one accomplished year! You all hit quite a few milestones and it looks like you had a great time.

It is always wonderful to reconnect with people and to make new friends. You are blessed to have done both.

Thanks so much for participating in our Flaunt It Fridays Challenge

You had a busy year! It was fun reading your FIF. Lots of great milestones and celebrations. Sorry for your family loss.

Chas December 29, 2007 10:04 PM  

That's neat! I don't know if I could do that on my blog...so many private things happened this year, but I'd like to..very good idea.

I must admit something...sometimes I scan when I read blogs...I guess it's a habit. So, when I was reading this and I read "I met Lisa, my very good blogger friend. Although I don't like to call her that anymore:)"....at first glance I thought it said "I met Lisa, my very good blogger friend. Although I don't like her anymore" LOL!
