Looking back at 2011!!

Each year I like to do a recap of our here! You can see ones for 2008, 2009, 2010 by clicking on the year!! :)


Met up with 3 of my favorite people for a wonderful start to the new year!!!!IMG_0161

Ava got a nice boo-boo on her nose!IMG_2058


Although we didn’t share for a couple more months, we found out I was pregnant on February 1!IMG_2204

After complaining for days about her nose hurting, we found these two rocks shoved up one of Ava’s nostrils. The end result was an ear and sinus infection.IMG_2316

We have been so incredibly blessed this year. There have been many ups and downs but throughout we have been reminded of how blessed we are. We’re looking forward to what 2012 has coming for us!!


  1. What a wonderful year it has been for your family Sarah! I will never forget reading all of the memories and thinking how in the world did Ava get that up her nose and how exciting it was for us both to be having boys..then them both being the nicu! I am blessed to have been able to become blogger friends with you this year!!

  2. And now I have babyitis... also, my husband also had a collapsed lung at birth and was supposedly the first infant to have the repair surgery. :) he was supposed to be small and weak for life... and now is 6'5" and huge. :)
