Year in Review - Part 2

July – July of course started out with a bang with fireworks on the 4th. Chris bought some and we did them in the driveway with the kids. Teagan was a little nervous about the loud noise. We spent the rest of the summer days either at the splash park, beach, or pool.

August – My first cruise!! My mom, Shana & I went on a 4-day cruise to Key West & Cozumel. It was a last minute decision and I was lucky enough that Chris didn’t even flinch when I asked him about it. He thought it was a great idea! We really had a great time. We enjoyed shopping in Key West, snorkeling in Mexico, and just relaxing by the pool at sea. Of course, I missed my little munchkins and Chris but it was a nice relaxing getaway.

Sept. – At the beginning of the month, we went to the Nick Hotel in Orlando. The hotel was totally decked out with Nickelodeon characters. We stayed in the Dora & Diego suite, which had bunk beds. Taylor & Teagan loved it! We mostly hung out by the awesome pools. It was like our own little waterpark. We also got to watch the mass sliming by the pool! Before we left, we went to a Spongebob live show. I was a short little getaway but LOTS of fun. We definitely will be going back there soon. On Teagan’s actual birthday we went out for dinner, all of us and nana. We went back to the house for cupcakes but while Chris was rough housing with the girls, Teagan fell and sprained her foot. We had to take her to the ER to check and see if she had broken anything. Luckily, she didn’t but she was in a lot of pain and could not walk for a few days. Then next weekend we had Teagan’s birthday party at Barrel O Monkey’s in Delray. It was an indoor play place, with a bubble machine, slides, a trampoline, and even a zipline! The theme was Yo Gabba Gabba, a show that Teagan loves! Despite her bum foot, she did have a great time at her birthday party.

October – This was another busy month for us. We went to the local farmers market for hayrides and went pumpkin picking. The farmers market had lots of other fun things to do like face painting, music, and food. The place was always soo packed on the weekends but we managed to go twice this month. Then the girls carved their pumpkins with daddy. On Halloween day, we went down to Miami to watch the Yo Gabba Gabba live show. It was the best kids show we’ve been to so far!! We went with our good friends Christi & Caitlin.

November – We visited Aunt Shana & Uncle Oliver for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, the girls & I ended up getting sick with a 24 hour bug. We did manage to go to the movies and see Tangled, Disney’s new princess movie. It was Teagan’s first time in the movie theater and she did really well. The movie was awesome!!!! We all enjoyed it :)

December – Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle rock! I heard this song over and over again this month! This was the best Christmas yet, since the girls are older and can understand more of it. Every night during December, we watched a Christmas movie on the ABC Family channel. It was sooo much fun & great family time :) Every night during bath I’d turn on Pandora radio and we would sing Christmas songs while getting clean. December was such a magical month. On Christmas Eve, we left out cookies and milk for Santa and scattered “reindeer food” out on the lawn. That was a concoction of glitter & oats. We also threw out a few carrots for the reindeer too ;) The kids enjoyed opening their presents on Christmas morning, at 6:45 to be exact! We were lucky to have grandma & grandpa come over and spend a few days along with Nana and Uncle Adam. We ended the year by doing some fireworks out in the driveway, watching our Noles kick some butt in the Chik-Fil-A bowl, and then watching the ball drop on tv.

Overall, 2010 was a pretty good year! I am looking forward to 2011 and what it brings!
