You just know that the year is going to be a good one when the family has a great get together during the first week. (Read: Three Kings and a Full House.) Or watch the video!
January was also the month I learned a very valuable lesson. NEVER delete pictures from your camera unless you are absolutely 100% sure that you uploaded them to your computer. I only wish I had learned this lesson BEFORE Jack's 5th birthday party.
Not much happened in February, just a bout of Cabin Fever and my first cold/flu in over a year. But it was all made better with a little gift from my favorite kindergartner.
This picture doesn't need an explanation. I still shudder just thinking about it! (Read: Mexican Hillbillies.)
The arrival of the newest member of our family. After going through about a dozen names, we finally settled on Chimi. (Short for Chimichurri!)
During Spring Break, the kiddies got their first job as paleteros (popsicle vendors).
This was a busy month. First we went camping at El Rancho. Reminded me of the many weekends I spent camping with my grandparents.
And who can forget my rant about Nick's class not having a teacher for an entire month?
I received startling news that my eldest son, Nick, was malnourished. But after a visit with a nutritionist and the family doctor, we learned that he is only underweight.
We all had a good, hearty laugh at some of the World's Unsafest Helmets that came through Hubby's shop!
Ashley learned how to ride a bike. My nephew graduated from High School! We had visiting friends and family. We lost Brownie. And I fell in love with my new toy!
After what had to be the shortest Summer vacation in history, the kiddies went back to school. And I hung up on the President.
A gruesome creature was inches away from entering my bedroom.
And all of Mexico celebrated the Bicentennial!
I celebrated my 36th birthday. Ashley celebrated her 8th. And I struggled with my asthma, which put a damper on most of the festivities. I wonder if I should have tried the Skunk Lung Tea.
After a couple of weeks, I was finally on the road to recovery, thankful to be alive and for all of the blessings in my life. Hubby and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. And I had the greatest day in the history of this blog...I was the featured blogger on SITS!
Most of November was spent planning my in-law's Anniversary party. But I was able to pause for a moment to discover that there is beauty in doing the laundry. I finally got my dream car. And Jack participated in his 3rd or 4th parade of the year.
The month started off with a bang...My in-law's 46th Anniversary Celebration Extravaganza. I faced one of my biggest fears. And this Christmas is one the kiddies will never forget, because of the funny letter my brother-in-law read to them from El Niño Dios (Baby Jesus).
2010 was a pretty good year!
