Top 10 from 2010…

I think that 2010 has been the fastest year ever. I just don’t know where all the time has gone! I wanted to do a look back on 2010 and some of the big {and not so big} things that have happened in our family. I’ll list these in chronological order.

1. My Wreck/Buying a new car

My 2010 started with a bang! On January 1 a lady hit my car and totaled it. I did end up getting a nice {new to me} car out of the whole situation.

  2. Daniel played Baseball and started Karate

Daniel played baseball this year and was I ever introduced to a new world. Little kid baseball is intense!

He also started karate and is doing great! He earned his yellow/white belt this December.

 3. Boys Will Be Boys!

Daniel fell into the wall and almost broke his nose and Luke busted his forehead open… all in the same week.

 4. Disney Family Vacation!

So much fun!!! We LOVE family vacations and we LOVE Disney. I think we just might be Disney fanatics.

5. Summer Fun

We had so much fun this summer being off schedule and keeping busy with our Summer Vacation Chart. We made lots of trips to the lake this summer too, which was great!

6.  Our Tenth Anniversary

I think this was my favorite part of 2010. We had such a wonderful, fun, relaxing 10th anniversary. It was great to celebrate 10 years of being married to my wonderful hubby!!

The rest of my list if from December. So we either pack a lot in a month OR my memory doesn’t go back to far… hmmmmm…. Not sure which 😉

7. Jeremy the Elf

I never dreamed we would have so much fun with a little elf visitor, but he kids loved it and we had a lot of fun with the mischief!

 8. The Boys’ Birthdays

Daniel and Luke were super pumped about their birthdays this year! I don’t know what the deal was, but turning 8 and 4 was a HUGE deal this year! J

 9. Christmas Visitors

We had Dan’s entire family (minus 1) come for a weekend in December. It was nice having everyone at church and the boys LOVED playing with all of their cousins!

My parents and Pawpaw visited too, but I have no visual proof!

 10. A House Full of Flu!

Everyone in the house had the flu at Christmas and right after. Well, everyone but me {and thankfully my doctor put me on a Tamiflu type medicine}. I don’t recommend it. It was {slash is- we’re still recovering around here} terrible. Get your flu shot! You think I would have learned this lesson by now, but I think it has sunk in with me now!

Those are 10 memories from 2010. We had a lot of other happenings this year and I’m SURE I’ve left off something terribly important. J I’m looking forward to 2011 and praying for a super positive year!!

  1. I’ve so enjoyed following the family on your blog in 2010 and look forward to your adventures in 2011! LOVED the elf..what a great traditon (where did you find him?) And I also LOVED the family picture from everyone being there (minus 1) ! I wish I could have joined in on the fun. HAPPY New Year to all, may your year be filled with God’s blessings! Love and hugs~

    1. Thank you for the sweet words Sharolyn! We got our elf at TJ Maxx, it’s not the real Elf on a Shelf (Mary has the real one) but any little elf will do. He was fun. 🙂 Wish you could have joined in too~ there were a lot of us. Ha! A happy New Year to you and your family as well!!
