3: Sewing with Grandma Ellie got a sewing machine for her 10th birthday. She is lucky enough to have 2 grandmas that know how to sew. Grandma Chris came over to help her learn some basics, and sew some pajama pants for herself. (January 2011)
4: Peek A Boo This was the basket that we used to store blankets in. It was typically off limits to play in, but Leah was being so cute that I decided to let it slide this one time. This is her at around 2 1/2,
5: Brave Carter Carter went to his friend Ella's birthday party in January. She had a reptile party, as you can see. Carter was much braver than I would have been.
6: LANES | Off Track Bowling At
7: Because we were in year round school, every nine weeks the kids would get a three week break from school. This was during your break in February of 2011. I tried to keep everyone busy and do a few fun things each time we were off track.

10: Disney on Ice We went to Disney on Ice with Grandma, and Kerry, Jeff, Sam and Lizzy in March. Somehow we didn't end up with pictures of each person, but they all were there with us, even if not pictured. It was a fun night.
13: Cousins and Friends | Leah and Lizzy sent lots of time playing and wearing each other out. During this time they were going to preschool together and Kerry and I traded babysitting a lot in the day so there was plenty of time to play (and fight!)
14: Pumpkin the cat and Harley the dog are our 2 Furry friends. We got pumpkin in the summer of 2006 and Harley in the summer of 2009. Pumpkin was not too excited about us getting him a dog friend and started to spend much of his time outside after Harely's arrival. Harley loves to chase and bite Pumpkin, although deep down we know they love each other. Every once in a while we will find them cuddled together on our bed.
15: DANCE This year Ellie danced with SYNERGY dance for the second year in a row. She took a jazz class and was in the same class as her friend Haley. She is a good little dancer and is really enjoying it.
