1: Lundquist Family Our Year In Review -2011-
3: In January, Angie received her 2011 Project Life and she was so excited. There was horrible Smog in the valley. We were scared to breathe. Gabe dropped the heavy barstool on his big toe and had to be rushed to the ER. It cut it pretty deep. Poor baby boy. Gabe also learned how to bite on his crib. Mom was not too happy about that. Gabe ate at Red Robin for the first time.He was in Balloon overload mode.
5: Our month of Love was a great one. For Valentines Day, Dallas made me Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Yum. Then he took me to The Old Spaghetti Factory where we had our Wedding Dinner. It was very romantic. We visited Grandma Ce Ce, Randy and their new dog Daisy. Gabe wasn't too sure about her. Our family had an awesome SuperBowl party, filled with food, food and more food. April made cute football cookies in the teams colors. We also took a family trip to St. George with the Reids. It was very fun and much needed. | February
7: This month was great. Gabe went to IFA and saw the little chicks. We had to pry him away from them when it was time to leave. Allie Graduated from Esthetic's School. Congrats Allie!!! We are so proud of her. Gabe got into mischief by dropping 5 balls down our heat vent. The weather was starting to warm up a little so Gabe played on Grandma and Grandpa Blairs basketball court. He LOVES any kind of ball. It was my Golden Birthday this year. 27 on the 27th. Dallas took me to The Melting Pot. It was so delicious. I also got some flowers from Dawn.
8: April | In April, Gabe went swimming at the Herriman Rec Center. He went with his good friends Aspen and Mollie. We had a visit from Grandma Ce Ce. Gabe loves Grandma Ce Ce. Dallas and Angie went to see the Joseph Smith movie with the DeHaans and really enjoyed it. Angie started Co-Directing the Miss South Jordan Pageant and got pampered. Gabe got spoiled for Easter and did his first Easter Egg Hunt. We also went to Antimony over Easter and visited with Grandpa Burr. Gabe loves the chickens and cows that are running around all over down there. Gabe and Dall spent the day together while Angie went to work. Yes, those are tears.
11: May | This month was Dalls Birthday. We celebrated by going to Texas Road House. He loves that place and he loves his steak. I hosted my first Baby Shower for a girl I work with, Shayla. She is having a girl so I made the shower colors coordinate with her nursery. Pink and Black. We went to Antimony for Memorial Day and visited Grandma Burr's grave. Nate showed Gabe the chickens. We had a Family night out and got Frozen Yogurt at Menchies. That place is so yummy. Me and Marni directed our very first Miss South Jordan Pageant. It was quite the experience and we cant wait to do it again.
12: Gabe has now learned how the drinking fountain works. We went to the zoo and got to see all sorts of animals. Gabe and his friends went to the Splash park and played all day long. We had to go to Country Fest and ride the Merry-Go-Round. Gabe also rode the Pony and Angie ate lots of Cotton candy. Dallin was baptized and we had a nice visit up to Rachels. Grandpa Burr came up for Fathers Day and we got to spend the day with all our Dads. Gabe played in the water at the pool and at the Lake. he loves the sand there. Gabe discovered a HUGE purple ball and would not let go of it.
15: Our Month of July was full of fun. We went to Antimony and all the Burr family was there. We watched the Parade and watched fire works at the Reservoir. Gabe got to do the races and he WON. Nate and April were Matched with their two beautiful children Abriha (3) and Taryku (2 mo.). They are siblings and we are so excited to welcome them into our family! Dall and Angie went to a REAL soccer game. We went to SnowBird with the DeHaans and had fun swimming and going on hikes. All the girls went swimming with the kiddos at the Roy Pool. Swimming is the best way to spend a hot July day. We had the opportunity to go to Lagoon with our good friends Derek and Nicole Johnson. We had a lot of fun. It felt like we were kids again.
17: August | Our month of August was Hot Hot Hot! We took Grandma Mel to the UP house and it was just like in the movie. We took TRAX with the Lunds to Gardner Village where we ate at Archibalds and shopped! Rylee taught Gabe how to make a bird feeder out of a pine cone, peanut butter and bird seed. Gabe got his first black eye by falling down a couple of cement steps. Ouch! Gabe and Boston went to the Splash Park in Herriman and had a lot of fun together. They even were holding hands in the car ride. Gabe, Emma and Avery took a little walk in the park one Sunday evening. They like to hold each others hands too. Gabe jumped on Grandma and Grandpas tramp a lot this month. All my closest girl friends got together one afternoon and let the kiddos play in the kiddie pool. We just talked while they played in the water and drew with chalk. We had a fabulous August!!!
18: September | This month was a very special month filled with all sorts of things. The weather was so nice all throughout the month so we took advantage of it by taking lots of walks in the park and having family BBQ's around Marni's campfire. We took a trip to Gardner Village with our neighbors. We took the train. The BYU/ Utah game was played. Grandpa and Gabe both represented. Angie had a Girls Night and made cute Halloween Spider Balls. Gabe took a trip to the Allergy Specialist to check his levels. His Egg allergy had gone down but his Milk allergy went up quite a bit. Last but NOT least, Gabe turned 2!!! We spent the day with Grandma Mel and Grandma CeCe at the Zoo. Gabe loved all the animals. He is fascinated by them. We also had a big party for him that night and lots of friends and family came. Gabe got spoiled. So many people love Gabe man. Happy Birthday Gabers. We LOVE you more than words can say.
21: We had a wonderful and spooky October. We hit it off by going up to Silver Lake over Conference Sunday. The fall colors were so beautiful. Gabe loved seeing the ducks in the water. I also found out that I am PREGNANT! We are so excited to welcome another baby into our family! The weather was nice so we went to Gardner Village a few times to see the Pumpkins and Witches. Gabe thought it was a little bright. Grams and Gabe had some one on one time together too. We went to our wards Trunk or Treat. It was a lot of fun. We carved pumpkins and ate the seeds. Yum.

Nate and April showed the family video's of Abriha and Tariku when they took their first trip to Ethiopia. Gabe gave mom quite a scare. He ate something with a little bit of milk in it and had a horrible allergic reaction. Angie finally had to give him the EPI Pen. Scary day! Something very sad happened. Angie had a miscarriage with baby #2 at 8 weeks. We are so sad. We have a hole in our hearts. We have wonderful family and friends that showed support and love by visiting and letting us know they are thinking about us. We celebrated Mom Mel's 57th birthday. Happy Birthday Mommy. We also enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with the Blair Family.

A November we will never forget! `

I made delicious Cinnamon Bear Popcorn for our neighbors and delivered them in cute Santa bags. I just LOVED my Christmas Tree this year. Beautiful. We were able to see The Nutcracker with Mom, Dad, Allie and Tommy. It was great, as usual. On Christmas Eve, we visited Grandparents, ate at Macaroni Grill and opened our Jammies.
