2011 in a nutshell

2011 was a good year.
The major event that happened just a couple weeks prior to 2011 was the birth of our son.  We spent the first two months of 2011 in the NICU.  We sold the Ford Edge because it was a gas hog and bought our Chevy Malibu.  Brittany and Lukas were sealed in the temple for time and all eternity.  We took a trip up to Draper to see my friend Maddie get married in the temple!  We went to the Hoggle Zoo and were very disappointed with it.  Aaron got his tonsils out, CORBIN TURNED ONE YEARS OLD!! e sent out our first ever Christmas Cards.  Lizzie came up from Vegas to spend the day we me!

...and now we're in the stretch to the end of the year...
Our New Years Eve will be a good one.
One with high hopes for the new year.

2011 was a year of growing, but what year isn't?  Corbin has taught us so much and has made us better people.  Parenthood is truly another realm of  "life."  We go from self involved teenagers to learning spouses to unselfish parents.  Being a mom is seriously the most humbling wake up call ever.  I'm beginning to see just how I really need to be.  It's not about me.  It's about something a lot bigger.  And this new year is going to have that as its balance.  

"To love unselfishly is to..."

Thank you 2011 for being a good one.
hello 2012!
