2011 Recap

2011 was a big year for us as a family, and of course the addition of Lila to our family was easily the highest point of the year, but we did a lot of fun things. Here are some pics of some of the things we did this year.


We started the year out right with some Arabic food and family and friends.

Jackson decided he didn't care for baby food. :)

And we had Cru over for a playdate!


Jackson got an ear infection. :(

And then learned to sit up all by himself!


Jackson got his first hair cut!

Maddy and Momma E came to visit and Maddy and Jackson were BFFs.

Our whole family went to the park.


The Easter Bunny came to visit us!

We dyed eggs and Jackson tried to eat them whole.

We went for lots of walks and saw the firefighter's memorial in Boise.

Jackson learned to pull up to standing!


We spent lots of time at the park in the nice weather.

We ate our breakfasts outside in the backyard.

And we all took a trip to the zoo.

And had a blast in the backyard.


My boys celebrated their 1st and 4th birthdays.

We cooled off in the pool.

Daddy finished the baby's changing table.

We painted our hands and feet and decorated the family growth chart.

Mommy went into labor in the morning on September 18th while watching Madagascar, Escape 2 Africa in bed with the kids, and took a test 5 hours before I delivered our precious Lila girl. :)
