Looking Back on 2010

2010 was such a great year that I wanted to take a few minutes and reflect on some of the great things we did this year.  Here are the highlights...enjoy!


At the beginning of January, I made one of the best decisions of my life and started a home-business.  I joined an awesome team and have been able to create income for myself as a stay-at-home mom. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE working for this company!

On the 13th, Makenzie turned 4!  We celebrated in style with a tea party and fashion show.  She had a blast and loved getting all dressed up.  It's hard to believe she'll be 5 in less than 2 weeks!


Daddy brought home a calf that had to be bottle-fed. It was a great experience for Makenzie and Presley.  They named the calf Buddy, and helped feed him every day.


In May, we celebrated Presley's 3rd birthday with an ice cream sundae party and some slip-n-sliding.

We also took a family vacation to Panama City Beach, FL.  We had a GREAT time, and the girls loved every minute of being on the beach...just look at how relaxing it was for them!


In June, we celebrated Wayne's birthday and our anniversary with a weekend away in Natchez.  It was so nice to have some alone time with each other and remember why we fell in love in the first place.  While we were there, I fell in love with Natchez.  So much history, such beautiful homes!  I was in heaven!


In July, we welcomed a new addition to our family.  My nephew, Brennan, was born.  He's the first little boy in our family so we were extremely excited.  My niece and nephew definitely have my heart.


My big girl started 4 year old kindergarten, and it about killed me!  I thought I was excited for her until I dropped her off at the school and drove away.  I cried for the rest of the day and watched the clock until time to pick her up.  Thank God she enjoys school!

I also attended my first Melaleuca convention in August.  I flew all the way to Utah by myself (my first time flying), and I loved every minute of it.  I had such a great time and LOVED getting to meet some of the other gals on my team.  I CAN'T WAIT until this year's convention!  Minneapolis here I come! :)

Well, that's how the first half of this past year played out...the latter half is more recent so I thought I'd spare you.  If you'd like to see what we did from September on, feel free to look back in our past posts.  It's been an AWESOME year with lots of firsts for us.  We can't wait to see what 2011 will hold!
