2011~ Let's Review

Looking back, 2011 has been a year of surprise blessings for our family.  Let's review.


We began the year with these two monkeys and {one} on the way.

On January 19, we got the surprise of our life when we discovered we were pregnant with 2, a boy and a girl.


The monkeys didn't care and simply wanted to play in the dirt.

But Bob and I knew life was a changing.  So we dropped the kids off with grandparents and headed west for our fantastic babymoon.

brought us back to reality.

and back outside.


we're still outside

looking for Easter eggs



having a few meltdowns

and turning 4

about to explode

trying to prepare for a whole new adventure

and 2 became 4

We were all so very tired.

well, almost all of us.

a month of major adjustments

Then God sent us Mathers!

was spent cooling off with family

We began venturing out as a family

and got our first smiles

brought us to school

brought us hope that he will some day get along with these babes

brought us to the apple orchard

and brought us many more smiles


this was it.

We were so busy selling a house, buying a house, and moving


Getting settled in the new house

where Eveley now has unlimited playdates with neighbors!

It was trying for everyone.

Twins get their first taste of food.
And love it.



Happy Birthday, Caleb

Happy Birthday, Jesus


We never could have imagined what God had in store for our family in 2011, and we thank Him for His faithfulness and blessings.  Knowing He holds tomorrow, we look forward to 2012.

Happy New Year!
