2009 Recap in Pictures {Jan-June}

Welcome 2010!
We are so happy to finally meet you.
We hope you will bring us as much joy, laughter and love that the year 2009 did.

(Since I did not start my blog until this past year in March, so some of these pictures are never before seen.)

Here are just a few of the highlights from January through June that we will always cherish.....

In January....

Mia and Sophie posed as usual....


and hugged like they do so many times a day.

Thanks to Aunt Erin we went to see Disney Princesses on Ice!


It was beautiful.


We helped Mimo and Grandpa install hardwood floors.

And took a trip to Carbondale to visit Haley and her family!



In February.....

Gracie celebrated her first Valentine's Day with rosy cheeks.


Mia and Sophie raced..

(We hit up the park on a super warm day!)

and held hands.

The next day we were treating poor Gracie with the nebulizer.


In March......


There were more hugs....

and forts were built.

Gracie also started to walk!

Sophie had her last day ever as a two year old. Tear.

Then she turned THREE and we headed to McDonald's for her favorite meal.

(Look how she's making sure Ronnie's not getting to close to her!)

After lunch I took all three girls to the Magic House!

Sophie had a blast....

and loved pretending they were princesses in a castle.


The same night we headed to "watch night" at Mia's dance studio.


I snapped some pics of the birthday girl :)

Sophie had a fun Barbie and the Diamond Castle themed party....

and loved twirling in her tutu.

In April....


We celebrated Grandma Viefhaus' birthday!


Dyed Easter Eggs with their cousin Ella.

Went to see the Easter Bunny.


On Easter Ella dressed in the funky disco dots with them!

Mia had a fun field trip to the Butterfly House...

(tears were involved.... you can read about it here!)

The next day we took our own field trip (without Daddy. Boo.) to watch Maggie play against the University of Illinois.


In May.....

Sophie posed for me in my "slip" from when I was little.
We took another ROAD TRIP with the girls to Michigan to watch Maggie play.
We ALL stayed at the FARM and had such a fun time!!
Mia had her dance recital.

The girls bought treats from the ice cream man on several occasions.


Mia practiced hitting like Maggie.


The girls and Steve planted me my Mother's Day wish.... a Vegetable Garden!

Mia celebrated her July birthday at preschool with some yummy pudding dirt treats.


And then she GRADUATED!!


The girls got to visit my old high school (where Steve now works!) and they were pointing at my picture in the wall of fame!

There I am. So long ago.

Yet another road trip to Oklahoma City to watch Maggie!

So glad we got to witness her last game of the season..... and make it onto ESPN!

Gracie turned ONE!


I made my first shirts for Gracie's party.....matching cupcake tanks!


Gracie loved her cake!

In June.....

I made my first fleece blanket for Mia. Horses of Course!

We celebrated Father's Day and gave him this fun picture.

Sophie was the CUTEST flower girl in Steve's cousin Jenn's wedding.

And there was a lot of POOL fun taking place on our back patio.

(Stay tuned for July-December recap.....)

Happy New Year to you all!
