Those of you who know me know that my memory fails me from time to time, so I thought I would take a look back at my calendar and write down significant events from 2010! It was a great year and we did a lot of great things.
Starting in January when Aaron bought his BMW! He's always wanted one and he finally got one. He got a great deal on it but the $ he's spent on it since has more than made up for his "good deal" :(
February was a fun month! We starting planning a trip months before and finally Feb came and we went to Mexico with some really great friends, but not before celebrating Declan's 1st birthday! Although we were technically away on D's bday (Valentine's day) we had an early party for him:)
March was one of those months where nothing significant happened. One of those long winter months that you wish you could just skip.
April Aaron turned 28! And Declan took his first steps finally (14 months old!)
May we celebrated Lilah's 4Th birthday!
June was Lilah's ballet dance recital! She did so awesome and LOVED it!
July came up quickly and although we love camping we do not love it in the cold and rain:( We had already planned the time off and the long weekend worked out well except that is was so cold. I don't think we'll make that mistake again but we did have a good time and the kids still loved it! Aaron and I also celebrated our 8Th anniversary! And mom & dad's 30Th anniversary came a week later. Also in July I started watching my niece Cali everyday:)
In August Aaron and I, along with our friends spent a weekend in Vancouver. It was so nice to get away and enjoy the beautiful city. I think we may have to make it an annual event because it was just so much fun:)
September Lilah started preschool! She has loved every minute of it. Also Julie (my sis) finally made the big move and her and a friend rented a condo together! I love that she moved out and see her more now than when she actually lived at home.
In October my mom-in-law and I flew to California to be there for the birth of my niece Olivia Teresa, unfortunately we were and hour and a half late and just missed it! But I got to spend 5 days with her and am so fortunate! I loved spending time with my nephew Aaron also and getting to know him better. I put Lilah in skating lessons too and she did so well.
November I turned 28! And Julie turned 25. Julie had a major scare with what they thought was a tumor. She had a brain biopsy and on the same day my bro, Tim, had a big fall at work. Not a very good day in the Rempel household:( We didn't get the results from Julie's biopsy til Dec but it was good news and brought our whole family a lot closer. She has cortical displacia (Sp?) which just means her cell grow in an irregular way but its not serious and we can thank God for that! I also took a short trip with 2 girlfriends to the Island to visit Lilah's midwife Jane! She is an awesome person and a small getaway was just what I needed this month. Sophie Marie, another niece of mine, was born on the 30Th! being 10 days late we were all waiting anxiously.
December was a good month! Nothing significant really happened but we did have an amazing Christmas and I can only look forward to 2011 and hope its as good as last year!
