It seems as though I've abandoned my blog, which I truly kind of have.  Life has been extremely busy for me as of late ... these are the things we've been up to since my last post:

My amazing husband and I celebrated four years of being married (and no, this picture isn't from our anniversary .. I just realized we don't have many "just us" pictures anymore!).

We celebrated Christmas as a family (this was the picture on our Christmas card).

We threw a surprise birthday party for Claire, and some of her friends came over and spent the night.

Monte and I went on vacation to Playa del Carmen, Mexico where we stayed at an incredibly beautiful hotel and spent as much time in the sun as possible!

We celebrated Colin's 7th birthday with a Lego cake made by the world's best nanny, Krista!

Our front-toothless birthday boy got lots of great presents, too!

I've done a lot of snow removal...

... and plan on doing more with the anticipated 6 to 10 inches of snow that we're supposed to get in the next two days!

And unfortunately, we've had many bouts of sickness sweep through our family.

We also are listing our home for sale with anticipation of moving to a suburb that is closer to our extended families!  There has been so much going on and so much change lately - and that is why I've been away from the blog.  Here's hoping I learn to update more regularly! :)
