Blogging a year at a time

It is amazing to me how time flies. 2010 was a great year, full of adventure, growth, and quality time with many people that we love. Hopefully I can capture some of 2011, before it is over.

Choir Concerts

Abby has choir as one of her elective credits this year. Choir was not her first choice, but she is having a good time. She had two concerts this month. One at the school, the other at Barnes and Noble.

Birthday Bonanza

TEENAGERS!! Wow! Oh how we love these three kiddos. They make us proud each and every day. When it is time for their birthday, a lot happens around here. It was the boys turn to have a party with friends.

Family Parties:

We went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner with the McNeil side of the family. The Coccimiglio family gathered at our house, and apparently I can't host and take pictures at the same time.

YW in Excellence

Abby was asked to share her creative cooking and artistic talents as part of the YW in excellence night. Each girl displayed something that they had accomplished or a talent. Abby did an amazing job with these cupcakes. They were lemon with a raspberry filing. She made white chocolate 'temples' for each cupcake. They were delicious. She is so talented. We are proud of her.

Halloween Night

Traditions change as the kids get older. We usually host a halloween dinner party, but due to the age of our kids, and their desire to hang out with friends, we changed plans.

7th Grade Halloween Party

We had a two part Halloween party. Abby's friends came over in the afternoon, and at dinner time, the boy's friends joined in for a few games and dinner, before they left for the 'haunted corn maze'.

Abby and her friends, Marissa, Sam, and Laura had fun doing a photo scavenger hunt through out our neighborhood, decorating cookies, painting pumpkins, and hanging out with the brother's friends, when they arrived.

Seven Peaks

We had season passes to Seven Peaks this summer, but we had a very difficult time using them. Someone always had an injury at our house, that prevented us from being able to 'swim'. We did sneak down a few times with friends and cousins.
