- and she turned 11

- and we went on our family road trip to Indiana

- had a great family vacation in IN and visited lots of relatives on Zac's side of the family

- Abigail continued in ballet

- Zac ran his 17.5 mile mountain Wahsatch Steeplechase race

- we took the kids on a hike to Stewart Falls

- I did a lot of walking for exercise

- Zac and I got to go to Lagoon amusement park (for free!) as a "date"

- Elisabeth had a crazy overnight sleep apnea study done at the hospital and then had her tonsils and adenoids removed

- we had Thanksgiving dinner at our house

- we had a Christmas party/birthday party with Zac's nearby siblings

- Isaac continued piano lessons

- we visited The Treehouse Museum, children story museum

- and we celebrated New Year's with ice cream and homemade bread - wohoo!

- and I read over 100 books (final total coming soooooon . . . .)


So, all in all, a pretty great year I'd say. I've probably forgotten some stuff, but that covers most of the eventful moments I think.

One of the things that made this year fantastically different for me was the opportunity to go on a couple business trips with Zac. That has never happened before and it was really wonderful. I also rediscovered a lot of old music I used to listen to (due in part to my b-day bash flashbacking and journal rereading) and actually found a lot of newer music too. Having an ipod has made a huge difference to me in this endeavor and it has made me a much happier me in many ways. :)

I don't know - I can't always say that I have accomplished any huge things, not any big things noticeable to many other people at least. There have been many trippings and failings on my part this last year. There have been really rough spots. But I feel good about this coming 2011 right now. So that's a good thing.

(And maybe sometime I'll post about some of my goals and stuff for this coming year. Or maybe not. We'll see if I get around to it eventually). ;)

That sounds like a very eventful year. I have no idea what I did last year since I didn't blog or journal, which is so bad. I need to get back to it.
