Really? Is it really 2012?

I think I really want to reflect on 2011 before I let 2012 take hold. Funny thing is I’m way into 2012 right now, but heck WHO CARES…….

This year was hard…financially. We had some UPS and downs and learning how to balance a entrepreneurs budget is like a roller coaster. SOMETIMES you got it and sometimes its taking me for a loop. But I feel like we ended the year on an UP. But no matter our circumstance I know that The Lord was taking care of us every step of the way.

Because of the previous Experiences Mine and Jase’s relationship grew a lot.

I successfully SURPRISED Jase with a Birthday Trip to Utah to go Snowboard for his Birthday! 2 points for me! 

My Evee turned 1, another First Birthday Slip ‘n’ Slide Party. GOODNESS I love those!  

My Best Friend moves away, but likes to visit! 

Klai got baptized this year. Still can’t get over the fact that I have an 8 year old.

Tutu and Grandpa come and visit and participate in baptism events. 

2 of my kids started Public School and because so…Home is only HALF terrifying to see.

Homeschool is not ANY easier because I only have 1 to teach….Why is that?

My only living grandparent dies. Which brings together the Calabio sisters and ma & pa come too. Although it was a sad event, it was REALLY nice to visit with all my sisters together.

Jase’s Dad speaks in Fall LDS General Conference and Jase gets to go and visit and see that. AWESOME experience.

Kids participate in the Fall Break Play: Klai, Rykel & Shae.

Being XMEN for Halloween was pretty cool…If I do say so myself!

Christmas was a very humbling one this year. AND I LOVED IT! The kids really got into giving and contributing this year. What a wonderful Christmas.
