2011...a pictorial year in review!

Hai! Happy New Year everyone!!! How was your night last night...what'd you do?! We went out for dinner & drinks at a local piano bar with a couple friends of ours, then stayed at a hotel while my sister watched the babe {I still call her a baby b/c regardless of how old she is, she'll allllways be my baby}. We had a great time, but I'm happy the holidays are over & a new year is here once again!

As promised, I'm here to deliver my annual photo recap of the past year - forgive me in advance, lots of my pics from last year will be of the munchkin...my life sorta revolved around her last year {and for the rest of my life, ha!}. I can't believe I'm starting my third year of blogging this year! The Dennifers have a lot planned this year, so I can't wait to see what the year brings & I am so honored all of you have decided to join me {or stay with me} for the ride! Anywho, without further adieu, my recap of 2011:


We did absolutely nothing for NYE last year because we had a 2.5 month old, so my favorite & kind of unnerving moment in January was getting Amaya's ears pierced. You can kinda see the pierced ears in this photo of her playing under her activity mat/gym thingy. :)


Amaya trying out her Exersaucer for the first time...

And celebrating the hubbs big 3-0 birthday with friends & family!!


Celebrating our second wedding anniversary {went out for dinner/drinks & a movie}...

Amaya's first St. Patty's Day!

And cheering on our Alma Mater {G-M-U Know!} during the 2011 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament!


Amaya's first Easter... :)


My 28th Birthday Brunch...the food was ahhh-mazing!

And Amaya's first trip to the pool Memorial Day weekend 2011...


Dennis' first Father's Day with his Baby AJ!!
{please excuse the photo quality, the lighting was bad in the place we went}

And my first girls trip since Amaya's birth to Montego Bay Jamaica, woot!


Amaya's first modeling "job" ;)


Braving Hurricane Irene & the first earthquake I ever remember in VA all within a week of each other! This pic (shown as originally posted/unedited) was taken the weekend of the "hurricane", which amounted to little more than heavy wind & rain.


FINALLY finishing my very first furniture makeover, yaay!

And the wedding of some close friend's of ours...

And reconnecting with some old friends @ my TEN year high school reunion - eeek!


Celebrating my beautiful Munchkin's first birthday - I can't believe how quickly that year flew by!


Our first family vaca to Disney World!!

Thanksgiving 2011...


Amaya's 2nd Christmas! We have a tradition of letting her open one gift (jammies to wear that night) on Christmas Eve - it's something my mom used to do with us as kiddos & I decided to carry it on with my child{ren}...

{NOTE: this is just a Christmas Eve pic from my phone, I've yet to upload the Christmas morning pics from my cam}

So that wraps up last year for me, hope you enjoyed my stroll back thru my most memorable moments/times in 2011! I am hoping for 2012 to be a very productive year for me & that we can accomplish everything we have planned in the house. Praying that God continues to Bless me & my family...and wishing the same to all of you - my wonderful readers! Can't wait to see what this year holds for us! 'Till next time!
