A Few Moments From 2011

January

Spent some time getting vehicles stuck in the snow and sledding with Mike’s family at their stake camp.

I wouldn’t say that totally summed up our year, rather, it was an occasional glimpse in on us during the year – with many significant events likely left out and many trivial ones left in. Still, I can’t offer 2011 any real complaints. It was a good year and one full of happy memories that I will enjoy looking back on as we cruise along leaving this year as a small dot in time.

Love your yearly glimpse! You are so good to document all the great goings on at your house... That's my new year's resolution, because time just goes by too quickly!
