Top 11 of 11

2011 has been a very memorable year-- in some good ways and in some not so good ways.  Here's a look back at the Main family's top 11 of 2011...

I'm going to lump this all together into "medical stuff"-- two surgeries, two ER visits, a sleep study, allergic reactions, etc., etc., etc....

some friends came for a visit (I said at the time that we did so many fun things this week that it was practically like we were on vacation!).

I know that I've already said "medical stuff", but Ruby getting chicken pox deserves its own spot on the top 11 list.  As difficult as it was, I will never forget the fun we had driving around town for our alphabet scavenger hunt!

a normal "Kotnik" dinner turns into a backyard watergun fight!  This day has now become legend (wait for it) -ary!

Gatlinburg!  After selling my grandmother's house for her, she thanked us by sending us on a wonderful mini-vacation to Gatlinburg.  My wonderful in-laws watched our 3 little ones and  Jason and I were able to have 3 days of uninterupted interaction for the first time in nearly 10 years!

both of my children find active activities that they love!  Although it has been quite an adjustment taking kids here and there and everywhere, I am so happy that Ruby is in love with ballet and Eli is crazy about basketball.

Wishing you all a happy new year and a 2012 full of memories (and mostly the good non-medical, non-chicken pox kind!).

  1. I love that you did this. It was a wonderful vacation to come up there to see everyone. I think that visit would also make one of me top 10 (11) things I did last year too. I love the fact that you ran in the half marathon. I hope you and your family have a wonderful and fulfilling 2012!
