Only a couple of more days before 2009 is here. I cant believe the holidays are already over!!
Here are some of our highlights from the past year.
We started 2008 on a very sick note. Gavin spent some time in the ER and was diagnosed with pneumonia. He missed 2 weeks of school, karate, and Tball. It probably took a good month or so before he was back to his normal self. On the 23rd we celebrated Ken's 34th birthday.
Gavin celebrated 100 days of school by making a project out of 100 Skittles. It was fun for both of to make!
Gavin also had his last Tball game of the season and awards ceremony which he was so proud about.
Katelyn tested her limits this month with getting into everything she possibly could to make a mess in the house!!
March 3rd Ken and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary. :)
Gavin started his season of basketball and was on the Nuggets.
Katelyn officially moved out of her high chair and into a big girl booster chair.
We celebrated Easter at the end of the month and went to our church's Easter Egg Hunt at a local park.
The kids also took their annual mystery trip with my inlaws to Dinosaur World
We started out April with Gavin being on Spring Break from school. We stayed at a cute little hotel on the beach for a couple of days. Gavin and Katelyn had so much fun playing at the beach.
We also took the kids to the zoo while we were on Spring Break. Gavin rode a camel and a horse. Katelyn had the time of her life in the bird exhibit where she and I fed some of the colorful birds.
May brought the end of the basketball season for Gavin. He had a wonderful time playing and was once of the strongest players on the team.
We also went to Adventure Island for the first time this season. Katelyn LOVED the water and tried to keep up with the big kids as much as possible. She did NOT like the water shoes I bought her and kept trying to take them off all day.
On the 27th Gavin had the best night ever when we took him to his first Rays game. We had great seats right on the 3rd base line. We were all very surprised when a foul ball came our way and Ken caught it!! The night got even more special when the game was over and we were able to walk out on the baseball field!!
Gavin's last day of kindergarten was on the 4th. He was excited that he was officially a 1st grader!
We also spent alot of time in pools, slip n slide, and sprinklers to deal with the heat of summer. Katelyn loves anytime she has in the water and Gavin finally mastered swimming.
On the 20th I celebrated my 34th birthday! Woo hoo :)
Katelyn finally got her very first Big Girl Haircut from Uncle Johnnie. She was such a good girl and sat nicely the whole time.
Love you John!
We also celebrated Gavin's 6th birthday in July. We had friends and family over to have fun in the water slide that we rented. Gavin told me it was his best birthday ever!
We also took our family vacation this month to St Augustine. We all loved it and cant wait to go back!
Katelyn also stared school in August. She goes 2 days a week for 3 hours at a time. She was not very happy about going for a couple of weeks but now LOVES going and cries the days I don't take her!
On the 25th we celebrated Katelyn's 2nd birthday. We had our friends and family over for a Dora themed party. She enjoyed opening her presents and playing with all the kids!!
And of course Halloween. Gavin was the Hulk this year and Katelyn was a Ladybug. We went to the Trunk or Treat at our church and then a couple of houses in our neighborhood.
