First Post of 2012

Today is my first official post of 2012! Hard to believe I have been blogging since 2009! anyways, we had a great past week and rang in the new year with family and friends! It was hard to top christmas week but this past week was a close second;) Carl only had to work 2 days last week so we were spoiled and had daddy around almost all week! The boys and I enjoyed it very much:) We spent alot of time cleaning and organizing and just enjoying time together. We also enjoyed spending time with both of our families and again stuffing our faces;) I also officially started my workouts post-baby! I missed working out like that! I started last monday and have not missed a day...and don't plan on it! Those of you who know me, know I LOVE working out, it is such a stress relief for me. I am so ready to shred this bit of baby weight I have left and then some:) Hoping to be back in all my clothes in a few months (I did pack up all the remaining maternity clothes on sunday...except for a few comfy pants;))

 On New Years Eve we went over to coach and grammy's to celebrate with all of the Schindewolf family. We all ate some delicious food and got another chance to visit. Carl even bought a few fireworks and sparklers to try out with tripp. Tripp loved them!! He even tried to touch the fire! Such a little dare devil. Cousin kate wasn't too sure about the sparklers but had a good time outside with "trippey". We also enjoyed all the lights on Schindewolf lane one last time:(

New Year's Day we woke up and carl and tripp went to get us some breakfast. We ate, fed the boys and lazied around for a while. Then we got ready and headed over to my mom's for a yummy lunch! We had some delicious beef tenderloin, black eyed peas, cabbage, potatoes and rolls. We spent time with my family and I even got to sneak in a nap:) It was a great day. I feel so blessed to have 3 handsome men in my life...don't be too jealous ladies;)

Well it's time for a new year! So many great things happened in are a few highlights for us:
  • tripp turned 1
  • carl got a great new job
  • we found out we were expecting another baby
  • We found out it was a boy surprisingly at 13 weeks!
  • We got a new car...a bigger one and just in time for baby number #2 on the way
  • tripp took his first swimming lessons and had his first gymboree class
  • carl and I celebrated 4 wonderful years together
  • tucker was born and completed our little family
  • we celebrated tucker's first thanksgiving and christmas
  • we rang in the new year as a complete family of four!!
We are so looking forward to what 2012 has in store for us, a few things we are looking forward to:
  • tripp turning 2!
  • tucker turning 1
  • going on a disney cruise!!
  • carl and I turning 29 and enjoying our last year in the "20's"
