Goodbye 2011…..

It was a good year!! I can’t believe how much the kids have changed in one year. Harper was a BABY last January and now she is 2 going on 16 (don’t believe me? spend 10 minutes with her).

In honor of the year that was 2011, I have compiled a recap of pictures from our biggest events. Mainly because I have no life, so this is how I spent my Saturday and also because……..welp can’t think of another reason, basically I have no life, that’s all.

{The words in red have a link to that blog post.}
