I LOVED Shay's post - documenting her family's year month-by-month, so I've decided to do the same. Except, try as I might I couldn't narrow my pictures down enough, so instead of 1 or 2 pictures per month... there's more like three or four. OOOPS!!!
We started January off right with our first zoo visit of 2010. Luke has been at a FANTASTIC age for the zoo this year. We got to welcome Smith William!
Luke took a "little" spill at Gibi's house :)
Luke was asked to be on the cover of McKinney Kids Magazine!
We took our best small group picture yet...
Luke made several new friends at a Super Bowl Party:
And we "enjoyed" record breaking snow in Dallas!
We took Luke to see Sesame Street Live:
I traveled to Jamaica with a group of MCA students to do mission work for GAIN International:
Luke attended (and didn't want to leave) his very first MCA softball game:
We celebrated Luke's 2nd Birthday with a dump truck/construction themed birthday party:
Then we celebrated Easter with an egg hunt and bubble gun:
Haha and I took Luke to paint the ballpark blue and we got to enjoy a STrawberry Ice :) Luke and Kensington bonded over banana pudding:
I decided to try out my green thumb and had some success (although it was super depressing to see it all wither away come August)
Luke looked SUPER cute for Mother's Day:
We took another trip to the zoo:
And we celebrated the end of the school year by playing outside with the hose:
We spend A LOT of time with these handsome guys (and several others) at various pools: I had some major crafty urges:
Luke took swimming lessons with his BFF Kensington:
We hit potty training HARD using Matchbox cars as incentive:
We stayed cool in the sprinkler:
Mommy finished putting together Luke's big boy room!
We spent even MORE time with MORE great friends:

We enjoyed some cooler weather by heading to the zoo, yet again:
We headed to the Arboretum to take some cute pumpkin pictures We joined LOTS of friends at our BFGs annual Harvest Party:
We trick-or-treated and caught up with friends:
Dave and I headed to The Homestead for a little R&R
We gave thanks for our "little blessings" - including a baby brother!
Luke helped cook (and enjoy) Thanksgiving Dinner:
We tried to soak in as much Holiday fun as we could with lots of friends:
... and lots of lights...
... and lots of singing...
... lots of celebrating... ... and lots of family traditions :)
