We went to Amana for our annual friends weekend. We stayed at a waterpark hotel all week. Always a fun time.
Our newest family member joined us in March. Stella is a great little dog. A true lap dog.
We bought a camper in May. So we enjoyed our first of several camping weekends. Camping is one of our favorite family past times.
Veronika's 11th birthday
We love Colorado! It helps that Ben's sister lives near Colorado Springs. Gives us more of a reason to go out there.
Off to the mountains for some ATVing. This was probably one of my favorite trips ever.
Sweet corn! An Iowa favorite. We froze about 60 quarts of corn.

Our girls weekend in Prairie Du Chien, WI
Veronika and I along with Ben's mom and aunt made a weekend out of art shows and apple orchards. We made stops in Amish country, Decorah, Prairie Du Chien, Effigy Mounds and McGregor. It is beautiful up there in fall.
Veronika went to a cheerleading camp then cheered at a home football game.

My little brother got married! I have a wonderful new sister in law and neice. It was a very casual wedding. Short and sweet!
All the kids on my mom's side of the family waiting for the lighted Christmas Parade to start in Washington. It was really great to spend time with this side of the family. It doesn't happen very often.
I can't believe I don't have any photos to share from this month. We have been busy with Christmas concerts, parties and shopping just haven't had the camera in tow. I will be sure to have the camera ready for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
We really hope that your 2010 has been as blessed as ours. Happy 2011, make it the best year yet!
As you can see, I wasn't very good about keeping the blog up to date in 2010. My goal is to do a better job next year.
