2011 Reflections

2011 was an awesome year.  This the first year I've kept track of my crafts/recipes/family outings through blogging, and I must say I'm glad I did.  It is so enjoyable looking back and reminiscing. I decided to collect some of my faves for today's post, month by month, starting when I first started blogging.

Our little one enjoyed his first taste of maple syrup on Maine Maple Sunday.
The yummiest treat was Whoopie Pies.
The most enjoyed crafty projects were tied between the Wooden Push Cart and the Play Flower Garden.

April 2011
Brought the beginnings of the Excavation of our garage and our baby's love for trucks.
The yummiest treat was Carrot Cake.
The most enjoyed craft project was The Car Road Made from Jeans.

October 2011
Our family went Barnyard as we paraded around a local farm.
We ate Cinnamon Swirl Cake.
A birthday party gift was a Superhero Cape, which reportedly he didn't want to wear because he didn't want to ruin.

Snickerdoodle whoopie pies.
 I made and shared the pattern/s for the Alligator Puppet and the Five Little Monkeys Song.

December 2011
 We enjoyed watching our Little Fireman enjoy Christmas.
The Danish Chocolate Orange Cookies disappeared quicker than I anticipated.
The upcycled hat from old sweaters turned out to be a great Christmas hat.

2011 was a fantastic, fun filled and busy year.  Can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for us!
