2010 A Year In Review

January was the beginning with us settling in to our home in Arizona.  After an Exhausting year, trying to find a home in California, we finally gave in and moved to Arizona.  Blake and Logan quickly adjusted to their new school, Leading Edge Academy.  Scott and I spent the better part of the month sprucing up the, painting, and all that good stuff.  Scott spent 3 days assembling a redwood swing set in our backyard.  Carson turned 3.  Taylor and Amanda came for a visit!  We enjoyed a day at Saguaro Lake and they got to experience Sonic (I believe that may have been the highlight of their trip)!

February, was mostly spent battling sickies (as we do every winter).  Logan turned 8, and enjoyed spending the day playing with his remote control boat on the lake in our neighborhood. 

March began with a bang!  We were thrilled that we found out that we were expecting!  Not so thrilled however that for my 33 birthday I got Morning sickness, ugh! 

April definitely came in like a lion, and went out like one too.  We had fun celebrating Easter, and Blake's 10th birthday.  We spent plenty of time at the doctor, as strep throat viciously went through each of the boys.  We had a trip to the ER with Carson...who pulled a TV down on his leg, thankfully his leg was not broken.  The boys all had fun at our neighborhood fishing Derby.  And the month ended with an Ambulance coming out after Logan managed to step on a Catfish, which pierced through the bottom of his shoe, caused his shoe to be stuck onto his foot, and bleed pretty significantly, once again, thankfully he was fine!

May marked the end of the school year.  Blake and Logan made Honor Roll once again, and were rewarded with a trip to In-N-Out Burger for all their hard work.

In June we found out that our new addition was going to be a Baby GIRL!  We were excited to be able to be bringing pink into the house!!  The boys and I took a trip to a water park which was a lot of fun.  Unfortunately our AC went out, but I was relieved when it was repaired the next day.

In July our AC went out once again, ugh!  115 is no fun, especially when you've got no AC.  Thankfully it was fixed the next day, and this time, they fixed the real problem. We chose a name for our baby girl, Ava Grace.  Our Expedition was stolen, and recovered 4 days later, in perfect condition (Thank God again).

August was Back to School!  Fun, fun, fun, back to school shopping, clothes, shoes, supplies,'s the most wonderful time of the year!  Blake started 4th, Logan started 3rd, and Hunter began Kindergarten!

September was rather quiet and uneventful. I was finally in my third trimester, ready to meet our little Ava. 

October marked our 11th Wedding Anniversary.  We took the boys out to a steak house to celebrate, where they each ordered Prime Rib, even Carson...oh my.  My dear Friends Meagan and Becky blessed me with a baby shower!  All 4 boys had their first cavity free dentist appointment!!  I'd say October was a great month!  Let's not forget Halloween :)

November was thrilling!  Ava Grace Sabbe was born 11-5-10.  Born at 8:21pm, she weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce of pure joy, and 21 1/2 inches.  She was well worth the wait!

December, a whirlwind as usual.  Scott enjoyed the best gift ever for his birthday...Amanda came to visit us!  It was so nice having her here, but the visit went by way to quickly!  Hunter celebrated his 6th Birthday. We had fun decorating candy houses and making cookies for Santa. We all enjoyed Christmas, and of course the prime rib!

What a year!  What will 2011 bring!!
