January - First time Ice Skating! She considers herself an old pro now, but that first time was pure sugar-rush! (Pictured with Miss Karen, her teacher in life, and in ice skating!)
January (2) - Ready for dance class! I mostly posted this one for a comparison with the December shot later... She was SO little in January.
February - Snow that led into a perfectly beautiful day for a family walk. The water was literally rushing under the snow it was so warm, but we stayed on the paths and it was a great day.
March - It's not all about Abby, you know. This is a picture I got of the arch on a really nice day.
April - Easter picture! She was so happy to be so dressed up, of course!
May - the invasion began. It would last for about eight weeks, but I post this as a reminder of how bad it was...
June was back to picture-heavy... First up is the newly retired In-Laws! We had a great party at their house, and here they are once the festivities were complete:
I just really like this picture, also from the retirement party.
July (again) - As I worry about running out of "firsts" to share with Abby, here is her first Ferris Wheel ride!
August (again) - Photobomb by the frog on the left!
September - A great visit with my brother and his family, including niece Shannon!
October - A beautiful, pensive looking picture of Abby. We spent the better part of an hour throwing rocks into the river.
November - VERY thin month for pictures. This is both the best that I got and the only decent one of Abby. This was during our preparation for our Thanksgiving Turkey Trot!
December - Christmas Card Photo Shoot One - best of the night but not good enough. (At the Magic House)
December (2/3) - Another day, another try for the *perfect* picture. I got it, but this one fell short. (Cards have not gone out yet, so I can not post that pic tonight - bummer!)
The final picture of 2011 is this - Celebrating the Noon New Year at the Science Center. Abby got REALLY into it with about 15 minutes to go. It was a blast.
Hoping to take better pictures next year - bummed about some of the thinness here...
Happy New Year!
