Looking back on 2010

Wow, what a wonderful, busy, crazy year it's been!  2010 has been full of changes in every sense of the word. We had become a family of 4 in April when Benjamin entered the world nearly 6 weeks early. It was such a trying time, having a nearly 3 year old at home and a preemie in the NICU. He's doing so well now, you'd never know he was premature.

Victoria has changed so much over the course of the year. She did so well with the transition of only child to big sister. She is such a smart, beautiful little girl and she really keeps us on our toes!

We've made some changes at home- Derek quit his job to be a stay-at-home Dad to our kiddos, which has been so wonderful and less stressful all around for me! My career has also been crazy, but we've had a very productive year at work... I'm hoping that translates into a very nice bonus :) But we will see!!

Another highlight of 2010 was finding and old hobby again and learning a new one. I've begun to crochet again and I forgot how wonderful it feels to create gifts and things. I've also taught myself to knit, which has been a mystery to me for so many years, a curiousity that I have finally explored and now I feel comfortable in my new found craft. Since I rediscovered my hobby in August, I've completed two blankets, with one more in the works. I've made 3 crocheted beanie hats, 3 scarves and 3 purses. I've also made a knitted neckwarmer and two santa hats and have a big, wool scarf in progress. Here is just a snippet of my wooly creations for 2010, and I hope to have a larger collage for 2011!
