Peace out 2010!

This is because I just got home from the gym, had a nice chat with my mom, Caleb is working late, and I am eating leftovers for dinner. Which include but are not limited to green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, baby carrots, and a slice of pizza. And because I should be doing something productive like laundry or washing dishes. And because this will be my last post of 2010. Because I have to work the next two days and after that it will be 2011.

The year in review. Because its fun! And it has been a crazy year. Check it out.

Christmas 2009
Why is the pictures of my family a full body shot? No one wants to see that!

January: the only pictures I have of this month are snow. So that was basically the whole month. Snow, snow, snow.
I hate you snow. Even if you are beautiful.

February 2010: Our five year dating anniversary (the flowers), Caleb's 22nd birthday (with Joe, of course), and our adorable friend Abbey Dunbar being super preggers.

March: Clearly the month of the car. Caleb fixed up his Civic. My Buick died and I got a new car. Chloe is a Toyota Corolla sport. And we are bff. March is also the month that KU lost in the NCAA tournament. That we were supposed to win. A sad day.

April: I went to Chicago with my super cute friend Leah Dickter. We had a great time and I am officially in love with Chicago!
If you watch my weight throughout the months, you can see what marriage has done to me.

May: A family birthday dinner for Zach and Audrey. Also trying to squeeze in time with friends before we make the big move to Tennessee! Including brand new baby Ava Dunbar, who obviously hates me!

June: On June 1st we moved to East Tennessee. All our stuff went in a truck and we drove down here. We found a new apartment, Caleb started his new job and I started my new job on my birthday, June 21st. But our apartment is awesome and right across the street from a yummy hot dog store, a shoe store, a gym, a sushi place, and a cupcake bakery! Love it. I also headed up to Indiana at the end of the month for my cousin Alex's beautiful wedding. It was gorgeous and we all had a great time!

July: The Bakers came to visit for Fourth of July! We introduced them to the great state of TN and hung out on the roof watching fireworks. We also went to Gattlinburg and met Smokey the Bear. Perfect.
I seriously love the 4th of July!

August: Our very first nephew, George Alden Baker is born on July 22nd and we trek back out to Kansas to visit him. We are in love with this child.
Baby George, you are the person of 2010. Seriously! You changed lives dude. Especially Zach and Audrey's!

September: Caleb gets his hair cut for charity. We went whitewater rafting and to a rave. And we worked. A lot.
Whitewater rafting and a rave. We sound so cool.

October: My parents came to visit. We went to Orlando for our one year wedding anniversary, loved HP at Universal! And Zach, Aud, and sweet baby George came to visit. Super fun month!
October was def my favorite month!

November: We went for a brief visit home. I saw my sweet Grandma Voth and my bffs. And George of course. Thanksgiving was at Caleb's cowoker, Jim's house and we had a great time shooting guns and riding horses. We also woke up at 3am to buy gifts on Black Friday!

December: I baked. A lot. We partied it up with Kiewit and had a fun Christmas together!

Oh 2010. A year full of change. We have been so blessed with great jobs, supportive family, and a God who has been with us every step of the way.

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'"

Blessings to you as you wrap up 2010 and start 2011! I can't wait to see what it will bring!
