Colin had fun with Garet's hat tonight. He kept putting it on backwards!
And the reason he has no clothes on..... I was cooking and opened a cabinet to get rice out. This cabinet is baby proofed, but it was only open for a few minutes while I got the rice. I saw Colin get in there, but didn't think too much of it. Then he said "Mommy. Mommy. Mommmmmy. Mommmmmy." When I looked, I saw that he was covered with cocoa powder! It was all over him, the cabinet, the floor..... Can't believe I didn't get a picture! But here he is afterwards! =)
The weather has been awesome the past few days! We loaded up and went biking around Lake Waccamaw. Colin loved riding on the bike... he seemed more interested in watching me bike beside them than looking around though! We had a picnic near this pier, it was so much fun!
There is a playgroup here that we have gone to about 6 months ago, but now that Colin is so mobile we decided to try again... he LOVED it! The place where we met was so kid friendly! I could just let Colin go (it was a big room with books, games, toys, bean bags, etc). He was so busy running around - it was great!
We had an eventful day! We drove to Southport to see Garet's aunt, then we went to see his Grandma Beane (Colin's great grandmother!), then we stopped by my aunts beach house and saw my mom, my two aunts and their cousin! And we still had time to watch 2 football games last night!
Colin likes to grab his books then come sit on our laps, or when we aren't around.... he goes to sit on Suzi. Poor sweet Suzi... sometimes (like today) she just sits there, other times she is up and out of the room before Colin can get situated!
We went on a hike today, it was soooo pretty outside! All of us went - Garet, Colin, Suzi and me, and we had a fun picnic! When we were finished, we let Colin run through this field on the way back to the car.
Our heat isn't working downstairs... so this morning I bundled Colin in this robe when he came down for breakfast! (thanks to whichever sister handed that down to us!) At least his room upstairs is nice and toasty!
So I made it! A whole year of pictures!
I wanted to do something with all my pictures - and a book would have been just too expensive! (I mean really... 365 pages?!) So, I decided to make a calendar. I made a college of all the pictures I took durning the month and put them on that month of the calendar for the new year. That way I can see a year ago what we/Colin looked like last year at the same time! Here is January:

I will try to remember to post each month from last year at the beginning of each month of this year.
So I am going to atttempt to do "A Beane A Day" this year too. I really like that it makes me take a picture everyday... even if it is just of us doing laundry =) Hey that's life right?! I love that it gives me all these pics to look back on, because life just happens so fast!
(We had tons of outtakes of this picture!)
We had such a wonderful year! We just can't thank God enough for blessing us with such a wonderful family and friends! Looking forward to seeing what 2012 has in store!
