A Mom's Year in Review - My Favorite Family Moments of 2011

2011 marked my first full year of blogging. I LOVE being able to look back through the blog posts at all the things we did throughout the year. We shared so much here, yet there is a lot that never made it onto the blog. Hard to believe, I know, but it's true!

2011 was a great year for our little family. I wanted to recap the year for the Lil Divas & relive our favorite moments. I am actually working on a photo book for us but I put together a quick list of my Fave Family Moments of 2011 to share with the Lil Divas & the Hubby and I decided to share it here as well since this blog was such a big part of our lives in 2011. Hopefully one day, the girls will look back at all of this fondly. I know I definitely will.

Beware - this post is photo heavy! I am an unapologetic "photoholic" when it comes to my Lil Divas  ;)
