Also in January, we held a "Scary! Dylan's a Teenager!" party for his 13th birthday.
. . .with appropriately scary and creepy treats.
Conor moved from his crib to a big boy bed.
My stepson, Sean, turned 11 and requested I make him clam chowder in homemade bread bowls.
We bought a family membership to the Los Angeles Zoo and took Conor for his first visit.
And attended the Hannah Montana movie premiere.
In May, my kids and Adam spoiled me for my birthday, and then for Mother's Day. Oh, and I got my hair cut.
But the biggest event during May, was Dylan running the L.A. Marathon!
And Lyndsay finished her first year of high school, earning the highest A in Honors Biology in her school, though she had never taken Biology before and had to work very, very hard. (This is her Bio teacher, who is now her AP Biology teacher this year.)
In July, Adam and I ate ice cream to celebrate four years of marriage. Anniversaries are great, but please know, I'll eat ice cream to celebrate just about anything.
And like every year, I sent my three big kids off to Arizona to spend the summer with their dad.
But just before they left, we found this darling baby possum lost from his mama (who was undoubtedly sleeping away the daytime hours). I wonder what became of him.
In August, Conor turned 3!
In December, I took Lyndsay and Dylan to see New Moon, as we saw Twilight last year.
