My birthday, Kristi's birthday, and Kristi's birthday party.
We didn't do anything special for my birthday. We had an amazing party for Kristi down at the Bentzel's house. The instructor of the hula-hoop troop we saw earlier this year also does birthday parties, bridal showers, etc. Kristi was so excited after seeing the troop that she just had to have Angel host her birthday party! It was such a blast and even the adults got in on the fun!

This wasn't a very eventful month.
Trin continues to grow (she's pretty much been in the 85th percentile since birth!
I had my first in-home party at Shari's as a Thirty-One consultant. It was awesome and better than I hoped for!
Kristi started second grade <3 p="p">3>

I had my biggest sales month with my biggest in-home party.
Our annual beach trip! Here's a few photo high-lights:
|First time boogie boarding|
|First wipe-out (she wasn't too amused)|
|My first Shillelaigh (ew!)|
|She's so silly!|
|First time putting her hands in the sand|
|Cartwheeling is HARD in the sand|

|One of my all-time favorites|
|Her first time flying a "real" kite|
We had a blast with the Echterlings again this year! It was a very nice, relaxing time. Megan and I got some knitting accomplished while sitting on Salty Yarn's porch and watching the kids play in the sand across the way. Next year is definitely going to be interesting... More on that in a few!
Trinity started crawling this month (and wants to learn to knit).
Kristi had her first camping, bon-fire, and s'mores experience (in our backyard).
She also participated in Crazy Hat/Hair Day at school!
Our family found out this month that it will be expanding again in June, the 22nd to be exact! <3 p="p">3>
We decorated our Christmas tree and put up most of the decorations.
We spent Thanksgiving with the Bentzel's, Black Friday shopping, and saw the new Twilight movie (and it was uh-mazing!).
Trinity is now standing up on EVERYTHING! She had her 9 mo check-up and is still in the 85th percentile for height and weight! She's eating and sleeping well and is doing great! She's hitting all her milestones either early or on-time. :-)
I can't believe it's the beginning of December already. This year has really flown by! I'll definitely try to update this more often because as you can see, reader's digest versions just aren't in my vocab! Until next time, much love and many blessings!
