2010 - My year in review (Part 1)

What a year! 2010 seemed to have a bit of everything for me and my family, from the joys of welcoming a new baby into the world to saying a very sad goodbye to our beloved "Nanna", Anthony's team winning the local and international mines rescue competitions, selling our house, living with the inlaws and moving to a new house! I thought that since I only started my blog recently, I would share some highlights of my year along with a favourite layout for each month.


On January 6th, we welcomed our baby boy, "Mason Anthony" into the world! OMG, I can't believe it has almost been a whole year since his birth! He is now such a treasured member of our family and has such a little personality! We love him to bits. We also celebrated Jared's 3rd birthday with a party with his little friends and a family get together.... needless to say that I was a busy Mummy that month and had no time to scrapbook! So.... here is a photo of my boy, Mason with proud Dad and big brother.


In February, I had a little more time and energy to get back into scrapbooking and running. Started off slow and steady with a total of 8 LO's for the month and about 2 to 3 short runs a week. Here is one of my fave LO's for the month. It was a Scrapbook Savvy 5-4-3-2-1 challenge. My husband and soul mate, Anthony.

We enjoyed a short family holiday in Darling Harbour this month which included trips to the zoo, Powerhouse museum and Luna Park. But the best part had to the the ride on the monorail... or was it the ferry ride?! It was great to just get away and enjoy time together. My fave LO for the month is of Jared "laughing at the waves". This one won the Savvy Guest DT spot for April! Yay me!


April was routine month with pre-school, swimming lessons, playgroup and gymnastics. I was also lucky enough to finally meet up with my best friend from highschool after 17 years! The LO I like best from April was a double of the kids at Belmore Basin for "Playgroup at the beach":


More effort was put into getting back into shape this month. I took up PT sessions with a good friend of mine and started training for the city to surf. I just love this photo of Jared and Mason, so the LO "You crack me up" has to be my fave for May!


June was a big month for us.... we bought a block of land and began making arrangements to sell our house! I still managed to do a bit of scrapbooking in between.... but I couldn't choose a fave from these two:

"Becoming Mrs. Zanotto"

and "The romance of Italy":

Well, that's half the year done... I will be back soon to share more LO's very soon! Thanks for looking :)
