Abbie had a great 2006 recap, and as any good blogger would, I copied her idea!!

JanuaryLiv Alexandra Manaia was born on the 25th at 4:09pm.

Liv's blessing day at 11 days old. Pictured here with Granddad who made the trip up from Texas for the occasion!

Sei takes a surf trip to Cali . This was my Valentine's day/"I'm sorry I'm so hormonal" gift to him.


We have Isabel assessed at a gym and even though she has had no formal training she is put on a competitive gymnastics team immediately!

After 5 years, Sei resigns as a deputy and a member of the county S.W.A.T. team in order to pursue his dream of opening a youth residential treatment facility.

I loved your review! I realized there is a lot I missed because I didn't find your blog until later. Your kids are adorable. You have a lot to be proud of!

Suzanne said...

Fun Year in Review! I'm like Mel, I didn't find your blog until later so it was fun to see the things that happened to you earlier in the year! You have such a sweet family and I've enjoyed getting to know you better! :)

Boy, just reading about your year wore me out! Baby and a new house in the same year?! We did that in 2005 and it was exhuasting!

I turned 30 this year too. It's crazy how fast time flies. I remember thinking 30 was old not too long ago. And here I am, an old mother goose.

The kiddos are adorable!
