So I don't have any cool pictures to post, but we have been having a great 2011.  Mike and I went snowboarding today for the second time this month.  We are so fortunate to have family who is so willing to watch Izzy.  I didn't go snowboarding at all last winter because Izzy was just born; I forgot how much I enjoy it.  I am finally able to go toe to heel side easily and I'm loving it.
We purchased our Costa Rica tickets.  I am very excited for a couples trip; this will be our first long trip without Izzy.  I must admit I do have some anxiety.  I have never been away from Izzy for that long, so I don't know how I will handle it.  I'm sure I will miss her like crazy! Fortunately, Mike's mom is coming out to take care of her so I know she will be in good hands.  And we will make it up to Izzy in April by taking her to Disney World!!
I will try to get some pictures soon and have something more excited to post!!

Christmas morning 2010

We spent Christmas in DC with the Bergeron Family.  On Christmas Eve, everyone opened their presents from Secret Santa and the grandkids opened their presents from Mami and Papi.  

Benson, Abi, and Izzy opening their present on Christmas Eve.  Abi and Izzy needed some help, but Benson knew exactly what was going on. 

 The 3 grandkids got matching pajamas from Mami and Papi, so they put them on Christmas Eve.

 Christmas morning.  Izzy and some of her gifts.  She is ready to tear the paper!

2009 Christmas.  I am trying to start a tradition and take a picture of Izzy each Christmas with her gifts in her Christmas pajamas.  She has changed so much in a year!

She needed some help getting started. 

 She loves books.  Luckily, we got some French books so she can start learning (along with Mommy).
Izzy got a bath toy from Uncle Matt and you can tell from her face that she loves it.

She loves to play with Mommy and Daddy's laptops so she got one of her own, which she loves.  But as you can tell opening presents wore her out and she is ready for bed. 

 Benson got a laptop too, but the funny thing was they kept switching and Benson would play with Izzy's and Izzy liked his more.
 Bergeron Family Christmas morning 2010
 After we finished opening presents, we had a big breakfast.  Here are the chefs hard at work.
 Lots of food!  Yes, those are beans for breakfast; it's a French Canadian thing.
 Christmas Dinner dress.
 My Mom found this super cute Christmas dress for Izzy to wear.  It's a little big so it might even fit next year!
 Christmas 2010.  I told Mike he should put on a matching shirt, but he thought his Marley's shirt was appropriate.  I should have told him to smile normally too!!  Not that he would have listened....

We had a great Christmas and look forward to 2011!!
