Ha ha! That titles rhymes! Yesterday, I left you all off in June. Let’s see what the rest of the year brought.
In July, Ry and I hit the woods and went camping for the weekend! We headed back home early though because we were asked to be my nephew’s God parents!
In the middle of July Ryan and I got our engagement pictures taken and the next day a huge storm caused a tree to fall on the road!
Ryan and I started the month out right by going on a date to The Keg and to see The Lion King. That weekend we also went to see the final Harry Potter movie with friends Sharon and Wayne.
By the middle of August we decided to surprise and celebrate my parents anniversary by seeing the fire works at Lac Leamy for the first time.
We also found the bridesmaid dresses in a fun shopping trip in August.
Ryan and I ended the month off by heading to Markham to attend the wedding of Matt and my college friend, Whitney.
Early September around these parts usually means the fair for most. Although I did attend one evening the rest of the long weekend was spent on the road with my friend and bridesmaid, Amanda! We were headed west!
My awesome Grandma turned 90!
While leaving my Grandma’s 90th birthday party I got a amazing text from Rebekka telling me that she was now engaged! Little did she know I had been anticipating this call since her Fiancé, Josh, had asked me to help him pick her ring! :-)
Thanksgiving activities brought on a whirl wind of activity between Cirque De Soleil show, thanksgiving meals and my 24th Birthday!
I was so excited this year to participate in our hometown’s car rally for the very first time!
By the end of the month we helped my brother with the shipment of his 9000 hens, went to a musical and went to see a hockey game in Ottawa!
I faced my fears and showcased my crafting abilities by putting a craft table in the local Craft and Bake Sale.
We finished off the month with the Mountainview Christmas party, crafting and getting bridesmaid dresses!
The month of December is always an exciting time because of Christmas. However, this year we had two other little presents to celebrate.
On December 4th, friends Evan and Josee welcome their little boy, Landyn Cole to the world!
And on December 7th friends Chad and Priscilla welcomed baby girl Willow Ann! Such an exciting time with new little lives!
At the beginning of December Ryan and I took a trip up to North Bay to visit his family. We had a great time chatting, playing games and catching up!
The weekend after that Ryan’s niece and nephew stayed over and we all had a blast at the Santa Claus Parade.
There was only one weekend left until Christmas arrived and we did it by celebrating with lots of friends and a Christmas pageant.
Finally, another Christmas passed by. A very happy yet emotional one for me as it is my last unwed Christmas! We had a great time celebrating over the whole weekend!
Wow! What a busy, eventful, at times stressful but AMAZING year! I can’t believe everything that has happened! I am so thankful for all of the wonderful things that happened to me in the last year and I am very excited and hopeful for 2012!
See you next year!
