A new year

It's hard to believe 2013 has come and gone.  Summer became a pretty good roller skater over the year.  We love to go skating together, sometimes with friends.  We are actually going to meet up with some later this week for a skate date.  I love the fact that she holds my hand as we skate around the rink.  We rarely fall, but we did have a tumble last week that involved her falling and me landing on top of her.  She was the more injured one, but after a few minutes of sitting and holding her ice water up to her red cheek, we were back out on our skates.  Good times!!!

We have been enjoying relaxing at the house over the Christmas break.  I only wish it could last a few more weeks! She will be starting basketball next week.  She has one practice before her first game so it should be interesting.  Her daddy has been teaching her some skills, and she's getting to be pretty good at dribbling.  I can't wait to see her out on the court. She may also be starting up aerials again soon.  That is her true passion as she currently uses her air pogo for practice, making up dances to Justin Bieber songs.  So adorable she is!!!

Christmas was good to her again this year.  Santa brought her a remote control helicopter, but it lasted less than 48 hours out of the box before the propeller broke.  Bummer!  She got more things than I can remember, but one of her favorites was Blokus.  Being the nature girl she is, I got her a bird call, a lighting bug lantern, shell collecting bags, and a bird house.   She also got the electric scooter she asked her daddy for.  Oh and, let's not forget Sparkles her new bunny build-a-bear that she just had to have when she saw the sales ad. 

One of the current crazes going around are Rainbow Looms which she received a few months ago from her friend Abby.  She got several new colors of bands for Christmas and has been trying to come up with new bracelet designs on her on in the mornings when she gets up.  I think I will be getting her the how-to guide at some point in the future as her designs often do not end up making a bracelet.  She doesn't get as frustrated as I would, but just gives it more thought.  I love her determination!

I love her soooo much! Her sweet face just melts my heart. I can't give her enough hugs and kisses.  Snuggling with her on the couch is amazing.  I feel so blessed to be raising her and watching her grow.  I can't wait to see what this new year has in store for us!  Hopefully more blogging so I can capture all the wonderful memories.
