cousin pictures

Every year when everyone is together (which is usually only at the holidays) Jamie’s family takes a cousin picture.  Last year they (the Moms and Dads/ Aunts and Uncles) made every cousin a book with all of the pictures- it was so cool to see everyone grow up from year to year.  And also pretty darn funny to see some of the clothing (a lot of it was from the 80’s and early 90’s).  This year Jay (since he is a cousin too) was included in the picture.  I can’t wait to see this picture continue to grow as the family continues to grow!

christmas catch up…

We took so many pictures over the holidays and I have been steadily trying to play catch up.  I have finally sorted through all of our holiday ones so here they are…

Sit back, relax and stay awhile :-)

2010 in pictures

2010 has been a blessed and wonderful year for us.  However, I am super excited to see all that 2011 has in store for us!  Happy New Year Everyone!

January- We waited around, finished up last minute baby preparations and welcomed James Vickers Perreault Jr to our family.

February- We celebrated Valentines Day with our little love bug, enjoyed the Olympics, cuddled a lot and didn’t get much sleep.

March- We had visitors from Cananda (Great Grandma and Great Auntie Deb) and Asheville (Aunt Nicole), we spent a lot of time outside enjoying the weather and Daddy went back to work part time.

April- We celebrated Jay’s first Easter and Earth Day and we started sleeping through the night frequently.

May- We celebrated our first Mother’s Day, Jay laughed and rolled over for the first time, he met some more of his cousins (Mary Beth and Sean) and we took our first swim.

June- We celebrated our first Father’s Day, Jay started sitting up on his own and eating solid foods and we had another visit from Aunt Nicole.

July- We celebrated Canada Day, the Fourth of July, Jay’s baptism and Mom’s 28th birthday.

August- We sat in grass for the first time without a blanket, we enjoyed some really nice afternoons outside and we started scooting around on our belly.

September- We started going to the Library Storytime, planted our first garden, played at the park in the swings a lot, began crawling and we took our first trip to Terra Ceia.

October- Our little Jay Bird got his first set of wings, we ate our fill for Canadian Thanksgiving and we celebrated Daddy’s 30th birthday.

November- We (Jamie and I) celebrated 5 years of knowing each other, we hung out in the hammock a whole lot and we cruised to the Bahamas and Key West.

December- We decorated our house for the holidays, we (Kristen) baked a ton and we celebrated the holidays with tons of family.

people we miss…

Jamie, Jay and I are blessed to have so many family members living close by.  We are frequently able to celebrate occasions, show off Jay’s new tricks and just spend good quality time with the people that we love.  However, for as many people that live close by there are that many and more that don’t live near us.  We are so grateful for all of the time that we do get to spend with them but hope they know that it’s not as much as we would like to.

Here are just a few pictures from some of our recent (this is a relative term) visitors.  We miss you all, those pictured and those not, terribly and wish we could see you more often!!  Love you all…

Uncle Scott and Auntie Frannie- Sorry Scott, I don’t have a recent picture of you and Jay :-( We will have to rectify that when we see you all later this month!
