An End to the Year of the Sushi

Several years ago we started giving each year a food. One year it was the year of the pork chop. The year after that was the year of the shrimp. And we would eat that food on New Years' day to commemorate the start of that year.

Last year was the year of the sushi.

Now, we didn't take the kids out for raw fish. We usually eat our sushi in the form of rolls with crazy spicy sauces or the basic California roll. Or Wilson had fried rice and tried a roll. Either way, it was the Year of the Sushi.

So the Year of the Sushi was a fun year. We started off January with some work around the house with some custom window treatments. We had 14 inches of snow in February. We celebrated Wilson and Reagan's birthdays at home, and then took them to Great Wolf Lodge which is an indoor waterpark. I finished some of the stops on the burger tour, and Jolene started home cooking delicious pies, chicken pot pies, and other delicious meals that led us to our vegetarian summer. Which was great!

We also bought mountain bikes and went biking in Texas and Missouri. We went on vacation to Six Flags and I rode rollercoasters with a concussion (we found out later that I had a little bit of head trauma from my biking accident).

We had the Davidsons and Crouches here for Thanksgiving, and ended the year with a great Christmas. And Reagan used her Christmas money to get her ears pierced at the end of the year.

So, I downloaded the pictures from Jolene and my iPhones and uploaded them here. You can see a look of our year through our mobile photos!
