Welcome 2011!

2010 was an awesome year!  Malek and I drove to SA for the Alamo Bowl (MSU vs Texas Tech) in Jan, my brother was married in Feb, Malek and I were married in March and I received a new job/promotion at work, in April we sold my house and bought a new house together in Pflugerville, we ran the Deutschen Pfest 5K together as a family in May, went on a family camping trip (w/ the kids and my parents) to Pokagon camp grounds and Michigan in June, threw our housewarming party in July, finished my 101 in August and found out I'm pregnant, went to the Body Exhibit in Sept, had our annual Halloween Spooktacular in October, took Malek and the kids to the Renaissance festival (their 1st time) in Nov, and had our entire family in town for the holidays - not to mention finished many home improvement projects and worked on the nursery.  Malek turned 40 this Dec and we rang in the new year with family and friends.

2010 is the last year in which I will simply be known as Christina (or Tina), 2011 brings with it a new name and identity - one which I will keep for the rest of my life, regardless of the path my journey takes...Mother!

Now it's onto an even more exciting year and a new chapter in our lives, hello 2011!  We are anxiously awaiting the birth of our son, Ryland Carter Malek, in April and my parents will move to TX by the end of the year.  I think this year my new years resolution will be to try and let go of my expectations.  I know with a new baby in our lives that my house will not always be clean, things will not always go my way nor will I get to do all the things I want.  There will be times I'll be overwhelmed and many sleepless nights.  God grant me patience, for I know I need more than I have and I will be tested.  I will have my failures and successes and many lessons learned; but it will all be worth it for there will be a whole new take on wonder, a whole new meaning of love and an amazing future to experience with my family.
