Songer Family Update

Here's our most recent family photo:

Anika, Rosalie, Casey, Clarissa, Edith, Anderson, Meredith

Some random facts about our life in 2010--

Birthdays celebrated: 7
Total ages combined by the end of the year: 115
Number of inches added to our total height: 13
Number of pounds added to our total weight: Classified
Number of broken bones: Zero! (aside from Casey's annual Church Ball rib re-cracking)
Number of stitches:6--all on Anderson's head
Number of haircuts done by a toddler on herself: 3
Number of haircuts our son allowed on himself: Not nearly enough
Sets of braces put on a 13 year-old girl: 1 (trust me, they're there)
Years of marriage: 15 (otherwise known as the appliance replacement anniversary)

A couple of cool things we did this year--
Casey and Clarissa got to be extras in a movie made locally by the LDS church.
Casey and I got scuba certified and dived in the Caribbean during my parents' 50th wedding anniversary cruise. That was cool.
Lived through it all--you know, everyday life multiplied by 7 people over the course of 365 days=1 truly astounding experience. Can't wait to do it again.

Rosalie says

Rosalie slouched up to me, and in her most pathetic voice said, "Mom, my heart is broken!"
I asked, "What happened?"
"Meredith bit it. And kicked it."
