    Great video. I love doing these too… when we’re old and gray(er) we will love these dearly. I look back at ones I did for kid’s birthdays 5 years ago and I just melt.

    Happy New Year, Armstrong Family!

    The video is awesome! I’m very glad I found your blog – I SO enjoy reading what you write. And I loved your recent photo of flying in to SLC – we often fly in there on our way to WY and the view is outstanding. Wishing you all a wonderful 2012…and a year that’s not filled with doctor’s visits! xoxo

    Happy New Year Armstrongs. I love this video–every year, I think I need to do one and then…well life happens.

    Inspired to think about it again.

    Happy New Year to you and your family. Enjoy San Francisco!

    And thank you for the inspirational running video. What a touching story.

    I hope the coming year is a great one for the Armstrongs. Thank you and Jon for sharing your talents and family with us.

    Love the video, love you. Thanks for everything, H-dawg.

    Your blog was my first blog, back in 2003 or 2004? I still visit here daily. Thanks for a place to go. Y’all are entertaining.

    Happy New Year.

    This life: gorgeous, tender, hilarious, heart-wrenching, glorious, hard, touching. Thanks for sharing your life and joy (and heartbreak) with us all. Happiest of new years to you and yours.

    Brava, Heather.
    Keep on keeping on, chickie.
    Happy New Year.

    we cannot know what it feels like on your inside
    from our out side peeping in
    awkwardly bent to the screen

    the portal shows
    the work of your resonant self
    shining with veracity
    into the mirror of our experience

    (you are getting better)

  • Amy J.

    You’ve had quite a year Heather. Here’s to hoping the new one is just as adventurous, yet not as painful :) .

    I don’t know if I got prompted by your videos from the year or what, but I’ve been doing a year in photos retrospective for a few years now as well.


    Happy New Year to you guys.

    Can I just say…it’s almost 2012 and I have yet to see a single picture of anything holiday oriented. I’m kind of disappointed. Actually, I’m a LOT disappointed. No artsy shots super close up of a Christmas tree, no pics of Chuck balancing a glass of eggnog…where’s the love?

  • jessiCat

    Happy Happy New Year, Armstrongs!!! We love y’all and thank you for sharing yourselves with us! Also, allowing us a whole community to distribute the crazy amongst ourselves! :)

  • blairyates

    You had quite the 2011!! Cheers to you and your family. I’d be honored if you would follow my blog, http://www.whatifoundwhilewalkingaround.com and read about my journey towards weight loss, healthy living, and my 2012 NY resolution – complete a triathlon!

    Excellent video and music.

  • bertski

    Enjoyed the ride through 2011. May 2012 present more healthy challenges and present love and prosperity to you and your family. Thank you!

  • rawkfemme

    Happy New Year! You inspired me and my husband to give Paleo a try in 2012. I’m even dusting off my old blog to help track my progress.

    Here’s to a happy and healthy 2012!

  • TurdFerguson

    I always get a little twinge when I watch the year end video & see how your girls are growing. I’ve made “Year in Review” videos of my granddaughters & our family the last couple of years & it always brings a tear to my eyes. My video locales aren’t nearly as exotic as yours, but I love to see all you accomplished. Keep up the good work, Heather. Happy & healthy New Years to you & yours.

    Dooce! Happy new year. I had read Maggie’s blog entry about buying new undies for the new year, so I was in that lingerie department on the afternoon of the 31st WHEN YOU WERE! I was also being over-stimulated by all that nylon, and you were giggling with your friend. I almost said ~hi~ but then felt very weird, so I bought my cute hip-hugging panties and split. Glad you had fun in SF.

    A pictures says more than a thousand words and a clip like this, oh well, let just say it depicts very well the richness and blessings in your lives. Delightful!
