In Loving Memory
We started our year out hard with the loss of my family’s matriarch. My great-grandmother passed away in February of this year at the age of 94. As sad as we were to see her go, we know that she is in a much better place.
Bailey had surgery to remove tubes from her ears. This had been a long 14 month struggle with the tubes but they were finally out of her ears.
We also found out we were pregnant with baby #3 this month. It was a joyous surprise for us all.
Joel and I celebrated our 4th anniversary in early July. Our anniversary present was finding out that we were having a baby boy. We shared this news with our families with a fun photo shoot and care package with surprise items. It was a fun way to share this special news.
The girls celebrated their 3rd birthday. They had a blast at their princess party with a giant water slide. They are still talking about their party today.
Halloween – the girls dressed up as Elsa and Anna from the movie Frozen. They still talk about their fun costumes and how they got to go trick or treating.
Thanksgiving and Christmas were both small for us this year. It was just us for both holidays as I am not comfortable with traveling. This was our first holiday season to stay at home and not be surrounded with our large families. It was bitter-sweet. We missed seeing all of our loved ones but enjoyed the fact that we did not travel several hours in the car.
This year we have traveled to Houston, East Texas, Austin, and San Antonio.
Looking Forward To In 2016
This next year we are looking forward to the birth of our son, which could be at any time.
Joel and I have a trip to New Orleans for a wedding in the spring that we are very excited about. It will be our first time away from the new baby but it will be a fun getaway weekend for us.
May your year be wonderful and a blessing.
