Goodbye 2012!

2012 was a good year for us. We started the year off in a wonderful place as a family and we have so many memories of times together this year. Both kids started going to school full time and Noah graduated! We've laughed and cried and worked hard...but we've had lots of fun and spent time with family and great friends. We start this year with big goals and we will continue working hard and playing harder. Enjoy some pictures from the past year and stay tuned for updates from our crazy life through 2013. Happy New Year Everyone!!

We started the year off with our annual ski trip and spent lots of time snuggling on Baby Rowan!

Izabel continued improving in gymnastics and met her favorite Princess Belle. Tanner turned three and we started spending our days in the pool and at the beach. Aunt Theresa graduated from ODU and Noah's family came to town to celebrate. We had a wonderful visit!

More beach days and the 4th of July were a blast. The kids got really good at bowling with their summer pass. Noah took the kids to Vermont and they did lots of fun activities. When school was back in session both kids looked much older and began spending the day learning through play.

Beauty and the Beast went trick-or-treating on Halloween and we celebrated Noah's graduation! I passed my National Board Teaching certification and we enjoyed our Christmas break.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas this year and everyone was far too good to us! The kids got a huge new swing set thanks to Mimi, Papa, Grandpa, and Aunt Theresa. We are so thankful that everyone went on this with us! We are also very thankful for Auntie Ann, Uncle JK, Joe and Sherri for helping to build it just in time for Christmas and to Gigi for keeping the kids occupied during the process. We have been playing all week and have been enjoying the swing set along with the 47 puzzles the kids received - that was all they asked for! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!!
