2013 In Review

Happy New Year’s Eve.  Time to look back a reflect on the past year before jumping into whatever 2014 holds.  I put together this quick overview of our 2013 – lots of wonderful outings and experiences with family. Just looking at it makes me thankful for all the blessing the year brought.


Here is a look at each side a bit bigger.

A Bit of Our Holiday Season

At Thanksgiving, my mom arrives armed with her camera, tripod and props to take photos for our Christmas card.  Our card turned out fabulous, but I also love the funny photos and ‘outtakes’ that result from the photo shoot.

One of the major shopping districts in our area hosts Snowflake Lane, which includes a drum line performance, winter characters on parade and ‘snow’ falling from the sky.  It is one of my, Mya and Mamma’s favorite traditions and the boys all come along too.  This year’s event was quite soggy.
