2013 was a year filled with many wonderful memories and blessings for our family, as well as many times of sadness and heartbreak. I tried very hard to find the good in all things and I feel like those difficulties we faced only brought us closer together and closer to our Lord. I feel like I “grew up” a lot this year. I’ve become stronger emotionally than I ever thought possible, I’ve become more confident in my faith and better able to seek Jesus in all aspects of life.
It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come in just one year!!! I love this chance to take a look back over all of our biggest moments from each month!
The big thing this month was weaning Britt!
We went to PCB for Valentine’s Day! I LOVED that trip!!!
We celebrated Kye’s 4th Birthday with his fun firetruck themed party
We also started our journey with Kye’s growth delay concerns
Britt graduated from survival swim!!!
I had my foot surgery (hopefully my only foot surgery…)
Britt had her first official girl day with a trip to the strawberry patch!
We surprised Kye with a (much needed!) trip to DISNEY!

and Zach and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary with a trip to Cozumel!
Kye attended golf camp with Colt
and we enjoyed our yearly family golf outing for Father’s Day
Casey and I had a blast on our girl’s trip to Memphis!
We had probably our best trip yet to St Augustine for the 4th!
The kids and I also did our yearly Fire Station Visit

Our whole family was in shock when Austin passed away unexpectedly and losing him at such a young age has changed us all forever.
Sweet Julia came to visit which brought us such joy at the end of summer!

Zach and I spent our little Christmas together freezing in NYC
And everyone was sick for Christmas…but we loved it anyway 🙂
We also made our exciting announcement that sets up 2014 to be an amazing year for our family!
I am so thankful for all of our many blessings this past year and am looking forward to the many amazing memories that are sure to come in 2014!
You can see past years here, can I just say I LOVE how long I’ve been blogging now?!?! It’s SO awesome to be able to go back over the past five years of our lives!!!
